Enzo was quicker by just under 1 second. Which is actually huge (see my post above). But I still think it could have done better on a real race track.

Such a shame... Such a slow download time for such a fast car...

I woke up in the middle of the night to see if my download was done... I watched the clip a 4AM in the morning


Do you guys think they need an extra commentator at Top Gear? I would do it for Free!


Cheers

You will need a BitTorrent client to download this file via BitTorrent.

If you do not have a BitTorrent client, I suggest Azereus or ABC (Yet Another BitTorrent Client).

If you already have a BitTorrent client, click HERE to continue.

Bit Torrent is a new Peer to Peer file transfer method. Completely anonymous, etc. While you download, you also upload to other people.

It's basically the wave of the future for P2P file transfers. I use it for music all the time.

It's not like your standard P2P.

Basically you download a small (~100K) .torrent file. Open that and it's all automaticl from there.

There's no way to search the "network" as there are no hubs, etc.

There are some sites that list the .torrents though. Try Supernova.org for a good start.

IMO, bit torrent is great for new and popular stuff. It cant be beat. But for something older or perhaps more rare its not very good, since there isnt really a way to search and there will be less people with BT clients offering the files you are looking for. For this reason it can be kinda crappy for music, depending on your tastes (or at least thats my impression of it).

For $52,000 you could buy 12 of them for the price of one Enzo and start your own race series with your friends.

That would be pretty cool, but it would be pretty close race with no engines
