@DWARRIORZ they sponsor the event series, but that doesn't mean the cars and sponsors on the cars are licensed to the game.
@speedhunters_dino @UWerqxTeam_MJ if this happens again, they need the real RE Amemiya Touge Monster to tackle the touge. i mean, what car is better built to take this on, initial D style? Don't get me wrong i LOVe seeing these race cars and the HKS car setting their time, but the monster....give it to Doriken!!!!
@JakWhite My favorite livery from any car, anywhere, EVER. Need For Speed and Andy Blackmore outdid themselves with this car!

@Worksport I think there should be a history lesson on the Escort, and a side-by-side comparison of the UK models and the neutered, thin-blooded embarrassing runts we were punished with in the USA.

@Smiggins @zephoto I've seen hints that tell me something is going to be debuted in the next months. I bet the contracts have been signed for at least one videographer to follow Larry and another to follow Dino, and a third deep in with the Gatebil guys. Rodzilla probably had it floating in his head a year and a half ago.

@Larry Chen @xrockonx Bro I have at least 1000 SH desktops in rotation, changing every 30 mins. And 5-10 more per week (20-30 if Lindbergh). There are a LOT of people doing the same I'm sure :)
@Ice Age @dadecode They were too busy integrating a fake engine sound into the audio system.

I thought that Pinto had died long ago. Read somewhere that it rolled backwards in the trailer and the car's rear end bumped the trailer door, burst into flames.

Great to have you take over Peter. Couple points:
a) More Lindbergh
b) Bring back Jonathan Brooks
c) Less obvious product placement
Thanks and good luck :)

3 months, 4 weeks ago on Everything Worked Out:</br> A Royal Porsche
I do like Porsches, and I respect them a lot. However, I find this particular iteration to be....well......less than flattering. The back looks good but the flares look like exactly what they are....someone else's idea, stolen then adapted. The car has enough bubble shapes, this just looks like warts. But hey, cutting a factory fender and tacking on fugly plastic is a hell of a lot cheaper than creating an entire wide-body panel. I would personally prefer a smaller wheel/fatter tire combo on this but forgiving the fenders, its a pretty damn good looking car.
@PhatRainbows @DaveCaff Thats it. If I ever redo my interior, I'm making custom wood. It must smell heavenly in there.

@Taryn Croucher @Sir Rob How about a long-deserved interview with her, Muldowney and Hertgen?
4 months, 1 week ago on Banishing The Female Car Enthusiast
@Fabrik8 We're not done yet! There's still a Rocket Bunny Civic EK Hatch kit, a Rocket Bunny Mini Cooper Kit, a Liberty Walk Peugeot 505 Wagon kit, and best of all, a totally different KM4SH! Kia Sedona kit either in production or already shot and ready to go live when they feel the tide has ebbed.
This article was a meh, only-for-a-reaction piece. It doesn't really achieve anything, and I am curious as to why only hot girls are shown with their cars? It it to point out the hypocrisy thats being spoken of? If not, where is the curvy girl? The odd-shaped one? Why not a picture of Claudia Hertgen when she drove with your very own Edward Sandstrom?
You cast light on something that you do yourselves in many articles. Someone else mentioned that NONE of the photos of men's cars show the owner. Yet on a proportion, how many pictures of women's cars have you done that show them? Granted, the photo quality itself is always great, and the women aren't draped across the hood wearing only a cleverly-placed decal and a smile, but regardless, the statement is always made, repeated, then featured in a photo that (I guess) the owner is, yes, really a woman.
How about this....if SH is serious, how about on the next couple of features of female-owned cars NOT mention anything in the article about it. Let someone ask in the comments if they deem its necessary. Why? Because it doesn't matter what gender the owner is when I'm looking at an article of a car. Not one single bit. Yes I want more women involved, but truly treat them as an accepted equal automotive enthusiast.
@Beany A big start would be not booking the models and the bikini contests etc at car events. Yes it may have been neat to see when I was 18 but personally I try to avoid them nowadays. Even more so since I had a daughter. They do nothing for the car scene and perpetuate a very bad stereotype. But I'm that rare guy I guess, that goes to car events to pay attention to cars.
Shirley Muldowney and Michel Mouton. All that needs to be said about female empowerment!
That being said, we need to break girls of the superficial lifestyle they are raised on nowadays.
@jcali No he didn't. It wasn't even close. Aasbo worked his A$$ off all season long to come from behind. He fell JUST short. Nobody got robbed, jobbed or screwed. But from the cheer in the stands, you'd think he DID win it all when he beat Forsberg. Unfortunately, Saito was still waiting.

@K's @D1RGE EXE @zziro when the OP downgraded to saying the car was dumb and the Ken Block insults thats where I detected the root of his protest. It's called reading between the lines.
The OP's post just sounded pissy. I was just poking him.

5 months ago on One Pissed Off Bat:</br> The LB Works Murciélago
@AbdHadieHR Because on SH, they would even feature a TRA/Kyoto Vespa and send a video crew, 2 photogs and write 5 articles on it. I know I am tired of it because I "got" where they were coming from/going to after their first car, and saw how they could apply that style to almost anything. Lo! and behold, we were treated to each and every LB/TRA car like it was the birth of a new era. Its feeling rammed down our throats now.
@speedhunters_dino @D1RGE EXE I disagree Dino. You guys have jumped completely in bed with Kato and Miura and if you tally how many features you've done on them, its vastly more than any other body kit maker anywhere. And its just a bodykit maker.
Please don't get me wrong, I do like the style, but I would rather see progression from them instead of same-old, same-old. Arches, Aero, paint, wheels, done. Other than putting the same kit on a bunch of different cars, where is the progression? And I'm not talking going from reverse-swan-neck wing stays to duckbill spoilers. I mean, when will they team up with a real motorsports powerhouse and do a FIA GT kit? Team with AMG or M/// or something and run a car at the green hell....ANYTHING!?!?!
Speedhunters, can we take like, a 3 month break from Liberty Walk/TRA Kyoto?Rocket Bunny overfenders on everything? Its been 3 years of oversaturation now. Just because they keep doing different cars the exact same way doesn't mean we need a "Groundbreaking!" article and subsequent articles trumpeting it each and every week. It's jumped the shark and headed for meme territory.
