    Drove back to Miami from Daytona Beach. Went to the Turkey Run and had a great time. I took my 944 Turbo and was able to open her up a couple of time. I love the scream of my 16v but can't deny my love for the 944's kick when the turpo spools up.

    I just finished installing the sway bar, rear calipers and rotors. Had to cut the dust shields of course, then cut about an inch off each end of the sway bar too of course... Its awesome! Took me about 50-55 minutes to do. Handles sooo much better

    its a pain... but life could be worse hehe

    I've already started to re-download all the top gear and clarkson!

    Estimated time left.... 99:99:99 hours:crazy1:

    Fifth Gear i won't even bother... and the other 30gigs... i'll have to re-download as well! It'll take some time, but those films were priceless...

    Watching Senna going around Monaco on a big screen is something to behold..

    yeah i am, from the Final Gear website and clarkson from ninjavideo

    Fifth Gear... i enjoyed like the first 3-4 years when it was Tiff Needle and Jason Plato... once they brought in those 2 idiots on the couch it all went downhill..

    Couple must own car documentaries though are:
    Victory by Design
    Secret world of Formula 1
    Senna doc
    Schumi doc
    Porsche, complete history

    and MANY more... if anybody wants i'll post the names as i re-download them... in about a month it should be a pretty big list

    Just went over to CLUB202.com and it is dead! I haven't been there in a while and I'm glad I haven't. 190rev members are so much better. Ever since I got my 190 16v, I feel right at home here :)

    Flew twice today and got some sun above the low overcast. Fought another jet, pulled some legit G's, and have a sore back and some "G measles" to show for it :)

    All in all a good day!

    thats pretty cool. i used to intern at our small local airport and there is a guy who owns a de-militarized mig fighter jet. i got to ride in it once, right after we did inspection, that was one of the most incredible experiences.
    that was a great internship too, i used to get to drag the benz down the runway, and i got to taxi jack roush to martinsville speedway (which is about 20 minutes away) from the airport in a roush ford fusion. that was another great experience.

    That's pretty awesome, I'd love to strap on a MIG someday for a ride. Taking a jet up for a total joyride would be awesome....have done lots of stuff in them so far, but taking one up and doing whatever you want for an hour or so and just burning jet A without a "mission".....not too many chances to do that on the military side. Sounds like a lot of fun!
