    The GT6 Epic Whining and Crying Thread

    I wouldn't be suprised lol. IMO the sad part is that we never really saw a finely polished, legitimately completed GT release on the entire lifespan of the PS3. Instead we had GT5 Prologue, which was an expensive tease and very short on content, but showed some promise for the future of GT on...

    2015 Ford Mustang - General Discussion

    So much for the "smarter size" rumors, otherwise I could probably talk myself into buying one lol. But damn...at ~ 188 inches, it's a good foot and half longer than my 07 350z, and about a foot longer than a new Vette (with a very similar wheelbase). I had a 2007 GT (with a turbo and bunch of...

    Are any of your preorders getting ready to ship?

    Gotta love UPS & Amazon (and their release date arrival) :rolleyes: My package arrived at the local UPS carrier facility (about 20 miles away) yesterday at 6 A.M....30 f'in hours later and the tracking info on Amazon hasn't shown any progress since. Then I go on UPS' website to try and track...

    The '13 driver transfer discussion/speculation thread op updated 16/10

    It has been a bit frustrating not to see Hulk at least get a shot with one of the top teams out there, although there is a lot of talent out there, and sometimes it's not as clear cut as the results show (something which Mclaren seemed suckered into a bit when picking up Perez lol). Personally...

    2013 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

    Yea that's very much true (or the possibility rather). I was hoping to find a good clip of the incident on YT (to analyze further) before I posted my response, but I didn't have any luck finding such. So with that said, without knowing a lot of the specifics (Alonso's/Vergne's closing rates, if...

    2013 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

    Why? Because he never made the attempt as far as I'm aware of. Maybe he should have given it a shot though :lol: (btw I'm just being a smart ass here lol) It's always a tough call on these types of incidents. IMO just because Vergne had "the line and the position" doesn't mean he should then...

    2013 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix

    Oo Sorry :dopey: Looking at your post again, that was rather obvious. I'll blame my lack of sleep :lol:

    2013 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix

    As far as the skinnier rear wing aiding overtaking, I think from our veiwpoint it's a bit hard to say with any certainty. The last sector of Suzuka requires a fair bit of downforce really, and Webber might have just been losing a bit too much ground going though the final chicane complex, while...

    2013 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix

    A familiar sight with these 3 on the podium lol. "Ichiban!!! Ichiban!!!" just in case you forgot :lol:

    Was a bit scruffy at times IMO, but not bad in the end.

    How about that traction control on the Red Bull's eh :lol:

    "What’s inside Newey and Vettel’s magic hat?" by Giancarlo Minardi

    And we still have yet to hear (as far as I'm aware) of any complaints from the teams (who should be the most credible sources, if the accusations are true)...other than Hamilton (at Korea), who is quite known for saying off the wall stuff lol. I wonder if Hamilton thinks Sauber were using TCS as...

    "What’s inside Newey and Vettel’s magic hat?" by Giancarlo Minardi

    +1 You beat me to it :) Watch the first 30 seconds or so of this clip. Vettel pokes fun regarding the use of traction control. I can't believe how seriously the Jalopnik article/link took his words as some type of solid evidence :rolleyes: :lol:

    "What’s inside Newey and Vettel’s magic hat?" by Giancarlo Minardi

    Amen to that sarcasm :lol: But seriously, I get a kick out of some of these random sources/armchair experts (whether it be on twitter, blogs, etc.) that continually try to smooth people over, attempting to pass their speculation off as fact (however intriguing it might be). The average reader...

    I think he's probably referring to Silverstone (2011 or 2012?).

    2013 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix

    Seems this Vettel, booing debate has taking over just about every thread nowadays :/ As far as I'm concerned, "haters are going to hate" (for various reasons: Jealousy, greed, the need to see you fail/erradicated, etc.) ...and it shouldn't come as any suprise or let it bother you at the end...

    "What’s inside Newey and Vettel’s magic hat?" by Giancarlo Minardi

    Exactly, we and the media need something outside of the spectrum to create a hoopla over :lol: That's what humans do...over complicate anything possible to try and create more satisfaction lol. This is another point that I don't buy into. Newey's cars have been making strange noises (related...

    "What’s inside Newey and Vettel’s magic hat?" by Giancarlo Minardi

    It's a possibility in my eyes....but it's just as possible that it may be simply down to superior downforce production at low speeds, related to some trickery with exhaust blowing (which has been their ace for some time now). It's also worth mentioning that Vettel only did 1 lap in Q3 at...

    Porsche 911 GT3 (991) Announced!

    Gee, those are some incredible numbers for a little, normally aspirated 6 cylinder :lol: The dual clutch transmissions nowadays really bring a significant advantage to the straightline acceleration/numbers. Good move by Porsche to throw the PDK at GT3 to help it stay hot on the heels of the GTR...
