@  Mike T : (13 December 2014 - 08:17 PM) It's the only decent cruise that was available for the 451 in the first years.
@  Th3Guardian : (13 December 2014 - 07:32 PM) does anyone have experience with this cruise control? http://www.smartiepa...e=index&cPath=1
@  FlossyTheSmart : (10 December 2014 - 11:30 AM) If anyone ever happens across a dead attachment (The file doesn't exist when you go to download it), let me know the link to the file. Generally you'll encounter dead attachments in posts older than 2007. The dead links are raising some (false) red flags for me on some things, and it's kind of annoying, so I've been making sure to edit the links away as I find them. The files are typically gone for good.

The 24h race is on now, another Peugeot diesel versus Audi diesel epic, and there has already been a horrific crash within the first hour, Alan McNish put his Audi R18 into a non-existent gap and the result was a potentially lethal crash although he luckily walked away.The race has been under a full course yellow since that happened 30 minutes ago.22.5 hours to go......

Jesus, another Audi and GT Ferrari came together, this time resulting in the total destruction of the Rockenfeller Audi. Mike Rockenfeller got out of the remains of the car by himself, amazing.So it's another long safety car period and the last remaining Audi is in first (aided by the triple safety cars, which put the Peugeots further behind on the track), followed by the three factory Peugeot 908s and then the De Chaunac 908 HDI FAP.Just over 15 hours to go.

8:25 to go, Audi first, Peugeots 2,3,4,5. They're only a few seconds apart. Better than F-1 any day!!! Watching it in HD on Speed Channel.

Half an hour to go: Audi is 7 seconds ahead of the #9 Peugeot, after 23.5 hours. Best racing in the world.

Great show, I stayed up for all 24 hours. Peugeot diesels 2-3-4-5....they were reliable but didn't quite have the required speed.

I was damned interesting as it was, but yeah. And had the Number 7 Peugeot not been stuffed into the wall necessitating a RF suspension change, it could well have finished first. I love endurance racing.....

Another day that shall live in infamy forever: http://www.autosport...rt.php/id/97080 There goes the 2012 season. And maybe Peugeot as a carmaker. Things (in a financial sense) have to be extremely dire for them to cancel the program at this late date, partway through the car development program. It's sad for Le Mans too, there will be no competition in LMP1 for Audi this season.
