    3D is still a ways off for quality. Even movies take me a while to adjust to. In home 3D is expensive for the return you get. We have 5 state of the art theaters at work, and render shots for movies in 3D, and even on those screens it's not even close to the clarity of 2D.

    Here's a picture of our adults only playroom/driving room. Setup includes: two 50" Samsung plasmas, two PlayStations, two wheels/pedals (T300RS & a DFGT, getting the second T300RS next week). Can you tell whose wheel is who's in the picture haha. It's all mounted on a 36" slab door with two antique fireside chairs for comfort. I do plan on building two rigs later this year for the room, I'm currently working on some drawings now in my spare time coming up with different ideas/designs. I admit that it kinda sucks having to do and/or buy two of everything but I love the fact my wife is into gaming as much as myself, wouldn't change it for the world........Gonna be expensive for me when GT7 finally debuts.

    That's awesome @sseyferth! Maybe I could convince my girlfriend to join me in some races :p

    Edit: I like the "Keep calm" sign on the right, haha.

    Lol, thanks @Falango. Saw that and couldn't resist. Btw, It really helps having your significant other enjoy gaming. Makes spending the money on crap that much easier haha.

    Anyone watching F1 live? I'm still awake from work and they're actually airing FP1 AND FP2 which is rare. Normally it's just FP2, Qualifying, and Race. This weekend they're showing all three free practice sessions, qualifying, and a full hour of pre-race coverage instead of the usual half hour. Not too shabby

    What's TSN? What's your cable provider?

    Oh, you're in Canada. Probably very different setup from US

    Sports channel. It's the only sports channel here that broadcasts F1. They use the SkySports feed, but dumbed down with no analysis or anything.

    It's all good now. Took some time to get it going. Pre season jitters even for media?

    I got so tired of the crap coverage from TSN I cancelled all the sports bundles from Bell, period. We got DSL on our road last year and unlimited high speed. I had to wait a day after Quali and the race but dl'd the complete Skysports coverage each weekend from a torrent site, averaged 8 hrs of coverage, it was awesome.
    Hoping I can do that again this year.

    Please remember guys, NO F1 SPOILERS! Some of us have to wait a day or two to see it!!

    My memories of F1 go back to the late sixties, so I was very surprised to find out that there was a film made that I was not aware of until @vovik05 told me of it just being released on Netflix. Watched it last night, it is awesome, from the real day's of F1!

    Here's the info for those who have been in the dark like myself :banghead: :dunce:

    WEEKEND OF A CHAMPION
    Filmmaker Roman Polanski spends a weekend with world champion driver Jackie Stewart as he attempts to win the 1971 Monaco Grand Prix, offering an extraordinarily rare glimpse into the life of a gifted athlete at the height of his powers.

    TSN didn't understand the time difference between Canada and Aussieland. FP2 eventually came up on the correct time, but I was concerned at first when I had to fast forward for a half-hour or so

    I usually do the same because I like the full analysis you get from them, pre and post race and qualifying. It's great!

    Ya I realized that after I checked the start time on the F1 site. Ended up watching it live so all is good!

    Random gear head/car guy question.

    I want to remove the heat shield that's on my hood. Just for aesthetic purposes. I've seen cars without but not sure if they're just show cars or still functional. If I drive without that material there, what will happen?

    I have a 2004 Nissan Sentra. Still an issue no matter what? If so, then why do people drive without them?

    I seriously want to take the back seat bench out just to save weight but it's technically my dad's car and he won't let me dick around.
