These are TIM's parts of the cowlings.
Inside of wheel house are round adapting to the tire surface.
This is the good point to reduce drags of tire aerodynamics.
Their techniques are very considerable to the nicety.
is TIM's engine. This engine is using Atkinson cycle.
technology is very unique but theoretical .... And they
are so marvelous technicians because they started fuel economy
race just in 1997.
But their real performance is top of the
world. They made a very sophisticated high performance car
without failure. It is a miracle .
We admire their engineering
これはなんでしょう？ team TIM のタイヤ抵抗測定装置です。
This car was 85 year model of Micro
Joule. In 2000,
Micro joule used this very old model because
new model was in Hanover Exhibition.
They installed new engine
and new radial tires(only 2 rear tire) on it. The record was
very good of 2153km/L in spit of bad airodynamics of it.
also indicated their technology was awfully high. And the gentle
man standing right side was professor Philippe Maindru of LYCEE
LA JOLIVERIE. He has lead the technician students to the top
of fuel Economy race. We definitely think that he is the greatest
authority of Shell Ecomarathon in the world.
