    Which member's advice do you respect?

    One of the great things about forums like these is that we have experts (and Imean TRUE professionals) who take the time to assist.

    I'm often amazed at some of the things people on here achieve. Not all are as vocal or as apt to help as others....BUT, I'm curious as to the members on here whom have helped you the most.

    In my humle list:

    1. Proanti. He seems to know more about nitro buggies than I will ever hope to know. He also turned me on to the Losi 810, which is still to this day my favorite vehicle!

    2. TheHuntingTerminator: Way back in my newbie days (with an Exceed Forza), I was about to "upgrade" to a RedCat. He tactfifully explained how it is the same OEM, and that turned me on to the Hyper 7-the single bit of advice that most changed my experience within "the hobby" and I am grateful for that.

    3. Foxy: Okay, he's the moderator, blah, blah. However, he's writes about things which cause me to still say to myself "will I ever have that sort of knowledge?" I also trust his opinion most on the classic "which car should I get?" He is good at reading between the lines and understanding what folks really should get (e.g, The XRay NT1 2012 is still on my Xmas list). ;-)

    4. HerrSavage: This is my nitro brother.For the longest time I thought "Am Ithe only nitro-head whohas no interest in Electric?", and he seems to share the same passion I do with the greatness that is known as nitro rc vehicles! Like my Seinfeld imbroglio - you either get it, or you don't. ;-) He also has the best sig line, IMO.

    5. Dads Like RC too: My favorite handle on here, as I can relate. He is the KING of helping the majority of the newbies in the RedCat/Exceed class, and I imagine more than anyone he has KEPT people in "the hobby", which is as important as anything we can do.

    6.SlayerDude: Another guy who is a true nitro-head. He's ALWAYS one of the first to jump in and assist with nitro engine problems, which is admirable due to all the "why won't my engine start" threads we get.

    7. Supertib: A bit of a lightning rod, but I respect how he can handle his own and I trust anything nitro engine related he ever has to say. I have no doubt he is a stand-up gentleman, and he knows his *****!.

    Of course there are a slew of folks on here I'm not mentioning whom have been tremendous help to me (both latently or not).

    The idea here is to call out those who have directly helped you with their advice on this forum. A good deed should never go unnoticed!

    Which members to you respect most?

    RE: Which member's advice do you respect?

    I too turn to different members for different advice. I'm grateful to be acknowledged, thanks John, I feel I do offer a lot of general and electric knowledge, but there are many who have much better specific knowledge who I will turn to now and then, particularly Neal (supertib) and DownUnder for engine related stuff.

    Thunderbirdjunkie also has great general knowledge, don't know what happened to him lately...Lunchboxer and his crew collectively know everything there is to know about Tamiya. There are a few guys in the Giant scale forum who can't be touched for knowledge of their class. Ramtech, Apache, and a British guy whose handle I can't remember right now.

    We do have some very knowledgeable people around here.

    We had a member xerxes (everyone remember him?) I expect he;s still floating around somewhere, maybe with a new username. Anyway, he got a load of abuse because of his posting style, but I tell you what, if you could get through one of his posts (personally I never had any trouble), that guy knew his stuff. The people who ignored him because of his grammar were only doing themselves a disservice.

    I forgot about him. At first he really annoyed me but then I realized that it was almost fun trying to decipher his posts. And yes, he did have a bit of knowledge about RCs. You make it sound like he got kicked out, but his user page says he was logged in 3 days ago.

    RE: Which member's advice do you respect?

    I never took any action over his grammar and made a point of defending him on it. I would love to be the grammar police if it was in any way acceptable, but it isn't, so I won't do it. There's no place to draw that line. What are we saying, you have to be classically educated and/or have an IQ over 80 to be welcome in this community? See the problem?

    RE: Which member's advice do you respect?

    xerxes just did it to be funny I saw posts by him (same location info, and name) in other forums and he didn't type like that. I think he got a kick out of how nuts people went, it kinda was like TBJ's typing in 3rd person if you saw his older posts he didn't do that.

    Yea, Sheo kinda only haunts here from time to time. we need more mods here, even though it does stay fairly calm. Last I talked to TBJ, he had been very busy. Winter is coming, we may see him again soon, I hope. He was a good one here haha


    Foxy, you are right, it would be borderline discrimination but I feel there should be some kind of line drawn. it really detracts a lot in a post when the language is being intentionally butchered. You shouldn't have to search for the intelligence or have to dig around to find something worthwhile in it. Say, didn't you start a thread a while back about proper punctuation? Just kidding with ya, Foxy!

    Actually I used to read, and occasionally post on another forum all 1337 speak(only quit cause I stopped caring about the topic of the board), and Texting type speaking was banned any posts would be deleted fairly fast if they were submitted no questions asked, and users would be put on probation to have their posts 1st read by a mod before being submitted. They saw it as discrimination when people would type to the point to purposely make it so not everyone could understand it, and refused to let the board go down that route. They made exceptions for non-English speakers as you can usually tell when English isn't their first language though as they weren't going above and beyond to be illegible.

    The best way for this to not end up in a flame war would be to only say positive things about other users whether they are still using the site or not. In any case this thread is just going to be either a pat each other on the back thread or a place to hate on others, neither of which I am interested in doing.

    I wasn't complaining about his grammar.But you're post and someone else's made it sound like he was kicked out. I was just curious.

    Very true but there are instances where equipment fails

    But the driver is always responsible for damage done to other rc's, property or persons.

    RE: Which member's advice do you respect?

    Easy answer. Sorry I do not remember his handle, but the guy from Israel is hands down the best support/help I have seen. At any rate, the only one from Israel I am aware of on this forum. PLUS, I have never seen him get involved in personal rebukes.

    correction, he didnt drown, he's in intensive care because he broke every bone in his body trying to dive in.

    who's advice do i respect? anyone who's advice is relevant, correct and positive. and in case you were wondering, yes advice can be incorrect. example:

    new guy: i'm looking for a first truck. i want 4wd, fast enough to stay entertaining while i learn to drive and i want to stay under $300 for everything.

    correct answer: for that price you have a couple options. you could get a tamiya DF02 kit or rtr (you didnt specify) and all needed components or if you prefer you could get one of the thunder tiger models. they have both nitro and electric. HPI also has a couple models in that price range. google those and see what you prefer.

    incorrect answer: get a t4.1 worlds*, i love mine.

    see, incorrect advice. another example:

    asker: i want to upgrade the engine in my rc8, what engine would you recommend for racing?

    correct answer: i dont know what the track conditions are like where you are nor did you specify your budget but OS, pico and novarossi all make decent engines.

    incorrect answer: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...P?I=LXWMB1&P=8 http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXWZJ7&P=ML

    LOL seen stuff like that said too many times
    even after the guy says 3 times he's not interested in that kinda thing then people start saying the benefits of BL over nitro, and the OP gets fed up to leave and never to return.
