Introduction to Hotrodding Guide.

I spoke to Jon (for those of you that dont know, Jon is the big cheese around here) and we were talking about this guide for the Introduction forum. We are going to go into more specifics now, 1 section for engine stuff, another for transmission stuff, until we have something for every Tech Forum on the site. We are starting with the Engine forum.

What I am asking you is to think of some things that you would like us to put in this guide, but only mention the Engine type things at this time. Just help us come up with some ideas. Thanks. If you need more info or would like me to explain more, Pm me. Thank you.

Don't feed the troll's

We are pestered by troll's. They come in here swearing and putting people down for a variety of reasons and generally try to stir up trouble, don't banter with the troll's. No attention from the board, no fun for the troll's. If a post is in questionable taste report it immediately. Don't feed the troll's.

A guide on older car prices up to about 1980.
Where to find , said cars.

After all, the young ones coming here generally are only dreaming and don't own anything yet. Get them started on the right foot.

Here's some ideas for the ENGINE forum...
* Superchargers... i.e. anything to do with superchargers and turbos including roots and centrifugal.
* Exhaust.... anything to do with headers, H or X pipes and so forth.
* Building a Big Block Chevy
* Building a Small Block Chevy
and, if there is enough interest to warrant them, Pontiac, Olds, Ford and Mopar forums.
* Camshaft Tech
* Converter Tech
* Rearend Tech
Etc., Etc.

Well, it's a know fact that almost every question asked has been or could be answered by searching the site! But it could take a good bit of time, actually very interesting searching thru it, but most times, everyones in a hurry for an answer, and it's actually quicker to ask, than to search, but how about a basic troubleshooting section, such as compression testing, timing adjustment, how to check for spark? Something along those lines. Somewhere to go before and perform checks, before posting general questions without any prior diagnosing! Just a thought!

How about some info on sensors and other computer controlled devices for those rodders that have newer rides but still want to be able to do some modifications and repairs? I can tell you, it takes a lot of cash to take your car somewhere and have some kid (no offense to the younger members) throw parts at it until the computer stops beeping.

Chickie.

How about a place for the young guys (and gals), where they can express themselves and not get grief from us old farts. I would check it out, just to see what they are up to.
After all, a kid has to have his dreams, right?

So what, if they are full of *******. We all were when we were younger.
