Looks a pretty cool idea. I reckon higher up would be better tho, cause it does look a tad intrusive at times..

Quote from the_angry_angel :Blame the lack of work over the winter holiday and wanting to shut myself away from the world First time I've even touched LFS since I got rid of the wheel a few years ago really. Glad to see the forums haven't changed from their normal bitchy nature

Not bad, nowt interesting since we last spoke. Just lots of work and a mostly other non-LFS side projects here and there

How are you? Well?

Haha, I'm the same mate. Not played propley in god knows how long! Yes, I did notice that, Same old, same old .

Good good mate. Yeh, im good thanks, Just getting on with life as usuall.

Dyno results are so easy to forge its unreal. Its hard to get an honest figure these days with power, which I why a lot of people dont care about pub talk (figures), they care about how the car drives on the road.

JakG: That graph does look a bit ropey tbh, the only reason your torque is so high, is because it spikes in power. Probley boost spike tbh. However, diesels are known for being all or nothing cars, and also with a box you cant really complain, as its not a custom map. If you went for a custom map on the other hand, parts of the map could be tweeked to best minimize that spike. Ive learnt a fair bit about remapping, and you can control a heck of a lot with the ecu. Especially on turbo cars.

Quote from dadge :i would agree that it could seem a bit pointless. but i do understand why they are popular. i'd say that the gauge is a good buy and it has a purpose.

Of course it has its purpose.... on tuned car running high boost. My cars running 300bhp, at 17psi. I use the boost gauge to make sure I'm not getting mental overboosting or the boost isnt all over the place... but on a standard derv...?

Have you been caining that car about? Or riding the clutch?

Jakg...Is that a boost gauge?

Nah, its going past 300BHP on the Z20LET thats a problem. When people start pushing 320, 330BHP you can kiss it goodbye. Got the dnyo print in my bedroom, not taken a photo yet tho. lol.

Its been lowered since that photo, but not massivly. Just enough so the wheels hug the archs and it doesnt look like a monster truck.


Edit: Also, J its getting forged later in the year, so if it goes bang it will do me a favor !

My moneys on clutch too...

Ive had a clutch go on me, A slave cylinder go on me, and a CV joint snap on me.

Slave cylinder ment I couldnt get any gears atall.
CV Joint ment I could select gears, but heard a bad clonking noise as the driveshaft was jumping about in the broken cv joint.

Clutch went and had exactly the same as you described...

Glad I saw this thread, was about to make a new one.

Got some thoughts on this game... For starters, is anyone else feeling a bit let down with the game play of this game? For the video I saw of this game months and months ago, I was really excited for it to be released. Now Ive got it tho, I'm kinda wishing I hadnt bought it.

Who the heck let the makers or burnout think they could join in development of this game, and expect a good outcome. Driveability isnt that good atall, You can take corners and stupid speeds and just drift them, I never remember NFS hot pursuit being like that. Also, Whos idea was it to get rid of manual from a NFS game? All I see with this game is burnout with some new tracks and NFS cars and sounds.

I like the idea of the cop/racer careers, and also the options the cops have. Realitivly nice line up of cars too, but still when you get in them, its just back to burnout.

Anyone else got the same kinda thoughts?

I do kickboxing/ MMA. I train 2 maybe 3, even sometimes 4 times a week, for 2 and half to 3 hours a nite. The main thing I find for kickboxing is flexabilty. I stretch everynite, and get good results from it. I can kick way over my head and most other people too. I'm 6ft 2.

hey guys, Got a quick question. Is anyone orginising a 2010 LFS Meet? I went to the first one last year (Thanks again Jason), and had a great time. I dont visit this forum much lately due to being so busy but still have not noticed much on the front of a 2010 meet. Anyone thinking of doing anything? Or are meets out of the window now?

Cheers guys.

Wow Jason. You really are getting stuck into this. I have to say tho, If we are going to this centre, we must get the 3 level karting track. That looks so challenging its unreal!

Why do I have my suspicions that Jason will be organising the next event?

That track does look really intresting with 3 levels!
