Do you post-80s and 90s still remember the boy who delivered tofu on the Qiu Mingshan Highway? The Fujiwara Takumi, who delivered tofu for his father, drove his father’s old AE86 car on the Akuna Mountain to practice his skills. The so-called “Autumn Mountain Bike God” has ignited the blood of many young people. Some people say that the secret for him to become a car god is that his father put a glass of water on the car. He can prevent a drop from spilling. What do you think of this? If it is you, on the premise of ensuring driving safety, can you drive without spilling a drop of water? You can challenge and see.
In “Initial D”, in addition to dripping water, there is another driving stalk, that is Xia Shu, who faints every time he rides in the car, and he feels comfortable to fall asleep in the Takumi car. No motion sickness is the same as dripping and not sprinkling. It means driving the car extremely smoothly, especially when driving fast while still driving steadily. There are indeed some skills in daily driving that will allow you to take care of both speed and stability. Everyone can use it, such as the defensive driving that is often said on the Internet. The name is defensive, but it can be defensive as offensive. Defensive driving focuses on pre-measurement. When driving, don’t just stare at the vehicle ahead. This will be very passive. You can only follow the sudden brake of the vehicle ahead. We should keep our sights far away and see that there is a traffic jam in the far ahead, we know that we should slow down in advance, so that the brakes will become much smoother. Also, imagine other people on the road as lunatics who will break out at any time. You have to figure out what they will do next in advance. For example, there is a slow car in the next lane, and there is a car behind which is impatient and close to it. It can be predicted that the probability of this car changing lanes is very high. We can change lanes in advance to avoid them, or wait for the other party to pass first, so that we won’t get rid of the gun with the other party and cause sudden brakes and sudden lane changes. The more advanced is fast and steady turning, don’t laugh, the skills on the track can be used on the road. On running mountain roads, or on the upper and lower bridges circling in the city, take the route of the outside, inside and outside slightly without leaving the lane and the surroundings are safe. With this “line routing” method, the roll when turning becomes smaller. The speed control also imitates track driving, pressing the speed before the corner, and then accelerating at the center of the corner. Human driving is one aspect, and it also has a lot to do with the car. It is difficult for some cars to be drip-proof. For example, some turbo-cars were weak before intervention, and the power suddenly increased after the intervention of the turbine. This kind of fault dynamics can easily drive the car by surprise. In addition, the suspension of the car is too soft, and the side is so big that you want to reverse it when you turn quickly, and there is no way to talk about it. It is very interesting that some manufacturers really put “drip and not spilled” into the research and development goal. For example, Mazda’s GVC PLUS system, this technology is used in the 2021 new Mazda 6 Atez. The demonstration video released by the manufacturer either looks at how smooth the surface of the water in the cup is, or the co-pilot is rarely pulled by the ground force when turning. To understand this GVC PLUS technology, you must first understand its predecessor, GVC. To put it plainly, GVC relies on adjusting the engine torque to make the cornering attitude more stable. Before turning, GVC will reduce the engine torque, move the center of gravity to the front of the car, and increase the front wheel adhesion. The torque is restored in the corner, the center of gravity is moved back to the rear wheels, and the rear wheels have better adhesion. This can prepare for the acceleration when exiting the corner, because the center of gravity will move to the rear wheel when accelerating, which simulates the above turning motion of slow forward and fast exit to a certain extent. GVC PLUS also adds brake control on the basis of GVC torque control. After exiting the curve and returning to the positive steering wheel, the outer front wheel can be slightly braked, so that the car can better bite on the curved road surface. The previous GVC is equivalent to an experienced driver who will help you fine-tune the car so that you can corner quickly and steadily with the most suitable parameters. Go to GVC PLUS, this one is even better than the old driver, after all, the old driver cannot brake a single wheel. The following is a video of me going to a 4S shop and driving a brand new Mazda 6 Atez to challenge a turn without sprinkling water. Atez challenged turning and dripping without sprinkling Feng Xifan-porridge video. 1658 The whole process of playing was easier than expected. As long as you slowly turn into the corner, there will be no waves on the water. This is true even when turning at 80km/h. The turning process is just as the manufacturer said, there is no need for correction in the middle, which makes it easier for me to avoid dripping. Other vehicles need to be corrected when turning. The correction will bring more variables. Inaccurate control will cause the body to sway and spill water in the cup. I also drove the brand new Mazda 6 Atez back to the 4S shop via the expressway this time. The other driving settings of this car also help prevent dripping. For example, the power response is fast, and the accelerator is powerful with stepping on, so that the driver can freely retract and release the power. In addition, Atez’s steering ratio is very natural. Unlike some sports cars, the steering ratio is adjusted too aggressively. A slight shake of the hands will give the body an exaggerated movement. I remember that Mazda has a car-making concept, which is to make controlling the car become like controlling one’s own hands and feet. Controlling the hands and feet is natural, without thinking. There is no need to think, on the one hand, the power and steering are adjusted very naturally, on the other hand, GVC PLUS secretly helps behind. When controlling a car is as simple as controlling hands and feet, the difficulty of dripping water is much lower than others.
