I was lucky enough to be sent a review copy of Forza Horizon for Xbox 360 ahead of it’s public release on the 23rd so I thought it was only fair that I actually post my amateur review of the game. If you’re interested, you can find my review over on our forums.
While we’re on the subject of free filming tickets, I thought I’d point out that tickets are also available for The Car Show. That’s Adam Carolla’s automotive show after he was unable to host Top Gear America.
On a side note, we will probably not be providing coverage of this show here on FinalGear.com. There’s lots of great automotive TV shows out there and it wouldn’t be feasible to cover them all. Plus we like our niche of being the best place to get news about everything Top Gear and discuss the show and it’s directly related shows.
Recently Tim prepared an Aston Martin V8 Vantage for the 2009 24 Hours Nürburgring endurance race. The German DMAX television channel aired a 6 part documentary on his adventure, however it was only broadcast in German. Thanks to the hard work of some of our forum members though, it is now available with English subtitles. If you’d like to watch this great little documentary, you can find a torrent right here.
Besides being totally awesome, µTorrent v1.8 fixes a “critical” vulnerability that exists in previous versions. So if you’re running an old version of µTorrent or even the BitTorrent branded client (which is just a reskinned µTorrent), please upgrade/switch to µTorrent 1.8. It’s easier to use and more secure. You can update by going Help -> Check for Updates.
If you’re downloading any of theseasonpacks and are getting slow speeds, then here’s who to blame: the people the download it (100%) and then stop the torrent in their client.
Take the season 4 pack for example — there are currently 76 seeders and 715 peers. However, at least 348 people have completed the torrent. That means nearly 275 people have downloaded it and then not returned the favor by seeding for a while. Even if it’s a slow upload, every bit helps.
So if you’re one of those hit and runners, please be nice the community and continue uploading for a few days rather than being a dick. Thanks.
If you use µTorrent, please make sure to upgrade to the latest version, 1.7.6. All previous versions have a bug where a remote user could crash your copy of µTorrent and in some cases, possibly even get into your PC.
So again, if you use µTorrent, please make sure you’re running the latest version!
UPDATE: I almost forgot — this exploit applies to the BitTorrent branded client too as it’s just µTorrent with a different name.
Yeah, this isn’t Top Gear or Fifth Gear related, but I’m sure many of you were Colin McRae fans, so I’m posting anyway.
The former rally driving champion Colin McRae was killed and his five year-old son feared dead in a helicopter crash yesterday (it’s Sunday now in the UK. -Viper) afternoon. The aircraft came down in Jerviswood, Lanarkshire, half a mile from the family’s home and burst into flames just after 4pm.
Jean-Eric Freudiger, McRae’s agent, said the 39-year-old driver had been piloting the helicopter himself. Also on board were believed to be his son Johnny, another adult – said by locals to be a school friend of McRae – and another child. McRae’s wife Alison and their daughter Hollie, 9, were not on board, friends said.
Many thanks to everyone who's ripped the episodes on this site as well as Quiky and PacketCollision for being awesome sysops.
