Initial D Arcade Stage

Initial D5 Has gone ONLINE (HK & Taiwan) Jan. 29
Taiwan has been connected since Dec 22nd 2009 and now HK has joined in the fun yesterday. According to C*F, there are machines linked to the rankings (but the arcade owners upped the price per credit) so now we can see the CP times xDD

Battling wise, there is still no online vs mode but we can now battle against each other on the linked cabs and get wins / auras.

At least it's an improvement on an otherwise sucky game.

HKS owes HK$18000 and has disappeared Jan. 9
Superstar HKS ran away from home leaving behind an HK$18000 debt to some guy named Rain.
Reports say he spent $8000 on a second hand jacket in Japan and played wangan instead of repaying his debt.

Rain made a thread on one of the HK forums which goes like this:
"Don't dive under water, you better call me and talk about it before Jan 4 or i'll be pissed off"

HKS' brother then gives Rain his dad's number and a heated exchange ensued.

HKS has been gone for about 2 weeks and his phone has also been cut off. He doesn't keep in touch with friends or his team, Prodigy'z Opus.

People are also coming out and revealing HKS' personal life and apparently he's been playing 4 girls at once.

Inital D Arcade Stage 4 BREAK! Jan. 4
You all may have seen my topic, that was moved to Events about rumors of a new update version of ID4.

user posted image

The game has been given an official name, and the web site (see the topic) has been updated with the three new cars and tracks.

My typo about new 'Cards' has turned out to be true as the game will get special ID4.1 cards (very slight change and old cards can be used on the machines.

All the best,

v3 Records Continue to be Sought After Sep. 9
Many are chasing, (and quite successfully I might add) world records.
Here is another recent record taken in HK:
Sho IB - 55'7 Overtaking Taro's previous 55'8.

He also took Tsu ob wet if you look after reyherk's hacked time.

I think it's also worth noting that RPM.S took 2nd place on akina uphill this same day:
