She's a 5.3ltr V8 beast pumping out 355Bhp. It's f**king HUGE but I am absolutely loving driving it.

Every time I start her up I get a semi ;):P

Ooooohh Elsie, don't you think they could've given you something a bit more suitable for someone of your size, like a juggernaut. ;)

I wish that was the plate!

The wing mirrors have sensors in that light up if a car is in your blind spot.

The seat vibrates left / right if you are near an obstacle

If it thinks you are too close to vehicle in front the wind screen flashes red and seat vibrates

The boot can be opened and closed with the remote

Best of all, the air con can blow cold air up through the seat to cool you nuggets!

Lol Jay!

My car doesn't look as good as it did. On Thursday it was raining heavily, so bad that it closed Typhoon Lagoon, the water park we were at. We were driving to the Altemonte Mall and the lights changed. In hindsight I should have floored the pedal and gone through on Amber / red but I didn't. I braked and managed to stop the tank.

Unfortunately, the Mazda behind me did not. I heard the skid and managed to shout BRACE! but we were rammed at speed. I pulled around the corner to get off the main road and checked the back of the tank. The plate covering the tow bar mount had been obliterated, the bottom part of the bumper had been pushed under the car, lots of paint damage.

Then the Mazda came around the corner which had come off much worse. The bonnet was crumpled up and the impact had mangled the front of the car. We had to call th police and fill,out an accident report. Just grateful no one was hurt and the driver of the Mazda was OK, he was a nice chap and kept apologising ... As did I.

Wish I had run the bloody light. Will post pics when back in Blighty.

Good to hear you're all ok. Could quite easily be for the best you did stop, who's to say you wouldn't have had a bigger accident if you'd ran the light?

This is the first RTA I have ever been involved in - just glad no one was hurt.

Very nice :)

 

What is the 0-62 time? 6 days? xD 

 

Its a bit bloody large!! Although I like the seat air-con !! 

 

I'm glad to hear that you are alright, sucks what happened, its why I always just ignore the amber and go through it without a 2nd thought unless something drastic is up in front for fear of this happening :(

 

To be honest the damage to the rear there doesn't really look that bad? I know the place I talk to scuffbusters could easily sort that out for cheap, or was there more structural damage?

 

Good luck lan dad!! I hope everyone is alright

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
