Post by: DarthNuno on October 02, 2007, 08:07:41 PM
This is it... after the 'badtrip' done with Pat few weeks ago for a Sega Touring Cars (see here (http://www.dragonslairfans.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=1639#1639)) ... we finally found *THE* racing game from Sega  :o

Ladies & Gentlemen... let's go for a SCUD RACE twin cab...

...OK, well... the game is in UK ... so ?

Not a big problem, because I've a game to pick up in UK too... not as big as the Scud... hopefully  :roll:  ... I've to pick up an APB by Atari  :arrow:

Pat doesn't want to drive in UK, so he's driving until Calais ...

He's discovering the EuroTunnel for the first time :

Let's try the game... everything is fine, except one thing : we cannot hear the motor sound on the first cabinet  :?  Well, it should be an easy fix ...

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/scudapb-rt/scap18.jpg)

Let's load it ...

This is *the moment* ... we are not sure if we can load such beast into that van... cross the fingers...

I agree with you ... the van seems to be full... but there is hope  :oops:  :wink:

This is the first time for Pat to be so far of his family  :oops: He's calling his wife to tell her everything is fine 'til now  8)

Well maybe not more than the games, but as you can see I really love to 'roadtrip' everywhere  8)  And I agree that UK is my favorite "territory"  :roll:  :wink:

I'm very active on forum, ebay, ... and very often, the sellers are also collectors... so It helps to keep good relation  :wink:

Nice going Bruno. Great to see an APB once again, I didn't see it when we were overthere at Bracknell.
Nice to see all those familair faces and surroundings once again.

...and now the seller is gone in USA with the rest of the cabinets (Ms PacMan, Galaga, Star Wars,... )
I told him : "please, sell me these cabs, it'll be easy for you to buy them again in US blablabla..." , but ... no luck  :oops:
