I like that there is competition out there, because it makes driftting cars and eqiupment evolve.. but peronally I like the freeun "show what u got" gatebil style more, its more relaxed, and you get to see more styles and ways of drifting

Ah, didnt think of that! Just ordered a coupple of redfilters, will try and see if i can get used to it, since i like the effekt it gives

Love it! your the reason I started with film! shot 25rolls of film since i started last years winter and love it! I still find it difficult to master correct exposure, but it gets better with practice :) Ive seen on instagram that u use redfilters. do u use it on all of ur lenses or just some ? I found redfilters to stop some light, and it was more difficult to see whats in my viewfinder with a strong redfilter. Keep shooting film! film is not dead<3
It will always have that fwd look.. the front end ride hight and how its built has always looked a bit strange. I love it though.. when the looks of a car is an outcome of functional racing design I can always appriciate it

@dirtydesmo @SMRacing @132000 "In a stoichiometric mixture, ethanol has an evaporative cooling of about 4 times that of gasoline, while methanol has the effect of about 9 times larger than gasoline."
You win! Didnt know it was that mutch of a difference.. So yeah I see the need for an intercooler or water/metanol injection :)
1 year, 1 month ago on When Cubes Meet Compressors…</br>And The Street
@132000 @SMRacing e85 is 85% etanol and 15% gasoline, so the cooling effect from the 85% is quite significant..
If anyone from spot on is reading these comments Im just wondering how mutch of an hp gain the intercooler has? since its running e85 wich is alreaddy a verry cold running fuel..
One word: Dedication.

Im always curious as to how photographers like Jonathan decide wether to go with colour or B&W, its probably a gut feeling.. but do you ever combine B&W and coulurs in one shoot, insted of going all b&W or colours ?

1 year, 5 months ago on Discussion: Let’s Talk About Drifting
Im building a drift car at the moment, but I have no intention of competing in any series. Drifting for me is all about car controll, pushing yourself. You get cred for beeing good mutch like hanging out skateboarding with your friends and showing off tricks. #freestyle #hooning #goodlife Watching livestream FD is for me mutch more about seeing that one sick run, wheter it be competition, practice or qualifying
why is the image quality so poor ?
1 year, 6 months ago on #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER: One Year On…
its been bugging me alot, it seems the screens are all so different, so Ive decided to always use calibrated screen for editing..
1 year, 6 months ago on Through My Lens: Formula Drift Texas
Larry, do you edit your pictures with calibrated screens ? how do u make sure the viewers get to see the pictures as you intended them to be?
@Rob Bullough @SMRacing Ive used the presentation mode a bit more since the last time i wrote, and as an distraction free viewing it Works great! The only thing i would have improved is where i click to change Picture. Its kind of annoying to look for the little button on the bottom right each time. If half the image let you og onwards and the other half made it og backwards that would be great :)
1 year, 7 months ago on Seventeen Lambos And Some Strobes
not what I hoped for :(
The presentation mode is loading slow,( and the textbox in the corner is annoying.
The whole expreience of reading a story is worse. Mainly because its so mutch taken appart insted of reading it like a book from top to bottom like it used to be.
All the suggestions on what to read, on the right side takes too mutch space, it all looks messy even though the story picture might be beautifull, it all just becomes messy.
you have added a lot of cool features, like the continiously scrolling stories on the front page, I like that. But it might not be too smart to put alot of stuff onto the page, it works fine on my computer, but I could take a wild guess that many will notice it all beeing slower and not as smooth an fine as intended. But I might be wrong all the same.
The background used to be black right ? I liked that alot more than the white. The white pops out and takes away from the story, and what I am supposed to look at, again looks more messy.
I can see as I read through what I have written that its mainly negative stuff, but this is just some of the things that first came to my mind.
I could be all wrong, and the rest of the readers might love it. But I thought Id share my honest oppinion.
As long as you continue to deliver quality stories and pictures Ill just have to adapt to this new layout, but I hope you take some things in consideration, if more readers feel the same way I do.
Happy speedhunting :)
@sean klingelhoefer I wa driving my old crappy escort mk4 down angsten, and 2/3 through the turn Vidar suddenly overtook me like a rocket! It was amazing to be so close and see first hand the amazing speed he had over the crest going upphill. My biggest wow moment til this day
1 year, 7 months ago on The Authentic Gatebil 993 GT2 Evo 2, For Real
@sean klingelhoefer Agreed, I always check my mirrors often when driving at gatebil, but this doesn look like gatebil, rather the gt racing series
I was gonna defend him right away before watching the film, but I did to be sure I didnt embarras myself. And I would have. Some bad driving there. He normaly drives fast, but maybye the car has mutch more potential..

@RodChong @SeanStott @corinhetherington I wanted to keep mine good and fresh in color so I wash em att 40 degrees celcius, and hang em to dry insted of using the drying mashine (shirtkiller)
@Larry Chen so the answer is really no, I guess thats the best option if you really need to capture that moment. One thing that I have learnt from reading all your articles here on speedhunters, and that I have started doing myself with great result, is to be more triggerhappy. Relating to that: Say on a day like f.eks Gatebil where there is more or less nonstop action, how many pictures do you shoot during that day ? How do you go about sorting out the goodies afterwards? Do you store the pictures directly to an exsternal harddrive, or do you keep them on your laptop until youre done editing, and sorting ?
1 year, 11 months ago on #maximumattack: Revisiting My Favorite Photos
@Larry Chen @sean klingelhoefer @PaddyMcGrath So the Larry I saw att Gatebil was a drone? that explains all this sorcery I see at #instagram, good imagination for a drone tho #poopcomingout
@Larry Chen do you allow yourself to do experimental stuff att crucial moments that you might get only once, and risk loosing that moment, or do you only experiment when you know you can do it over and over again ?
Larry i have a question: When you go to some sort of event, do you have youre speedhunters article alreaddy planed out ? so that later on when you do the actual shooting you sortof try to shoot the pictures you need to make that aricle, or do you just try to take pictures that look awsome, and make an article later on ?
@Phishy @SMRacing well if youre going racing I think this is as cheap as you could do it :)
1 year, 11 months ago on Discussion: Project Car Priorities
save money for a year, buy a used racecar body with suspension and all the goodies, buy a factory satandard engine/transmission (300hp atleast), do all the custom work to fit the new engine, buy the custom driveshaft, use all leftover money on tires amd fuel. Have as mutch fun as possible. as cheap as possible
I cant help but think of unmaned submariens or something like that.. it looks like its something that was made to work under the ocean.. in my oppinion not agressive enough..
