Default New Forum

It came to my attention that i Club became very fond of power claims that instantly turn into a big flaming argument. It usually has no technical value.

So, to separate the technical threads from "No, you suck and your dyno is liying..." thread, we have this forum now.

If you can think of a better name for this forum, please post it here.

Hello,

Umm, Alex, you might think of making this forum NOT under Factory Forced and instead in it's own place, since the 2.5s are also running 1/4 miles and I think their records in the US are right there with the WRXs. Weren't there a couple of mid to high 12 second Minnam Turbo cars a couple years ago? If so, there are no 11 second WRXs yet, so they're both in the same league...

New name for forum...

" Mine is bigger than yours and if you beat me, I'll spend the rest of my time belittling everything you do, because I have spent more money than everyone on this board and still look like a schlep"

Or

" I have issues in the pants and must make grand claims to negate my lack of a man sized package"

I know they are a little wordy, but I feel they are quite on the mark....

Alex, you came up with the perfect heading for this forum earlier and didn't even know it, " No, you suck and your dyno is lying..." ( corrected spelling version ). That is perfect...
I think it is a good idea to have a forum that tries to keep the smack talk out of the serious tech talk, but I have a feeling it will becoume rather slanderous here, both for the enthusiast and the vendors alike. We'll see though, it could also be very entertaining too...
P.S. Check the spelling in the forum topic header under Proven Power Bragging, " achivement " aka achievement.. I'm not the spelling police, no flames please, but you don't want people telling you the same thing over and over again either..

Excellent!

I agree the title should have been "No, you suck and your dyno is lying..."

But I am glad to see the change in any case.

I just hope this forum doesn't turn into one giant flame fest. I-club is getting bad enough as it is.

I still like "my dick is bigger than your dick" but it's not so easy to say 10 times fast and it doesn't roll off the tongue . Plus, we'd end up in searches for those "enlarger" pill ads that are as prevalent as the damn X10 cameras .

Alex, thank you for the new forum- I was damn near lynched for moving these threads out of FFI and for suggesting that they aren't inherently technical .

Now that the spelling police and the moderators are both in da house, can one of you kind mods please correct the spelling in the description for the Vendor 'For Sale' Classifieds? For the 6 months I've been a member, I've been wondering when someone was going to change "NO GROUP GUYS!!!" to "NO GROUP BUYS!!!" like the description for the Private 'For Sale' Classifieds right above it.

Thank you!

I'm starting to wonder about i-Club, " No Group Guys classifieds"?, and then North Ursalia is talking about "my dick is bigger than your dick " ? J/K....

How about "HP / 1/4 Braging Forum" or "Al's forum"

I need to add to Imprezers words that there will be a STRICT moderation to maintain the flaming to a minimum!!!

I think this forum will be great if it takes some of the smack talk out of the other forums so they can stay on topic. Thanks for putting this into place.

I think Al's forum has a nice ring to it . . .

But i would suggest - "Power and Speed Braging Rights" forum

or simply - "Who is the fastest?"

Hmmm, a new forum for weenie comparing, but still no place to talk about general automotive technical topics?

Wow I stumble on this new forum to see it full of bickering, name-calling, and accusations.

A simple dyno graph pic doesnt seem like enough now. You need to have a notary, 7 drops of bllod from your first born, and a devine sign from God

Sounds like 1 more forum for little kids to quarrel imho.

But I am pretty bitter myself

My car is slow, so I catch the bus.

I appreciate this idea, as well. It should clean up the FFI forum, and still allow reasonable bragging, venting and weenie comparing to go on. Like they say overseas, us US peeps are all about the drag strip and HP figures! So its fitting we have an entire forum dedicated to it!

How about the "Subaru's Used Only To Go Straight Unlike They Were Designed To Do So Go Get A Mustang" forum.

A good idea though.

It is about time the BS was seperated from the useful information. Although I think there should be an al vs turboxs forum as well. Being the topic seems to come up quite often maybe its just a good idea to give him his very own forum. Being he seems to think that every dyno should bring out the same numbers im sure the new forum will have some very interesting ideas, innovation and good ole complaining. Just my 02 cents.

speed safely,

This new forum sucks. Now I have one more f'n forum to read each day. You should have just left all this in the same forum.

So, If a thread starts out braging in the FFI forum you will move it here right?

Then what if it turns into a technical thread where people are discussing mods and such? Will you move it back??

I agree with torch - - it was better when it was all in the same forum - - i just hope that they keep it fair and restrict turboxs and other from posting thier future power claims in FFI - so long as everyone has to play by the same rules - i see no probolem either way
