    Yeah, imports are cool and all but I keep seeing Ford XB GTs on Port Road about 11AM (on the way to Uni via bus) and god damn they are amazing. Usually some interesting rides on port road at any time now I think about it. Oh and a mint blue LX Torana that looked written off on south road v cormack road. Tears were had.

    Ridiculous amounts of skill displayed here, I only hope they take on apprentices and continue their trade and the love of their trade (It wouldn't be possible otherwise).
  3. Thinking of getting a laptop vs a desktop

    Ususally depends what you're after. Using Moore's law laptops today are nearly as powerful as their desktop counterparts. What you'll find is that each laptop is more or less the same just diferent plastic and different bloatware associated with the brand. So what you need to do is haggle down for best price or freebies (bag/mouse/modem/etc). I would personally recommend Asus as they have a 2 year INTERNATIONAL warranty. Dell's warranty is also fairly high - I've heard of a guy driving 4-5 hours to a remote location to replace a part, so that seems to leave them in good stead. If you need a bigger screen you can just buy a 24" monitor (or your HDTV) and plug it in via HDMI. Also you may want to look on newegg or amazon (American) to get some killer prices as compared to locally. Hope this has helped.
  4. Hoon Car Compound

    They charge like $240 per day impounded I believe. Friend's brother was caught DUI in the family Ford Laser and got raped something chronic regarding how much he had to cough up. I don't understand why they don't scrap those cars either if they're only worth 2 days of impound, oh police - you so crazy.

    Surprise Video - SFW. I know you guys will like it. Try Company of Heroes for LANs or any Unreal Tournament, it's much fun, I promise. Also quick note to Fire-Child: the '3-4 hour battery life' is when the laptop's on standby, with actual use it'll be more 1-2 hours - especially pushing the hardware that your laptop has. What brand is it?
  6. s13 silvia Rally Car

    This is quality. Will definately pass on to other people. How's it like skillwise compared to drifting? I'm assuming you're shitting it alot more when there's trees left and right of the track as you're going round

    Long time reader but I thought I'd finally make an account so I can interact with the community and learn more about cars. So I've inherited a Daihatsu Charade (G11 with GTTI parts) which is such an awesome car despite what most people think (there's videos on youtube of the GTTI smoking your generic 'cool car') Unfortunately the poor thing needs an engine rebuild and being a skint uni student and all these things don't just 'happen', one of those 'projects' as you might say. Anyway, hopefully looking forward to meeting some of you and learning more about cars. Cheers, Mark P.S. I'm well versed with computers and what not, so if you need any help just give us a shout and I'll see what I can do.
