On the upper side of the wheel arches, imsa CFK air ducts have been integrated, resulting in a significant reduction of the drag effect caused by non-aerodynamic airflow at higher and highest velocity. The imsa side-skirts on the underside guarantee the optimum airflow to the imsa diffuser, which has been developed for an aerodynamically perfect interaction with the imsa rear spoiler. Imsa herewith achieved to considerably lower the downforce at higher and highest speeds. The benefits for the driver are a significant enhancement of driving stability, safety and enjoyment.
Photoshop Express is an exciting new web based product from Adobe. It is a flash based, light version of the popular (to say the least) image editing software Photoshop. It works pretty good and it is totally free. Don’t expect to find the same advanced functions as in the full-scale versions but it works better than I initially thought it would. Not too bad at all!

These shots of big time sports events by New York-based photographer Vincent Laforet. I love the plasticized, surreal quality of the photos and the unnatural vibrancy of the colours. It really does look like someone’s created an extremely detailed little sports diorama and carved thousands of wee sports fans out of plastic. They look like many tiny plastic figures.
