Recursing Xoder
· 2006 Toyota Matrix — Small in every way except for the cargo space. Slightly better acceleration than the xB, but only just. Handling is nothing special. The engine seemed particularly loud, but I can't say how much that was due to possible poor maintenance or design.

My 03 one is the same model as yours. Yes, they are deliberately designed to be louder. I have the XRS model, which means an even louder (and more powerful) engine. It handles just fine - just need to make it behave a little bit.....

Just because an engine is louder doesn't necessarily mean it's more powerful. In "sporty" cars the manufacturer will sometimes reduce the soundproofing just so the car sounds sporty.

It does rack up an extra 50hp on the XRS model (2zz engine vs. the 1zz on the XR or base mdoels), so it is slightly more powerful.

I love that LJ icon!

I can make you one just like it, if you'd like. It wasn't particularly hard, and it was kind of fun.

Neat! I'd love that. What do I need to give you to do this?

Nothing at all, I can just take it off of your frontpage style. If you want me to use a special background, then that's one thing, but it's not necessary.

I took it off my style so it looks really nice on my page. If you don't already, take off the "?style=mine" or "?style=light" from the URL that you use to access this page to see it match the style of the page.

Sorry for the delay on finishing this one, the first time I did it the GIMP crashed, and that left me a little despondent!

At 3kiB, it is well under the 40kiB limit for LJ user icons.

All I ask for is a "made by xoder" somewhere in the comment for the image.
