FH2 Storm Island: Range Rover revisited

rr

As you may recall, this is the Range Rover that is part of Forza Horizon 2's NAPA Chassis Car Pack and yes, I used that car in previous championships a few moments ago so why am I driving it again? It's simple because since I'm in a middle of my Storm Island journey, I used this car again to test out its offroad capability that most offroaders do when things get dirty.

Since the championship that I'll be taking involves more of SUVs like this, I decided to try it out and continue my road to the Island Finale.

rr (2)

I am not changing my low-vis Eli Ayase design that I just made for the Range Rover, which is very fitting for this full-size SUV, but instead I fettled with the performance by adding specially-made parts suitable for Storm Island challenges such as rally tires, rally suspension, and low-range gearbox. Right now, this is much slower than my previous one I used while on the road to the Horizon finale but it feels so offroad-capable.

Now, it's time for the show!



Elichika may not forgive me for what I did but the Range Rover is very happy, knowing that its off-road capabilities have been put to greater use.

With the Range Rover wins the championship I've just signed up, my road to the Island Finale is drawing nearer and the journey continues...

The Mad Max Concepts that never were

Mad Max Fury Road has finally hit theaters and the iconic Ford Falcon "Interceptor" has once again revving its "last of the V8s" to the hearts and minds of moviegoers and car enthusiasts alike but aside from the added rave, there are some rants going on about the film and also this...how come those Mad Max Concepts we saw four years ago never saw the light of day?

2011 Ford Mad Max Concept

2011 Ford Mad Max Concept

It all started back at the 2011 Australian International Motor Show in Melbourne when Ford Australia and Top Gear Australia held a competition where thousands of car enthusiasts from all over the Pacific where they have to vote which will be the next Mad Max Interceptor and there goes the two possible candidates. These two would-be candidates for the Mad Max Interceptor have designed by Ford and Top Gear AU to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max franchise.

The first one was designed by Nima Nounan and the second one is designed by Simon Brook. These two Interceptors are the product of their endless imagination, cutting-edge technology, and cunning weaponry. They are equipped with industrial-strength weaponry like tasers mounted in the front of the cars to fend off enemy bikers. It also comes with a titanium-lined body shell to interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred off the tires from hostile vehicles.

The staff from Ford Australia's R&D spent numerous hours which gained a strong media following in other countries and Top Gear AU has followed the progress of the would-be future Interceptors from the concept stage to the Computer Aided Designed. They've even documented it in the magazine where readers being asked to vote on which concept they prefer.

Sadly, with Top Gear Australia gone and Ford's Australian division will cease their production operations within a few years, these two Mad Max Interceptor concepts never seen the light of day but at least, these product of their imaginations are worthy of being a tribute to Mad Max's iconic car that fights to its last drop of petrol.

Mad Max Fury Road


The Mad Max franchise captures the heartless minds of every petrolheads since the first one came in the late 1970's because of its unique storyline, ruthless cast of characters, terrifying vehicles that turned into instruments of death in the dystopian future, and of course, the adrenaline delivered from the first three movies. Amazingly, it was the Aussie-built Ford Falcon that wowed our hearts and minds and when everyone talked about the classic Ford Falcon, they can only think of the Mad Max movies.

After thirty years, at last, the story of Mad Max has been reborn to the new generation of car lovers and movie lovers alike, hoping that one day, their cars will be just like what they saw in this film, packed with terrifying stunts, terrifying cast of characters, unique storyline that traces its roots from the original, and a new Mad Max in the form of actor Tom Hardy.

Like in the original Mad Max movies, it's set in a dystopian future where humanity has declined and people are now behaving like animals, fighting to survive the wasteland. This movie also stars Mighty Joe Young's Charlize Theron as Furiosa and Warm Bodies' Nicholas Hoult as the maniacal Nux, among many others.

Keeping true to the past installments, the recipe for destructive carnage still remains but now with some added explosions that will keep moviegoers wanted for more. "What a lovely day" it is but despite its added thrills for the newborn action thriller flick, there are some questionable stuff going on around here.

Past Mad Max films feel more Australian because of its outback setting fit enough to portray a post-nuclear wasteland but now, it doesn't feel like it set on the outback anymore but rather a more distant landscape which is suitable for the wasteland that is a lot different than the past films. Outback or not, the different landscape didn't really matter in the storyline that is worth terrifying than the past installments.

Here's the thing. If you watch this film for the first time, make sure that this is your first and last thing you watched because this film feels more traumatizing as disaster flicks but if you're brave and looking for some thrills, for you, this film is the epitome of hardcore and once you finished watching this film, you would really come back to see it again for some more.

In conclusion, this film is not suitable for killjoys or buzzkills but for people who had some fun times, this is the one to watch. You can count on it.

My rating: 4.7 out of 5.

The Honda Shuttle's predecessors

2016 Honda Shuttle

With the launch of the all-new Honda Shuttle, let's take a trip down memory lane to examine some of its predecessors. Little did you know that the Shuttle name in the history of Honda was first used on its station wagon variant from the third-generation Civic? Hmm? Anyway, time now for the history lesson before getting to know more about the new Shuttle from Honda.

Honda Civic Shuttle (AJ/AK/AR) (1983-1987) - In the 20th of October, 1983, Honda launched a five door estate version of the third-generation Civic. There's also a commercial version of the Shuttle called the Civic Pro which is suitable for business use in the Japanese domestic market. It was available with a 1.3L SOHC CVCC engine developing 80PS of power and a 1.5L SOHC CVCC engine developing 90 or 100PS of power. Available gearboxes, depending on the variant, are either a 4-speed manual, 5-speed manual, a 3-speed auto, or a 4-speed auto.
Honda Civic Shuttle (1983-1987)

Honda Civic Shuttle (EF2/3/4/5) (1987-1996) - Based on the 4th-generation Civic, the Shuttle model comes with a 4-link double wishbone suspension as well as a hyper 16-valve engine with something called Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system. IIt was launched in Japan since 1987 and it comes with either a 1.5L SOHC or a 1.6L SOHC engine, mated with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. In 1996, it was replaced by the Orthia and then later in 2004, the Airwave.

Honda Civic Shuttle (1987-1996)

Honda Fit Shuttle (2011-2015) - Based on the second-generation Fit, the Shuttle name has returned as the bigger version of the Fit. Originally, it should have been launched in Japan since mid-March 2011 but due to the March 11 quake and tsunami, the launch has been pushed to June 2011. It's available only with a 1.5L i-VTEC engine, in either a normal one or in a hybrid powertrain.


Honda Fit Shuttle (2011-2015)

The new Honda Shuttle is now available in Japan and it begins at 1,690,000 for the normal petrol variant while the hybrid model starts at 1,990,000 Yen.

Honda Shuttle

The Shuttle name in the history of Honda has been around since the Civic Shuttle and the Fit Shuttle and for the newest model, the all-new Honda Shuttle, which is an MPV based on the latest Honda Fit hatchback, is all about practicality and efficiency. Just everything what an average Japanese family would need for their imminent summer holiday.

2016 Honda Shuttle

First and foremost, the design for the new Shuttle is an utterly questionable one. At the front view, it looks like it's not adequate for a family-friendly people carrier because by the looks of it, it looks like surgeons gave an ugly man a big, ridiculous, lips. That's so nuts for someone with a horseface and then we get at the back which looks like it came from one of its chief rivals, the Toyota Wish. The old Fit Shuttle is like performing a surgery on a young woman's body and then resulted to an oversized buttocks but the new Shuttle is now becoming more like...Diego's. Yep, that guy from BG but atlit...

2016 Honda Shuttle interior

2016 Honda Shuttle interior

Because the new Shuttle is derived from the long line of Fit relatives including the Vezel crossover, the Grace sedan, and the recently-launched Jade MPV, which has a better-looking design than the Shuttle, the interior looks more similar to its cousins. You get seats for five people, some luggage space for your essentials, and then, the added compartment in the form of a storage unit hidden underneath the loading bay. Now that's convenient if you're going on a fishing trip with your kids at a lake.

2016 Honda Shuttle

The Shuttle only comes with 1.5L i-VTEC engine producing 132PS of power, 155Nm of torque, and 21.8km/L of fuel economy while connected with a CVT gearbox but if you want more range, you can opt with the hybrid variant which comes with the 7-speed dual clutch transmission, 22kW electric motor, and a li-ion battery, resulting to an incredible fuel economy of 34.0km/L, comfortably beating the Toyota Prius Alpha by a long shot. Running on electric motor alone, it produces more torque than its petrol engine.

You can have either a front-wheel drive if you're a casual civilian or if you're feeling under the weather, a 4WD model is at hand. Either way, you can expect the added quality and stability thanks to its amplitude reactive dampers. It's great for city use or in the suburbs but in open roads, it doesn't feel its sporty character from within. Overall, it's boring if you're on a trip in, let's just say, Tagaytay or Subic or Antipolo. It maybe quite a road trip car but for fun factor, it's worth a misery.

As for value of money, the Shuttle begins at 1,690,000 for the normal petrol variant while the hybrid model starts at 1,990,000 Yen so on paper, it's more affordable to own than the Prius Alpha and imagine how much money you save instead of buying the bigger Prius. Besides, with all that double clutch malarkey, this is much more engaging to drive than the Prius Alpha but rest assured, this is not the kind the car you want to own if you're still single or in a relationship. If you're married and had few kids, this is ideal for you or if you do have friends from high school, this is the better choice. Although the design looks more of a horseface to me, the new Shuttle might just be the ideal car for the Japanese family preparing for their imminent summer holiday.

Available colors: White Orchid Pearl, Alabaster Silver Metallic, Tinted Silver Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Midnight Blue Beam Metallic, Mystic Garnet Pearl, Milano Red, and Gold Brown Metallic.

Mercedes-AMG C63 (W205)

As AMG saloons are getting turbocharged, it seems that the C63 has been the only saloon left behind because of its natural aspiration 6.2L V8 engine that deserves no explanation. Sure, most saloons got stuck with the soon-to-be-replaced 5.5L V8 BiTurbo or V12 BiTurbo for the S65 but for the C63, it just like a boy who is the only boy in the sibling of girls. Happily, however, there's a brand new version and it's going to be more promising than ever...sorta.

2015 Mercedes-AMG C63

2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate

For starters, the V8 engine is now turbocharged but due to the trends of downsizing, it's now a 4.0L V8 BiTurbo engine like you get in the Mercedes-AMG GT sportscar. The old C63 AMG can do 0-100kph in 4.5 seconds but in the range-topping S model, the 0-100kph is now four seconds! The top speed is electronically limited to 250kph but if you opt for the AMG Driver's Package, you can have the limit raised to 290kph. That's more than what the old C63 would do.

So, how did they managed to get that much speed at so little engine of that size? Like we studied from the AMG GT, it's all about science and determination and for the conservative few, the new model has transformed from the whole "what a lovely day" insanity to a "what a nice day" sublimeness and it's now becoming more mature as what teenagers get during puberty.

On the normal roads, it feels as civilized as what a luxury car do in a day-to-day basis. It's nicer to drive, it's comfortable, and it's less showy than the old one. On the open roads, it works well like a gran tourer with four doors. And on the track, this car really wants to play idol with its dynamic character that wows the crowd on the stage. It's all thanks to its AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension and the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT which allows the driver to select different driving modes depending on the situation and when in its max attack mode or RACE mode, you can really make this car dance like a superstar on stage but it can be as thrilling as seeing disturbing images and videos shared on Facebook for no reason. It's like when you start Facebook, all you can start seeing is posts that are too boring to read and then when you keep digging deeper, you are encountering the most disturbing ones that posters want to share it to almost everyone. That sounds creepy but you can really feel your heart pumping faster than you think.

It is a very thrilling ride but since it's a four-door saloon (or a five-door estate should you choose the more spacious C63 Estate), it feels more lively to drive with on the normal roads. It's even great to drive one at your nearest groceries but most people will think you're more of a blockhead rather than being an ordinary salaryman. On the inside, it's like you're in charge of the office with everything at your disposal.

The base version of the AMG C63 starts at 76,101 Euros for the saloon and 77,767 Euros for the Estate version but the S version begins with 84,371 Euros for the saloon and 86,037 Euros for the Estate version. Yes, that sounds a lot of money and they're more expensive than the BMW M3 sedan or the Audi RS4 Avant but the performance for the new versions are well-balanced and that's something that these rivals clenching their teeth on and thanks to science, the new C63 is more of a gentlemen's feast served by a serial killer with his killer looks. Tasty...

Once again, the quake-struck Nepal has suffered another tremor as reports told that a M7.4 earthquake struck near Mount Everest in Nepal, just weeks after the more powerful quake destroyed numerous buildings in capital city Kathmandu and over eight thousand people died.

The USGS first reported that the quake, which struck 83km east of Kathmandu, had a magnitude of 7.1 before revising it to 7.4. The shockwaves from the quake felt across northern India, where buildings began swaying for over a minute and people began fleeing to the streets.

Forza Horizon 2: A slap on Europe's faces

z06

The all-new and more powerful Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 is the highlight of Forza Horizon 2's Alpinestars Car Pack, on sale now, and now you have two kinds of C7 Corvettes to choose from in-game.

z06 (3)

Based on the seventh-generation Corvette, the Z06 has now been helm as the most powerful car ever made by General Motors because of its new LT1 supercharged 6.2L V8 engine which produces 650HP of power and same amount for torque output, that's more than what you get from the old C6 ZR1 and that's about as similar as the McLaren 650S that I just tried a couple of months ago.

Apart from its added power, the new Z06 features most of the components from its C7.R racecar such as carbon fiber roof and hood, dry sump oiling system, hydroformed aluminum frame, adjustable rear spoiler wickerbill, composite floor panels, and titanium intake valves and connecting rods. With stuff like these, the C7 Z06 transforms the Corvette that is fully capable enough to take on Europe's finest sportscars into a Corvette that now behaves not just a muscle car but also a supercar or a hypercar at the same time.

z06 (2)

Corvettes are always known to be the king of American sportscars and claiming that can take on Europe's finest but they are sometimes a letdown because of its American-ness. With the new Z06 though, that's a totally different story because while this is strictly an American-made car, it doesn't feel at all like an American car because it's been honed in the world's toughest racetracks including the Nurburgring and Le Mans, resulting to a half-decent supercar that deserves a slap on Europe's face and I do mean a big slap.

Anyway, enough chitchat because I am giving the new Z06 the run of its life on Forza Horizon 2 and because of my Horizon champion status, like everyone else, I can choose which location to start the championship of my choosing so I'd pick Nice Massena for a championship the new Z06 might like but first, some makeovers have to be done to keep it as race-prepped as possible.

z06 (4)

Now, I know what you're thinking but please give them a chance because 2015 is not just Forza's 10th birthday, it's also The iDOLM@STER so I gave my C7 Z06 some iM@S credentials that suits its personality and look! Iori Minase!

Yes, I know, I was planning to made that design in time for Iori's birthday but I'm doing this to win back every petrolheads' hearts because they're starting to shy away from the once petrolhead-loving 765PRO ALL STARS from THE iDOLM@STER and migrated to ╬╝'s from Love Live. Because this new Vette is a match for anyone bearing the title of "Iori Minase's Producer", this should do the trick. Anyway, with the C7 Z06 ready to slap some opponents' faces, it's time for the road trip to Nice.



And there goes the championship the C7 Z06 had entered...



Success! Wait, there's another Horizon Finale coming up? Anyway, looks like the C7 Z06 has finally proven its point that it can slap on any opponents' faces without warning and I have strong belief that we are trying to win the spectators' hearts from seeing this design that I made.

So, what's my next move? Only time will tell as the journey continues...

The continuing prominence of the Silver Arrows at the F1 2015 season still blazes on in the highly technical Circuit de Catalunya in Spain but this time, it's the German ace Nico Rosberg that steals the spotlight having managed to cross the line 16 seconds ahead of his teammate Lewis Hamilton while Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel was placed 3rd.

In the driver standings, Hamilton's still leading by 111 points while Rosberg's 20 points behind and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel is 3rd place overall by 80 points.

The next race is at Monaco on the 24th of May, 2015.

Darla meets Vice and Negi


Darla is Kris Aquino's sidekick during her weekday trips on Kris TV and she's...what Negi is to Vice Ganda on Gandang Gabi Vice. Last night, everyone's favorite assistant on Kris TV appeared to meet up with Vice Ganda as well as his sidekick, Negi.

The Cute Wall (Volume Six)

Now, the moment of truth is time because it's now time to do...THE CUTE WALL!



(applause)

How great it is that we're doing this segment again after so many days. So, who's first?


Oshawott
It's this little fella from Pokemon. It's Oshawott! Isn't it cute?

Yes, it is kinda cute for a critter who wears so many makeup to impress almost anyone. I mean look at his face, it's all white! It's like he's spending all night putting too much facial powder without even knowing!

(audience laughing)

Well...okay, I'll give you that but did you know that Ash had one in the BW anime?

Uhh...

Anyway, he's a water-type Pokemon and he's one of the starters in the BW video games like Snivy and Tepig. He's got that scalchop that he always uses as a weapon or to be more precise, his Razor Shell attack.

Razor Shell?! Does he know how to use it well?

Well, not most of the time. Oshawott gets barbecued most of the time when he gets first.

(audience laughing)

Much like you. You always jump into conclusions recklessly.

Oh, all right then. So, where should we put Oshawott?

(indistinct chatter)

I bet Oshawott should be at the...well, NAKAKAGIGIL because with such cute face, there's no arguing about its pretty looks when Oshawott tries to look...like a pretty girl or boy.

(audience laughing)

Okay, NAKAKAGIGIL it is then. Now, will you excuse me, I need to get to the loo for a while...

Hurry up, then, because I'll be featuring another cute character. Oh look!

Minions


(applause)

Now, who would invited those minions here? Oh wait, I do speak minion here so...(gibberish)

(gibberish)

(audience laughing)

(gibberish)

(gibberish)

(gibberish)

(gibberish)

...what's going on here? Oh my! Who are those?

They're Minions. Gru's Minions from the Despicable Me movies. Looks like most of the Minions wanted have their spot in the Cute Wall but sadly there's only four places. Okay, I know what to do with those...

Several hours later...

Okay, now we have four minions. So...(gibberish)?

(gibberish)

(audience laughing)

Right, so what we're going to do is to tell those minions to dress up as cute as possible.

And then, we're going to rate them how cute they really are?

Precisely! All right little banana brains, time to dress up!

Several hours later...

So, Minion A, I think that's a very good outfit but it needs some little work so I'll have to send you to the NOT CUTE sport. As for Minion B, well, looks like he's having problems with his outfit. Sadly, I had to put you in the SERIOUSLY NOT CUTE sport. Now, we have Minion C and Minion D. Looks like it's going to be a heated battle, eh?

Yes and both of them are in their cutest but there can only be only one so if I were going to choose which one...I'll go for Minion C. Congratulations, your NAKAKAGIGIL spot has reserved for you!

(applause)

Awesome! Looks like we've picked the cutest Minion of them all in this segment. Right, time to add someone new to the board.

Star Butterfly

Who on Earth is that?!

Star Butterfly! She's from that new show titled Star vs. the Forces of Evil!

Is that really Star Butterfly? Because by the looks of her, she's like Mabel Pines who is over 9000.

(audience laughing)

Over 9000?

9000% in craziness, ugliness, and...uh...well, that's about it. She's crazier than Gravity Falls' Mabel Pines!

(audience laughing)

Okay, then how can you describe how crazy or ugly she is?

If you look at Mabel Pines, you can see that her ugliness comes with her braces and her goofy attitude but when you look at Star, she's more of a hideous wreck than Mabel Pines. Just look at her! Headband with some devil horns on it, magic wand that looks like they stole from an anime I once knew, the same Mabel Pines stupidity. Oh My G!

(audience laughing)

Looks like I would rather get smooched by Mabel rather than Star...well, I wouldn't mind getting chased by Star or Mabel because...

(clears throat) So, where would you put her Mr. I-Don't-Like-Ugly-Ladies?

I tell you where we should put Star...

(audience laughing)

There you go! SERIOUSLY NOT CUTE because she's as hideous as Mabel and no girl would ever want to be like these two.

You're always spouting about things you don't understand eh?

(indistinct chatter)

(POW!)

Ow! What was that?! And how did...Star ended up in...the NAKAKAGIGIL spot?

Told ya. Don't underestimate Star. She's one heck of a buttkicker when it comes to kicking bad guys' butts with her klutzy magic powers. Before you know it, she hit you with a narwhal.

(audience laughing)

Narnia?

No. Narwhal. Nar-whal. Narwhal blast!

This girl's so G-R-R-R...

(audience laughing)

She also hit you with a heart attack after that.

Okay. Let's leave her in the top spot she deserves. So, who's next?

Serena's Pancham
(ooohh)

Hold on...is that Pancham?

Yes but more specifically, Serena's Pancham from Pokemon XY!

Oh dear, looks like the Cute Wall is constantly flooded with every cute Pokemon known but anyway, I love Pancham so much because, he's cute and tough at the same time.

Okay, I agree with you but there's a problem.

Why? What's the problem?

Chespin's in the NAKAKAGIGIL board and if we put Serena's Pancham on that board, we're expecting a big feud between them.

(audience laughing)

I see! That's because Chespin and Serena's Pancham don't like each other. So, any suggestions?

Well, to be safe...CUTE. We'll put this little panda bear on the CUTE spot so he won't start a fight with Chespin that spells trouble in the board.

(audience laughing)

Good thinking. So, who else we got?

Uh...that's pretty much it, I'm afraid.

(audience laughing)

That's it?

Yep. No more. Oh wait! There's someone else!

Who is it?

Amethyst

Eek! Amethyst! Why did you brought her here?!

To try to explain what I'm on about. She's from Steven Universe, right? She's a crystal gem like Garnet and Pearl. And guess what?!

What?!

She's the perfect epitome of annoyance!

(audience laughing)

But...I don't find her to be annoying...

Oh yes she is. Imagine if I put Amethyst, Star, and Mabel in front of the cockometer, can you guess who can cause the cockometer to explode the most?

Uhh... Let me guess...Can we use the cockometer?

Okay. First, let's have Mabel. So, how would Mabel explode the Cockometer?

(BOOM!)

Her brace-filled ugliness blew the cockometer in less than three seconds. So, what about Star?

(POW!)

Star's Narwhal Blast destroyed the cockometer faster than Mabel's ugly face in less than a second. Now, how about Amethyst?

Several minutes later...

Clearly, this will take time so let's call her less annoying than the other two.

(audience laughing)

Sadly, I don't find Amethyst to be annoying and I'm a bit wrong but better still, I know a place we'll put Amethyst.

Where?

NOT CUTE.
