Re: FT86 -- Who wants one?

200k?!? I would rather get a Lan Evo for that. Why does everyone expect high pricing? Does Al Futtaim have a history of overpricing new vehicles? But at 110K I'm also in line for this. Anyway, apart from the price, that article with the Toyota engineer really confirms that this is what I want in a c...

FT86 -- Who wants one?

Finally a lightweight, rear-wheel drive, stick shift, flat-4, 2-door goodness. It promises to be a real driver's car.
Who's looking forward to the FT86 and its Subaru counterpart?

Re: Abu Dhabi Formula 1 GP 2011

Day 2: qualifying session. Was a great qualifying as far as they go. A close race between Red Bull, McMerc, and Ferrari. Vettel! He drives past pit and starts another lap during Q1. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v59/daarklord/2011%20Nov%20AD%20Grand%20Prix%20F1/Day%202/th_IMG_7606.jpg Alonso! Af...

Abu Dhabi Formula 1 GP 2011

I managed to get a ticket. Grin. I have photos from today to share with my UB brothers (and sisters). Hail corporate clients!

Re: Radars in Dubai (General Information)

I got flashed by a mobile radar last night on the overpass on financial center road in front of Dubai Mall (the one that has exits into the Dubai Mall parking). I slowed down to about 90 because I spotted it and I was thinking "what is that thing?" and looking at it and suddenly it went flash! Yeah ...

Thanks for coordinating things, Ozi. It was definitely a great, tire screeching success!

Re: Want to gain some hp

Isn't the easiest power boost you can do is tune the ECU? Stock ECU is made to conserve gas and reduce emissions, so change it and you got instant power.

Oh wait..
"Remaps are very difficult because Toyota lock their ECU’s and no one has yet come up with a way of unlocking them."

Damn.

Re: Track Morning on the 30th of September, 2011 - Club Circuit

Full? Well that's ok, I'm in a racing slump anyway. Trying to improve my multiple downshift and it's so confusing I lost to a BMW (M5? or something similar?) on a Sheik Zayed Road ramp! The indignity!

May show up to watch this time, since I missed last time's.

Re: TNT and GTtwincam's Randomography

Noo! Noooo! Poor sweet STI!

They should come with a douchebag detection system that ejects the driver onto the street and then parks safely waiting to be recollected by Subaru.
