Top Gear - [6x04] - 2005.06.19.avi

In other words, the episode of top gear in which they review a CTS-V and pit it up against the Audi S4 with a professional driver. I will, by request, chop this video up and put it in a codec of your choice (my choice would be a low bitrate x264 or med-bitrate xvid). However, I can do WMV AVC-1 or standard WMV.

In related news, I finally test drove a CTS-V today. Its a toss up between this or the Trailblazer SS. Coming from a heavy modded 03 Cobra and the occasional getaway in a Ford GT, I couldn't tell the difference in speed between the two, slower, but respectable cars. I'll be making up my mind in a few weeks.

Now, as far as the video goes, we have a few options. I can put it up for temporary download on two of my two connections (768K upload each). I can put it up for bit torrent and let the file spread itself. Or.. maybe one of you will host it.. I could also split up into rars and post it as several attachments.

Let me know if your interested.

2WD or AWD SS?

Woah, nice FAQ! I am looking at both. But, leaning towards AWD.. I can always add more power to compensate, but I can never really "add" the traction improvement that AWD provides over RWD later on. Would you like a higher res, properly cropped, version of the review?
