its fun for sure!
I broke down and bought a lotus then hated it so I uninstalled the game and re-installed it so I could start over again lol.

when you start needing more rep (to beat the bosses) do the race online thing. you just race recorded runs of other cars that are the same level as you.
I haven't lost one yet in the clio thats pushing the edge of level2 limits

Just did a little bit of research. And it sounds like as long as everything matches up (ie engine code, trans blah blah) it sounds like you just need to get it everything programmed correctly immo wise so the cluster and key and ecu all play nice.

Race is June 13th (it's a monday... just fyi) And if you dual drive your car your going to need to be in 2 different classes (there are usually 4).

Also you will need a helmet SA05 or greater rating. I need to buy me a new helmet as mine is only SA00.

he said so on his status, so since i read it on the internet it must be real :P

he's still TOTALLY butthurt and jealous of the benz. but i give not a single . i think he assumes that i do and thats why he's so keen on making sure he acts like it's nothing special. :P

not to get off topic.. but have any of you guys done your brakes yourself? i need to put on new pads and rotors and im not an idiot when it comes to car work so id like to do it myself. And also my grandpa builds cars so i know if i needed help i could easily get it.

I was just wondering if any of you had experience changing out the pads and rotors yourself and if so how easy was it?

We've replaced engines transmissions and installed turbos/superchargers/v6's into the focus.

brakes are a cakewalk
