I've seen no solid proof of this.Must be nice to have a parent or parents that pay for everything... LOL ask him if I can borrow his dad's wallet for a few weeks. Sick STi though. At least he has good taste
He graduated high school with me in 2008. So he's 20/21. I heard today he might be moving back here soon. If so I'll get a shoot done with him.damn that sti is on another level...i read somewhere that he's a college student too.
Him and his buddy shot and edited it. I'm friends with both of them :approve: If they move back for a while we might do some kind of video with all our cars V8 240, JRSC Civic, 400+whp DSM... and my slow ass :lol: and of course a few other cars.Nice video.
I think he's going to film/production school so I hope he's getting good at it! :lol:Great production. Great capture, great editing, and great processing. Your bud is talented for sure.
Thanks! I'm just ready to get my lug nuts back so I can get some new pics!Loving the calipers.
I'm pretty happy with how things have turned out too. I'm STILL waiting on my lug nuts though.what theeeee.. i love the purple!
It's definitely got a lot of work done. There's a few things I would have done different but then again my car wasn't featured in Modified :lol: It is sick though.That sti is so sick.
Damn man. My friends and I were trying to decide if we were going to go to the IFO in KC or Tulsa. I completely forgot about you or I would have pushed for KC! I really want to see your car one of these days tooVery impressive cory. What you doing Sunday? The IFO in KC raceway is going on this Sunday. I'm going to give these coilovers one more time at the track. They don't work for what I want, they coming off.
Thanks. The Civic in the background is also pretty sick. He just finished up getting a Jackson Racing Super Charger installed and is supposed to get it tuned today. Plus he's rocking brand new Regamasters :lol:Good to see yours is comin along even more.
And that 240 looks like a monster!!!....tell your buddy nice job.
I know what you mean with the bottle cap :approve: It seems like it would be too wide though?I don't remember if this was my idea, or if I read it somewhere, but there's an easy way to make the shifter boot flush with the knob. Take a plastic 2L bottle cap, make a hole in the center, and put it on the shifter just below the boot's upper plastic cone/ring*. Since the shifter shaft is graduated, all you have to do is make the hole in the bottle cap larger, and it will move downward. Keep making the hole bigger until the knob screws down sufficiently and is also flush with the top of the boot.
Alternatively, I've read that people have used vacuum hose ziptied to the shaft to hold the boot up higher. This method would require less trial and error, but it also seems like the boot may start sliding down over time.
I hope that makes sense. If not, I can post a pic my bottle cap mod tomorrow. I'm guessing that a worm gear clamp would also get the job done.
I just PM'd you back. I've never tried to take an HDR picture so I need to look into that.Nice. Did you shoot in raw? If you have access to CS3 or CS4 with bridge you might try adding in fill light in RAW for the last shoot to lighted up the hard shadows, bump up exposure a bit, and also use the high light recovery slider. I can tell there was a lot of dynamic range in the photo, and there is no way your camera can capture the entire range. This is a case where HDR can actually be put into good usage. Give that a try next time. It's real easy. Just shoot bracket, and play around with it in photoshop.
Awesome. I figured it was something along those lines. I'll do some reading up about it and try get back out there at a similar time/weather condition so I can try it out.Bracket exposure ... put it on a tripod, do one shot expose for the car, then one expose for the shadows, then one expose for the highlight (sky). I think most camera allows you to set how many stops to bracket automatically. Then use software (such as photoshop or others) to combine the exposure. But becareful and try to avoid bad HDR that are fuzzy and over saturated (overbaked).
