A hard drive is a hard drive. You could use any old hard drive in the Xbox 1, I'm sure its the same for the 360

Not so sure about the 360 because it slides onto the top.

I should be running with a local blue Altima sometime soon. We had a nice little round today but we were just doing laps at a parking lot. Then we talked and it turns out he had a neon himself as a previous car (and ive seen it before as well). The car was nice. He sold it and go this. Must say he gave me a good run today (no shit hes got 5-speed)

because the vast majority see a car as just a mode of transportation, and nothing more.

so do most of the people in this country, but they still drive a 'stick' or manual as we call them... our licence system means if you take your test in an automatic, then you cant drive a stick, until you take a test in one! what about yours? if you take a test in a stick, you can drive both!

my feelings are that its too easy to get a licence here... and we're a lot more strict on that kind of stuff than you guys are!

having a stick no way affects your speed, unless you have to downshift alot, then auto's get confused and shift wrong, or slower. going around the lot in circles, shifting should not mean anything, so you assuming a stick is a faster car, is off.

plus most americans drive auto b/c they are lazy and think of cars njot as something fun but as something dull and transport only, like sum1 said. i hated learning on auto b/c when i was picking out my car, stick was out of the question, so now im still stuck with having to learn stick on a car with so much tourque i can shift into second at 15mph and stay in second all the way till 60mph... not fun at all, but itll be worth it
