Hey, someone else that played Tokyo Xtreme Racer!

Yeah, that game had a huge influence on me. When I got bored on TXR3, I would actually take the time and read all the car descriptions. Then I took it a level further, went to the internet, and learned a crapload.

I found it very fun tuning my car and trying to perfect my gear ratios to have excellent acceleration and top speed. The tuning part was a huge thing for me. I literally spent hours changing suspension settings and most especially the transmission gear ratios.

Nowadays, I have a good general knowledge about cars. Yay for interwebs.

Everything you just said remind me of Forza3 haha. Everything to make your car perfect for drag, drift, or circuit runs.

True, Thank god for the internet. Without it, its either we learn it from a friend,shop,parental or ect. haha.

I was 12, and in hospital after my appendix exploded.

My dad picked me up a mini-truck magazine...

I started buying off-road mags after that.

My dad is a car mechanicer, so i'm there often and watch the cars. I've seen many car movies.



This is a car i would have some day, a Mustang G.T

i had a lot of hot wheels. mom didnt want to buy any more toys after my bro.
plus my dad has a 61 buick lesabre and 64 impala sitting in the garage.

I hate japanese cars, though. They're unreliable. i only like 3000gt vr-4 which can blow any supra anyday by its wider 3rd gear ratio and still not appear in any movies, except the Stray because of its drivetrain type.

That's purely opinion.

But I do agree, VR-4 are damn nice. Finding one is like a unicorn though.

My bullshit meter has detected something

Any car will be unreliable if you do not maintain it properly. Even some of the most reliable cars can go bad if not properly maintained...

i have always been into car, or anything that moved. i grew up in a fmaily that did a lot of road tripping, so i naturally got used to being in a car, looking out the window at other cars. i do rember being little and seeing the concept plymoth prowler. it was too much, i needed new oants after that. jk I also was a huge fan of the old knightrider series, i had model car and hotwheels everywhere, i was destened to be a car nut



and also my first memory is riding in my uncles white drop top RX-7, i still think the 2nd gen rx7 vert is the coolest car. ever

The car hobby is dying. It won't die completely, but I'm sure all this tree-hugging crap is reducing the proportion of car enthusiasts, hence less people understand cars.


Since you know so much, do you know much about the cutting-edge technology that's been coming out? Like direct-injection engines and such?
