To Dakar Rally 2024 went down in history with him Carlos Sainz and Audi make up an unbeatable duo. Sainz and compatriot Lucas Cruz driving it Audi RS Q e-tron for about 7,900 km they managed to finish first with a lead 1 hour and 20 minutes, reaching the great victory.
THE Audi Sport developed the highly efficient Audi RS Q e-tron to such an extent that in just three years it will be ready to dominate in the most demanding race in the world. In order for the racing car to reach this distinction, the mechanics were needed to do their best to overtake the competition. One of the many unique systems she has was presented in a short video on her channel Red Bull Rally on YouTube.
As you can see the Audi RS Q e-tron has two built-in jacks which allow the crew to change tires or do other work on the underside of the car, wasting no time in picking it up. The truth is that these particular crickets are not rare in these matches, however their genius lies in their simplicity.
The system consists of from a pipe and a baseis quite reminiscent of the jacks we all use in passenger cars, with the difference that they “hide” inside the car and appear at the push of a button.
This is inside the cabin while there is also a spare on the outside of the carnear the doors, so he can control the crew the point where the jack will hit the ground.
In the comments of the video, most YouTube users were impressed from the jack of the Audi RS Q e-tron and many wished the system to be placed on passenger cars as well so that drivers save time and effort when they have branching. The truth is, however, that such a thing will hardly become a reality since such a system except it adds weight to the cars significantly increases production costs.
