  1. I just got a Sportage SX (w/ Turbo)

     

    It is a great car... the only issues I have had with it is the awkwardly low back window (you cant see the face of someone in a taller truck or suv behind you at a stop light) and the thick pillars due to the angle of the windshield. Other than that, I just wasn't impressed with the Rouge, it felt disconnected from the road where the Sportage was a bit crisper in transmission (CVT=yuck) and handling. I was originally going to get a basic Sportage but the Turbo in the SX kind of sealed the deal for me.

     

    And hey, it is all designed by the guy that brought Audi to be the design icon it is today... amazing how far Kia has gone.

  2. I haven't rode the forward side in a few years but backwards left me and my friend saying ouch at the end. I love the ride but it really does need a overhaul in the smoothing department instead of the patchwork that they have been placing the past year or two.

     

    And the Racer is still number 2 till they put trims back on after the second lift on the Beast... that helix is the perfect mix of speed and roughness, just insane. It still is sad the messed up the first half though with those strong trims.

     

    I think I will ride the forward side tommorow (today, haha.)

  3. I went down today and was surprised to see on of my friends from school (PR Intern) speiling in the "Pre-line" they were making on the runway. All they have done for this coaster, including my corny t-shirt, has been perfect when it comes to pulling in the crowd. Other than my 3 hour wait, it seemed tons slower than I remember it up at GL. The whole park's atmosphere has changed into a cluster, I just hope the ride and park get themselves adjusted quickly.
