I anticipation for this game I started GT4 again. Realized how much time I was spending on it and made the move not to buy a PS3. GT is like crack for me.

Started a room on GT5 called:

nasioc grand rapids

I think you can get 12 people at once racing. We'll see how it works.

Sold my ps3 years ago because nothing good was out. Since GT5 is now out, I'm picking up another PS3 tomorrow and GT5.

Is the game is good as it looks? I'd spent countless hrs playing previous GT games..

Oh GT5 is amazing...however I am not all that impressed with the Beginner Rally Stages. I hope they get a lot better. It's not a good representation of what real Rally Stages look like at all

Rob

Picked it up today from chicago. Planning on ripping it down soon.

You can tear it down without a stand. I never used one in the past four tear downs.

A stand is very nice to have. Get a 20% coupon out of the back of a magazine and go to harbor freight, use the coupon to further reduce the price of an engine stand that is on sale.

They're not professional grade exactly, but a subaru engine isn't wildly heavy so their low-end model should hold up. Print the web price before you go in store in case they don't have it on sale in-store.

it's not so bad to tear down without, but for assembly I bet you'll want it.

Meet is Wednesday. We are doing 7pm to allow people a little more time to get there and maybe avoid some of the rush hour traffic.

Wow, $60 is just ridiculous.

Speaking of cheap tools, anyone know where I should go to get a decent, reasonably priced work bench? I am thinking 6-8 feet long and 3-4 feet deep.

Also, anyone on here have access to any *ahem* VIN databases? I know they're not foolproof, but I am in the market for a late nineties, early 00's Cherokee and I am sort of leary of them.

Thanks

For a workbench, go to menards and get gorilla rack. It comes in 4, 6, and 7 foot height end pieces and the same for shelf lengths. It's modular, you can mix and match, and it's easy to take apart if you move. It's what I have in my shop, I just put a shelf at the right height to use as a workbench:

Nice workspace and heated tooo.


Engine tear down and look what I found:



Two blown rod bearings guess the dude didn't like his car. Thankfully block seems good and those bearings didn't go to **** too.

Is the work surface basically a mdf shelf that lifts out? I think I have seen those before, but do you think a vise would mount securely to something like that? I guess I am not worried about portability right now.

They don't come with the shelf surface. I used 3/4" plywood, convenient because you rip a full sheet to create 2 shelves. If you wanted a little more meat to it just rip the 4x8' sheet of 3/4" plywood lengthwise and glue the halves together. A vise or grinder would bolt to that OK.
