No hacking. No Powerups, except shield and/or juggernaut to get rid of magnets or traffic in your way. You cheat, you get disqualified, simple as that! If you set a blistering lap time, we will require you to make a video of you racing round the track fairly. If not, we'll assume you cheated, and you'll get disqualified. And that's it.

Need For Speed World: Spot the Transporters

Spot the Transporters
Remember "Spot the Devs" where you guys had to find the devs in exclusive cars? Well say hello to "Spot the Transporters", where you'll be finding me and 16 other fellow racers of Transporter Motorsports. The rules are simple. It's just like Spot the Devs only you'll be finding the Transporter Motorsports crew. This Saturday, January 21, 2012 from 12:00 PM (USA EST) to 2:00 PM (USA EST), we'll be out and about in NFS World. Drivers will be starting at famous spots such as the Golf Course, Rosewood College, the Stadium, the Boardwalk, Central Square, and the Turnpike. Find one of us, take a pic, send it to, and you'll be randomly selected to win the ultra-exclusive Nissan GT-R SpecV. A lot of people have asked for this monster, and since it's not in the car dealer yet, I figure this would be the best chance to get one for your own. I'm only giving 20 away to the 20 lucky winners so find us fast. We'll be on Channel EN 1 (/join en 1) cruising about if you want to find us. All entries must be submitted to the given e-mail before 11:59 PM EST on Saturday or you will be disqualified. Have fun, be fast, and just try and find me.

Here are the IGNs

- PRAS26
- HELL31

Good luck!

Need For Speed World: Hatchback Racing Series

Need For Speed World: Hatchback Racing Series
Alright everyone! Since the release of the new Ford Focus RS and other hatchbacks in this game, I think it's time to see who can handle there's better. Presenting the Hatchback Racing Series, hosted by me. With 3 to 5 door cars with turbochargers ranging from 112 to 500 horsepower, it's amazing how much space you can save in the boot while traveling at speeds of over 200 MPH. The rules are simple: you may only use these hatchbacks to participate:

Tier 1:
1. Mazdaspeed 3
2. VW Scirocco
3. VW Golf GTI Mk. 1

Tier 2:
1. Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro
2. Ford Escort RS Cosworth
3. Ford Focus RS
4. Renault Mégane RS
5. Subaru Impreza WRX STI (Hatchback)
6. VW Golf R32

The hatchbacks in this game are powerful, fast, and most importantly, grippy. To enter with your hatchback of choice, set the fastest overall time in either Tier at Brooks Street. A combination of precision, speed, and cornering, Brooks Street is the best place to hone your racing skills. Single Player or Multiplayer: it doesn't matter. Once you've set your fastest overall time, message or e-mail me ( a screen pic of the actual time. I'll have a doc set up with the current fastest times soon. The winner of either Tier will get a special prize courtesy of EA. No speedhackers, no cheaters, no powerups (nitrous, slingshot, traffic magnets, the lot). You cheat, you get disqualified, and you get banned. Get ready! The Hatchback Racing Series starts tomorrow and ends next Tuesday. Get your hatchback and your racing shoes cuz this is gonna be one turbocharged battle!

Update: So it turns out that Ling is actually on leave til the 27th of November, and she'll provide the codes for the cars that you'll win if you come first. So, I'm extending the racing series to Tuesday, November 29th. Also, new rules: if you set a blistering time round Brooks Street that looks suspicious, you're gonna have to show me a video to prove that you're not cheating.

Update 2 (Contest Now Closed): Well the Hatchback Racing Series has come to a close. I want to thank everyone for entering, but there can only be two winners, and those winners are Yohan Cario with his pro-tuned Megane RS and Дмитрий Меньков with his pro-tuned Golf GTI Mk.1. Congratulations you two on being the fastest of each Tier. A midst the criticism from whiners, you've shown me raw power and driving talent at Brooks Street. Tell me which car you want (Yohan = Tier 2) (Дмитрий = Tier 1), I shall inform Ling, and you shall have your prizes in about a week.

Born From Jets

2006 Saab Aero-X Concept

This car would've saved Saab if they had given it a chance. This is the Saab Aero-X, and although it was made 5 years ago, it's still one of the best looking concept cars I've ever seen. Saab has always used the phrase "Born from Jets" to emphasize their cars as being precise, powerful, and refined for the common man's take. And this car? No exception. Especially, when you get into the cockpit.

Rising Roof
Supercars such as the Lamborghini Aventador, the McLaren MP4-12C, or the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG always provide the driver with a fancy way of getting into his car. When it comes to the Aventador or the McLaren, there are scissor doors that fold up rather than out. When it comes to the SLS, those enticing Gullwing doors makes it look like its flying. Even some luxury cars like the Rolls-Royce Ghost or the Phantom provide the driver/passenger with suicide doors to make people realize that he is a man of power. Saab want their drivers to feel like their flying, and they go by doing so with the Aero-X. You see, instead of the doors folding up, opening out, or going straight up, the whole roof plus the doors open and move towards the nose of the car, making it easy and fascinating for a driver to get in. And when you're in, the cabin seals shut, and you take off. It's like being in an F-15 Fighter Jet.

Concept Car Showroom
Now since it's inspired by a Jets, you would imagine that the Aero-X would be very fast, and it is. Under the hood is a 2.8-liter Twin-Turbocharged V6 that runs on E85 Ethanol producing 400 horsepower. 0 to 60 is done in 4.9 seconds and it will go on to a top speed of 155 MPH. The power from the jet-like engine is sent to all 4-wheels through a 7-speed sequential manual transmission operated from flappy paddles on the steering wheel. So yeah, it's a fast, good-looking, common man's sports car. And it would've made Saab drivers more exciting as well.

The Front Face
Alas, Saab refused point blank to put this road rocket into production. Why? It wasn't their cheap priority. Pity, it would've saved their company. Now, it's going bust with Spyker being sold to U.S. firms. If the Aero-X were to be sold as a production car now, it would've saved Saab from totat destruction. Why? Everyone loves a cool sports car, and Saab was becoming a reputable manufacturer with unique drivers driving them now. Unfortunately, all we can do now is dream. Dream that one day, this car will show up at an auction for us to at least drive it. Anyway, the Aero-X: built from Jets.

Need For Speed World: Aston Martin V12 Vantage

2011 Aston Martin V12 Vantage
It's the best car to be released in NFS World to date: the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. I just love this car for many things. First off, it's the best looking car in the game with sleek curves, a sexy rear end, awesome 19" shoes, and a lovely front nose. Second, it's the best car I've ever driven in this game. It has the grip of the 911 GT3 RS, but it isn't as crazy as it. It's composed, daft, punctual. It's like trying to do Le Mans in an old luxurious Bentley. Third, it's fast. It certainly gives the Porsche a run for its money. It's not the fastest car in the world, but it will make mincemeat out of most Tier 3 cars, including the M3 GTR. I've spent sometime reviewing this car to see what it's like. If you're a "Spot the Dev" winner, take a look at the videos below to see what your prize is like.

Need For Speed World: Porsche 911 GT3 RS Cop Edition

2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Cop Edition (Need For Speed World)
All of you racers out there who have the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Cop Edition, you might as well just sell it and ask for your money back. Why? Meet Porsche's Cop car, the 911 GT3 RS. Or, to put it in plain english, the fastest car in Need For Speed World. Period. With race car like grip, immense speed, and a cop car livery, it scares the pants off of BMW and Lamborghini drivers. Just make sure you keep your eyes on the road because this thing is crazy fast. Here are two new videos showcasing the craziness of this cop car of which you can get for just 6000 speedboost. It's the current speedking. Will there ever be a car to knock it off it's feet?

NFS Cred!

2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (Need For Speed World)
Wow! Have I received some street cred this week! Due to my excessive car reviews and film making abilities, NFS has featured me on their website so racers can now me personally. Though of course, most you know that since you've either seen me race online or in my videos. Anyway, if you haven't checked out the article on me, you can read it here. I talk about my favorite cars, my favorite movies, and all the stuff I do to stay busy. I might be taking a short break, but coming back for more NFS World madness!

Crossing Over to Formula One

2011 Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel Edition
It's quite astonishing how much a young 24-year old German Formula One race driver has gained through driving with Infiniti and Red Bull. First, he won his first championship back in 2010. Second, he helped Kazunori Yamauchi develop the fastest ever race car in the Gran Turismo series. Third, he is the fastest F1 driver to do a lap on the Top Gear Test Track. And now, it seems he has his own branded car from Infiniti. Debuting this month at the Frankfurt Motor Show is the Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel Edition. Basically, what Infiniti has done is take a regular FX50S, and through some persuasion from young Vettel, added some engine upgrades, suspension upgrades, a new bodykit, fancy wheels, and better performance. Infiniti claims the crossover will do 186 MPH. That's as fast as Jaguar XKR-S. If it's that fast, then I won't be surprised to see either a 400 or 500 horsepower 5.0-liter V8 engine under the bonnet. There are two problems with it though: 1. It's not ready yet. 2. Infiniti plan on only making one. So, if you're interested in having a car by Sebastian Vettel, you may to wait towards the future.

Need For Speed World: Personality Against Brute Force

2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition (Need For Speed World)
So, the guys of NFS World were at Gamescom in Germany last week, which made it perfect for them to release three new German cars for the game. First up, there's the Porsche Cayman S Treasure Hunt which makes hunting for gems much easier for those struggling to get some money. Next is the heavy Audi RS4, of which I think is still not as good as an M3. And last, but certainly not least, Mercedes-Benz enters NFS World with the brutal SLR McLaren 722 Edition. I'll say it as of now: it isn't the fastest thing in World. But, if you're looking for a Tier 3 tank besides the Viper that can barrage throw cops with ease, this is definitely the car. I made three videos showcasing all three cars with some extras of course. All 3 feature a dude from World-Garage who has some awesome skill when it comes to driving. Check them out!
