    We have a way to fix the spam problem. What we'll do is put in a "Promotion System". So someone who registers here today new will become a "Registered User" but they won't be able to start conversations/send private messages. After that person has made X number of posts then the system will...

    Craft Performance engine knock

    As someone who has wrestled with a few Holley Sniper installs I can for sure tell you that whoever installed the Sniper HAD to know what the ignition timing was to set that up properly with rotor phasing and so on. That is, if they got it right. Are we sure these engines from KC are...

    Forum Support 2021

    Hi Folks, As most of you know, about two years ago quit accepting advertising banners and so on and became a member supported forum. So far that has been doing just fine with our yearly income being about the same as our expenses. That’s our goal, to break even and keep the site...

    Congratulations to you! Now every day that ends in a Y in a Saturday!

    Thanks to all that make the forum possible. If you're new here and like what you see think about becoming a forum supporter. We aren't for profit and typically speaking we squeek by on expenses each month, typically ending the year at about break even.

    Hi Folks, Spam has gotten out of hand as of late. The spambots are circumnavigating the spam guards we have in place and are becoming registered users. Once they are registered users they can send private messages to people, email members, and so on. So, for a temporary amount of time we're...
  9. Ron Earp is Twenty!

    Hard to believe it but the forum is now twenty years old this month. It seems like a long long time ago we started the forum hosting it on a free forum service which I can’t even remember the name of now. We’ve seen a lot of changes in the GT40s industry over the years with GT40 replica...

    Hi Folks, We have deleted a couple of these spammers in the recent week. Those of you that haven't logged on and viewed private messages in several days, or weeks, might still think there are spammers active unless you pay attention to the date the PM was sent. If anyone detects NEW PM spam...

    JP....what exactly is it that you are trying to state?

    Alternative Energy Sources discussion

    Absolutely true. And we've witnessed the results of a lack of understanding of the scientific process in the form of complaints uttered by people you know: "I just don't trust the CDC. First it's masks, then no masks, then sometimes masks, and then all the different directions on vaccines! They...

    Alternative Energy Sources discussion can't. Last week I flew with an instructor to get my tailwheel endorsement. Over lunches I learned he is an antivaxxer, and, thinks there is a conspiracy around vaccines and nearly eveything else in the government. I understand mRNA vaccines and how they work via my...

    Alternative Energy Sources discussion

    Only fearmongering and anti-science "concern". The worlds largest collider went on to be built in Europe where it is the center of high energy physics research on the globe, most recently proving the existence of the Higgs particle, a particle that should have been discovered in Texas. Such...

    Welding on Galvanized / Coated Steel & Cleaning Steel

    Nice work, way to get things done! Welding on galvanized stuff is crappy. I've had to do it a few times and always set up a big fan and worked upwind. Just to let you know.....I can still see that RV :)

    Electric Vechicles Are Here - The world is rapidly going to S#@!

    As far as trying out a BEV, the Prius and other hybrids don't provide an accurate representation of what a BEV can do. Not at all. You need to give a modern pure electric vehicle a try. For performance enthusiasts go try a Tesla Model 3 Performance, or Tesla Plaid. These are 11s and 9s cars...

    Electric Vechicles Are Here - The world is rapidly going to S#@!

    Yep. As I wrote, we have two EVs and they are just fantastic vehicles. Doesn't mean I can't enjoy an ICE but the time of the ICE dominance is coming to a close. Just as we regulated steam engines to niche uses and nostalgia in favor of the ICE, the same will come to pass with ICEs in favor of...

    Electric Vechicles Are Here - The world is rapidly going to S#@!

    Really cool purpose-built EV that launched at Goodwood. Since this thread seemingly is about disliking EV's for several tangential reasons that are not related to electric propoulsion or GT40s might be time for this thread to head over to the Paddock.
