    Last year I started playing racing games after years and years of video game ignorance. Holy crap guys, the future is here. I ended up with a new PC and a stupid-looking chair with a car's control set sprouting from it. Dorky as; but this all costs far less than two fly-in Chump or Lemons races, and you can use it whenever you damn well please. For someone who can rarely afford an actual race weekend or trackday, sitting in your living room in race driving position, with convincing controls, looking at the inside of a photorealistic car, driving around a photorealistic circuit or rally stage is remarkably addictive. There are games which have become good enough to actually help refine an understanding of driving quickly, without any danger; whether that's ideal is a worthwhile discussion but I'm having too much fun with this stuff to think about that.

      @Athos Nobile I've seen what it'll do... :) It can be a bit tricky to accessorize, though, as you have to worry about things breaking / falling off if they're not mounted securely. This isn't like one of those d-box things where you have to set a glass of water on it to tell whether it's doing anything... ;)

    300 SRT - to steal some phrases that were applied to Buick back in the 50s and 60s. "Banker's Hot Rod" "Go Fast With Class." (Since those were never official slogans I encourage Chrysler to appropriate them.)

    They could slap the Amarok name on all kinds of stuff for the sake of preserving the trademark. It doesn't need to be a vehicle.

    @Mark Stevenson, Playing the populist I see. Next you will be a politician. This does wonders for the truth. What this site about, again?
