Post whatever interests you, mountain related or not.

Awesome. Sounds amazing.

I'm assuming this won't come with a conventional manual transmission. Seems to be the norm for high-end sports cars like the GT-R to have those damned paddle-shifting setups instead. Kills the fun. More efficient doesn't mean more fun.

MSRP: $220,000-$400,000 Laughing

165 allocated for Japan domestic market, 335 for the rest of the world.  In Japan, Toyota is mentioning buyer's 'qualification'.  It sounds like beyond enough money and driver's license  Laughing  - maybe a race experience or...?

Something like what Ferrari does with their order process? (I'm going by word of mouth)

Also, cool link: http://ww2.lexus-lfa.com/Configurator_v2_en.html
Takes a while to load. Configure yer own exterior and interior.

Also out of Toyota, the FT-86:
http://jalopnik.com/5375233/toyota-ft+86-concept-behold-the-new-ae86

Subaru/Toyota project. Kinda sorta based on the AE86 generation Corolla, except with a Boxer engine, IRS, and whatnot.

Yes. That is my interpretation of what the LA basin will look like when we all get infected with the CraZies virus and the government has to nuke it.

And I will be the first to drive, errr, walk my car to the top of Baldy.



Now if I could just find crampons, I will be the first in winter as well.

Good ol' sunny (read: shitty) Fort Benning.

From what he told me, he was disarming an IED on a road in Afghanistan when he uncovered an anti-handling device* (some Russian Claymore-type AP device) blew up. He remembers that, and then being in a hospital in CONUS.


*Anti Handling devices are something you place near a mine to keep someone from messing with it. Think of placing an anti-personel mine under an anti-tank mine.

Very cool.  Looked a little sketchy topping out inside that bush/tree.  I am gonna have to learn to ice climb someday.

If my French is correct, I think they were complaining about the length of the approach.  Laughing

Here be a few funny videos...

For those of us who played Star Wars on old-school Nintendo (8bit):


Fucking hilarious... if you're familiar with drifting, AE86 Corollas, you'll like this...


Fucking hilarious clip with Marcus Gronholm. His codriver Timo had an accident.

The cats one reminds me of some fucked up dreams I've had in the hospital. One of those fever dreams where you wake up soaking wet with sweat. I once imagined little helicopters flying around my bed.

Oh, the things healthy people miss.

Awesome driving by Simon Jean-Joseph. Somewhat old school tarmac rally stage in an Impreza:


Through his driving, one can see the same passion most, if not all of us pursue in life through whatever medium we choose (like climbing or tough hiking). Beautiful.

FWIW, beware of nails on Glendora Mountain Road. I picked one up on a turn a bit before Newman Point (south half of the road), and found a few in the middle of the road. They appear to be for carpentry, if that means anything.

I didn't know how quickly and efficiently I could change a tire until now. The training has paid off.
