I believe Luster can do the coding. I may even get the OBD thing to code myself. Apparently it's not that expensive, under $100 on eBay.
Nice camera! What kind of lens do you use?

Do you have any tips for a very amateur starter? I have D7000 with the standard 18-105mm lens.

Luster and the rest of you chaps are very far away for me! Does anyone know the cable in question and where I need to look?

I'm no professional but if anyone want to know anything photography, let me know as I am more than happy to help.
I'd like to know about photography…
May go shopping for your lens too, though just bought a 50mm F1.4 which seems great.

I have all kind of lens for different applications: macro (100mm), portrait (70-200mm, 85mm prime, ultra-wide 14mm prime, wide (16-35mm) and my walk-around 24-70mm.

Sorry I don't know the exact cable but it would be a OBD II cable plus software that usually run on windows. Do some

Check out Michael Furman. He's an automotive photographer. I have his book "Automobiles of the classic era" with pictures of some of the cars at the Mullin Automotive museum in Oxnard California where I'll be in November.

Going to make the Mullins an offer they can't refuse for their Delahaye T145 Coupe. Just kidding, they don't sell, they buy.

But anyway - Furman's photography captures the essence of the style of cars from the era when style was everything.

OK, so I just finished work and dashed out to Bunnings to get new screws+bolts and a new drill bit. Took me 30mins to get these bad boys on. The grips on these metal pedals are awesome.

Here are some pictures:

Good job Quang.. Thats exactly how I drilled up the pedals.. It seemed to be the most appropriate considering the limited backing we have to play with..

I also replaced the gas pedal screws with shamfered screws to match.. Just had to cut the top two screws down to eliminate them scuffing the module behind the pedal.

Got a horse or two with the BMS drop in filter!!! May be two more with N55 midpipe going in a couple of week.

And that's all for Snow 1M as I can't imagine I will drive this little beast 10/10 on public roads and when I'm on the track, my skill isn't there to make full use of the power it has. So until the day I can harness and fully control this thing, drifting with grace, there's no point adding more. M power requires .
