Okay, go here (http://www.ferrari.it/vetture/oggi.e/360modchallenge.html)

Is that actually a car, or is it a model? It looks like a model to me.

a model... look @ the wheels! but it probably isn't because why would Ferrari post a pic of a model?

Exactly! I know there are models that look exactly like that (challenge with same paint/decals), but I just couldn't figure out whey Ferrari would do that.

It is a model, it's the 360 Challenge by Bburago. I have the normal one and I saw the exact same car at the place. If you look close enough, It dosen't have the disc brake calipers. It also looks too fake.

That is actually a picture of a real Ferrari 360 Challenge car, it is NOT a picture of the bburago version. That picture was taken directly from the 2000 Ferrari brochure. The picture in the brochure is bigger, so you can tell that it is actually a real car. I was able to see a poster sized version of this picture when I took a tour last September of the Ferrari Factory in Maranello, Italy. In the poster sized version it is very easy to see that the car is real. I believe the tour guide said the picture was taken in their wind tunnel building at the factory.

I also own the bburago version of this car and, trust me, it doesn't look this good! Don't get me wrong, bburago makes great models and own about 50 of them, but they don't look that good. You can see the brake calipers if you look closely, the challenge rims just make them difficult too see.

Hope this info helps.

If it's a model, it's a Tamiya!:D
Otherwise it could be real.

You'll have to trust me on this one, it is a real Ferrari challenge car.

See my previous post for info on how I know this.

I concur with you, fletch. That there is the real deal. I don't know about you all, but I like the F355 Challenge better'n than the 360.

Yeah, the 355 kicks ass.

I played before at an Electronics store and I forgot it was a Manual and I was stuck in 1st doing 15mph around the track and then I found out how to shift.

Do you know if they make it for PS1? i would love to have it. i already have need for speed porsche unleashed and high stakes. they are both awesome.

Porsche

Not sure, it may be a Dreamcast only game but, they stopped Dreamcast production because it was unpopular so now you can get one easy. What's the fastest you've gone in NFS5?

S Brake

on high stakes i've gotten just above 190 mph in either the very modded 911 or the mclaren gtr. in porsche unleashed i got going 204 in one of the racecars that i earned doing the factory driver.

Porsche

I won't gloat then. I tak the game way to seriously and I've noticed problems with some the racing dynamics and speeds. Iv'e managed to get a Modded 935/78 up to 378 km/h or roughly 220 mph or more. I got a few others over 350 km/h which is the game's limit for non-internet cars. BTW, the absolute best course for high speed runs in the Autobahn backwards, just gunit after you get out of the tunnel, pass the toll booth, slow down a very little bit and take the central path, Slow down a little bit more as you make the long left and then stand on the gas as you make the large right and then head into the smaller tunnel and you should fly out doing at least 330 km/h in a stock GT1.

Which game are you talking about, high stakes? that is the only one i have besides porsche unleashed. the cops can't touch me either, i rule!

Oh, Ya, I was talking about NFS5. I've played NFS4 a few times. I am a little disappointed with the Ai in NFS5, the Cops can accelerate faster than a Dragster and they pull in front of you and stop. I have a video on the game of me cutting into a cop while going over a jump and all you can see is me fyling over the jump and the cop car barrel rolling in the background.

hey how does all that highschool shit called in the states..
like sophmore, nobody uses those terms here, except some teachers and i don't know which one's for which, like what grade is sophmore? and why don't you just say like gr. 12... it's easier

Porsche
09-08-2001, 08:38 AM
Gr. 09= Freshman
Gr. 10= Sophmore
Gr. 11= Junior
Gr. 12= Senior
Gr. 13= OAC (In Ontario)

We don't have a 13th grade, is that like some class to prep you for college? i thought thats what highschool did but apparently i'm wrong.

Okay here's the scoop, Yes Snowboarder that's what 13th grade is here right now. i am the first generation of Students however that onlys goes to 12th Grade.They dropped it because they said it was essentially the first year of College/Univeristy. I'm pissed that they did this because I have to do my 5 Years of School in 4 Years until it eventually is merged in. So right now I'm in Grade 11 Course, but we are learning about half of the stuff the Grade 12's are learning. Pisses me off!

that's what i'm in born: January, 1985... but i'm still doin it in 5 years, we can choose if we want it in 4 or 5 years.... i'd rather spread out my classes and have like 3 spares a day in gr. 12 and OAC

damn new curriculem is hard ass, i fuckin hate it... especially since i'm a dumbass.... I think i have ADD or somethin, i can't concentrate on anything
