Hey peeps…

Whoah.. It’s been very hectic lately. With work and all. Busy like hell lah.. Hehehhe…

Anyway, even though I was busy, I did manage to squeeze in a story I did about flying. It’s very interesting. Very entertaining. In other words, very nice lah.

Here it is:  The A-Z on how to be a pilot

Do have a read if you’re bored.

Ahhh… now comes the best part. About them flying cars. Not literally flying lah, but if there were wings on my ride, it should get airborne.

A few weeks ago, there was a private track day. I was lucky enough to enter as someone pulled out last minute. It was a few days after the F1 race so, the rubbers on the track really helped. Will share some images and a video made by my friend.

Here’s some pics pulak…

Damn Sexy R

Well peeps, if ever you need to vent your frustration by driving like a mad man, this is the place to do it. Racing on the road is dangerous. Do it legally on track. This is a community message by ari7474.

Thanks for reading.. and oh.. Happy Labour Day! 😀 😀 😀

Ari does the Civic Type-R

Hi there peeps.. As you all are aware, I’m a car nut. I love cars. So, yesterday, I went and called up Honda Malaysia for a test drive. Test drive what..? Well, its the brand spanking new Civic Type-R (FD2R). 

Now, I know there’s plenty of reviews out there on the FD2R and what I’m doing here is more on the layman’s term about the car ok.. From my POV laa.. 

For those who don’t know, here’s how the CTR looks like..

Very garang right..? Anyway, if anyone were to have even the slightest interest in it would know that this is a performance car. The “R” stands for Racing.. oohhh… sexy.. Again, this car only has one colour, which is the Championship White and it’s only in Manual transmission. For those who hates manual, then this is not for you. Before I begin.. let me show you the interior of this beast…

Sexy kan..? Oohhh.. I can imagine me in this beast rolling around Heritage row… Hahah.. Berangan.. Anyway, as soon as I met Ivan ( the Honda guy), I liked him already. He’s a very nice dude with a good attitude towards his customers. I would thoroughly recommend him if anyone wants to purchase a Honda in the future..

Ok, so, I sat in the car.. put the key in, pressed the clutch and looked for the red starter button. Vrrooommm… Alright, so, it didnt actually vrrrooomm but more like vrumm… Its stock standard. Put it in 1st, then off I went into my own world..

The ratios for the gears are pretty short. So, for you to hit sixth gear is very fast. The red line is at 8500rpm. The i-Vtec comes in at around 5400 revs.. But, lemme tell you, under normal driving conditions, the car seems very ummm… normal. But when you floor it, all 220 race bred horses pushes you to the back of your seat. Screaming all the way to the red line. “Now, that my friend.. is pure ecstasy..” (Horatio style of saying this with his glasses..).

Some say the race tuned suspension is hard but I find it acceptable. My kids and missus didnt have any problems with it. Boot space is ample. And fuel economy is… ok lah .. i guess.. in 6th gear, at 3000revs, the red digital speedo says 100kmh. So, cruising down the highway to JB or Penang wont be a problem.

As for the performance and looks, I’d give it a 9.5/10.. I really like this car. I want this car. Or should I say, I ‘NEED’ this car..

And lastly before I go, (the missus is calling already.. have to go out for dinner…) I’ll show you guys a more common view of the CTR. From the back. That is what most of us would be seeing anyway.. hahahaha… Cheers guys..
