I'm kidding, of course you didnt. Thank you for pointing out that my car does in fact have a differential. The kind that spins whichever tire has no traction.

To some, that is really no differential at all.
So because something doesn't do what you want it to do, it is no longer what it was? Error, does not compute...

Again, no reasonable person would apply what i said to mean my RSX has a live axle. So the rule apparently seems to be true. Any reasonable person would find that I am complaining about my open diff car. Congratulations, Captain obvious, you have proven yourself unreasonable.

What they believed: when I said "no diff" i meant "no limited slip diff"

What you believed: when I said "no diff" i meant "car has a straight front axle"

Please, tell me how you are the one who is reasonable.

Dude, even a car with 'live axles' has a differential!

I've been thinking about getting one, not only for my car but also when I'm on my bike.

Are there any that do rolling recording, so I don't have to go delete when I run out of space?

A lot of those problems are being caused by the fuel system from what I have heard Subaru is supposedly scrapping the Toyota direct injection for their own version. We will see what comes in the next two years.

But I agree, if you're tracking something you can't afford to replace, you should've built something cheaper to replace!

tire based dynamics to start with. and lets just say you can do a displacement increase on something that isn't a skyline...

Well I have not played FM4 at all and won't unless I can use a wheel. It does have advantages over GT5 but I will stick with it. I think that 6 should out do anything forza will do but it sucks that it will have come so late to the party. The keg is almost gone already lol.
