    Two very different Copperheads. The USvsUK prize is sort of a "Copperhead LM" (Concept Car LM). It's yellow or purple, whereas the B license prize is orangey red.

    The "Copperhead LM" has around 520HP and a rear wing so it is a good race car, it is in my All Gold Club but it only ran 5 races in GT.

    It is so light, i remember if you put the dampers on higher than 2 or 3 it would start getting all choppy at some tracks.

    Take an extended vacation from work and alternate between acid and coke, you'll never fall asleep, and there you go, plenty of time to get it done.

    i'm sort of like poolio in a way

    i picked up a used copy of gt1 the other day, the last time i played it properly i was like 6, and now i'm 12, i thought i had alll my game saves on my memory card, but when i loaded my game:( all my progress, all my replays - gone

    my favourite replay was in a race with my gto twinturbo at high speed ring i hit the barrier went 10 meters into the air and flew right over all 5 ai cars:lol:

    i also had hi-fi unlocked but i can't remember what that does

    oh the saga continues...................

    i fancied a blast on GT this evening only to be denied by my ps2 failing to read the disc. i thought it was a problem with the game but it appears my console is on it's way out as it isn't reading anything on a cd. dvd's are fine though so it still plays my ps2 games (just not the ones on cd-rom) :mad: :irked: :( :banghead:

    Well that's strange. usually it's the other way around: it can't read a DVD but it can read a CD.

    Buy a PS3, preferrably 60gb or 80gb model so it will play PS2 games as well.

    I combined my birthday and three months of saving to get mine.


    Just tell teh kids that they were bad and Santa isn't bringing them anything this year, but you have been exceptionally good and he is bringing you a nice big gift.

    Or new PS2s aren't too expensive these days.

    now you're just being silly. I got my PS2 slim in May of 2004, and it still works fine. It cost $149 at the time, so i'm sure you can find it cheaper nowadays. Not sure why you'd want to hold off on a great deal...

    Hey man, I'm with you, I'm playing GT all over again! These punk buddies of mine questioned my GT hardcore cred, but since I couldn't prove to them I got all gold in every version of GT, I'm doing it over!

    The solution to the time problem is...PSP. Get one, change to custom firmware, load GT1 into it and presto! Don't have to wait till you get back from the doctors to play! Just get that gold license at the waiting room!

    Good luck with it SUPER NUMBER :tup:. Prove to you punk buddies you're no noob :D.

    Unfortunately I don't own a PSP so I can't play at the waiting room :lol:.
