I don't know whether to or or .

It's a good show n' all, and I'll make a point to watch 'em take shots at my Camaro. But since we are talkin' shows about cars, how about Speed Channel?

http://www.speedtv.com/programs/pass-time/

This show is great!

http://www.speedtv.com/programs/pinks-all-out/

Great show, great cars!

Top Gear review of the 70's Renault reliant 3 wheeler

You should see the Top Gear review of the 70's Renault reliant 3 wheeler! TOO funny! Very well done and I agree with Clarkson, what were they thinking!? It's on autoblog and many others. Fuuuu-ny! eB

I hope hamster aka Hammond drives it, cause ever since Richard Hammond introduced the 2010 Camaro during there news segment a couple seasons back he was defending the Camaro's honor to the bitter end against James May and Clarkson!!

Lol he's was gitty like a school girl when he was talking up the Camaro!!

finalgear.com has links to torrents of every episode as well as 5th Gear which is a more serious car review show but they still have fun and Tiff Needell actually knows how to drive a car.

haha yeah it took me a while to figure it out and get mine running at a decent speed.

basically the torrent is a compressed file that makes things easier to share and download. You need a torrent downloader (I use utorrent because it's free. www.utorrent.com) this program is your interface to be able to download and use the files. Kinda like napster/kazaa/limewire etc.

you install a downloader, then go find your torrent file and open it. It'll start downloading and when it's done it'll decompress it and stick it in the folder of your choosing.

Where it starts to get sticky is when you want to optimize it for some speed. You have to set up a static IP address, and forward your ports for it to use. every time your modem connects you to the internet you're given an IP address, most connections today use a "Floating" IP so it randomizes within a set range of numbers. This makes it difficult for downloading programs like utorrent to establish the right connection every time. So you have to look up what range is assigned to you, pick one, and set it as static so it picks the same one every time. There are tutorials in the google machine that will walk you through how to do it. I'll see if I can find the one I used, it was pretty easy to understand. Once you set it up, you really never have to do it again, so it's worth the couple of minutes to get it going if you really want it. I basically only download Top Gear haha but it's totally worth it.

I watched so much TG at one point I actually started to think in a british accent and started calling the trunk a boot and the hood a bonnet haha It was a wierd time.


EDIT: here is a good connection setup walkthrough www.utorrent.com/documentation/connection-setup

I really don't care if they talk crap about the Camaro. If it was the U.S. Top Gear talking crap about it...then we got a problem...I just wanna see the Camaro being driven around a track the way it's suppose to be driven!

Cause obviously we don't see any of that in any GM commercials. I always get all gity when I see the Mustang commercials doing slo-mo burnouts and turns and awesome angles of the car...AND I HATE MUSTANGS!!!

GM has to realize that they have to market the Camaro other than those lame Transformers movies.

They nit-pcik all the cars; almost none are without fault in their reviews. I think when they say they had fund driving the car, that's about the highest complement they can give. That's just me though
