  1. I know I'm bringing something that's from one and 1/2 years, but then maybe should help. About the said 'foamers', it's true that it's an annoying experience with them and so on, particularly if they just spend their time shadowing you wherever you post. The best way around is, you CAN JUST IGNORE THEM, by throwing the command 'ignore' on them, including blocking them from PMing you with their poisoning messages. Others will eventually see what those blockheads say, but then remember that once you give importance to what they say, you just fell right down to their ground scrapin
  2. That reminds me, the Trans-Pacific Partnership was meant as a way to reinforce copyright laws on the member countries, but personally I never believed that would have any significant impact. Another reminder to me, I think I still have my account, though the bottom line is that one can see my face, and the photos are almost all in the same few locations. Perhaps what could be stolen from there are those of a coach that's no more for quite some years now, the Neoplan N516 SHD Starliner, and there are practically nothing regarding these four units in their former selves.

  3. In the end this thread is completely useless and should either be deleted itself or locked... If one would like to leave and the only way to do it is through Admin action, guess the best is PMing an Admin. You should know better. xD

    In a nutshell, cars I own are a 4-inline 2011 BMW X1 and V6 2005 Mazda Tribute. Other cars I tested/drove during driving school, in chronological order: Honda Civic Type R FN2 (school) Toyota Vitz TRD Sport (school) Civic Type R FK2 (school) Civic Type R FK8 Ford Focus Carving Suzuki Swift (Sec Gen) Ferrari Portofino Toyota C-HR AT BMW Z4 M40i I have plans to try other cars, notably BMW M2 Competition, Alfa Romeo Giulia QV and Stelvio QV, Nissan R35 GT-R and Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Urus. I was very close to try Ferrari's 8
  5. Almighty monster performance Huracan Super Trofeo which is about to reemerge as the "Sena Kashiwazaki" Huracan Mega Trofeo, with a twin turbocharged, 1250hp V10 delivering raw power to the rears, neck-breaking power managed by only four technological performance marvels, three of them don't even exist IRL and would forever change the Elite performance car industry! One is the familiar ESP, while the others are the VAYCS (Variable Active Yaw Control System), Fusion Transmission (all-in-one transmission, if you'd like) and an inboard intelligent system simply called "Instinct" (detects road
  6. Make way for Nikko's most acclaimed 1/10 Street Cars Series. the Lamborghini HURACAN Super Trofeo!! ^^ Strongest point: it's actually faster than the announced 10-12kmph, and is very light for the size. Lowest points: has no working lights whatsoever, and some parts look a bit fragile. Price tag: $114.76 in today's currency (converted from CHF114.-). Right now, I am customizing it to become an Itasha like the「EMT」Super Aventador. I may also try to find out how to install working lights, even including directional/warning lights. and a RGB LED band circuit for the underside. Hope
  7. Indeed, the Dubai Police is notorious for owning quite a bundle of hypercars in their arsenal... Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Ford Mustang, Maserati, Nissan GT-R, you name it... Would like them to go even more hardcore and commission high end race cars, such as the Huracan Super Trofeo or a higher class NASCAR though, I think it would give out a VERY interesting chase even to the most current supercars around.
  8. That looks quite appetizing. ^^ Wish there could be some Japanese highway buses too, notably AeroAce, AeroQueen and AeroKing, and S'elega HD/SHD.. I found Tekken 4, Super Bust-a-Move and God of War, all PS2. I'm considering buying a secondhand PS3 for $55 from the store where I got these games.

    I agree. When I heard Mitsubishi was bringing the Eclipse back, I was actually quite enthusiastic, but when I saw something so differe at the GIMS, I was completely deceived. And yes, Mitsubishi is falling down, and their involvement on irregular emissions control like VW has contributed a lot for the cascade effect. As for Doppelkupplung, I partially disagree on the "SUV not being a real sports car due to their weight"; my X1 has quite a wide body and relatively low centre of gravity, plus it's four-inline 177hp diesel packs up quite a punch, and believe me, I compare this with the thre

    I don't get fooled, those wings and effects are really mostly for aerodynamics improvements, as Honda's wind tunnel simulations have shown. Some parts however, are just show-off, and that's the only thing that ticks me off a bit. About the C-HR, well yes, I prefer it's predecessor, the RSC, but again, I'm enjoying the C-HR's design too, so I guess I just have a taste for futuristic looking designs whatsoever. That's no hard time you are giving to me, that's really nothing. xD

    I don't mind what you say, but no need to put it into larger and bolder... ^^; In other words, there are cars for all tastes, and - sorry to disappoint you - I totally disagree: the Civic Type R in my opinion just got better and better, beyond starting to use more aerodynamics to increase in stability, and the development of a suspension exclusively to eliminate most (if not all) of the torque steer problem on a car with such amount of power. Must say however, that the car is getting already too large, "it has just maxed out in power (320hp) and especially in size", exactly what I told to

    No, I was referring to a kind of yaw control system which could allow you to adjust the torque between axles, even while in movement. That technology though, still needs tons of research before it can even be tested. ^^; I have a HW custom Odyssey and love it. In fact and as you probably noticed, I'm a huge Honda fan, but if you would go by a car of that kind, I have a bigger penchant for the Stream, 1990's Accord wagon, or Civic FK2 wagon. Other three good choices are the Previa, Impreza WRX STI SW and a very rare one, the Stagea RS 4S. Yes indeed, how we drive is what will dictate

    Careful, it's not all about flashy, but rather aerodynamics. I'd certainly liked if a certain kind of 'technology' - Variable Active Yaw Control System - could exist already, with which you could control the torque to either of the axles without requiring a garage to do the job. That means you could have a Civic Type R for FWD comfort cruise, 4WD stability racing, or even raw and violent RWD drifting sessions. But yes, certain details of the car - like the rear bumper's 'grilles' - are not functional at all, but for improving design, or like some uneducated folks prefer, "riced out" look

    I also made a test drive last week for a Civic Type R (FK8) run. Extreme in everything, especially response, ease to drive, basic controls distribution, among other features which dramatically improved since the FK2 (the one I passed my final exam with). In a more resumed way, it clearly exceeded all my expectations! ^^ It's a car I would really recommend, if you seek reliability, driving comfort, suspension that gives you confidence like no other, most needed controls right at your hand, and fast response and permanent "power drop-less" (VTEC is well known for these) in just one car!

    Finally acquired a car of my own, therefore liberating the BMW X1 back to my mother. A 2004 Mazda Tribute will now be my everyday car, that is until I can find a better job to buy my beloved 2018 Civic Type R! ^w^ Either way, I feel very lucky; I could end up with a bug-like car, while this one is is an extremely capable offroad car (I live in the mountains, for the record, and must go about 900m down in nearly 10km).
  16. Among my latest. Because I have a hardcore liking to Lamborghini, the latest cars have been Lamborghini in fact. One of them - the 1/43 Centennario - is actually the culprit of a big and frantic search to acquire it on that specific scale, all because Bburago first released it as an exclusive for the latest Forza Horizon game preorders. Now, after a one-year-long wait, Bburago had just released it into the market, though with different rims... 1/24 Maisto Custom Huracan 1/24 Bburago Aventador Super Veloce 1/43 Bburago Centennario 1/36 Kinsmart Huracan Super Trofeo &
  17. I recently acquired some PS2 games. Still, I give you a complete list of my PS2 games, separated by type. Burnout 3: Takedown Burnout: Revenge CMR III WRC II: Extreme GT3 A-Spec GT4 GT4 「Prologue」 GT Concept 「Tokyo-Geneva」 NFS: Pro Street NFS: Hot Pursuit II Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift Splashdown Cel Damage GTA SA GTA VC Stories Ratchet & Clank Ratchet & Clank 2: Going Commando LOTR: The Two Towers LOTR: Return of the King Tekken V I might sell some of these back, as I too am lacking time to play them; they were acquired at second hand stores

    For the first time after more than a year, the last time I passed my license, I drove a MT car all alone, while servicing for one of my bosses. And again, a Japanese car: a Mitsubishi Colt Z30, Kutani Red. A relatively fun and easy to drive five-speed utility, quite versatile, as I could witness multiple times while helping it's owner. Meanwhile, I am now looking for a good car under the equivalent of 1000 USD - many have pointed out the Subaru Justy or Cultus/Swift of the early 1990s as being very reliable, capable to beaten up for two decades and still rolling in snow like new. Or, i
  19. I actually have no wondering about it; the real concept is to stand out, be different from what you are used to see. They want you to recognize this bus wherever it goes, so the best way is to create something never seen before, never attempted before.
  20. Thanks very much!! (^ω^)
  21. Good evening. (^^) Is it possible any Admin to change my username for "Kashiwazaki", please? Thank you in advance.
  22. Anyone here has yacht and/or superyacht models?? I designed and built mine the same way as my highway buses, though I had to resort to a 3D program to make the yachts. Will show you guys what I did so far, as well as what I plan to make, later in the day. For now, two photos of the latest one, Oceanco's 117m long DP055「TITAN」which I named「SAINT CHRONICA」.
  23. Japan still operates Neoplans, many from the early 80's, and even had (the case it was now scrapped) a 1970s Neoplan Jubocruiser!... Now their numbers are kinda limited, with companies like Fuji Bus, Ecoro Japan, Hinomaru and of course, Sky Bus Tokyo, since Neoplan withdrew it's quarters in Japan in the early 2000s, since it was acquired by that damned MAN Group and it's engines, unadapted for use on buses, but brilliant on their trucks!... With the exception of one-third of the N516 Starliners they have, which are MAN powered, these Neoplans are Mercedes-Benz powered, so no wonder why you'd
  24. 8/10. Glad to see a Phantom, since I regard them as a "New Look" of the modern days. (^^)
  25. Most main South American companies acquired these in the past, notably El Condor, Valina, Urquiza, Plusmar, etc... At the least, the engine is well known for it's simplicity and high endurance, and the bus' shape may otherwise avoid the people inside to get crushed in the case it rolls over, unlike square-shaped buses.
