Of course. Probably no budget for reshoot. Back when every car exploded.

Iím more interested how many Blazer were need to doing the stunt. Pretty sure the tires get popped off rims during the crunch, but keeps driving like nothing. I was trying to see if damage carried over to next scene

overall its a good film sequence. Be 3/4 CGI now days.

I bought a new USB flash drive. This one is USB 3.0. Fantastic read speeds! Terrible write speeds. Yeah, that's a good compromise, because a brand-new USB flash drive is definitely going to be pre-loaded with all the data I need to transfer, so I don't have to sit around for hours waiting for my computer to finish copying files onto it.

I should go back to my USB 2.0 flash drive. At least its performance was reliable. I've come to the conclusion that USB flash drives just can't keep up with the speed offered by USB 3.0. To get USB 3.0 speeds, you have to use an external hard drive or SSD, which is bigger and costs more. Oh well.

Lol, fyrstormer done straight roasted st dragn wagen....


Today I had to break the bad news to the boss regarding the new job... he was shocked to say the least....
Which in a way allows me to plan for my trip... I'm kinda tempted to go the cheap and lazy way and go to legoland Malaysia... but it might be too full of kids....

I also discovered that TOP racing spurs are just repackaged Kimbrough spurs. Not even rebranded. Just repackaged.

well when you watch as much adult content as i do your threshold is pretty up there lately i find myself watching it for the plot. wondering, is this guy actually a plumber? i mean i can clearly see he can lay pipe, but he never did fix that sink. this guy must have some pretty crappy yelp reviews. "so he showed up on time. i had to assist in getting out his snake which had me questioning his qualifications, but once in position he reamed my drain to satisfaction. but when he left my sink still doesn't work" 2.5 stars

So now the focus only has one strap holding the fuel tank in place, and it's condition isn't great. Probably not safe to drive at this point.

This morning I had to deal with an entitled kid and mother, kinda annoyed. Other then that got some parts that I ordered for my mst fxx-d. New 7.5t motor, another plastic chassis( I have the carbon fiber chassis and use it when on display but I find myself using this chassis a lot in asphalt and carbon on asphalt is a waste for drift), new springs (trying out a stiffer setup) short Yokomo brand ones for the front and Tamiya TRF ones for the rear. It is hard to think how much I put into this chassis since I got it, this was the original for sale thread of it Link. Now the motor on it cost more than it originally did. Here it is waiting for me to solder the new motor.

The little xray shock upfront gets quite the laugh out of people. This chassis has been a bit interesting to drive compared to my other Cs chassis and I keep adding power to it I started out with a 13.5t now down to 7.5t. To use it with RWD chassis I have to really tone it down. For other Cs, I have to watch out how much angle I put it in since it does have a higher angle than most Cs I have seen. Soon I may have to order a new Subaru body for it last event it got hit by another chassis pretty hard, was also considering an r32 body.
