Goodyear F1 Asymmetric 2 maint & run

I got to thank Kl Peace rally , today at Kapar Road tyre shop was not much of customer.

Below 2 are my old donut which last me for < 2 year , GY F1 Asymmetric also the inner side thread was totally “eat in”….terrible for a FD2

There wasn’t much of choice as my idea Nexen was out of stock and left only Yokohama S.Drive which is around rm3xx ..but I though this was a very old old model and the comment was not really good.

Michelin PS3 make in Thailand but was quote at rm 49x….terrible expensive. so I ask that lady about the new GY Asym 2 and she said there was stock on it and I  can immediate mock it once payment done and further it was make in Germany..

So I told myself , this was my only time and last time to run a Germany tyre ,and it better work and durable..

As result of first customer , I manage to get a discount on Nitro gas for all of my tyre.Smile 

According to her , this gas is lighter and if we travel long journey it is cooler then normal gas..Smile





Anyway I am going to eat mix-rice for the rest of my month to recover back the extra budget.

Seagate GoFlex vs Toshiba Canvio


This was the first time I’m doing a benchmark to compare both of my external 2.5 portal hard drive.

Both GoFlex and Canvio did support USB 2 & USB 3.0 as well ,although GoFlex have a flexible on convert to e-Sata but Canvio also have it feature of shock resistant which both selling at lowyatt at Rm 199 .

I attach now print screen by running CrystalDiskMark 64bit(I’m running a 64bit Wind0w 7) and also download and setup USB 3.0 driver for my new workstation.

Seagate is on left and Toshiba is on right , with USB 2.0 itself  Toshiba is able to outrun Seagate with few MB/s.and per other category also outrun seagate

Now it is time for USB3.0 , it clearly show that with USB 3.0 the speed is up to 200% increase of the speek from Seq to 5.12k transfer category but as of 4k and 4kQD32 it only show a little improve over USB3.0 .

Let me check out further on how to improve it over USB 3.0 but overall I’m impress with Toshiba and oversea forum review was correct it was worth the money to gain a distance.

See ya
