I need to wander in here more often. :3 Yep, mine's in the process of self-grenading right now. It should have 170 hp, but it's an ?berdurpy gutless turd at the moment, so...yeeeeaaaahhh nooooo. The leaky exhaust manifold probably doesn't help, but the engine's going to die before I even graduate, so I can't really see the point in putting any money into fixing it.
The V6 version of this car supposedly isn't a }*%! lemon, but the fourbanger is simply unforgivable.
SourceHelicopter crashes on Pikes Peak during filming

(CNN) -- A helicopter carrying four people crashed Friday morning on Colorado's Pikes Peak, authorities said.
Rescue crews took one person to the hospital by helicopter and three others by ambulance, but their conditions were not immediately known, said Teresa Murphy of the El Paso County Sheriff's Department.
It was not clear what caused the crash, which happened in clear weather, she said.
The helicopter was filming a commercial for Audi, Murphy said. It went down around 7:30 a.m. about a mile below the 14,110-foot summit, said Lt. Lari Sevene.
In a statement, Audi said the crew was filming a test run of the "Autonomous Audi TTS Pikes Peak," a program among Audi, the Electronic Research Laboratory in Palo Alto, California, and Stanford University.
Its goal involves driving up Pikes Peak without a driver behind the wheel "to demonstrate the capabilities of advanced driver assistance systems and GPS," the statement said.
The car was not involved in the incident.
The research activities on Pikes Peak have been suspended, it said.
From what I've heard, the pilot is in stable condition and the three passangers should be soon released. Maybe they should have had an automated helicopter too? The car didn't crash, after all.
A spokesperson for Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs says all four passengers in the helicopter have been released.
The video appears to have been shot in Toronto. The Toronto Fan Expo was just on a couple of weeks ago. It's basically the Canadian version of Comic-Con.A stormtrooper? what? do they just walk around everywere in the states?
I thought that was a convention thing ........
I'm pretty sure that was shot at the Toronto International Film Festival. There was even a building with the "tiff" logo on it.
I hear this is one in this very form.Star Wars fans are every where. The ultra geeks in the suits/costumes are around more often than most peeps believe.
