First episode premiered last night, and it was breedy gud. Looked every bit as shiny and nice as TG - just goes to show even without the BBC's budget, they can still make a good car show. Anyone else seen it? Thoughts?

Twice. Only jerked off to it once, though, because I was tired.

It was pretty cool.
I thought they were trying too hard to be funny though, didn't seem like they were natural responses from the trio. Also trying too hard to be Top Gear, but I have a feeling it'll evolve to differentiate itself over time.
The camera work also isnt as good in a few shots.

Just nitpicking

All in All it was a bloody good show mate ~ I totally digg'd the play on American words - The preview of James May shooting a SCARS ruffle - and the French driver's critique of the holy-3 super cars. Personally I would've just popped-open the Rezvani Type-X on the 1st episode & beat the ferk outta everybody else but ... I suppose we gotta let the sponsors have their way with the ol' blokes lest we lose all our budget on caravan torching stunts. wink3.gif

All of the cameo appearances of future IDW members really tickled my under-belly ace. But I do gotta admit ~ that fsckin' fall was one helluva steel canon ball run for the amount of quid I got payed ohy! ohmy.gif

I heard an interview with the producer of the show on the radio, most of the ideas come from the Clarkson, Hammond and May anyway so its not surprising that its like top gear.

Loved the skydiving fail!

★ I wonder if they're gonna visit Japan...? ohmy.gif ~ being an internet TV series: this show's directly aimed at petrol-heads & weeaboos alike. I wanna see 'em drive a touge like Tsuchiya used to do back in the old BM days ~ grin2.gif user posted image

★ I'm starting to really like that fat Nascar driver ~ laugh.gif

★ Welp that Aston Vulcan thing looks absolutely painful to climb into ~ I originally thought it was the Rezvani Beast but apparently not this one's got a roof! grin2.gif

★ Imma go ahead & say it's the new Batmobile user posted image ... I'd rather own a P1 but as far as styling goes ~ I still think there's no other sexier car than the 488 and the Corvette. Chevy might not be able to compete with the big toys of the supercar world but I'm still in love with the way a simple 2016 Stingray (C7) looks. awesome.gif <3

Man that car is awesome.

Trigger warning: I love this new show. 20x better than the old (wrong) Top Gear. Dunno why. The timing, coordination, flow is just way more organic.

Hell, it even beats out our old top gear (the right one).

That thing's not a car ~ it's a Dodge motherfscking Viper running on Nuclear fallout SEX ~ you can't even hear yourself in the cabin of that ship wub.gif ♪ ♫

In the absence of Top Gear I started watching YouTube's /DRIVE and EVO channels ~ both very commendable review shows ~ but they have no shtick. I agree about TGT's flow ~ it seems less uptight and worried about losing it's sponsorship.

Hopefully this thing'll last as long as the olde Top Gear did ~ clover.gif

★ Pretty sure nothing can top that Vulcan Ace Combat thing. But I'm starting to really like the new McLaren ~ they did a review of the P1 on an old Top Gear ep BUT ... I'm hoping they do a review of the P1 GTR because oohhh god I just jizz'd my wizz all over this Brit Khalifa ~ awesome.gif *drooooool* ~>

YOUTUBE ( http://youtube.com/watch?v=OL_eIZjiLUk )

★ It's not even motherfscking road-legal but who cares let a man dream & break the law once in a while ~ wub.gif

YOUTUBE ( http://youtube.com/watch?v=aDJbDdV3UZo )

Edit: I just realized the 1st episode was a semi-review of the P1 alongside the other 2 stooges ... I should really stop smoking weed start watching these shows with the mute button off & eurobeat not playing in the background... derp.gif (still want a GTR review tho ♫)

But Clarkson's just too nutterz & Hamster's got a peanut for a brain ~ laugh.gif

I found some pretty interesting theory videos on a site called Driver61 ohmy.gif

--- --- ---

I've no real experience driving fast on any track or fast-vehicle BUT one thing I've found when driving RWD cars is that if I initiate the slide prior to turning on the corner - I have more control of the car & end up having a lot more fun than if I induce a power-slide midway or exiting the corner like most people with over-powered cars tend to do ~ I see that a lot with Corvette owners!

I see how slow I am by starting the slide before the corner and swooping-out of it smoothly - as opposed to - just doing proper braking & taking a curve with grip so I can be faster & cut some seconds. But I feel I have more control when I start the slide early before the apex & end up enjoying the "drift" even though I'm obviously slower...

I don't even play racing games ~ last one I played was Enthusia eons ago! But does that make any sense? laugh.gif
