That pass he does early on against the Holden is amazing too!

Hah..perfect..as I have some spare Plutonium from the Rimsky Vorgon days, when he experimented with the escape capsule ( recovered from the bottom of Lake Bullshitski in 1998) I am going to try to order one! It might be time to try to resurrect the mighty Lada now that we have a proper flux capacitor to compliment the Vorgon Decelerator.

The Decelerator at work...artists rendering as it happened so fast there was no time to snap a picture. My neck is still sore from that test.

One historical note to this picture, it shows when we had photo radar here, where as soon as you saw a Chevy van at the side of the road, you slowed down, which was a then a monumental waste of tax payers dollars and the whole program was scrapped.

I found this the other day looking for something else. It is a cleaned up, both audio and colour, and, to me on my computer screen, clearer copy ( 720P) of the movie LEMANS with Steve McQueen. I was enthralled again, watching the start, my heart was racing by the time the cars came around to the start line. If you do nothing, watch that first lap! 24:50 the hearts beat.....

I remember watching La Mans with my uncle Doug when I was a kid 5 or 6 yrs old. The imagery and sound made a strong impression, but I couldn't remember the name, so it was lost as a memory. About 10 years ago I was flipping through the channels and saw an old Steve McQueen movies was coming on, and BINGO!!! I was slapped in the face with one of the coolest childhood flashbacks I've ever had.

Thanks for posting that up Rob, that is very, very interesting, only makes sense what with today's computers and electronics.

They have been working in FreeValve for a long time and it seems to finally be getting to a marketable place. The flexibility would be great on a Race/Street car. It can imitate a tame cam when you want economy and a wild one when you want max power.
