I really don't get my "cousins" who use characters with missing penstrokes. Even when it's translated.

^ Not only did the English not make sense at all. It doesn't even match the Chinese.

Here, learn some Chinese.

Reminds me of that image from a few years back where it looked like a series of Chinese characters, but if you rotate it 90 degrees it simply said "**** YOU" in weird lettering.

One last off-topic one here...

This is by far my favourite - although sadly it's from Hong Kong. I actually stayed in the hotel upstairs from this restaurant, too!



Anybody want some "Hand pills to fight pork"?

I've never taken a vehicle into winter mode... so this being the first time, I decided to keep it simple. New steelies and a set of XI3's.

HBL Autosports for the win.

Now, I just need to see if I can get my hands on some winter mode stickers...

I know it's a lot fun to drive it in the snow, but if you know the money Ive spent and planning to spend. You'd do the same, especially if you have an option of a truck to drive in the winter time.

I've seen people spending a lot of money but still choose to enjoy their cars. Especially in conditions these cars are known to excel in.

I've parked mine for the winter too. Mainly because it needs a new clutch and cant afford it right now. But I've also got a little s10 beater to drive anyway

Not ready!!! But doing ok. Looking for advice driving in snow conditions with my current set up. I'm posting here because I'm not allowed to make s new thread yet but also I want to talk somewhere to discuss driving in snow conditions like we're having right now (6-7am, Dec20/13) in the lower mainland. Maybe I should go to the meet tonight.

So what dccd mode do you drive on unplowed roads? I went with 1 Mark below full diff lock and S# with tc on. I drove a good 20km to work then tested modes out in the parking lot for a bit.

Auto was horrible, lost traction several time driving straight. Full diff lock was great for driving straight and on hold but **** me if I had to turn.

Overall the drive still felt a little floaty today. But in all honesty its probably because of the tires. I'm running DWS extreme contacts, at 35psi. They have 35k clicks on them too. Not the best for snow but still amazing in rain.

The single piece of advice that I can give you for your situation is: get snow tires.
