    *lenny: you couldnt take a person by what he said. you are in our domain and last time i checked we can talk freely and openly. We're not bad guys but we do joke a lot amongst each other together or through this thread. Its like you overhearing street car racers sometimes kid about underbones. With us, we just like comparing, sometimes real other times just plain jokes, our vehicles with its class. Im sorry if it offends you or irks you that one of our officers typed something that was somewhat of an inside talk (something that club members understand).

    But even if that is the case you can see that we're still here to help out and we will still do but hey we're a fun and very active club so just be advised that we also KID around A LOT. If that's not your kind of thing I know if not me then most of us will understand. After all most of us are guys and some are really the every-minute-of-the-day serious type.

    is it ok if i smile like this? or or should it be left to the kiddies? (thats a joke)

    Now I bought strada gls without abs, of course I want abs but not that much that I have to shell out 200k bucks more... I guess I could live with it after all it will not be used for high speed cruising cause I'm planning to upgrade it for offroading, pero a year from now pa kasi hinuhulugan ko pa.
    I have driven vehicles with ABS and/or EBD and managed to activate those features (on those so equipped) only on very rare instances. My current RAV4 is equipped with ABS. The ABS activated only about 4 times in the 2 years I have owned it, and that was when I was driving in snow and ice (I currently live in Canada) and at speeds lower than 40kph. You'll notice some vibrations, often accompanied by a grating sound, in the brake pedal when the ABS activates.

    I've never managed to have the ABS do its work in our other cars in Manila, despite all the hard driving I did.

    Sure, ABS is nice to have and very handy when it is needed. But its absence should not be the ONLY deciding factor when choosing a car. Ok naman tayo even before they were introduced, basta ingat lang palagi at wag maging kaskasero.

    It seems I already experienced that on my fort when I slammed my brake on a sandy road

    Huh??? The "panalo by 3 cars length" was the from Botchi of TGP and only echoed by Patriarch when someone asked who won. You might wanna confront Botchi rather than Patriarch

    Now for the "yung kumuha ng vid may cancer na" was a funny comment kasi nga naman mausok yung isang pickup

    I'd rather have a club president who has a sense of humor rather than a "too serious" one ( di pa ako member sumisipsip na nyahahahaha).

    Anyone tried Eastern Petroleum diesel? they claimed its EURO IV compliant and is certified 50ppm or 90% less sulfur.
