Exhaust Gas Recirculation
Takes a little from the exhaust and puts it through the engine intake again. A second chance to burn particulates/gases and improve emissions.
Lots of diesels have them, and lots of owners take them off when they regularly get sooted up.
(the above is how I understand it. I'm sure someone will be along shortly to nitpick)
For a time I set up a recorder using my mobile phone, following the wife's battle with a 'story changer'
I used the free version of DailyRoads Voyager on Android, used to fit the phone to the passenger headrest so it wasn't obvious and had a decent field of view. It records your speed as well.
Can't use the phone's sat-nav or music streaming when strapped to the headrest though.
I've only just got a PS3 and GT5 in November (waited for GT6 for Xmas )
The physics are not great compared to PC sims, but that is not the reason for me. For petrol heads who like cars, it's great to look through all the available exotica (or cars you've owned) and plan your next purchase.
And it looks great! The progression through the levels is enjoyable enough, I haven't played online yet.
I got my PS3 second hand from CEX (in UK), it's kept me entertained while we wait for the next LFS update.
Just don't expect to be blown away by the physics
One of my earliest memories in LFS (prob 2003) was racing regularly on a server where there was one racer mostly winning all the time. Then one day after they left, someone said their username was Russian for Little Girl! She showed me up, can't remember the name though
My understanding of the status...
LFS development is still going on, at their pace.
In the past whenever Scawen answered someones question, then more questions would be fired back. If he answered them, more would follow - squared. If he didn't answer within 20 minutes, people got shirty!
So I understand why there is no communication from the devs until they have something to announce. They haven't announced the project is dead, so I assume it's continuing.
PS. we paid £12 or £24 for what the content was at the time. Nothing further was guaranteed, they are not our slaves.
