See what I mean?

Despite being heavy, the GT-R is still in the same league as these cars, and that's why I admire Nissan. But that doesn't mean that they cannot make it any lighter and nimbler.
Ahem. I agree about it being heavy compared to these cars but the pricing on these fab 4? Cutting weight on the GT-R would certainly mean higher cost. Nissan's position on this is if I am not mistaken is something like cost of a luxury sedan but performance of a..
Mr Clarkson comments something to that effect as well.

Thriller is a separate DVD.

I think the GT-R is perfect as it is - some comfort, neck breaking performance, wallet-friendly price. It is in my "Buy when I have money" list (which is separate from the list which has stuff like the Reventon on it). I worry about servicing it. Maybe in twenty years, they'll have a dealer network here with the Nissan Performance people who specialize in the GT-R.

For the hardcore people, a V-Spec is coming - lighter, faster, costlier.

just managed to catch the 4th episode - I had expectations from the veyron, but I guess its not really a track car, not comparable to the zonda or any other car in the 1.17s or lower. Veyron also didn't seem that fun around the track, too composed

Just finished watching it.

The Cool Wall's back. Otherwise, quite an ordinary run of the mill episode.

Although you do get to see a record almost being shattered. Won't elaborate too much on that.

Ok, one question

I have downloaded the files, avi video format, and am able to watch the same on my laptop. I then cut a VCD through Nero to watch the same on TV. But on playing the VCD, there is a lot of shrieking noise and the video is also not continuous. Do I need to have any settings enabled while converting it to a VCD? Or any other way?

Also, anyone in Bangalore having the previous seasons? Easier to duplicate than download.

Thanks.
