Xbox 360 RROD Fix

November 13th, 2008

So I got an RROD the other day, right when I wanted to drift on Forza 2.  I turned it on and off a few times, still there.  I take off the hard drive and start it up, still there.  I un-plug the power supply for a few minutes then try it again, still there.  It was starting to become discouraging.  So my friend calls me and I tell him what’s up, he told me to wrap it up in a blanket and leave it on.  So I look up the technique online and it seems to have worked for a few people.

I ended up wrapping two towels around it and playing a DVD in the drive to keep it running.  I left it running for about 5-10 min and checked it, it was really cooking.  I decided to turn it off and then turn it on again…and behold, it actually was back to normal.  After that I shut it down again and stuck it in the fridge to cool down whatever got hot and technically “fixed”.  I then took it out about 20 min later and let it acclimate to room temperature again.  That’s it…it’s still running fine so far, which I’m pretty pleased about.  Who would have thought that cooking and then refrigerating would fix an Xbox 360.

Forza Motorsports 2: Drift Setup

November 7th, 2008

I’ve been getting into drifting more and more on this game…in my opinion it’s the only game that you can truly and accurately drift.  I came from being a hard core Gran Turismo fan, scoffing at xbox when Forza 1 was released, to my realization that Forza is a better game.  So any way, here is a freebie setup for my Viper Comp Coupe in forza 2 (the exact specs i use)

It’s a good base to start with, it’s perfect for me and have tried everything under the sun as far as tuning with it.  But every driver has they’re own style.

Foust’s TC Renders

November 4th, 2008

I was perusing the forzamotorsports.net forum today and came across some fairly plausible renders of what Tanner’s expected Scion tC might look like.  Check them out.  His is at the top of the thread and if you continue down you’ll see awesome livery of some of the best US drifters out there. Hubinette, Pawlak, the DA, and more.

If you wanna drift on forza, hit me up, KkeEGaN.
