    What I really want to know is who is "the German"...?

    I was lucky enough to be standing in front of that Bugatti at the time. As Blake has said, the sound on the video is NOTHING like how it sounded. It was awesome.

    Roots blown 1.9 litre straight 8.

    Good luck with the upgrade Ryan. You're not allowed to "hot rod" websites over here. The cops are right onto it.

    I've really noticed it was working what seemed much slower the last week or two maybe more and even compared it with other sites to confirm, but no worries, I would just sit and wait patiently till what I wanted to read/see appears. It's funny because I'm not that patient with other sites, but this morning when it became MIA:eek:, but all is well now and I am once again complete:)

    Thanks for the SPEEDY recovery

    Ryan, it's faster!

    ...but some of the threads I've started, and was subscribed to are now gone, including my build thread, for sale ads, etc. They are not under threads I've started, nor do they show up in a search. I typed in Flatcad racing, and still can't find the build thread.

    Anyone else expierencing this?

    Just letting you know one of the bugs after the upgrade...

    Trying to upload a jpg attachment but the upload keeps failing.
    Even a small size doesn't work.
