  Took of from police can i still get ticket?
Posted by: NORCALSTI - 09-29-2005, 07:28 PM - Forum: Vehicle Laws and Codes - No Replies

ok in a nutshell last night highway patrol tried to pull me over i was doing 85 i saw him come on on ramp he turned on his lights and got behind me. My sti has a full gt35r kit no cats dynoed over 558 on race gas and i was on race gas and now they are sending everyone to refs and honestly my stupid ass said i know the area my house is near by forget this, and as we slowed down i took off ramp off and sfpd was there also waiting at light as i made the turn i did take off.

yes i know its stupid yes i should get what i deserve but both the highway patrol and sfpd cop were gone in a matter of seconds and i took off.

i do not have plates on my car still dealer tags (after 2 years) because now at street races here cops go as regular people and they video your plate and your car and you get tickets in the mail.

just lets say a week from now im driving and cop sees my car with that dealer tag is there anyway that he can pin previous thing i did on me.

  Will Rhys Millen compete in this RWD Evolution?
Posted by: BOB - 09-29-2005, 01:29 PM - Forum: Drifting - No Replies

The note in the video questions whether or not this is Rhys Millen's new D1 toy. Whaddya think? It's definately RWD instead of AWD, and right hand drive. But I don't know if it's for competition or not just because it goes sliding around their warehouse.

save as 7.16mb

Hey I finally got my drivers license and I'm car shopping now. Yea I know about time right lol. Anyway I have a pretty good whip game had the permit for too long. My pops got a 1993 Chrysler Concorde and I drive it from time to time. But I wanted to get something that I wouldn't be embarrassed to drive or have friends drive in. I've been thinking of a Honda Prelude, Acura Interga, or Mit. Eclipse. Just something to get my whip game better. Don't want my insurance to be crazy because I'm not an experienced driver yet. My final ride will be an Infiniti (Nissan) G35 Coupe, picture below, any suggestions for a brother, thanks folks.

P.S. If you could post pics, pros and cons plus price, good mileage on used car that would help greatly!

  Broadband electrical outlets.....
Posted by: Ryans - 09-29-2005, 07:38 AM - Forum: Off topic and General BS'in - No Replies


TOKYO - The common electric socket will serve as your home's connection to broadband with a new chip developed by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. — doing away with all the Ethernet cables or the hassle of hooking up to a wireless network device.

Products are still being developed, but gadgets embedded with the chip from the Japanese manufacturer of Panasonic products can hook up to a broadband network by plugging into the common electrical outlet, company officials said Thursday.

That's because the Osaka-based company has come up with technology to use electric wiring in the home to relay not just electricity but also data.

The technology has been around for some time — including in the United States — but Matsushita's system is unique in that it delivers fast-speed broadband information at up to 170 megabits per second, which is faster than Ethernet.

The advantage is that the lowly electric socket is everywhere. Right now, a broadband outlet still isn't usually available in every room, even in homes that have broadband connections.

In the future home envisioned by Matsushita, people will be able to download and watch high-definition movies in any room of the house that has an outlet.

Attach a special device made by Matsushita into a socket and all you have to do is plug your TV or other gadgets into a socket for instant connection to broadband, which allows for faster transmission of online information than dial-up telephone connections.

Matsushita hopes to eventually sell refrigerators, TVs and other products with the chip already installed.

A network-connected refrigerator may allow users to connect from a mobile phone or laptop to check whether you're low on eggs, for example. Or you may want to turn gadgets off or on, such as your washing machine or air-conditioner, from outside the home.

But for now, an adaptor when plugged into an outlet will allow gadgets with Ethernet connections — even those without the Matsushita chip — to receive broadband.

Matsushita official Tomiya Miyazaki said that even homes with optical fiber connections don't have broadband outlets in every room, and people are tired of setting up gadgets with their home wireless LAN device.

"Our goal is to have every gadget plugged in this way so that people don't have to even think about connecting it to broadband," he said.

Samples of the technology are being made available to companies, including other Japanese electronics makers, that may wish to use it for their products, Matsushita officials said. A demonstration of the technology will be on show at the CEATEC exhibition that showcases electronic technology, opening near Tokyo next month.

Acceptance of the technology is more likely in Europe and the United States because of stricter regulations over power line use in Japan, according to Matsushita. The company is in talks with the Japanese government to have regulations eased.
