This is a tough one. Usually custom built machines are quick to pass the pipe, but this is one of those projects that hits all 3 marks: It's [relatively] clean, it works, and the price isn't ridiculous for what it is.

What was your inspiration to design a car with smooth, curvaceous sheetmetal that wouldn't become commonplace in the market for almost another decade, and what sorts of… » 4/17/14 10:35am 4/17/14 10:35am

I sure hope so. I'm okay with these free to play time wasters occupying their own bubble in their respective app ecosystems, but when quality titles get ruined by adopting this bullshit mechanic (the transition from Real Racing 2 to 3 comes to mind), I'm not holding out much hope. » 4/15/14 12:06pm 4/15/14 12:06pm
