Re: little history lesson.........

Yeah I know, excellent find (pats himself on the back). Cant get over how quickly they progressed in terms of power output. 420bhp from a 1.5 litre V8 twin supercharged engine! And the sounds!!!! Brilliant programme, really makes you appreciate the history.

By the way, if you want to save these videos off google videos do the following:

1- Ensure you are using Mozilla Firefox (If you are not already, then you really should be, IE is a pile of tat) install it if you aint got it.

2- Download the following:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3006

Its an add-on for firefox, which allows you to download flv videos from youtube/google vids and loads of other sites.

3- Allow the video to complete fully (let the video load up so the run bar is red)

4- Go to tools->download helper-> video name
click it and it will start to download.

5- The vid is in flv format, you need VLC player (a brilliant little media player, which just plays anything to throw at it, way better than windoze media player)

VLC media player for Windows

Open up the video with VLC and away you go.

Re: little history lesson.........

you could use one of the flv rippers that isnt a dirty addon and avoid installing mozilla malwarefux

there are also plenty of free flv players and converters to make it mp4 or whatever format you want.
