    The "New Toys" Thread

    Got a Thrustmaster T80 (boo no force feedback, but still better then a controller). Someday I'll justify spending 400+$ on a nice wheel and pedals... someday... Pedals are, well, bad, that's the only word for them. The wheel is actually surprisingly nice, if it had force feedback I'd have...

    2015 Australian GP.

    Not true, it's mostly just aero tricks. They've also changed the point system (for various reasons at various times). They've changed testing rules. They've tried to cap spending. They've banned active suspension (and the mass damper system). They've also banned the off-throttle engine...

    2015 Australian GP.

    While that is some amazing whining, I do see his point. Throughout the past few years the FIA continually changed the rules to stop 1 team from running away with the title and they have done nothing about Mercedes. I don't agree with him (frankly the teams should be allowed to develop their...

    Finally got around to building a new gaming rig, last one was built in early 2008 (Q6600 based system). Currently any PC games were being played on a laptop, so OC'ing, 4k, etc are not a priority, nor will they for awhile. ASRock Z97 Extreme 4 Core i5-4590 Asus Strix GTX 970 (blah blah...

    Lens Flair

    Another from the Scotties. Not the greatest photo, but it's incredibly hard to get a picture of her smiling (even in promotional material she barely smiles) Rachel Homan, Team Canada

    Forum-wide survey: How oomphy is your ride?

    2014 Mazda CX-5 GT I4 - 2.5L - 137kW - 1555kg If only I still owned my Saturn... nothing like a factory supercharged 2L (with factory stage 2 upgrade), 190kW (at the wheels) engine in a ~1200kg vehicle... God I miss that vehicle

    Your Camera Equipment

    It was a tough choice to actually get it. I wanted to upgrade from my D60 badly, it just didn't suite what I needed anymore. Originally I was looking at the D5x00 series as the D7100 was out of my "acceptable" price range, but then they had to put a sale on it to drop it under my price point...

    Your Camera Equipment

    Upgraded from my D60 to a D7100 thanks to Boxing Day sales (couple weeks late posting, admittedly). Also got myself two 32GB SD cards that can keep up with the shooting speed compared to my old, slow 16GB cards which.. were still faster then the D60... And time for the classic cell phone...

    Game: Driveclub

    Only played it for a little bit since I've gotten it, so far I'm enjoying it. Is it a great game? Not in my opinion. Is it a good enough game to hold me over as far as a driving game goes for awhile. The point system is a bit screwy though.. I mean, I get rear-ended and lose points, that's...

    Any Golfers Around

    Last couple of years I haven't been able to golf a lot the past couple of years (past 2 years I've gone a total of 3 times). 4-5 months of golfing weather + the cost. Trying to go more often now that I can afford to. Taylormade SLDR 9.5* (lofted up to 11*) driver Nike SQ Sumo 3-wood Knight...

    Any Golfers Around

    Just wondering how many avid or part-time golfers we have here I'd like to golf more, but winter here sort of makes the season about 5 months long

    The Weather Thread

    While I do kind of feel bad for those in cold weather, on the other hand I laugh and say "Welcome to my world" lol... 2 feet of snow, followed by 55kph winds with the next day having a day time high -48C with the windchill, and an overnight low getting close to -60C with the wind. No schools...

    The Weather Thread

    While here we haven't had any destructive weather by any means, Monday morning was a crisp -35C (-31F) with the windchill pushing it to -50C. Then, as is the norm here in that our temp varies wildly, today was a beautiful -2C...

    Cloudy skys are the norm in this part of the woods. Flat land, great as you can see for miles. Bad, because a "calm" day has 10kph of wind haha
