Agreed, the only reason I haven't done car yet is that I haven't had a board where the best match to copy from used CAR. I defiantly hav plans for updating all the boards I have to car but I am waiting til I hit a board where car is the best match or I run out if board / easy targets.

By then I might help out with porting the 440bx boards (is 440lx below?).
