Four-wheel-drive trucks compete in many types of motorsports where no car would dare show its face. To realize the ultimate potential of a competitive truck, many off-road activities are fitted to four-wheel-drive trucks to race on mud, rock and sand. These trucks are shown in action: there's nothing like four heavy-lugged tires clawing for traction and throwing up clouds of dirt and rocks, "Tough Trucks" navigating jumps, water and obstacle courses, Monster Trucks in flight, trucks drag racing through sand, mud and uphill, 4x4s pulling the heaviest loads possible, the ultra-slow rock-climbing trucks racing to get over the toughest of obstacles requiring a delicate touch on the throttle and a skilled use of the suspension system, and Trail Riding which combines a number of rock-climbing obstacles over the length of an off-road trail.

As the world speeds up, as technology takes over, it is worth remembering how we used to live. This three-book series is a nostalgic hymn to an era when life was slower: a meandering ramble through the British countryside by bicycle, automobile and train. Take an amble across the countryside with this book, which celebrates a time when our railway network was more than a permanently delayed omnishambles of overcrowded and overpriced trains. Country stations and lonely halts, milk churns and coal yards, enamelled signs and platform clocks - these are the fragments of a more leisured age, from a time when the local station was a well-loved institution at the heart of so many communities. Here are gas-lit rural stations, oil lamps on level crossing gates, enamelled signs, waiting room fires, timetables and luggage labels. Less a clattering, steamy ride into the past than a touchstone for joyous memories of such a vital and well-loved institution, The Slow Train harks back to a more measured, considered era.

The McLaren MP4/4 is the iconic Honda V6 turbo-powered F1 car built by McLaren for the 1988 grand prix season, driven by Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost. Remarkably, the car won all but one race during the year, and took McLaren's new recruit Senna to his first World Championship after a season-long battle with team-mate Prost. McLaren achieved an astonishing ten 1-2 finishes with the car, and suffered only two car-related retirements during the season. The MP4/4 is still statistically the most dominant F1 car ever built, taking pole position and victory in all but one of the 1988 season's 16 races, Senna taking 13 pole positions, and eight wins, with two poles and seven wins for Prost. Officially licensed from McLaren, and produced with their full cooperation and unique access to a race-winning MP4/4 chassis, this manual provided a unique insight into the design, engineering and operation of one of F1's most iconic cars, featuring input from the designers, engineers and drivers involved.

Thomas Aveling, a farmer and self-taught engineer, became the 'father of the traction engine'. This resulted from efforts to improve agricultural machinery. After success with steam ploughing, his conversion of the portable steam engine, making it self-propelling, produced the first commercially successful traction engine. Establishing a factory in Strood, Kent in 1861, Aveling's need for finance lead to a partnership with Richard Porter in 1862. This was an ideal relationship that freed Aveling to concentrate on the engineering aspects of the firm. Aveling's innovations included numerous patents covering improvements to engine layout, to steering and to geared drive. The product that brought the firm international recognition was the steam road roller marketed in 1867. As the world's most prolific manufacturer, Aveling & Porter became synonymous with the road roller. Profitable as a firm until the failure of the Agricultural and General Engineers combine, the firm was to be resurrected as Aveling Barford at Grantham in 1934.

R391 R318 Discovery Miles 3 180 Save R73 (19%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The unique, but sadly short-lived, Brighton & Rottingdean Seashore Electric Railway must have presented quite an amazing spectacle, even during those late Victorian days of engineering excellence. Affectionately known as the 'Daddy-Long-Legs', 'spider car' or 'sea car', the railway resembled a piece of seaside pier that had broken away and was moving by itself through the sea. Although closed over a hundred years ago, interest in the Daddy-Long-Legs Railway remains strong and it has become a Brighton icon. The book details the history of the Daddy-Long-Legs and features the best collection of photographs of it so far assembled, along with plans, timetables and posters and associated features such as Volk's Electric Railway and the piers assembled as a landing stage for the Daddy-Long-Legs. This will be the first book to concentrate solely on this unique and fascinating piece of British seaside history.

The classic minute-by-minute account of the sinking of the "Titanic," in a 50th anniversary edition with a new introduction by Nathaniel Philbrick First published in 1955, "A Night to Remember" remains a completely riveting account of the "Titanic"'s fatal collision and the behavior of the passengers and crew, both noble and ignominious. Some sacrificed their lives, while others fought like animals for their own survival. Wives beseeched husbands to join them in lifeboats; gentlemen went taut-lipped to their deaths in full evening dress; and hundreds of steerage passengers, trapped below decks, sought help in vain. Available for the first time in trade paperback and with a new introduction for the 50th anniversary edition by Nathaniel Phil-brick, author of "In the Heart of the Sea" and "Sea of Glory," Walter Lord's classic minute-by-minute re-creation is as vivid now as it was upon first publication fifty years ago. From the initial distress flares to the struggles of those left adrift for hours in freezing waters, this semicentennial edition brings that moonlit night in 1912 to life for a new generation of readers.

One of drag racings very popular classes formed was the Gassers. During the 50s, Model A and 1932-34 Fords were considered the hot set-up for these gas classes. Using Ford V-8 "flatheads" and later overhead valve engines, Gas Coupe and Sedan classes had to maintain stock wheelbases and the engine relocation was limited.
By the mid-60s, it was rare to find an upper classed gasser with any other body make than Willys, Studebaker, Austin or Anglia. They were the stoutest full-bodied cars on strips nationwide. Touring teams ran four to six times every week, often traveling several hundred miles day and night to make their next dates.
This was old school racing! However, interest waned as fliptop funny cars took over in popularity. The battles in A/GS (later AA/GS) ranks created many heroes and villains who etched their marks into drag racing history. Gassers shared with fans of the quarter mile one the most thrilling overall racecar types, and for an era that was all too short, they were literally the Kings of the Sport. Enjoy this photo book that takes you back to that time.
