Plastic Rims


In the near future, alloy rims could be replaced by plastic rims. These rims are realized by a combination between plastic and glass (glass-reinforced plastic GRP) and have as an advantage their light weight. It is normal that a plastic rim to weight less than an alloy one. The same will be with the price; it will be less than the price for an alloy rim. Although the project isn’t new, this kind of rims weren’t tested before. But this thing changed once with the creation of a new testing lab at the European Examination Center Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
This is the way to test the durability and resistance of plastic rims. Until now, few prototypes were successfully tested, resisting at over 250,000 km of simulations.

A new wonder is born, the amazing Audi TT Roadster Clubsport. We don’t know for sure, but everybody is speaking about this great model.

Then the 3.2 liter engine was boost up to 360 BHP and a special bulid gear box was made for it.The interior of the car is rather spartan: no electric windows, no climatronik, no music, no other gadged can be found, only the engine sound is present and this is all you need in this racing car.
