  1. It is indeed. I'm starting to realise i'm not as difficult to find online as I thought... 😂
  2. This makes waaaaaay more sense... i'll just excuse myself from this thread.
  3. I use Forza for this question. If you have an xbox it's worth it just so you can check the styles of wheels you want... But my two cents for a silver car is: White 19" TEs White LMGT1s Gold BBS "Split Spokes" Also don't underestimate how good R34 GTR rims looks on 33s.
  4. Possible the car had a TV/DVD screen in it at some point. It may be using switched 12V from the column, and the handbrake sensor to know when it should turn the screen on/off. I can't think of a reason anyone would use the handbrake switch for any other reason. Not only that, no one in the world ever bother with these, and depending on the model, just hooked the look to ground or 12V permanently. Then it was up to the driver to not watch TV while driving.
  5. My wife and I took our cars out to a night meet at Docklands Costco (Cars and Coffee). It was absolutely packed. I had no idea how many cars would show up, turned out hundreds... It was a pretty good mix of cars, if they could just lose the people who show up in stock Commodores and Falcons with straight through exhausts it would be perfect. The GTRs got a lot of love while we were there, and the silver one picked up a very slight scratch in the rear bar (sigh). I'm sure it's only the clear top coat, but it's still annoying as hell. Anywho, pictures (not all mine btw):
  6. Awesome car mate, well done on the trade. Normally they don't turn out so well!
  7. Welcome back to the fold. You must have been OG! Cool that you've come back. I put my cars into a build thread: https://www.sau.com.au/forums/forum/190-projects-overhauls-and-build-ups/ I think I misuse them, but if you're doing actual work on the cars, you'll be right! I love wagons (a lot for someone without a stagea anyways) so I'll be following along enthusiastically.
  8. Good attitude man. Keep them coming no matter how slow! People who don't subscribe to this find their car in the fence after half a lap (and I'm told that's super expensive).
  9. Unacceptable!!! lol as a minimum. I've DM'd you Alex. Good to see you still at this. I really, really enjoy watching your videos. I already was watching people lap the ring, but it's super cool to see a 33 doing laps.
  10. Hi Douglas. Thanks for posting. Most people who suffer from Depression have anxiety in some way, shape or form, for me it was Flying, and being late to appointments (I really feel that time pressure in my life). I would consider a couple of steps that might help you out: Get out and about during the day (a walk at lunchtime or while on a call can help immensely). If possible walk to ride or walk to walk, even if it means just jumping off the train one station early (I understand that isn't always applicable though). Consider meditation/mindfulness activities that you can start. Yoga, meditation or anything that involves self reflection could help. Try to learn about anxiety and in particular attempt to identify how you can be triggered (even a basic understanding helps). Cut down on coffee. (This one was hard for me, i went from 3 double shots a day to one, at first I was sluggish and felt rough, but I got through it). Coffee in the morning isn't terrible but late coffee can affect your sleep pattern/quality. Also for me, overthinking things and playing out hypothetical situations was really bad. If you also do this, try to identify the chances of this happening (normally for me it was very low) and only apply the same amount of energy to that scenario as it's likelihood to becoming a reality. (Google Occam's Razor for more details on this one). There are some free apps and websites that might help you out: https://www.mindful.org/free-mindfulness-apps-worthy-of-your-attention/ http://understandinganxiety.wayahead.org.au/getting-help/helpful-websites/ It may still be worth consulting a psychologist as they have a neutral view of you and your thought pattern. For me this is a big bonus as my psychologist can point out when I am being too harsh on my self and help me to correct some of my thought patterns. If you can do just one of the things above (actions or use an app or see a psychologist) you might find you start to improve your mental well being. I've PM'd you as well. Let me know if I can be of assistance. All the best. Steve.
  11. It's the strangest thing. You expect a burbling V8 and instead... that RB powered sound. 🤔
