Topic: What does " Before " mean here?
Posted: Thursday, April 27, 2017 4:39:48 AM
Talking about the price of a car when it is said that:

Pricing starts at $30,680 USD before applicable federal and state tax credits/rebates

Does " before " here means in advance or without taking tax into consideration?
Does it mean that the real price (including taxes) will be higher?

Topic: What does " limited set specifications " mean?
Posted: Wednesday, April 19, 2017 6:50:36 AM
I want to know the meaning of the phrase itself.

Limited set specifications.

I think it means a set of specifications (or technical features) that is limited.

Am I right?

It is about racing cars in the following context:

Car Aerodynamics are one of the top performance advantages any racecar can have over its competitors, especially in racing series like F1 or Indy Car and other open wheel race series- with limited set specifications.

Does it refer to F1 Regulations regarding engine power limitations?

Does it mean a blow at an angle which is less than vertical?

Or simply a non-vertical blow?
Topic: What does " curing parts " mean?

I came across this phrase here:

Besides being time-intensive, the carbon-fiber manufacturing process is also an energy hog. The storage freezers and occasional blast with the hair dryer are minor compared to the autoclave, a pressurized oven used to cure finished parts. My particular hunk of hand-laid goodness will bake in the oven for six hours at nearly 400 degrees, all while under six times the normal atmospheric pressure.

What does it mean by curing parts?

What does the expression " Logged and transparent to " mean in the following sentence:

The other challenge was making sure to always weigh the interests of Renault and Nissan equally. I allocated my time between the companies 50-50 and made sure it was clearly logged and transparent to all employees.

Is he referring to the awareness of employees about the time he spends in each company?
