    An advanced 'VTEC'

     



    Hello.
    At http://www.pattakon.com/vvar/HelpRoll.htm you can see another version of our variable valve actuation system (this time with rollers).
    The system is so close to Honda’s VTEC (in S2000, CivicTypeR etc) and at the same time it is so different in operation, you will be stunned.
    Just take a look.
    Thank you
    Manolis Pattakos

    Looks like you have really done allot of homework Manolis. I hope the vehicle manufacturers take a serious look at what you have done.

    Streets: I don't like (japanese) imports any more than you do but you have to admit that these "ricer" boys are ahead of our down home boys when it comes to automobile technology.

    Stop, think, then speak (or type).

    I'm not belittling all your years of knowledge and experience but when it comes to the new cars you seem to be a little behind. Time to read up.

    The wheelie bars on front wheel drive cars do in fact help. Front wheel drive cars have a nasty habit of trying to kick the front wheels off the pavement when power is applied. This is called "wheel hop". The wheelie bars help keep the front wheels planted during launch and gear changes. Also if configured correctly the wheelie bars transfer much needed weight to the front wheels.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.
