    Great Websites of Automotive Related Information

    I thought I would start a thread of outstanding Websites for Information on Cars and also Technical Information and/or Parts Suppliers/Manufacturers. Sometimes it's hard to find the information you are after on the web. I hope this thread helps to find your automotive and information needs.

    I hope this thread only gets posts of links and descriptions as it will be a good resource for everyone to find out information quickly.

    Please try to post only one link per posting.

    I'll start the ball rolling with a few of my favorite websites:

    I found for converting just about every type units, such as hp-kW and ftlb-Nm etc.

    Unit Conversion Calculators

    For us Dutch-speaking people almost anything you need to know on technical issues can be found on TIMLOTO (Technische Informatica Motorvoertuigen Leerweg Open Technisch Onderwijs)

    I've been looking for a website that collects cars'/gearboxes' gear ratios. Does anybody know such a source?

    A useful site for technical information about F1, which tries to keep abreast of the latest testing developments in its Development Blog - Formula One uncovered! - F1technical.net

    There's nothing too scientific on there, it's all easy enough to understand for those of us without a significant engineering background (ie me! )
