    @TEX36 I drove the track back in 2013 when I lived in Florida. And my review is, it's super fast but the dam track surface is so bumpy. I was driving a 99 Honda civic Coupe with about 240hp and the track still felt like every 5ft it was a small speed bumb

    Am surprised that they haven't corrected that difficulty. With "Racing" on the upswing, you would think the investment would increase racing entries and additional events.

    Yea I was watching this year's Tudor 12 hour race and the track still looks like a series of speed bumb. It's a good track don't get me wrong I just wish the final turn was more smooth

    As a kid, I had this book on how to make really awesome paper airplanes, as in F15s, F22s, 747s, MIGs, even stunt airplanes. They were great!! All I needed was regular old printer paper, glue, and that's it. Some of them flew really well, complete with rudder and ailerons that worked.

    The bumpiness has become part of it's known personality. It's almost as if it's accepted or even praised. I'm actually not sure what people would think if it became smooth. Some yahoo thought it would be a great idea to create more "racing" at Bristol and all that did was put a stop to a 25 year stretch of sellouts. Idiot.

    In response to that ^, since my phone is having a bit of an episode and my reply isn't showing:

    So is that actually the round 4 car.. like for realz for realz? The GT Planet article listed 3 cars released in the latest patch.. so if that's the round 4 car, did you get any info on what the 4th car used in GTA is??

    For Sunday's combo's, their needs to be just one correction. For the Mercedes Benz SLK 230 Kompressor '98, it lists max HP at 0. The max HP for the car is 201.

    I tried at 1am and it still will not let me in, weight still incorrect.


    TBH that's about as fancy as what my dad uses for professional portraits, you don't need much more than that. Great shots too!

    Thanks Connor! I agree, you don't need much. The setup cost me $115. The softboxes were $100, and the backdrop is actually a white vinyl pulldown shade that I got at Home Depot. It does the job perfectly.
