In the previous article, we have discussed the use of the suspension for the 4WD vehicles. The main purpose is to make the car more than the original while still quiet, dress to make the car cornering. Thus, the safety of SUVs with the focus already high over the road surface has been improved.
We still have not completely forget the image of Hanoi streets under 1 meter deep flood water after heavy rains this season not long ago. Series of car breaks down, water entering the interior cabin damage, short-circuiting. Heavier is under inlet duct into the engine compartment causing water hammer, hand curved wings and broken engine block. Damage stuffy nearly half the value of the car.
Surely many people know, the principle of operation of the internal combustion engine as the fuel is mixed with oxygen and compressed, then burned in the cylinder creates heat and energy generated for vehicle operation. Exhaust ventilation system play a role critical in fuel combustion processes. Often the air is sucked from the suction chamber placed in the machine, through intake system into carburetor parts to and from there go into the combustion chamber.
The position of the inlet mouth is the cause of the problems related to water hammer when disaster amphibious vehicle on 50cm or higher depending on the vehicle. Often the inlet mouth is placed between 2 layers of learning about the body on the front wheels, the car can be placed in front of the wheels. When the car forward, if the water level is higher than wheels, car engine died away due to water entering the machine according gio.Do smoking neckline is just potential problems when traveling in the city has a car go off-road, the “snorkel” is both a story.
Go off-road, outside the mountain slopes there are two interesting ones: wading and wading mud. Vietnam is a tropical country with sunny climates rainy. Due to such characteristics, topography of rivers, streams, groundwater abound, there are just 500 meters trip back to cross a creek and 50 meters in breadth and depth of 1 meter of water can. Why go off-road vehicles Amphibious not many stars, while the car also, but not the city’s going to be water hammer?
There is a part that few people know of its true, long neck department inlet connections, also known as breathing tube (snorkel) for the 4WD vehicles. Vehicles fitted with snorkel, stock inlet duocnang add about 1 meter higher than the original design, thus, capable of amphibious vehicle course be raised significantly.
No course for its extensive snorkel, although there are a few different brands but snorkel and oldest reputation is still effective SAFARI snorkel originating in Australia.
With the amount of investment is not worth much compared to the value of the car (about 500 USD), car owners can easily equip your car a snorkel. No matter how you go off-road or not, make sure the department will protect the vehicle if accidentally flooded the city.
The installation of the snorkel is also extremely simple, drill a hole of about 90 mm on the front bodywork, fitting into the breathing tube, breathing tube top has parts “water hazard” so that when it rains or car wash water on air filter system.
A few simple operations with silicon sealant ring is tightened and your car is ready to conquer the roads submerged under meters of water, before the admiring astonishment of passers. In addition to anti-flooding, snorkel also help your car looks strong, sophisticated and sporty.
When riding on the road, thanks to the air inlet swivel neck forward, the wind will flow better help fuel combustion process be thorough, so when the car is running loading and no snorkel.
The only downside, if you give it a disadvantage, is fitted with a snorkel when you are forced to drill bodywork. For many people, doing so means that the car lost zin. In fact, when selling the car, if the car has been fitted with a snorkel you should not remove it. If car buyers clarification on the use of snorkel, even this is a car parts make you sold because the price is being protected from flooded roads.
After suspension system equipped with snorkel and you can think of exploring further and more adventurous.
