Burning fuel inside a car’s engine creates a lot of heat. Most of it has to be removed by a cooling system. Liquid cooling systems have a mixture of water and chemicals. A water pump forces this mixture to flow between the cylinders of the engine. The hot water is then pumped through a radiator where the air carries away the heat.

Wheelbase – The measurement between the car’s front and rear wheels – ie. long-wheel base versus short-wheel base. A longer base equates to a large car/more space. A short wheel base can sometimes make a car more nimble, but can deliver a less flat ride – for example, some short-wheel base 4x4s feel like they tip or sway around corners. This is because of combination of their height and the short wheel base.
