How is it that the Langley SSS Turbo cost less than an Exa? Its the same shape, but bigger! Surely it uses more materials, and its cheaper???

What i would give for one tho... :)

i have found a heap of articles for the collection while cleaning out the store room full of old magazines etc...... Not really from the 80's but early 90's so i figure close enough.
An early comparison of the best fours to modify from fast fours issue 1
Some art work of body upgrades to the Exa,as well as A few stories from the earlier issues of fast fours and hot 4's on ET's.
I still have a big pile to go through but i can think of at least five maybe six other article sthat have been in these mags over the years.

Now, How do i attach them ???? and i'll post up some scanned copies.

make an account on www.photobucket.com ..It's free so don't worry, Then once you in hit the upload button, and then find the pic on you want to upload and then hit OK..it will then upload then once its uploaded to photo bucket then there's a IMG code so copy that into here and it's done

Here you go

By the way, if you scan your pix at 600dpi then resize them smaller, that'll eliminate that shitty moire pattern. It happens when you scan at too low a resolution to pick up all the dots; if you can see the whole printing pattern you're right... pics like these prolly need to start off being like 3000 pixels wide.

Check out BBCode.

Basically, to get a clickable thumbnail, you go Image.

For Photobucket links, the thumbnail has th_ appended to the start of the filename, eg
http://i578.photobucket.com/albums/ss22 ... 25-1-1.png
http://i578.photobucket.com/albums/ss22 ... 25-1-1.png

Tinypic sticks it on the end.
http://i44.tinypic.com/2cpf59h.jpg
http://i44.tinypic.com/2cpf59h_th.jpg

But if you use Firefox, you can just right-click a thumbnail and Copy Image Location.

You can quote any posts that use a trick you want to know to get a look at the code, too.

Huh... Nissan's first factory turbo production car.

Didn't know that... the legacy of Nissan turbos ain't a bad claim to fame, eh?
