that dude who was driving the R34 cant HT. a car like that deserves a better driver than that. -snip- it was terrible seeing such a riced out RX7 tho The driver of the GT-R was Tsuchiya Keiichi. I didn't think he was driving that poorly. I also don't think that I can call the RX-7 riced out. Rememb...

Things I've done around the house: -Poured out a bowl of cereal with milk at the table , walked over to the utensil drawer, grabbed a fork, and sat back down. Didn't notice until I tried to eat. -Finished eating lunch, walked towards the sink, placed fork in trash and paper plate in sink. That first...

"Hooked up" means that the flywheel and clutch are fully synchronized. At this point you can even dump the clutch pedal and incur no wear since the rate that the clutch is spinning at matches the rate of the flywheel, thus no more slip.

May I also suggest the Zune? It supports video, has a 3.0" screen, and plays AAC. If you go this route you wouldn't have to transcode from AAC to MP3. As long as your music is not DRMed you should be able to play them on the Zune without transcoding. I believe there may also be a way to remove iTune...

Heheh, stories like this make me smile. The guy was lucky to have one of the Standardshift seniors behind him on that hill. Imagine if it was an impatient soccer mom in an SUV behind him. Hey, you should've also handed him a Standardshift.com business card while you were at it!

eaglecatcher, as long as you didn't tell iTunes to add DRM to your music when you were ripping them from CDs, you should have no problems using your iTunes imported music on other non-Apple players (provided that the player can play AAC). If you have mostly mp3s in your library then that would make ...

Six, I was a beta tester for the PS2 version. I could see the potential in the game but frankly I felt that the PS2 was too underpowered for that game and the physics weren't really there. Not to mention the game was still very buggy even for a beta. So it shouldn't be surprising that beta testing t...

Six, I love the Burnout series! Regarding the sounds, you're absolutely right, the devs really bumped it up from the first game. I haven't spent much time trying to crash, but when you brought it up I had to try it out. And, wow, I instinctively winced at the sound. A head on collision gave me a rea...

Forza 2

Has anyone else with an Xbox 360 downloaded and played the Forza Motorsports 2 demo? What are your impressions of the game? I'm having a great time with it and I'm definitely buying the full version once it's released. The forums on Forzamotorsports.net ran a little hotlapping competition last weeke...

You seem to be treating your handbrake like a digital device---don't. It is not simply on and off. The handbrake is no different from your regular brake in the general mechanics of how brakes work except for the fact that you actuate it with your hand. You can pull up on the brake lever lightly and ...
