Hydrogen to breathe new life into internal combustion?

changagoidem Features | Hydrogen to breathe new life into internal combustion?

Stroll into any motor accessories shop and you'll find a wall of brightly coloured bottles, the contents of which can be tipped into your fuel tank. They claim to make your automobile travel further, drive smoother, emit less and, probably put the colour back in your hair while they're at it. Those of them that aren't snake-oil are usually just a form of detergent that washes out your fuel injectors, and this business of adding additives to your fuel has thusly become largely derided, often ignored.

CGON, a British start-up, reckons that it has developed a system that was once…

Video break: 10,000rpm battle

changagoidem Features | Video break: 10,000rpm battle

No-one can obsess over automobiles like the Japanese. Their culture has reached legendary status among Irish enthusiasts, as is evidenced by the huge amounts of performance imports on our roads. This video features lots of VTEC and even an Altezza, so JDM fans will be all over it.

Best Motoring was a Japanese institution, its reviews thorough and nerdy enough to sate the appetite of even the most hardcore Wangan wannabe. This particular video features a load of professional racing drivers thrashing some highly-tuned naturally-aspirated motors in an aptly-titled '10,000rpm battle'. Not surprisingly, Hondas feature prominently, though maybe not the…

changagoidem Features | What is eCall? The emergency-call system explained

Europe's eCall service will be made mandatory equipment on all automobiles sold within the EU from next April.

Previous legislation for vehicle safety has focused on the stuff that helps keep you out of an accident in the first place, such as electronic stability control and ABS braking, but eCall is designed to get the emergency services to you more quickly if you've had an accident.

The system, which is already offered by some automobile makers as an option, connects to your mobile phone. In the event of the automobile's airbags being deployed, and if it detects that you're not…

changagoidem Features | Video: to sit beside the best driver in the world

Forget going fast down a country lane in a road automobile. Forget computer games. Forget normal rally onboards. If you want to experience what being in a rally automobile is really like, this video is about as close as it gets without having to wear Nomex.

Filmed on some sort of potato by nine-time world champion co-driver Daniel Elena, your pilot is none other than Sebastien Loeb, the most successful driver in the history of rallying, and arguably the best driver in the world, period. The automobile is a Peugeot 306 Maxi, a screaming, 300hp, front-wheel drive quasi-Touring Automobile that…

changagoidem Features | Video: Ferrari F40 LM, Jacques Laffite and deck shoes

If you've never seen this video, a big treat awaits. It's one of the first things that I remember watching on YouTube (back in the days of dial-up internet), though the video below was uploaded in slightly better quality by a kind fan a couple of years ago.

At under three minutes long, it's a perfect tea-break filler. Some of you will be familiar with the name of Jacques Laffite, a Formula One driver back in the crazy days of the '70s and '80s. Jacques tamed the turbo F1 automobiles in their pomp before…

Rallylegend - a celebration of rallying history

changagoidem Features | Rallylegend - a celebration of rallying history

A spaceship. A Martini-liveried, four-wheeled spaceship being unloaded from a truck. That was most peoples' first glimpse of the Lancia Delta S4 as it landed in the UK ahead of the 1985 RAC Rally. Social media didn't exist back then, so few outside the enthusiast press and hardcore rally-supporting community would have seen the grainy, black-and-white images from the small-scale events that Abarth had entered with '038' prototypes. Fewer still would have heard it, but that was all about to change.

Lag is the enemy of any turbocharged engine, especially in a rallying application where throttle response and a wide…
