I woke up this morning thinking to myself, in South Africa we are sometimes very limited to certain services in the modified car industry. Then I got thinking about the different tuning software applications we have access to in South Africa. We have Robbie Ferroli who was one of the 1st guys to use the Revo Software and everybody went crazy for the Revo.

Ken Block ULTIMATE URBAN PLAYGROUND – Gymkhana 5
