Oh, very awesome... Congrats! Looks like you've got a kinda natural driving talent.

I was about to comment on your cars' thread the other night, but got distracted by Kevin's grand design on TV. :p I'll have a proper watch of your YouTube videos tonight though. It must be awesome to have a selection of decent racing circuits over east.

lol thanks, but I am definitely not a talented driver. I started by spinning out and crashing just like normal people do, and then I slowly trained myself to where I am now. Still a long way to go though.

My car is also nowhere near it's peak performance potential. About two weeks before the event I installed a completely new turbo setup on the engine, and two days before the event I was out doing some street-tuning and the turbo self-destructed! So I rushed to get the old setup back on and it was running fine for the race but quite lacking in top-end power.
And then there's the brakes, which are still stock and completely inadequate. I was braking waaaaay before everyone else and losing a lot of time there.
The handling balance was also a bit off. Racing driver excuses, etc :p

Fine, just very busy, come by here several times a week, but don't say much here anymore.
Don't play any of the recent NFS games, only sometimes when I'm feeling like it I grab a classic one and play that a bit.
And here.. well just check it out a bit if there is something new... mainly in general discussion.

Havent played a NFS game after Undercover... ok I tried the Shift demo, but didn't like it...
Still play games when I got the time, but racegame wise I stick with Forza.

But lately I don't have much time for gaming anyway.
To busy at the shop.

Yeah you could say that, we do performance upgrades for cars, and specialize in Toyota's, we also do engine swaps, rebuilds, turbo conversions etc. And we disassemble cars for parts. So in short a bit of everything :)

It takes up a lot of time, even if not at the shop, then working on the website etc.
