    Gran Turismo 7 "Coming Soon"?

    Ha ha, not falling for that one again. I assume it's just part of the PS5 promotion.

    The sleeper wagon

    The supercharger was great. The positive displacement design (Lysholm twinscrew) meant that there was no delay. The whole torque curve got pushed up about 120ft/lb upwards so it still had the typical BMW inline 6 strong midrange. It didn't add much to the noise, there was just faint whine. Yes...

    The sleeper wagon

    Very nice, they are great cars, mine just got a bit too old and I wanted to grab one of the last M2 before they got replaced with the M2 Competition model for 2019 (more expensive, doesn't sound as good).

    You got the touring nicely sorted as well. Now I'm gonna inspire you for the next car:

    The sleeper wagon

    I sold the car when it had over 300k kms two years ago.. But of course I remember all the numbers. I ran 225/40 front and 255/35 rear which is OEM size for 18" wheels. Once the rears went (and it didn't take long :) I got 265/35 rears but had to roll the fenders to stop rubbing with 18x9.5 ET45...

    The S2000 owner was quite envious of the torque :) Check out the other link with photos, it shows all the cars. Very strange lineup indeed, lots of wealthy people (and me) live here.

    Great questions. 1. It is in fact the A60 Supra, the last generation that was called Celica Supra. 2. Not nearly as many as Corvettes but I see one from time to time. There were two yesterday (out of 15-20 total cars) 3. Holy crap, you are right! No Miatas but again, the event was limited to...

    EDK's Real Life Racing Exploits

    And here are some photos - https://photos.app.goo.gl/VbtUa9poaSognhnV9 Fun day. Got through a 50L gas tank in 160km. The track is not very punishing on brakes but it got hot in the afternoon so the tires took serious beating.

    EDK's Real Life Racing Exploits

    Not EDK but I did a thing yesterday. Not very exciting video, just wanted to show you the track (Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit). The guy in the black M2 had some sticky tires and supposedly better brake pads. But I guess if you upgrade tires then the brakes become the weakest link and...

    GTP_WRS Week 147 : A Ferrari That Can Win

    Hi guys, too bad we are not getting much turnout these days. My kid is finally old enough to do some time trials but there is nobody from D3 or D4 left :(

    So has anyone solved the T300 ghost button presses?

    My wheel is out of warranty and I'm hoping I can fix it myself. It had some random button presses since day one but it was tolerable so I never bothered addressing it. Recently it got worse. Anyone got a DIY solution?

    Oh man, this is awesome combo. Short lap in a slowish car. It typically creates great close battles.

    LOL, great videos. I had no idea a cone can mess you up so much :) So tomorrow and Thursday we got the Viper, right? I should be able to do at least one of those races.

    Great fun, too bad about the DCs. I'd suggest to have a party chat going at least during the first stage of the race. This helped us in the past to make quick decisions about restarting. Also - damn, I'm rusty. I haven't touched GTS or any other racing game for about a year and it shows :)...
