I just came across this video, and thought of you.
I'm not saying you need to do this to Velvet, but I thought you would appreciate it.

HA, HA! He must have been inspired by Gran Turismo video game:



That's got to really bruise a sports car racer's masculinity to not be able to catch a breadbox on the track. I mean really, could the bus be that much better handling? I think not. I think it was pure skill.

His bus is sure noisy like Velvet. I know he can't be running the RGB's that she is, or have the wind blowing through the fresh air vent rust hole like she does. I wonder what his excuse for the noise is?

Thanks for sharing!

I'll try to get some pictures or something to follow up on the video. It's a twin turbo 996 engine with a 6 speed transmission out of a 997 I believe.

I hated the bus challenge in Gran Turismo 5 SO much.

Okay, just watched two more times.

Damn you Chris. Now I can't stop thinking of how I could swap Hugo's new motor into Velvet now and then for some fun. Bummer about the dang tranny needing swapping too or it would be a total waste of power with the RGB's. That would mean getting long axles and a bug box, new wheels and tires. And of course would need to slam the front with drop spindles at a minimum.... Poor Ray.

Damn you Chris....

Suspect

No please do not take that engine away from Hugo! Hugo deserves it.

I'm sorry I was just so excited when I saw that video I immediately thought of you Very Happy

*Sigh* I could never afford it after what I've spent this year. It could maybe be on my list next year though..... Wink

You don't want to hack up Velvet.

I know where some cheap Kombi's are though. Wink
