Also, like tons of cars run onboard air jacks, like all of WEC
I’m 90% deaf, believed to be this way since birth. I watched a cool race car inspired cartoon called “Ghosty Eraser” when I was about 2-3 years old. I loved it, thought it was awesome and then never saw it again. Would sometimes have distant memories of this “Kick ass cartoon called Ghosty Eraser... had this rad white … Read more
The air jacks (minus the jumping) are definitely more plausible than the integrated drone. Tons of race cars have them, including my favourite IRL car. I’ve always wanted a set on a car because of watching Speed Racer as a kid, and this gives me the excuse of “historical accuracy.”
That’s what the cockpit enclosure and windshield wipers are for.
I always wondered about the saws. The Mach 5 is supposed to be a race car, so at what point during the competition do the saws come into play? Certainly that isn’t sanctioned by any governing body.
Also they’re a real thing in sportscar racing, which is what the Mach 5 does. And INDYCAR, where the correct number of people go over the wall, unlike F1 and NASCAR, which send ridiculously too many or too few people to carry external jacks.
I have their 15.6" Pro monitor tablet. I love the thing. I used to swear by Wacom, and still have my Intous4 but I’ve been converted. Quite a few other artists that I know have leapt to XP-Pen and Huion for tablets.
Wacom is great and all, it’s mostly price for the name these days.

Word of advice from a professional artist for you Elizabeth (or anyone else with this tablet): try it with the cable attached.
Yes I know it’s a wireless device and it probably seems like it’s working fine. I’ve been a cintiq user for 8+ years so when I started a new job and they initially gave me one of those I… Read more

From what I’ve been seeing, it’s anarchists and White supremacists/cops starting fires, breaking into buildings and encouraging rioting. They’re trying to start a second civil war.
There is more and more video coming out that the out of town Nazis started the riots as agent provocateurs.
Without the proper context, it is impossible to understand the mushroom cloud of uprisings that are exploding across…
That’s funny. She’s taking a course of action because she’s tired of people telling her she’s doing it wrong...and you’re telling her she’s doing that wrong.
Alex Trebek may not understand what nerdcore is, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome. The music subgenre…
For me, gaming is for fun. That’s the whole point. Trying to max out my DPS is too much like work for me to enjoy it. It’s also why I play almost exclusively single player games. MMOs hold zero allure for me. I play co-op stuff with my kids, but that’s about it. Read more
My Son and I are playing FFIX together right now. And I’m always exploring the world with him. It’s so much fun to take the game slow and see all the work that the game developers put into the game. He loves seeing all the cool beasts and battles along the way. I’m 60 hours in my charterers are at level 62 and I’m… Read more
