  1. Mr. azlano sir…

    Can you give me your emel?i would like to ask you a few questions regarding the transmission system.this is for my final project. I really hope that you can help me sir..

    Regards..
    Zaki

  2. Zaki -> i’m sorry but i don’t think i can help you wrt the transmission information you require because i’m not a powertrain engineer.

  3. “If you can’t go fast with 90hp, 900hp won’t help you” – some guy named Bob Hall who used to work at Mazda.

    He sounds like a right idiot to me, though the quote sort of makes sense. Lah.

    Matt

  4. “Speed never kills. Becoming stationary all of a sudden, that’s what gets you.”

    -Jeremy Clarkson 😀

    “Impossible is always the untried”

    -some old Ujang mag 😀

    “Rather than thinking how to die beautifully, isn’t it better to live life beautifully until the end?”

    -Gintoki, main character of Gintama, a comedy + action anime. It’s my fav anime btw!! My avatar in fact, is the main villain in the anime —->

  5. Ah, moshikashite….u oso an otaku? eheheheh.

    what’s ur fav anime series? Aside from Gintama, I do love Last Exile, Blue Submarine no.6 and Ergo Proxy. A lot more actually, but those are some of the extraordinary ones that I cherish 😉 Btw, I forgot to tell the name of the guy in my avatar: Takasugi Shinsuke-sama!!

    Hannah Tan club? Is it a club formed since she became Animax’s ambassador (face, host or w/e u call it)?

    I rly wish I can learn Japanese very quickly, so that I can then start watching animes, doramas (I watch Jap dorama too!!) n read Shonen Jump easily ^_^

  6. tokmoh -> to be honest, i’m not crazy about anime but i have friends & colleagues who are just nuts about it. i do like the artistic side of it though… i was in Tokyo last year with an anime-crazed friend and he was delirious.

  7. Ahahah, Tokyo is definitely home for anime fans, just like how Detroit is home to (American especially) car manufacturers 😉 . In Japan, they even hv professional cosplayers ie wearing costumes which mimic characters from anime!! I can’t imagine wearing it around anime n manga expos as well as photographing for mags n all can be some ppl’s way of earning income!! Oh, bt then, that’s modelling, eheheheh.

    Indeed, Japanese makes the best cartoon in the world (compared to American/British style) artistically, sadly though, they’re unable to channel that energy to automotive world. Japanese cars are seldom as inspirational or emotional as a European (generally lah), which I suppose home for automotive designers like u 😉 . It’s great then that u’ve been exposed to their world through ur attachment wit Lotus, rite?

  8. if i have a proton exora and want convert it to look like the exora Prestige on the outside, how much will it cost me?
