About Power Steering Boxs
Power steering, also known as power assisted steering, makes steering a motor vehicle easier for the driver by reducing the amount of force that is required to be applied to the steering wheel when trying to manoeuvre the car and almost every vehicle that is built nowadays has some form of power steering system.
Although electric power assisted steering is rising in popularity, by far the most prevalent system at present is hydraulic power.
Hydraulic steering employs a pump, which is normally driven by a belt. The pump generates pressure and the driver’s control is provided by either a rack and pinion or a Audipower steering box. Whichever of the two systems is used, the basic operation is the same. The fluid pressure generated by the pump is used to push against a piston. When the steering wheel is turned, pressure flows to one side, causing the piston, which is attached to the steering gears, to move. The driver is thereby able to allow hydraulic pressure to do most of the work involved in turning the steering wheel.
Although the rack and pinion system is felt to provide lighter weight and greater control precision, the Audi power steering box is considered to be harder wearing and possess greater durability.
- In 1971, Audi reached the landmark that all car manufacturers hope to hit sooner rather than later: the production of their millionth car. By 1976, they reached 2 million!
- If you’ve ever looked at an Audi RS and mistaken it for a Porsche, you haven’t gone mad. The car was actually a collaboration with Porsche, and the RS has the distinctive grille and tailgate of the famous sports car.
- You might think that crash tests in cars have always been a requirement, but it was Audi that first started doing them. Far from the modern methods used today, Audi engineers simply let their cars roll down hills until they hit something. Spectators used to line up to watch the excitement.
- The oldest car race event in the world, the 24hr Le Mans, has been won by Audi an impressive 13 times, most of which were in the classic R8 racer.
- Audi was founded after the German engineer August Horch fell out with the co-founder of his first manufacturing company. He called the new company August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
