I'm sure it'll be fun. But yeah, track days take a toll on the car. Lots of heat to get rid of, lots of brake pads & tyres to replace
My track toy is a Toyota 86. It needed a bit of attention before tracking, too, even though it was only a year old at the start.

Bought myself a 1995 WRX with a twin turbo driveline and brakes from the 2001 Liberty B4. Has a few STi options and coil-overs. Not a bad little start for a track car but still some work to do. A bit of dyno tuning to get the lag out between turbos and upgrade the brakes to the STi Brembos. Should be a bit of fun a few times a year. Track days, motorkhanas and the like
That was cheap! Well, it'll cost a bit more on the long run anyway, hehe. Feel free to start a thread to share the project details, for one, I'd be happy to read it.
55", now we're talking...what monitor is that? I might just upgrade. 43" is getting smallYou are right it is a TV, I was just wondering what the refresh rate of OLED panels was compared to LCDs. I only recently bought a LG 55 4k 200hz TV to use as my monitor ( very happy with it overall) photo realistic graphics ,but I notice a bit of blur on occasion an OLED panel would stop that .
Well, there's a reason monitors and are sold separately, and not just marketing - altho this may change in the future.
Apparently TVs have lower requirements on the picture representation side. Side effects maybe ghosting, blurring, worse colour representation, cropping, etc...
I'd not use a telly as a monitor until this changes - but then I work at the computer all day.
You'd have a seizure sitting in front of my 22" monitors Bird.
Yeah, occasionally I have to work from my 17" lappy - man it feels bad!

Edit: wait, that's probaly a telly, not a monitor, correct? I mean having "netflix" and youtube" in the spec is bad, very bad. Also the 10bit ... what's that? colour depth? It's a bit backwards for colour representation, no?
yup, almost 72% of steam users still use windows7
I had to look that up. Correct. And growing!
However, also note:

That'll throw a spanner in to the other stats, huh?

I could try it, the problem is where I live I basically have to be outside for a reception, 20 mins from the state capital.
Farkennel...that's bad. I had problems in the past, I bought a telstra prepaid 4g device and used it as a backup with an external antenna, all in the upper story window. Worked very well, although this is a bit pricey option, and you really want to be on the telstra network with a telstra subscription - other providers piggybacking on T network are 'second rate customers'. (tested!)
Edit: and of course pings are still nothing to brag about...
This one is a bit mental. And if you're wondering what happens if you hit a bale, go to 5:58
So if there is a few guys keen, we can do a rally cross session online together? Haven't loaded up dirt in quite a while and even when it was new I couldn't find any online racesI've got dirt rally, it's pretty cool. Anyone interested in doing some rally cross, actually, can we still connect online with this?
I don't know, I never do rally-x
(sorry, I've accidentally edited your post when I just wanted to quote it)

You can actually do rally racing, set up you own rally "season" and run it - we used to have that on the arse forums. One race run week. It's not bad, if there's enough interest and someone willing to do the administration
That's the ISP problem not nbn. Backhaul is expensive from nbn so ISP scrimps on it.
Grat, do you know that on fttn, the node has only 2 (two) fibers active from the box to the exchange? (there's a third spare one)
When you have hundreds of people on it, it's feasible that you get congestions.
Having said that; Phil; try Aussie Broadband I've mentioned in the opening post. These guys don't seem to have big evening congestions, and you can test them for a month, free of charge.
(Internode is also pretty congestion free at peak hours, but I don't know of any free trial offers)
