What does " Go-To " Car mean here?

Think of the Nissan 240SX as the BRZ that can take the occasional hit. Since the price point is such that it can be repaired by anyone on any budget, you can afford to drive a bit less gingerly than you would with a car on which you still owe 36 months of payments. It's the go-to car for those of us courageous/insane/stupid enough to go drifting for the first time (just ask Mighty Car Mods and Ryan Tuerck), and if set up correctly, it can be a damn near unstoppable autocross and IMSA racer.

Topic: Extract

It is still not clear to me. To extract more heat from the tube? Does it mean that the heat from the fluid is transferred to the tubes?

What does the word " extract " mean here?

The amount of heat transferred to the tubes from the fluid running through them depends on the difference in temperature between the tube and the fluid touching it. So if the fluid that is in contact with the tube cools down quickly, less heat will be transferred. By creating turbulence inside the tube, all of the fluid mixes together, keeping the temperature of the fluid touching the tubes up so that more heat can be extracted, and all of the fluid inside the tube is used effectively.


Does it mean to dissipate?

I agree!

What does " on a limited basis " mean here?

Modern premium vehicles will feature anti-knock sensors, so even if you were to fill up with the wrong fuel, it wouldn’t do much, if any, damage to the vehicle’s internals on a limited basis.


Does it mean for a short period of time?

Thanks for your help.

What does the word " shorts " mean here?

Engine Sensors - Most sensors should last upwards of 150,000 miles, but accumulated time and mileage can cause some sensors to fail much sooner. A bad sensor will usually turn on the Check Engine Light and set a fault code. Oxygen sensors on late model cars should usually last upwards of 100,000 miles, but may be fouled at any mileage by coolant leaks or an engine that is burning oil. Throttle position sensors can develop worn spots causing erratic readings. Crankshaft Position Sensors can develop internal cracks or shorts from exposure to engine heat that affect their output. Same for coolant sensors. Mass airflow sensors may become contaminated with dirt or fuel varnish.

Does it refer to short-circuit phenomenon or something else?

What does " Power Sector " mean here?

Additionally, the Clean Power Plan finalized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2015 offers opportunities for even greater progress, as states must collectively cut their power-sector carbon emissions 32 percent by 2030.


Does it refer to power plant(s) of each sector in a state?

The Algeria is not visible in your map, it is below Spain.

I think it is tough because it passes through desert.
