I was looking at the evo as suggest, I'm testing all the cars and I'm probably going to see which ones are going to be hard or easy.

test 1, MISTU EVO VIII

Very hard car for beginners yet you can really learn a lot of cool techniques.

Problem 1
Hoods not complete and ive been modeling it for about an hour. either the tut will be real long if i went with this car or id have to make a few gos at it to get it so that I will not take as long.

The hoods not finished, its just a start lol still needs more rows and tweeking esp the crease in the middle

I will do the 69 camero when i get time after i do the hood and fender of the evo.

ahhhhhhh dude, im so made. I burned out my processor and I have no job lol. No computer for a while lol and now i gotta find out how much that processor was. Damn thats the problem with having powerful desktop processors in a laptop lol

@young, the jetta is a top choice of mines as well as the gallant. I saw one in person and wow it impressed me esp for a 4 door car. i think the taillights because of the clear case, it looked pretty cool. Also the land rover is a great idea as well as an escalade

Gutted man!

If its a desktop processor in a laptop then it should be cheaper than a top end laptop processor in a laptop, which is some consolation

I mainly got an alienware case so I could stick a couple aditional fans in it to keep my system cool.

My computer litterally runs about half-as-cool as my previous computer did. The old one typically ran at about 60 celsius, and when it got really worked up from me doing 3d work, or blowing s--- up in UT2004, it got to around 85 celsius. Now, with an alienware case and two extra 60 mm fans, it runs at about 27-35 celsius, and the worst I've seen it when it gets worked up was about 47 celsius...

Still, that's cooler than how cool my previous system ran, when it was just running; not doing anything (did that last sentence make sense? )

Hi guys,


With all the available cars, and always the exotic ones getting modeled, why not make a 2007 Audi RS4 Avant or Cabrio.
There's a challenge no ?
And a VERY pretty car!!!

Bought a new mouse today, Logitech MX Revolution: it ROCKS!

Alienware is probably not the best pc to keep for the long haul, but if you can keep it running, then it's a pretty good brand to run with- assuming you can attach the fan from your carburetur to your pc.

Whatever car you decide to do, make one with common problems for most cars like grills and airscoops(I think thats what they're called....)
