i really like it. After all, a drive is not really essential, you can just use a networked one.

I thought that was an ace mod, well done. I like the suggestion someone made of building a power switch into the valve cap, that would be cool. I wouldn't like to be the owner of the A4 now missing a front and rear brake though! :D

Just adding my vote to the "Really glad you remade this" pile. I guess i'd consider it a concept mod rather than a practical or stylish one - let's be honest who wants a tyre in their living room? Kudos though.

its not a word i use alot when i see mods but this one is genius, and i dont have any critisisms, just questions.

How do you protect it from dust? did you put the plexi back on the back? you could still hide the fan quite easily i woulda thought, and gfx, is it utalising on board or something?

Kudos on the nice job though.

If I was a rich man, I would definetly be purchasing that beauty.

One idea,

If you could get those BMW tires, that when punctured stay hard and are strill driveable on; you could cut into them and hopefully they would hold their shape so you could put a dvd drive in the actual tire.

Just an idea.

michelin (sp?) or goodyear run flats i believe

That is one amazing mod. As to the dvd drive, if I was rich, I would just use another pc to stream dvds to it on its wireless network card. If you are going to get an HTPC, just rip all your films to disk.

Finally, someone that makes a mediaserver without flashing lights......And a "wheel" mod that actually looks sweet.

I agree. The first version was just too rough - not something we expect from GoTaLL, however the second was pure eye-candy.
-ed out

The second one looks good, although cars really aren't my cup of tea... :)

But yours is'nt finished yet......Besides this one is way cooler.

First of all, How can you have an opinion on something that's not finished yet? a little contradictionaire don't you think?
2nd of all, wether it's cooler, is an opinion, and has nothing to do with the originality of the mod.

I take back my words about it being or not being original. I don't know when the modder started his project so maybe he did it even before me. I do know I'm a bit disappointed, not being the first to finish a mod like this. I really loved the idea, had the same plans and put them on bit tech half a year ago. Even long before that I already screened internet for projects like this and found just 2 rim mods, completely different then this one and mine. I just don't like the idea someone taking the credits for something he didn't design...
GoTaLL 21st May 2006, 08:56 Quote
hm .. didnt design? who designed my modd? never said it wasnt done before. its like saying everyone that uses a computercase as a start is ripping everyone else off.

taking credits for it? .. of course i am .. i designed "THIS" modd. there are lots of wheel cases on the net using regular hardware in them .. i dont think i seen any that used itx stuff, allmost totally passive cooled, and as i did change from version 1-2 and from showing all hardware to "stealthing" it. but as i said never said an alloy wasnt used before. but i did both design it and build it and taking credits for my work .. :)
