I loves my rc likes I loves my cars.

Same here, however I don't have a ton of experience flying, just my share of aviation knowledge/experience and a particular interest in planes.

I don't want to go too far off topic, but I have an Airfield 4ch Piper J3 (55" wingspan) and a 3ch Taylorcraft I built out of balsa sticks (40" wingspan, plans by Pat Tritle), both connected to my Dx6i. The Taylorcraft's airframe is unbelievably light at only 7oz, but that's without any electronics.

Here's my precious , ain't she beautiful?

This here is my old ride,first one I ever got. She'll always be special.

Nahhh Those don't perform that well, especially in traffic. Used to drive one since high school and had so many breakdowns. Even installed a sound system and custom radio but eventually traded it in.

Wanted to get me one of these but apparently they're illegal and outlawed all the companies selling them.

Such a shame! See the engine is even replaced with a fake in this demo model. I wonder what the ethical problems was with this?

Thats actually the only plane I have, not to many open areas around here to fly. My huge collection of helis and quadcopters though, you can basically fly those anywhere. Along side of my short course trucks, rock crawlers, and touring cars. Plenty of dirt tracks, rocks, and asphalt for the ground vehicles. Maybe when I move I'll get a real nice plane and find a big open park with no fucking trees to fly in. :)



Also Rekel, I just noticed you had an 88 supra. Fuck yeah, I had an 87 supra before I got my Porsche. Had to sell her because parts were getting baron. She had a good 11 years on the road with me though. Talk about sleeper cars, holy shit.

Could be any number of things. My old supra had it on and the cause was the gas cap door senser died lol.

it smells like dust and moon light
'91 MR2 turbo, same as always.

Keeping the stock look on the outside, inside it is anything but. I don't want to bore you all with details, but pretty much everything apart from the longblock isn't stock at the moment.

Going to overhaul the entire suspension geometry soon with a complete kit once I find a decent set of sway bars and a set of wheels that will clear the roll center adjusters without looking like absolute shit. Currently it's just on kyb coilovers.

One of these is mine, in that lovely yellow colour too, which is in no way linked to Echo being yellow. It's great, if only a mechanic could find out why the check engine light has been on for the past 5 years...

quit taking it to shitty mechanics... if an engine light is on. Its sending a code any decent mechanic should be able to read, reset, or fix the problem causing that code.

Am a bit of a car freak. My grocery-getter/take-the-dogs-to-the-park-and-vetter utility car is a 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid.

http://www.furaffinity.net/view/14096719/

is my "fun" car. 2005 E46 M3 ZCP (Competition Package), 6-speed manual, stock.

Though I do miss my old ride...

2006 Porsche 911 C2S (6-speed manual, as well)

which was replaced by this:

2010 Porsche Cayenne GTS DE3 - which I hated and only kept for 2 years before ditching it for the hybrid and the M3.

And I don't wanna seem like I'm bragging - I just love any car-related thread. I can confidently say, after having that Cayenne GTS, I became a bit anti-car and could not stand how much money I was wasting (I ran some numbers and concluded that Cayenne cost me about $4 per mile driven). So I decided I'd never buy new again, would only buy used, and keep things more reasonable and sensible. And now I sound like my father.

Agreed. I got it after the 911, so the entire experience of owning it was pure let down. All I ever thought while driving it was "This is not fun".

Goodness, yes. I loved that car even though it had so much shit wrong with it (cracked dash, ripped steering wheel, bad buttons, shitty carpet, etc. etc.). It was also a stick, which I really miss. I just wish it was a turbo model. :/ I have to admit, though, that car didn't come close to punching as hard as my Camaro does. The Supra was kinda more fun to drive around corners and such, but the Camaro kicks so much more ass with its power, it's crazy.

Here are some pictures of my Supra. It didn't have any visual upgrades like the Camaro, but it didn't look bad. Sold for $1200, which is pretty good considering it couldn't drive.

There's really no substitute for a stick, IMO. I get everyone has different tastes - for straight line speed it's hard to beat some of the new systems out there (like Porsche's PDK and other double clutch or even "manual w/ paddle shift" options). For certain people, the prospect of having to work a stick shift in and out of corners is also less than appealing. I just have a difficult time driving a performance car that doesn't have a stick and clutch and let me go through those motions. Sadly, they're a dying breed nowadays. Even a majority of 997 Porsches (previous model) were sticks, but it's nearly impossible to find em nowadays with 991 and some models don't even offer the option, anymore. I guess I need to quit being a stubborn old-fashioned furry locked in the past and accept it hehe.

Still not at 10k posts
I would post a photo here, but she doesn't like me doing that without her permission, especially the ones when I'm actually in her :V
