There is a word for that...... "female"

in old world terms.. a Flibbertigibbet !

Amiga should be priority, but I understand how other interests can be just as rewarding and time consuming, RC aeroplanes and helicopters share my hobby resources.

Congrats! Thats actually damn good score. Had two of those Pioneer subs in a CRX. Now trying out the Sundown Audio brand and see where it takes me. What amp(s) did you have? and was the score a legal score? (termlab on the passenger side, doors/windows closed)

yeah, dB drag legal, street stock class.

sensor on the dash, car sealed up.

amp is a ReSponse 1500watt (only ever sold in Australia)... really wasn't expecting 146.6dB, plus its a 40Hz... was the loudest on the day, at the lowest frequency, in the lowest class...

LOL, AJ you show all the signs of a mid-20's male living at home with very decent disposable income!

Here's my other Hobby:

http://users.adam.com.au/djorlc/3rd_HT_Equipment_a.html
http://users.adam.com.au/djorlc/3rd_HT_Today_a.html

I need to update the pic's tho since getting the Massive cabinet (I designed it in Sketchup and had my local furniture maker build it) - only problem with this hobby is the expense and since my little daughter came along 13 months ago, I havent had the money to feed my upgraditis.

Have a Tamiya original Frog, partial restore at this point. electronic speed controller FUTABA MC330CR, boomerang wheels all round etc etc, Also have a Tamiya plasma edge low end buggy.

Have had the frog since I was a kid.

Home theatre, have a PIONEER HTZ818BD. Not high end but does the job. For a TV have a 47" Philips LCD, downside it's not 3D but can't afford to upgrade anymore.

Also love cars, although don't have the money really. Have a 2002 Nissan Stagea Axis Autech silver :-)

Collect records, also collect PC hardware. I like to save computer gear, if anyone wants anything PC let me know.

Hoping to start another new hobby and learn to play the drums but and also want a pool table but all wishes due to my current situation.

Still need to get around to buying a house but here in New Zealand prices are extreme so another dream :-)

home theatre isn't a hobby
thats like saying watching tv is a hobby...

My 1989 KE Laser, second owner, was completely stock and original when I got it... not anymore...



Which I MAY have added:
KYB shocks
Kingsprings
SR20 stock rims
Nolathane Bushes
Whiteline rear swaybar
B6T engine (thats the efi turbo engine btw )
EFI fuel tank and lines
Front Mount Intercooler
2.5inch Exhaust
Adjustable steering column
Turbo front brakes
Rear disc brakes
Transmission cooler (yes, its still auto)

Plenty of silver monitors from back in the day, dont know if thats much better. Got my old LG at my sisters house on there PC. 4:3 with a low native resolution, should match well. All though it is 19'' which will probobly still make games look a bit chunky.

Sold my miggy before I got in to modding cars, you would probably like our SP20 sitting in the shed. Now how can I fit my L34 into it? I also still have one RC car (a Hornet) and a Chopper
