Cars and Video games. I write about them, I take pictures of them, I film them. I like to dream, right between my sound machine.
@Speedhunters_Bryn @majik16106 Just dont get too lost in shiny. thats the big mistake everyone makes. The internet, and youtube, prove over and over and over again that content matters much more than dressing it up. big effects, heavily edited video.. wont matter. Car guys are simple, get someone believable as a host, make sure he/she has his/her facts straight and can talk to people, Get a good mic for sound. The occasional slo-mo is ok, dont over do it. IT doesnt have to be flashy.. the stuff car guys are looking for.. doesnt require hours and hours of editing.

I have been trying to pitch Speedhunters.tv for.. i dunno.. years. I mention it from time to time. I think it absolutely the next thing you guys should be doing. website/youtube channel. All you need is a host who can travel from site to site, hook up with the editors at shows and film some quick spots. an episode every two weeks or so. Some coverage, some test drive, some how-to. Let me know when to send in a video resume. :)

Missed you guys! heard you had fun at M&L. Please tell me someone got pics of the F12. I took a few. Nothing but wheels.. but that car is seriously pretty. I can imagine what features are coming. Pretty good show this year. Looking forward to see what you choose to show.

@roryfjohnston HAHA. You need to change your Avatar. I bet you'd go nuts for this sort of thing.

@O4ABDA @speedhunters_dino @majik16106 Yup. Like I said, definitely what I feel is my biggest weakness. I think its because of how I think about braking zones. Im so focused on getting down to proper entry speeds that I forget what to do when I lift off the brake. Maybe. Just practice I'm sure.
@speedhunters_dino @majik16106 I'd give it credit. Sounds better than a lot of other words I have heard instructors invent. lol
Awesome story. My problem has and always will probably be releasing the brakes. I mean, i can always improve in other areas but that is BY FAR where I have the most problem. My brain just cant seem to let my feet ease off the brakes when going into acceleration. Looks like an awesome experience though. Now I want to get back on track!
One Question: Since its a theme of inspiration.. are we just describing the photo/photos in general like a normal IATS submission or should we write a bit more about how we are inspired given this competition?

Couldn't give us one more week to get some pics at the Osaka Auto Messe could ya? Guess its my big chance. I look forward to the challenge.
@speedhunters_dino @majik16106 Interesting. I think whatever was going on at Okayama was more mechanical but it may have been suspension stuff. I dont think it was tires heating though.. as it was raining at Okayama that day. lol. Maybe they are just having some trouble getting the suspension dialed in all together.

@wheatgod Yah Tarzan had it on the track for a few laps at Okayama, it came in, went back out for a lap, then parked. Maybe it was just doing shakedown stuff. Not sure. It spent a lot of time on the jackstands. It and the Kakimoto NSX were side by side in the garages. Was really awesome to see them side by side.
I saw this car a few weeks ago. Was really awesome. If i remember right it was having a few problems. But very cool.
@MartinHsson @Simply P 9 bar is 130psi. The S4 engine was tested in lab once for strength at up to 5 bar (70ish psi) to make around 1000hp but in race trim the S4 saw 2.2bar or 32psi.

@MPistol I know you made this post awhile ago. But consider that you are speaking about the home of Audi. Sure they have access to a bit more stuff in Europe where it was a stronger market for the car.. but also this is a Gatebil car. So its a "shining" example of a build. There are not cars like this driving all over Europe. Its rare, in the world, period. Consider also the flipside. I know some guys who race American Iron in Europe and they always complain that we have the best muscle car stuff. Happens here in Japan too. They always look to Hot Rod and what we do in the states for newest and coolest in muscle car builds. The great thing about car culture is its like cooking.. each area has a specialty and they tend to do it "best". Everyonce in awhile a foreigner nails it and thats pretty special. Japan has some decent cheeseburgers.. but if I want a real one.. i go home to Georgia.. and vice versa. The US has some pretty cool import builds.. supras and such.. but if I want the "best of the best" I go to Japan.

Rally month... posts by me incoming! Can't wait!
I know I pick my spots to post but you guys have really done a number with the recent Audi coverage. It's fantastic. Not the most popular platform in the US and almost impossible to find here in Japan. Seeing this one and the white race car a few weeks ago.. feels like being punched in the stomach. Its awesome and knowing how difficult it is to find and build one where I live.. it hurts. I love it though.. great work.

I only come out of hiding for Super Gt coverage and the Gt300 BRZ. well thats not true.. but close. I got some great pictures of it at Suzuka earlier this year. I love this years cars. Thanks for the pit pictures.. the pass was too much at the time for me. At suzuka they had this cool little display out front with a "fake" BRZ car and the engine on a stand out in front. Really cool.
