I like this attitude ^ right here . I've btdt - out of 1095 days I had a DL for exactly 93 of them .Yes the last line is correct!You pick your priorities and move on .

All this talk about hot rods with good FE makes me want to introduce my car all over again.

best 1/4 mile time last October 13.1 @ 112mph, best FE 45.4mpg, same car, same tires, same mods, but not on the same tank

I've mentioned my car's FE on DSMTuners.com a few times and gotten positive replies, but I also haven't put my car up front in a main page thread either. They're generally open, curious, and mature over there. I've tried browsing some Honda forums too but I can't handle the stupid arguments. My apologies if I stepped on anyones toes.

I can't view anyone's private messages except my own. Maybe the owner can though.

(edit: forum/site owner... head honcho... you know what I mean)

Different forums, different rules. The high performance truck forum I normally post to has no such problems. I get razzed a little for being interested in fuel economy as well as quarter mile times, but that's about it. There is another high "performance" truck board that a lot of the folks on my board are also a member of, where you can get banned at the drop of a hat for making a bad remark about frame dragging. They talk about going fast, but if you aren't into low riders they'll run you off. I dropped my membership with them after they banned another member, when he advised them that high performance meant quarter mile times, not how long a spark trail you can leave.

Some of them people are nuts, they will actually drag their truck until the frame collapses!

I can tell you this... for a savvy site owner, reading private messages is possible. It usually involves installing extra software, and a high dose of paranoia on top of that.

here on gassavers I don't read private messages. I just don't care. I think it's petty to do so.

I'm certain that in certain occasions (fights, legal issues, etc.) it can become necessary... but I don't see that really being a problem here.

True

It usually involves installing extra software,
or just know BBC code
and a high dose of paranoia on top of that.
Again True!

An attitude like this wins more respect - more board admins should learn this .

I agree. There does come a time when you just gotta do what ya gotta do.
