    go into user CP (control panel, not child porn). access it through the button on the top left of the page. you'll figure it out from there

    Touge bores the crap out of me but so does hill climbs, supersprints and rally, anything against a stopwatch were there is no racing or racecraft shown bores me to tears.

    hill climbs can be scary, being 3 inches from the trees and the like.

    This video is the epitomy of what I dislike. It makes me want to throw my laptop at my dog.
    Yeah... I suppose you love supercars...


    And that was quite of an irritating video, wouldn't want to see that again...

    BTW... instead of throwing your laptop to your dog... just could just give it to me... I might need it...

    and yet, generally, look how poorly race drivers are at trying these events

    DIfferent kind of "craft".
    Racing adds overtaking, but the driver gets many MANY chances to get a corner right, change gear at the best time, brake at the last moment and finesse the laps.
    The rest get ONE chance to get it right. ANd getting it wrong doesn't offer lots of gravel or run-off areas. Most of the time it hurts

    matra do you do a lot of hillclimbs? seems like the sort of track that'd be popular over there (for the same reasons the ones here get so much use)

    Whats the problem?? I said watching hillclimbs etc bores me..... where did I say that circuit guys are faster or better than hilclimbers etc

    If someone can drive a car fast they will be fast everywhere no matter what format if you have good car control and big enough balls it doesnt matter if its circuit, sprint, hillclimb, etc fast guys will be fast anywhere.

    hill climbs can be scary, being 3 inches from the trees and the like.
    Definetley would be scary, thats why I wont do it I'll stick to as Matra says lots of run off and sandtraps and leave the other stuff to the real men

    Sorry was just pointing otu that the skill that we watch for is higher and more focussed. Guess it depends on what you watch motorposrt for. The NASCAR bunching/overtaking and crashes or the driver/vehicle skills.
    If someone can drive a car fast they will be fast everywhere no matter what format
    No. Race drivers are fast because they can "tune in" to the fastest lap.
    They go through the same corner 15-30 times at club racing level. So being able to remember and compare positioning is key. Add to that draughting, timing overtake and defending overtake and you have a skill set that fits track well and doesn't come anywhere near the needs of a rally driver for example.
    if you have good car control and big enough balls it doesnt matter if its circuit, sprint, hillclimb, etc fast guys will be fast anywhere.
    "fast" yes .. .competitive definately NO guarantee.
    As I said, look how few manage to make the transition

    -> I prefer Japanese Touge than Circuit Racing. I would think that Touge is more thrilling and fun than on traditional Circuit Track. Why? Every car has a chance on a Togue track, especially with proper tuning and modifications. There's not much pure straight-aways that many super-powerful, super-fast super/hyper cars that will keep you staying at the back of the pack while driving a highly respectable car like the new 370Z. It would be pretty embarrasing for a moderately tuned Forester 2.5XT to be able to keep up with a 430 Scuderia.

    Anything outside of that is fine by me. Obviously these are all stereotypes that I've inflated but it annoys me. The same way dumb Americans probably annoy Europeans.
    ^ Wow, everthing that you hate are the ones that I love...

    - I listen to JPop and Anime OSTs.
    - I watch Anime.
    - I read Manga.
    - I draw them too.
    - I think drifting is a method of exhibiting drivers skill.
    - I drive a Honda. (S2000)
    - And I'm not Japanese, I'm a Filipino.

    ...well I guess its a matter of personal preference.

    I am also a Filipino and I don't like touge...

    For some car enthusiast, tuning too much only ruins a car.

    So, a tuned Subaru or Nissan may be able to keep up or pass the performance of a Ferrari 430 Scuderia, but trust me, it's nowhere near as exciting to drive...

    In a car, you just don't look at it's performance, if you drive cars like Alfa Romeo, you look at its shape, listen to the sound it makes, nd you wouldn't care if it's not one of the fastest cars in the world. All you would only care about is the way and how it feels to drive it.

    BTW... tuning a car is not bad... It's only when you exceed an amount of tuning is when you really ruin the car...

    I like the touge races because they have that extra bit of excitement about them. You're racing on a public road for one, and generally there's more changes in elevation too. Also since is a nose to tail race, and no 'laps' one mistake could be the match.

    Also circuit races that go round and round can get boring to watch.

    Damn all those videos games have shortened my attention span...
