    I just got my permit, and sometimes you don't even know your speeding! It just feels like thats the speed you should be going. Unfortunatly the speed that I 'feel' is right is often 5-10 mph over the speed limit :/ I better learn how to drive slower...

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    You had to get done eventually cam just lucky it wasn't over 200k/h ;)

    I've got 6 demerits left thanks to my lack of judgement doing 141km/h in a 100km/h zone... :-/

    $360AUD fine too

    Yeah... and considering today I took a Toyota Soarer for a test drive today it's not a good thing really since these beasts have a top end speed of 300km/h.

    Decided not to buy - not what I expected.

    Soarer's in their native form are luxury cruisers. They are now known as the Lexus SC400.

    The V8 has power, but power for cruising with ease. The V8 also only comes in Automatic flavor for this reason.

    The TT has more power than the V8. They are also extremely responsive to modifications, easy to gain heaps of extra power. Coupled with a manual transmission they are a very quick cruising car.

    If you want quick, take a TT supra for a spin :D

    Go check out Sports and Luxury cars in Ferntree Gully.

    Craig Dean is the manager and races in Targa in his Supra and Supercharged V8 soarer.

    Decent bloke that knows what his stuff :thumb:

    Supra TT and Soarer have the same engine, right?
    BTW Drift Kning also races the Soarer. A nice sight in a place full of AT86 (toyota corolla) and Silvias.

    Nope

    The Supra TT has the 2JZ-GTE 3.0 Litre 6cyl DOHC Twin Turbo
    The Soarer TT has the 1JZ-GTE 2.5 Litre 6cyl DOHC Twin Turbo

    The 2JZ is a very nice engine, capable of some serious power.

    As with most cars, in stock form they are fairly sedate compared to what they can really do with a bit of work :)
