Other Forums.....

So being Winter, nothing to do, and that I've been coughing up a lung for the last 4 weeks....... I wandered back to some of the old forums I used to be an active member of....... Zcar and Speed Triple Forum.

For the purpose of the imagination, it could be any car forum and any average bike forum. But here's the top threads.

What Oil Should I Use
Quote:
Under Drive Pulley - Looking at Chin Xing Brand (Promises HUGE HP gains)
Quote:
Gas Octane....????
Quote:
Oil level a bit low, need to add oil?
My personal favorite.
Quote:
TIRES.....NEED OPINION

PRICING OUT TIRES...SAW ...NANKANG TIRES FROM CHINA....WITH A GOOD PRICE FOR 19 INCHE WHEELS....ANY BODY HAD EXPERIENCE WITH THIS BRAND TIRE

I just want to crawl in a hole away from the stupid......

Morons abound everywhere. Stay home at CLSB, at least we have a better than average forum membership.

Now, how about that Busa?!

Wow I didn't know the world was blessed with so many perfect people. New threads even about old subjects can still pick up some new info. Maybe from new members with things to share or lurkers just finding the nerve to hit the keyboard out of fear of the bashing they're about to endure or about new products that may not have been around when the old threads were done.

I'm not opposed to going over old subjects, but there is a search feature. If you don't know, search, if the thread doesn't have the info you need, add to that thread, while not starting a new one. When I see 3 oil threads on the first two pages of the forum asking the same thing, I get frustrated.

Then when you point out there was another thread that answered the same thing, two days ago, you get yelled at for being an asshole.


My point with the original post, is at least at CLSB the redundant threads seem to be somewhat limited. Which is nice.

The Chinese knock offs for half the price. Because after a long explanation of which is the best, the best value, and why you should get a certain type or brand......

The original poster always goes, "Thanks for the replies. I found a Chinese brand that matches the color of my car. They're for a diesel ram, but the seller told me they would fit a civic. I don't have any technical know how, so can one of you help me put them on? I'll give you a warm beer, then bitch publicly on the forum that your ripping me off when you come over and tell me you can't put truck pulleys on a civic."



Happy Holidays everyone.

When you hit the NOS, does it shoot blue or purple flames out the exhaust like in the movies. Because on my bike, I just had piston parts shoot out the exhaust.
