Alignment Fix (down to Right or Left)


 Share

Recommended Posts

Seen a few things on alignments and steering wheel staying left or right after multiple attempts to correct. 

 

I found the steering rack isn't central through the tie rods joints. 

 

I am a wheel aligner so happy to help out if I can.

      Here is the full list of over 400 cars currently confirmed for Forza Horizon 5
      by Usama Jawad

      A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft showcased gameplay footage for its upcoming AAA title, Forza Horizon 5. Although the video content we saw emphasized the music, gameplay elements, and environments, another key focus of Forza games is the huge variety of officially licensed cars it offers.

      Now, Playground Games has revealed the list of currently confirmed cars that you will be available to race around in Forza Horizon 5. It is important to note that while 426 cars have been revealed right now, the company has stated that this list will be regularly updated up until the game's launch on November 9.

      Forza Horizon 5 offers a mouth-watering collection of cars from dozens of manufacturers - including fictional ones like AMG Transport Dynamics which built Halo's Warthog - across the globe. That said, notable companies currently missing from the list right now are BMW and Tesla. It's unclear whether Playground was unable to reach licensing deals with the aforementioned manufacturers or if they will be revealed at a later date.

      We already saw Mercedes-AMG ONE, 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands, Porsche 911 Desert Flyer, and 2020 Corvette Stingray in the gameplay trailer, but without further ado, here's the complete list of the 426 cars currently confirmed by Playground Games:

      Xiaomi to begin making electric vehicles, says report
      by Paul Hill



      Reuters has reported that Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone maker, will begin building electric vehicles at Great Wall Motors' factory. In response to the report, Xiaomi said it wasn’t going to provide comments and Great Wall said, in an exchange filing on Friday, that it hadn’t discussed this with Xiaomi.

      The information that Xiaomi will be using Great Wall’s factory came from three people who have direct knowledge of the matter who spoke to Reuters. Two of the sources said that the vehicles produced at the factory will carry Xiaomi’s branding and that they will be aimed at a mass market. To help speed things along, Great Wall Motors will provide Xiaomi with engineering consultancy. The third source said they believe that the partnership could be announced next week.

      With technology companies getting closer and closer to the vehicle industry bringing entertainment systems and helping to boost automation it’s not very surprising to hear that Xiaomi is also looking to get into cars. This won’t be the company’s first foray into vehicles either as it already sells several electric scooters.

      Following Reuter’s report, Xiaomi’s shares increased by 6.3% and Great Wall’s Hong Kong stock rose by 10.4% and its Shanghai shares grew by the maximum 10% daily limit. This indicates that investors believe the rumours are true but we will just have to wait a little longer to see whether they’re confirmed.

      Canalys: 3.5 million L2 autonomous vehicles sold in Q420
      by Paul Hill

      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that 3.5 million passenger cars were sold worldwide that came Level 2 autonomous driving features during the fourth quarter of 2020. According to the Society of Automotive Engineers, Level 2 autonomous vehicles require drivers to be fully engaged but can take control of more than one driving function.

      In its research, Canalys looked at the sales of L2 vehicles in different regions of the world. In the United States, 1.2 million units were sold, in China sales reached 832,000 units, in Europe figures hit 628,000, Japan saw 199,000 sales, and the rest of the world recorded 600,000 units. In terms of penetration rate, the U.S. came top at 30%, Japan is at 20%, Europe is at 19%, China is at 12% and the rest of the world is at 12% too. Over the whole of 2020, 11.2 million cars with L2 features were sold, representing a growth of 78% compared to 2019.

      Discussing the research, Canalys Chief Analyst Chris Jones said:

      The analyst warned that motorists need to be educated about the new features in L2 cars. It said that without proper education the features risk being left unused or abused by people who don’t realise that they need to continue paying attention to the road even though the car is doing the driving. It also said that different brand names for the automation systems and different combinations of features also lead to further confusion.

      Google announces open beta of Android for Cars App Library
      by Usama Jawad

      Over the past few years, Google has been working hard to promote Android Auto which allows you to link your phone to your car's display thereby mirroring your notifications, music, and navigation to it. Back in August, the company announced that it would be expanding its ecosystem to allow a wider range of apps.

      On that front, Google has been working with its early access partner to improve the Android for Cars App Library, which is now rolling out to all developers in an open beta.

      The library allows developers to design, build, and test their navigation, charging, and parking applications on Android Auto. Google emphasizes that since the applications will be used by someone while driving, it is essential that developers familiarize themselves with the design and app quality guidelines.

      While testing the app, developers can take advantage of the Desktop Head Unit (DHU), which is an emulator mirroring the capabilities that will be available to you on a car's infotainment display. The DHU now also supports different display sizes as well as infotainment panels which support touchpad input.

      Google says that it will enable Play Store publication of beta apps in the coming months, and those interested in building these applications can head over to the dedicated developer guide here.
