Halo: Reach

So, Reach came out yesterday. Been playing matchmaking and so far I can say is that it didn't change from the beta. I would think that it would be a little bit different, but oh well. Can't play campaign co-op because I have the basic Xbox 360 slim with no hard drive and apparently you need one to play online. Even though it has 4gb of memory inside...Give me your thoughts.

Pagani Zonda R

Pagani Zonda R Autoguide Article

Ooh, I must have been on something yesterday, because I had completely forgotten that a new Zonda from Pagani had taken the lap time record. Pagani's Zonda R, taking only several weeks, stole the record from Ferrari's 6:58 Nurburgring lap. Although these two aren't really fully road-legal cars, thats just immense.

The Zonda R is a track-only machine weighing just 2,359 lbs and powered by a 6.0-liter AMG V12 engine that makes an incredible 750-hp and 524 ft-lbs of torque. That’s enough for a 0-60 mp time of just 2.7 seconds, using a mid-engine, rear-drive setup with a paddle-shift sequential gearbox.

The street legal lap still belongs to the Radical SR8LM with a time of 6:48. But that’s also a bit ridiculous, as the Radical is just a street-legal prototype race car and it’s not even legal in most countries. The runner up in the production class is another odd-ball, the Gumpert Apollo, with a 7:11.57. Although it’s hard to classify that vehicle as a production car. Finally, and more reasonably, there’s the 7:22 of the Dodge Viper ACR

New Ferrari beats Nurburgring lap time

Ferrari 599XX

Watching Top Gear, I heard that Ferrari has made a new sports car that has beaten the lap time record at the Nordschleife circuit, doing it in 6 minutes 58 seconds. 12 miles in under 7 minutes, thats crazy!!

On a side note, I just found out the Stig's identity has been revealed...NNNOOOOOOOO
(all Top Gear fans should be distraught)

Jaguar S-Type


Just to have something posted on here, I've decided to post about my car, the Jaguar S-type. Now, I spotted this beauty in the local salvage yard. My father returned home on a Sunday morning, and informed me of the cars he'd found. After my experience with this car, I actually do not approve of buying cars from a salvage yard anymore. Unless you know someone who knows what they are doing and are reliable, do not buy salvaged cars. So my first thought was that the Jag would be in a terrible condition. My father is very, very frugal so I imagined it was very cheap, therefore pretty beat up. I decided to take a trip to the yard and found out that the only damage done to the car was its back bumper and one of its back windows was broken. My first impression was that it shouldn't be that expensive to fix it up. After contacting a couple of collision centers and got estimates, we decided that they charged too much. In the end, we ended up going to some man, whom my father has known for a long time. Money was pretty tight after buying the Jag AND a Chevy Tahoe we found as well, there was no other alternative. I had a feeling that this was not the best choice but decided to see how it would turn out. More than a month after, my father retrieved the car. Because it was night and couldn't really see the car, he didn't bother to check to see how it turned out. I was unable to go because I had other responsibilities elsewhere. Long story short, the back was not repaired correctly, the brake light assembly does not fit properly, therefore a wire somewhere shorted out and none of the lights work. Taking this car to the dealer is EXPENSIVE. Recently, I had to buy new wheel nuts and they cost $23. Twenty-Three! In total, along with wheel studs, it came out to be $163. My current job is not paying much, so it would be best to not having anything else break.
I love this car, I DO plan to have it fixed up completely one of these days. If you were to try to GTA me, I would have to destroy you. Anyways, I've run out of things to say. Take it easy.
