Absolute power does what?
I couldn't agree more and I wish I'd known about the ban as I would have definitely gone to bat for him. I think you know he and I got to meet last summer at Road Atlanta (he and Goddess of course). Just good people, super nice and like all Lotus owners (and most track rats) willing to give you the shirt off your back if it makes you a 1/10th faster!Yes, GP was banned for what I believe was something silly on the NSFW thread, but I'm not positive as I didn't see the post.
Poor guy, I felt bad for him. He contributes quite a bit to the forum and I like the fact that he and GunGoddess use their cars for what they were designed for, autocross and track
You're absolutely right - and while there are other very active communities out there this one is somehow different, certainly than the other boards I've frequented in the past. As an IT Guy/nerd I've spent time on many many forums but have never been on one with this level of community. I mean damn, I'd almost forgotten about the RC car and here you are asking me about it. Yeah, it's on hold for that reason and that I'm just not sure what I want. I definitely need/want a project so I stopped by one of the biggest local hobby/RC stores. Walked around for about 20 minutes browsing and looking lost, even walked up to the counter a few times. Basically no one would help me and as I wasn't going to go beg someone for help I just left. I almost called the manager to tell him a customer willing to spend basically anything (below say $2k) and I left because no one offered to help me. I was looking more at planes than cars - I figure I can drive a car but I can't (at least now) fly an RC plane.Ross, this isn't just a forum, it's a community. Of course we care about our fellow enthusiasts. BTW, I'm assuming your RC build has been put on hold with the time demands of your new position.
