Who are you?

Post by Starman » Fri 27 Sep, 2013 8:11 pm

I am Steve.
I am a professional engineer.
I like to engineer things.
I like things that have been engineered like cars, watches, bikes, jets.
I have a lovely wife and 2 awesome kids.
I like heavy music (mega-heavy) and like it loud.
Not just a bit loud, we're talking law-suit loud.
I like rugby league and test cricket.
I like to BBQ with friends and family.
I like my steak seared then flame-grilled, medium-well please.
I work as an engineering management consultant (imagine that).
I like getaways with my wife and kids.
I like electronic toys and gadgets.
I really enjoy learning guitar and music.
I like kickass spicy foods.
I like movies that scare the bejesus out of me
I like working-out and feeling the burn.
I like a beer, and equally enjoy a really good cup of tea.
I drive an E500 (grinning).
Next I am thinking AMG, maybe CLK or CLS.
Ultimate ride would be S63.

Eric - my car lives at my parents house in Cowra. Only recently moved to Bathurst as it's closer to work (not Mars/uncle bens, I'm at Nestle Purina or Friskies to many still) and my Fiancé is from Bathurst. Building a house soon, should start in the next month or so. So hopefully my car will be living with me next year. Dependant on if I have some shed money left over right away.

David - as far as RC cars go, I have a small collection of about 120 cars. Ranging from very early Tamiya cars up to top of the line nitro and electric touring cars. On road, off road, motorbikes, buggies, monster trucks bit of everything.
Currently getting back into racing just for fun. Racing what they call "mini class" which is the tamiya M03 and M05 chassis. Called Mini because they originally come with Mini Cooper body shells, and are front wheel drive and 1/10th mini scale. Cheap and lots of fun. Also just built a Tamiya F1. Haven't raced it yet. Looks challenging.

Those traxxas cars are bonkers. I've got a 1/16 rally. Only because you could buy a replacement body which replicates my Ford Focus ST. Dad bought one also but has modified it with brushless motor and 2 lipo batteries. It proves that unimaginable thing that there is such a thing as too much power!

Post by vierkommazwei » Fri 06 Mar, 2015 12:53 am

My name is henry stonefield (if you translated it to english. But i'm so sorry about my bad english... :dontknow: )

in germany the wintertime is ending and so i reactivated my Mercedes Benz W126 420 SE with 380.000 Km (235980 miles). Because the german people are not so advanced in Youtube and co, i thought i will post my video clip on the other side of our earth... :happy3: So feel invited for a trip to the german main river the Rhein:

I presume this is the infamous Mercmad sarcasm in operation. We get to see the inside of a rather damp basement car park with a whole lot of ceiling pipes carrying God-knows-what, followed by one of the Fatherland's least attractive petrol stations - all at glacial speed.

Nice car, but this clip ain't going to win an Oscar.

Where is the beautiful countryside for which the country is famous?

Things do improve in part 2:

The nation may well be in a slow decline, but it is good to see some Germans still follow orders.

You guys are mad to put so many examples of the W126 onto one ferry. Imagine the loss of motoring heritage if it was to sink.
They don't make them any more you know.
