The Trabant is an old, former East German car brand from Zwickau, Saxony.
According to the Wikipedia:
“In 2008, Time magazine rated the Trabant as one of the 50 worst cars ever made.”
“and it is said that it might symbolize of the sickness of the former East Germany’s system.”
However, the Trabant 601 still has advantages to our recently most advanced cars, namely it had use
two-stroke engine. I think that “the specialists” confuse advantages of four-stroke engine with flywheel engine’s and therefore they do not see the two-stroke engine’s as better. And Trabant had bearings and needle bearings for piston pins, according to this site:
The needle bearings can reduce the friction much better than the oil only. Nevertheless, they rearly provided to engines this good piece part.
The Wikipedia also mentioned that
“In the West, much has been written about the Trabant, mostly negative: to comedic effect, emphasis was placed on the shortcomings of the Trabantt”
however the problem of the Communism still is in our world, after its fall. The HONDA S600 had needle bearings, in 1964. However, it is forgotten somehow. Although, with these technologies HONDA won the first F1 race as it was written in the following quotation:
“Made of aluminum, it features roller-chain-driven dual overhead cams, hemispherical cross-flow heads, four Keihin side-draft carbs, and a built-up crankshaft that uses seven caged, needle-roller bearings for the mains and connecting-rod big-ends. This setup enables a 9500-rpm redline and can safely spin to above 11,000 revs! (If this sounds like Formula 1 technology, remember that Honda entered F1 racing in 1963, developing a unique 1.5-liter V-12 engine and chassis that won its first race in 1965.)
According to recent news, so Honda was asked to produce motor to Mclaren after Mercedes motor usage driving its racing cars.
It is strange a little bit.
This means the recent West system’s sickness to the former East Germany’s! The causes of these failures and sins can be searched among the Matrix and its leaderships.
At this point, I would like to recommend some relevant ones of my blog posts:
And Ferrari and Toyota do not produce engines like Trabant’s from these aspects, although the first earned the world’s most powerful brand in this year, the next brand is the largest car maker in the world in 2013, again. Source:
And McLaren Formula 1 Racing Team use Mercedes engines to their cars, according to this page:
If the bests have the same problem then not them can be blamed actually for the faults. The faults’ origin can be find in our system of the value exchangement or market. We can say that the other areas have similar problems nowadays as well. The bad workers cheat the things and have got share as payment, and good guys have got the punishment if they talk back about it without bad guys’ permission. However, of course good workers deserve the money and cheaters deserve punishments. In history, the Soviets could try make justice in this theme, under the system of “Socialism”.
According to Edward Teller, the father of Hydrogen bomb:
“the Capitalism is not good, but there is no better”.
He is dead, now, but I think it can be supposed he would have changed his mind if he would live now.
We hope that the EU try to change these problems after all, and the next link shows one of these willings probably:
However, this problems are not only in the carmaker industry of the EU! Those problems are in our world political and legal systems’!
So revolutions must be started right now!
