    Been out of the Carputer game a year...

    trying to play catchup. Whats new in the past year?

    When I last visited, Centrafuse was all the rage, people were still trying to build a ambient light proof TS, and the M1ATX still reigned supreme.


    Help me catch up!
    2000 Sunfire build 100%, or is it ever really 100%?

    Check out how far Road Runner has come!

    The M2 is out and the M4 is also out. Dunno what happened to the M3?!

    Check into the 3M film thread to increase brightness.

    Look at the Fusion Brain.

    That should get you started.

    Centrafuse is now in version 2.0, very easy to setup with tons of features.

    Now you have alot of other PSU contenders, OPUS is the one I prefer, PSU are also becoming more power hungry.

    The battle with the screens and light still rages on.......

    Also PC for the car are turning into monsters, able to do more things in less time.

    Im kind of glad I got into it now, rather then in the past. So many more gadgets to choose from. You got computer based Tire Management Pressure Systems that tie in with front ends. A solid HD radio setup that blows USB radios away......... The list goes on... You have ALOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT of catching up, lol.
