LET’S BRAKE IT DOWN: DISC VS DRUM

LET’S BRAKE IT DOWN: DISC VS DRUM-Advertising Mobility-Online South Africa - Blog Marizanne VD Linde
https://www.tradeyourvehicle.co.za

Braking technology has come a very long way since the hand lever. Drum brakes were revolutionary in their time, but are they still appropriate for modern cars when disc brakes seem so perfect? Read on to find out.

How Do Brakes Work?

Braking a car means slowing down the movement of the wheels by stepping on the brake pedal. Your braking system, drum or disc, applies friction or resistance to your wheels that gets converted into heat energy. The way your brakes do this is the main illustration of how disc and drum brakes differ.

Drum Brakes

Drum brakes are called this because of the drum design that houses the braking components. Inside the drum, you’ll find braking shoes. When you step on your brake pedal (which is connected to the braking system with fluid), these heat-resistant shoes are forced against the wheel to create friction to slow them down. The problem with drum brakes though, is that the heat that builds up due to the friction has nowhere to go. Heat builds up inside the drum and under stressful or strenuous conditions (like carrying a large load or going down a steep hill), this becomes a problem. Brakes are only effective as long as they can convert movement into heat, and when the brakes become worn down, they become saturated with heat and end up ineffective. Let’s face it, you don’t want your brakes failing as you come down a steep hill while carrying a heavy load. This problem of overheating and deterioration is solved with disc brakes.

Disc Brakes

Disc brakes are made up of a small rotor and a calliper. Inside this calliper, you’ll find two brake pads that go around the rotor. When you step on the brake pedal, these pads are clamped together to slow down the wheels. The main difference between drum and disc brakes is what happens to the heat energy that’s generated by the friction in the braking system. Thanks to not being housed in a drum, your disc braking system is very unlikely to overheat. This is because it is exposed to open air that cools the brakes much faster than they would have been cooled inside a drum. This also reduces the rate of deterioration and fading. Instead of having to replace the entire braking system, you can simply replace your brake pads instead.

Shouldn’t All Cars Have Disc Brakes?

Ideally, sure. Disc brakes are more effective and practical. But they’re also more expensive. Disc brakes were first used on high performance racing cars and eventually became popular with modern, everyday cars thanks to their safety. Many cars today have disc brakes in the front two wheels (because most of the stopping power comes from the front), and drum brakes at the back. This means that the car should be slightly more affordable than it would have been with disc brakes all around. However, this doesn’t mean that your back wheels’ brakes are ineffective or dangerous. Modern drum brakes have come a very long way and would probably by suitable for all four wheels. If you’re someone who just drives their car as a means to get from A to B, you’ll be perfectly safe. if you’re a race car driver, you’ll need a high-performance car with high-performance brakes to optimise your performance.

Regardless of which brakes you use, you should make sure to maintain them properly. Maintaining your brakes (a topic we’ll cover in another article) not only keeps you and others safe on the roads, but it will also save you a fortune in the long-run.

DISHONESTY IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY: HOW TO FIND TRANSPARENCY

There is a timeless stereotype that used car salespeople are at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to showing honesty to their customers. People expect to be cheated and act accordingly. Have these salespeople earned this bad reputation or have the actions of a small number of sleezy salespeople shaped the opinions of the public?

White Lies and Half Truths

There’s no denying that there will always be a measure of dishonesty when it comes to marketing your product or business. After all, you do need to set yourself and your business apart from the rest of the competition. The problem comes in when these white lies or embellishments become outright lies. Take job applications as an example. You might say that you can speak conversational French, when in reality you can only say a few basic phrases. Unless you’re applying for a job that involves speaking French, you might never be called out on your white lie. If, however, you tell your potential employer that you have years of restaurant management experience while you only ever worked as a server, then you’ve got a big problem.

You could definitely apply that example to the used car industry. A used car dealer could buy a car that was in dire need of serious repairs and then fix it with subpar parts to sell it again for a profit as an “excellent” car. Some dealers (although I hesitate to call them anything other than criminals) even sell totalled or stolen cars to their unsuspecting customers for a massive profit. That being said, not all car salespeople are liars and cheats – no more than all attorneys or insurance brokers or mechanics. Dishonesty, like death and taxes, is an unavoidable part of life.

Lying on the Lot

You might think that you’d have to speak to a salesperson face to face before encountering any dishonest practices, but in today’s digital age, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Vehicle sellers have been evolving with the times and have joined the online revolution to market their products on classifieds websites and vehicle listing billboards. If these sellers are honest, transparent and sincere, then online listings are an amazing way for them to gain loyal customers. The customers themselves also have the chance to view the cars, plan their finances and get to know the seller first, which removes the dreaded uncertainty of stepping onto a lot without any prior knowledge.

If they’re dishonest or out to exploit their customers, then digital advertising could make it much easier for them to do so. Photos can be manipulated; details can be forged and auctions can still be rigged. It might actually be easier if it’s done online.

Finding Honest Car Salespeople

Keeping the above in mind, it could be easy to feel discouraged or frustrated. How are you meant to hold your own against someone who’s been in the industry for years and knows how to sell ice to a snowman? The quick answer is that you don’t. Instead of trying to challenge dishonest salespeople, avoid them entirely by learning how to recognise dishonest practices. If you do realise that they’re treating their customers unfairly, make sure to tell your loved ones to avoid them as well. (Keep in mind that many companies are able to sue for defamation, even if you were mostly in the right. This is why we suggest you leave an honest review of their services and end all contact as soon as possible.)

How to Recognise Dishonest Salespeople?

An honest salesperson’s goals are friendly service, consistent product or service quality, and honest communication. That’s easy enough. But what about dishonest salespeople? I’d like to believe that we could all ascribe to the idea that any stranger is a friend until proven an enemy, but unfortunately that’s not always feasible. When approaching a service provider like a car salesperson, it would be best to do your own research in advance. Ask yourself the following questions:

• 1. Does this company or service provider have authentic, positive reviews? Have they addressed the issues mentioned in negative reviews?
• 2. Do they have any social media feeds or websites where you can view their products or services? (This question could be ignored for smaller businesses that tend to work on word of mouth. Although it would be best to speak to some of their previous clients if you can.)
• 3. Are they willing to meet up and/or discuss their products or services?
• 4. Are they willing to provide you with the names or contact details of previous clients (with that client’s permission, of course)?
• 5. Are they open and communicative over text and in person?

These questions might not be fool-proof, but they do give you a good foundation of what to look out for. If you have any more questions about how to find reputable dealers, contact us today. We would love to help you find you dream car, even if we aren’t the sellers!

BRAND NEW CLASSIC CARS

Would you drive a brand-new “classic” car?

Why do people love classic cars?

There’s a certain type of person that drives a classic car. Their definition of a night out is when they accidentally fall asleep in the garage (again). They work on their car not only because they need to, but because they want to. There’s just something about being able to feel the road moving under you and listening to the roar of a powerful engine that makes driving a classic car a uniquely nostalgic experience. Even if you weren’t doing the Twist to a Beach Boys song back in the day, you can’t help but feel transported to the swinging 60s when you’re behind the wheel of the likes of a ‘65 Chevy Impala. Whatever your reason is for driving and loving your classic car, we’re sure it’s a great one or you wouldn’t be reading this.


If they’re so amazing, why isn’t everyone driving a classic car?

Quality classics are hard to find and they’re even harder to maintain even if you have the needed expertise. With each classic car’s endearing creaks and groans comes some more worryingly expensive sounds. Sky-high repair and fuel costs are just some of the reasons why many people opt for more practical, modern cars. Parallel parking a 1969 Boss 429 Mustang in a busy city street doesn’t exactly sound like a drive in the park, but it’s also true that most people who own classic cars don’t usually use them for everyday driving. So, if someone could offer you the chance to drive a car with all the old-world charm with none of its problems, would you consider investing in a “classic”?


Can classic cars be manufactured today?

You could take the more conventional route of purchasing a classic car that’s seen better days and having it restored by professionals or if you’re skilled enough you could even do it yourself. Dino’s Classic Restorations offers exactly what it says on the box – they restore your classic to its original glamour by replacing, repairing and refurbishing as they see fit. Workshops like Dino’s focus on originality, professionalism, and most importantly, quality. It’s no surprise that they have more than 2000 people following their journey. So, if these classic cars were so popular and are still in the market today, why not just build a car that’s the same shape but has brand-new, modern technology under the surface?
Some auto shops actually do something like this by starting from scratch (or the bare minimum, at least) to recreate the car in its entirety. Places like Revology in the US, that specialise in vintage and classic cars, strip a classic (provided by the client) to pieces and use modern materials and equipment to create a car that looks like it rolled out of the pages of a vintage magazine. What’s even better is that it drives like a car manufactured in 2018. According to Cheat Sheet, Revology’s Mustang comes with so many Ford parts that it can actually be serviced under warrantee at a Ford dealership, which makes it, says Cheat Sheet, “the first 1966 Mustang with a factory warranty since, well, 1966.”
Another prime example is the Lightweight E-Type Jaguar that was announced to hit the road again in 2014. Jaguar chose to manufacture another six cars that are identical to their original twelve 1963 siblings. This was met with unbelievable excitement and all six cars were sold as soon as they were released. And although this was a rare and unique case, it leads us to imagine what the reaction would be if other manufacturers followed Jaguar’s example and re-released their signature classics.


Is a reproduction of a classic car still a classic?

When it comes right down to it, the answer would be, “It depends.” Stripping down a car to its frame and rebuilding the damaged or worn parts is common practice. It also depends on where you buy it. While some classics, like the 1963 Jaguar E-Type, are the real deal, many independent shops and restorers only manufacture lookalikes and replicas. These would usually need to be registered as project or kit cars.


What’s the verdict?

Another huge part of driving a classic car is the authenticity. If you ask a petrolhead, they’ll most probably tell you that driving a car that looks exactly like a 1966 Shelby 427 Cobra but has, for example, Bluetooth, USB and built-in GPS systems, is just not the same as driving an original. For many, the joy and excitement of fixing up and maintaining their classics is what makes it worth the time, money and effort. Regardless of your stance on the matter, we can all agree that it’ll be interesting to see how far the replication and restoration of classic cars will go.

TRAVELLING WITH A SERVICE DOG: HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Many of us are preparing for our long-awaited and much-needed December break. We’re packing cars, planning routes, and making arrangements for our pets. But what about those of us who are taking our dogs with us?
Many people who need service dogs need them by their side no matter what. In this article we focus specifically on service dogs*, but remember that assistance animals come in all shapes and sizes. Make sure you know how to travel in a way that suits both you and your service animal.
Service dogs, just like people, need to be safe in a vehicle at all times. We’ve all seen drivers travelling with their dogs on their lap hanging out of the window, or running across and over the car seats. As cute as it is to see a happy pup with its ears flapping in the wind, travelling without taking safety into consideration is a danger to everyone, not just your dog.
A dog sitting in the passenger seat can be severely and often fatally injured if the airbag deploys in an accident. Your dog also becomes a danger to you and your passengers during a collision – being hit by an upwards of 10kg mass at high speeds could definitely injure someone. There are countless horror stories of car accidents, so we don’t need to remind you of that. Make sure to keep your family (including the furrier members of it) safe while you travel.
The safest way to transport your dog is by using a secured, high quality travel-crate. If you do not have one, you can also use a harness. A simple dog-harness (not a collar) is perfect for travelling short distances. Simply attach a leash, fold it double, and thread the seatbelt through the gap. This will allow your dog to sit and stand, but not move around in the car.

• Have supplies at hand
A doggy first aid kit can literally be a lifesaver in an emergency. Your supplies can include anti-nausea tablets, a light tranquilizer for anxious dogs, bandages, and much more. Whatever you think you might need at home during an emergency, make sure to have it at hand while you travel.

• Have a clean blanket to keep your dog warm, or to protect your upholstery from sharp nails and hair.

• A food bowl can be used for more than just kibble. Keep it for water when you make a pit-stop to keep your dog hydrated.

• Make sure your dog is comfortable and safe
Make sure there’s nothing that could fall on your dog (even if your dog is in a crate) if you were to brake or turn sharply.

• Keep your dog’s service vest (if you have one) nearby for pit stops. Do not leave it on your dog during long car rides because it could be too warm or uncomfortable.

• Keep the windows partially open or have the AC running to make sure your dog is comfortable despite the heat. Likewise, if you’re travelling during the rainy season, make sure your windows don’t leak and that your dog has somewhere dry to lay down.

• Keep the music at a reasonable volume. Some dogs are anxious passengers despite being extremely well-trained, and adding loud sounds to the mix is a recipe for an anxious animal.

• Do not have your dog travel on the bed of a bakkie or van. Even if there is a canopy for shelter, your dog could be fatally injured in an accident.

• Make frequent stops. Not only will this save you on clean-up duty for when nature calls, but it will also give you and your dog a much-needed break.

The last tip of this article, is to always be patient with your dog. Despite the fact that service dogs are calm and obedient, they don’t enjoy countless hours on the road either. Understand that your dog has specific needs and try to be as accommodating as you can. The Mobility Team would like to wish you and your loved ones a happy festive season and safe travels. Please share this article for those who might be travelling with dogs this holiday and to create awareness of service dog safety.
*Most of this article can also be applied to those travelling with dogs in general, not just service dogs.

Impeccable Fashion, Meet Automotive Excellence South Africa

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

What do you think of when you hear the word luxury? You might see yourself stepping out of a rumbling sportscar in your tailor-made three-piece suit. Maybe you’re the starlet in red lipstick cruising past in your cabriolet. Regardless of what you think luxury is, chances are that it involves a mixture of beauty, power, and quality.

It’s no secret that luxury brands like Maserati and Lamborghini exclusively manufacture works of art. Masterpieces like the all new Levante GTS is a perfect example of the marriage between precision and sheer beauty and how important a keen eye for style is when designing high-end vehicles. What you might not know is that fashion designers and automotive manufacturers have worked together since the dawn of the automotive age and have no intentions of ending that connection any time soon.

Read more about fashion in the automotive industry Car News SA .

High-end manufacturers understand that there is more to designing a perfect car than simply having a comfortable drive. Fashion designers understand that there is more to style than aesthetic value. By combining their efforts, car manufacturers and fashion experts can create something that is not only a pleasure to look at, but also a pleasure to drive.

Here are four of the most iconic cars manufactured and influenced by fashion designers.

Cadillac Seville Gucci Edition

32327245158_1c068b7274_k.jpg

This 1979 car was pure Cadillac on the inside, but was shipped in stock form and modified by Gucci’s top designers. Only 300 of these cars were ever manufactured and sported the following adjustments:

  • A Gucci nameplate on the steering wheel centre hub, the passenger side of the dashboard and on the pillars
  • The firm’s exclusive fabric material on the headrests, armrests, headliner, and floor mats
  • The trademark interlocking double “G” on a vinyl top covering only the car’s C-pillar.
  • A gold Gucci hood ornament
  • Gold emblems on the wheels, front fenders and C-Pillar
  • Green and red stripes across the trunk lid

Aldo Gucci, the son of the founder of the Italian company said that “The Gucci styling we have created for this car is designed to give a fortunate few owners a rare possession of distinction, beauty and ultimate luxury”.

 

Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640 Versace

lambo

 

 

This limited-edition Lamborghini Versace Murcielago LP 640, unveiled in 2006 at the Paris Motor Show, was available in black or white and only 20 cars were ever manufactured, of which 8 were for sale.

Available as coupés and roadsters, these cars’ custom interiors were finished in bi-colour Nero over Bianco leather seats stitched with the Versace Greco motif in two-toned Versace leather. The centre console also sported a Gianni Versace logo plaque. As if driving it as is wasn’t enough, each car came with matching Versace luggage, driving shoes, gloves, and a matching watch.

 

Bugatti Veyron par Hermès

3777949490_4832745593_b.jpg

The Bugatti Veyron Hermès  is what happens when you allow two international design giants to combine their expertise. This car is as exclusive and luxurious as its creators and this is proven by the fact that only 4 cars were ever made.

The Veyron par Hermès sports the iconic bi-colour bodyshell – a parallel to the interior bi-colour upholstery. The signature Hermès seams style is also reflected in the vents on the edge of the rims. The Hermès brand symbol is also shown on the aluminium grilles and intercoolers. The interior was designed and produced from scratch in the Hermès workshops in Paris.  Hermès proved itself true to its reputation by using only the highest quality fabrics and materials to complete this automotive masterpiece.

Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna  

maserati zegna.jpg

In our totally biased opinion, the Maserati Quattroporte Zegna might be the only car on this list to compare to the Bugatti Veyron Hermès in terms of attention to detail and overall beauty. The Italian automotive manufacturer once again partnered with the Ermenegildo Zegna fashion house to create a car that radiates luxury and class. The limited-edition car also comes with a 19-piece owners’ collections that includes a calfskin leather travel bag and an assortment of limited-edition clothing pieces.

The interior is made up entirely of ZegnaSilk fabric, ultra-fine leather, and walnut trim. The Maserati Trident is also embossed on the different features of the interior. Even the exterior colour is called Platinum Silk, a colour made up of aluminium pigments exclusive to this specific edition. It’s clear form this stunning car’s success and reception that Maserati and Ermenegildo Zegna will not be parting ways in the near future.

Student Transport 101: 5 Universities Doing It Right

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The academic year has officially kicked off and the excitement in the air is contagious. Students are moving into their new (or old) homes for the year and thinking, dreaming, and worrying about what 2019 might bring. Some students might be a bit wary about travelling on their own, but lucky for them, most universities offer transport to and from their respective campuses. For more information about these universities’ transport services, read on.

Please keep in mind that the transport options listed in this article do not include metered taxis, Ubers, or students’ own cars.

University of Witwatersrand

Intercampus Bus Service

Students who are in need of transport can take the Inter Campus Bus to and from the Education Campus, the Health Science Campus, and Main Campus. There is also a bus to and from Rosebank on weekends for students in residences. These buses are free of charge to all students and staff members who can show a valid student card or identification.

Rea Vaya

The Rea Vaya buses travel to the inner city as well as Florida North, Yeoville, Cresta and Parktown. Although these buses are not exclusively open to students, university students who travel with these buses get a 10% discount between 8:30 am and 3:00 pm. Students are also exempt from loading fees at these bus stations. Cash can be loaded onto smartcards at any Rea Vaya Station or ABSA cash-accepting ATM.

 

University of Pretoria

Bus Services

The University of Pretoria offers transport to and from its Hatfield, Mamelodi, Groenkloof, and Prinshof campuses free of charge. The university’s website does not list a bus schedule to Onderstepoort. The buses run on a set schedule that is occasionally updated on the university website. Tuks also offers specialised bus services during exam times with buses travelling from Sunnyside and Arcadia.

Rent A Bike

Many students also make use of bicycles. These bikes are available to rent from the University of Pretoria. There are sufficient bike racks on campus and many students use their bicycles to get from one class to another.

 

University of Cape Town

Jammie Shuttle

The University of Cape Town has its famous Jammie Shuttle that transports students and staff between campuses free of charge. The shuttle also runs on weekends and a Sunday timetable is followed on specified public holidays. There is also a night service available.

Golden Arrow Buses

Cape Town’s Golden Arrow Bus Service has been running for over 150 years and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Students can easily access these buses from different points on campus. According to the UCT website, these buses are “accessible from Main Road, Rondebosch, and the Jammie Shuttle stops in Claremont and Mowbray.”

MyCiti Buses

The MyCiti initiative focuses on being as eco-friendly as possible while still offering efficient services to the public. These buses work with the Jammie Shuttle and are easily accessible from campus.

University of Stellenbosch

Because the main campus is situated in the middle of the town, most students make use of bicycles, skateboards, longboards, and lift-clubs. There are also some parking spaces available, although it has been noted that there aren’t many and some students might park a bit further.

Campus Shuttle Service

There is a shuttle that travels in and around Stellenbosch departments and points of interest.

Matie Bikes

These bicycles are available for rent by students and are fairly popular. They’re not only affordable but also eco-friendly. The bikes sport the university’s maroon colour and are easily recognisable. The bicycle rates are available on the university’s website.

Driving with a Disability: Overcoming the Impossible

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Learning how to drive is stressful for almost everyone. Imagine that you’re on a busy road and you’ve stalled your car four times already. The drivers behind you are getting impatient, despite the fact that they were once where you are now. Now imagine the same situation, but as someone who has a disability.

People who have disabilities face challenges that many couldn’t even imagine. Things that seem simple to able-bodied people can become almost impossible on a good day. One of these things that are sometimes taken for granted, is driving.

Being able to drive yourself is a luxury that countless teens dream of. They count down the days until they can take their driving test and finally have the freedom to decide where they want to go (with their parents’ permission, of course). For others, this opportunity only presents itself much later in life due to their circumstances. Regardless of when you learn how to drive, being able to get yourself from point A to B without too much assistance is a milestone to be proud of.

Fortunately, this is now a possibility for almost anyone. Thanks to vehicle modifications, specialized licences, and intensive driving lessons, people with certain disabilities can drive just as well as (or, in some cases, better than) everyone else.

People with Physical Disabilities 

Physical disabilities can include different degrees of affected mobility, stamina or dexterity. Some people might need wheelchairs, crutches or other mobility aids. In this case, a person’s driving ability depends on their degree of mobility. People with physical disabilities can make use of organisations like QASAs Driving Ambitions (that specializes in driving lessons) to help them decide on what best suits their needs. Driving Ambitions “[accommodates] many different types of disabilities, including quadriplegics, paraplegics, strokes, amputees, cerebral palsy”. Each case is dealt with individually and a representative assesses a client’s abilities in advance.

Some of the many resources available while taking driving lessons at Driving Ambitions are:

  • Space Drive systems
  • Electronic brake and acceleration systems
  • Wheelchair accessible vehicles
  • Push Button Controls

People Who Suffer from Hearing Loss

It’s a common misconception that people who are hard of hearing can’t drive. Some studies have found that they actually drive better than hearing drivers because of their heightened sense of vision. Driving is a primarily visual activity and being able to process visual cues is imperative.

Some of the vehicle modifications that can be used for people with hearing loss are:

  • Devices that indicate when emergency vehicles are nearby. These devices can often detect when other drivers use their horns.
  • Panoramic mirrors that enhance visibility.
  • Panels of different indicators that detect nearby sounds and show on screen notifications.

 

People with Intellectual Disabilities

Intellectual disabilities include Foetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), Down’s Syndrome and Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) and others. People who have intellectual disabilities are all very different and there is no hard and fast rule to determine whether they are fit to drive or not.

That being said, if they’re able to take and pass their theory and practical tests, they will be allowed to drive just like anyone else.

 

How do I know if I’m fit to drive?

You are fit to drive if you do not suffer from one of these diseases or disabilities (taken from Chapter 4 of the Road traffic Act):

  1. Uncontrolled epilepsy
  2. Sudden attacks of disabling giddiness or fainting due to hypertension or any other cause
  3. Any form of mental illness to such an extent that it is necessary that he or she be detained, supervised, controlled and treated as a patient in terms of the Mental Health Act, 1973 (Act No. 18 of 1973)
  4. Any condition causing muscular in-coordination
  5. Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus
  6. Defective vision ascertained in accordance with a prescribed standard
  7. (vii) any other disease or physical defect which is likely to render him or her incapable of effectively driving and controlling a motor vehicle of the class to which such licence relates without endangering the safety of the public: Provided that deafness shall not of itself be deemed to be such a defect
