Anybody who has longed for the sexy curves of the new Dodge Demon or Widebody Hellcat will be happy to hear that AVS—a leading automotive accessory brand under the respected Lund umbrella—has just introduced a kit that can transform any 2015-up Challenger into a near Widebody/Demon look-alike. The resemblance to a Dodge Demon or Widebody Hellcat is uncanny, with AVS designer Billy Bibb doing a fantastic job amping up the design even further. Demons and Widebody Hellcats after all have unique quarter panels and fenders with attachment points stamped into them. Those can’t be used on a regular Challenger body, so AVS must work with the stock sheetmetal. If that sounds like an opportunity to make it even sexier, you’d be right!
Diesel particulate filters trap microscopic emissions produced by diesel engines that would otherwise be expelled into the environment. They require regular ‘regeneration’, however, which involves burning the captured particles off. This process can only occur at high temperatures, typically reached when a vehicle is driven at relatively high speed. Diesel drivers who predominantly drive in urban areas can therefore be faced with blocked DPFs, as their vehicles don’t regularly reach the conditions necessary for regeneration to occur.
[In response to the question posed regarding] Pakistan considering any options/proposals to manage/control its border with Afghanistan in such a way that it does not negatively impact bilateral trade, Pakistan hasn’t introduce any restrictions for legal trade between Pakistan and Afghanistan, rather we are reinforcing and upgrading the existing trade terminals with the aim to increase their capacity, make them more efficient, also, we are exploring new trade terminals/crossing points to facilitate trade/transit and encourage legal movement of people and goods. We have recently opened a new border crossing for trade and transit of vehicles, at Kharlachi, Kurram agency. In addition we are investing in human resource as well as technical surveillance means to increase our reach to frequented and unfrequented routes used by smugglers and other undesired elements to curb illegal trade and smuggling. With these efforts we are hopeful that the trade between the two countries would increase and the traders of the two countries would be facilitated.
As you can imagine, it’s way faster to search by an index than having to go through each page. Therefore, adding indexes to your database is in general speeding up your select queries. However, the index also has to be created and stored. So the update and insert queries will be slower and it will cost you a bit more disk space. In general, you won’t notice the difference with updating and inserting if you have indexed your table correctly and therefore it’s advisable to add indexes at the right locations.
On the chassis front, the baby GS gains a larger, 19-inch diameter wheel, 41 mm upside-down fork, a single 300 mm-disc front brake with four-piston caliper in front, while the rear gets a 17-inch wheel, rear monoshock with preload adjustment, and a 240 mm rear disc brake with single-piston caliper. Suspension travel is 180 mm, while dual-channel ABS is standard, and is user-switchable.
The car is 2.4 inches longer, 0.6 inches wider and about an inch lower than its predecessor. It also has quite different styling at its front and rear ends compared to the standard Prius. In Japan and Europe, some versions have solar panels on the roof. These, Toyota claims, can increase the car’s range by up to 10%. The panels, which are laid on reinforced glass sheeting, prevent the Prius Prime from passing the USA’s rollover laws, so the solar roof isn’t available in that market. The car’s chief engineer told the media at the car’s home market preview in June 2016 that Toyota does not have the technology to laminate the photovoltaic cells in a resin which won’t shatter if the car rolls. However, TMC is working on a solution. Panasonic is the supplier of the solar roof.

With a motor lifted out of the German firm’s RR superbike and retuned for more mid-range grunt, the 163bhp 999cc masterpiece gurgles on the overrun, pops and bangs through its gearbox blippers and goes like merry hell. It’s a four-cylinder cacophony of noise, aggression and power when you poke it with a stick, but relaxed and tractable when you’re just cruising. The 999cc inline four-cylinder motor is now Euro4-friendly and comes with an extra 5bhp. New handlebars are designed to reduce vibes (one of the few criticisms of the old bike) and a beefed-up subframe will handle an extra 10kg of pillion and luggage.
I had one in 45 ACP with a 50 round drum magazine. I bought it back in 1993 when klinton was getting his “crime bill” (anti gun) ready and I wanted it before he’d say “cant have it”. With that said, it was a waste of money. You’d get the oohs and aahs at a pistol range but other then that here are the facts on it: 1) it weighed a lot 2) it took 3 hands to swap in or out the drum magazine, much faster mag changes using the 30 round stick mag 3) it was of course semi auto only 4) it had a lawyer trigger pull that must have been about 20 pounds. After you shot the 50 round drum mag you had tendonitis 5) the stock was extremely long. designed for someone who was 6 foot 6 and had a 40 inch sleeve length! When I’d go to shoulder it (5’10” 33 inch sleeve) it would bump into my arm pit. You would have to make a real conscious effort to fully extend your arms forward to shoulder it. 6) accuracy was not that great due in part to the trigger pull 7) you needed tools to take it apart to clean it. it was almost like trying to overhaul a carburetor. matter of fact, I could put together a 4 barrel carb quicker then this thing. 8) it looked “KEWL” especially in a violin case. I disliked it so much, I SOLD it.
