    ranting, stand clear

    ok im normaly not the type to post this sort of thing (atleast i think im not) but im on 5 different forums (minus my clubs forum) and in eveyone its the same crap!!!! im sick of all these ppl wanting instant gratification or are too lazy to do any leg work towards researching a problem or car or some other stupid thing. im sick of the stupid SC, slash, rusty, pede threads that are so easily answered with a simple line typed into the SEARCH button. and im so so sick of all the brand bias and close mindedness from ppl. and how many times have i seen something to the effect of " its a race car so it cant handle abuse" WRONG how many of those ppl that post that crap have ever even seen a track in person let alone raced for any amount of time, if they did they'd know that race rigs are as tough as anything out there, especialy since racers are hard charging the whole time.

    to all you out there who are new to rc, you are more than welcome to ask questions, its part of the hobby and most will be happy to answer but do yourself a favor and start doing some leg work of your own!

    maybe im just going through racing withdraw or maybe my ego is so big that i think my opinion matters maybe i need to start getting more wheel time in [sm=bananahead.gif] or i could always start drinking more[&:]

    rant over, continue with the normaly schedualed program

    Yeah... I feel the same way. I dont mind answering a tuning question, but when you can find a part on towerhobbies with a simple keyword...

    RE: ranting, stand clear

    there is a "so you want a r/c " or "read this first before asking ,what car to buy" thread for amost every catagory in this forum
    and there is a METRIC TON of info in every one of them!!! there is a place to ask questions ,but i agree that a person should do a little foot work first.
    almost everyone on here has no problem answering questions , and they are more times than not extreemlly helpfull
    so check out the "read this before asking what car to buy" threads ,and ask away!!
    keep your arms and legs in the ride at all times
    and HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!

    RE: ranting, stand clear

    Got to agree with that!!!
    It amazes me how many people will ask questions on these and other forums when all they need to do is head over to the manufacturers web sight and find everything they need to know.
    Do they not know what Google (or any other search engine) is and how to use it?

    Go fast, turn left, repeat as needed!!!
    My spelling sucks, get over it!!!

    RE: ranting, stand clear

    well to add to my other comments i forgot to mention, nobody does good projects anymore, the only ones i see are vintage restorations and a few hard core moders who dont do anything but. and most people who do "projects" just slap some pretty peices on their rusty and call it a day. are ppl intimidated by tools and new things or are they just lazy? take some inititive people!!!

    ya know what it is, im still in the 80's and 90's when cars were kits, traxxas was racing, and ppl were always trying new things and belived in hard work. too bad i wasnt born in the 80's

    oh yeah, the one's that really piss me off are the ones that could be answered if the idiot would just READ THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL.

    people don't need to build projects anymore, they can buy an RTR. sucked the friggincreativity right out of it. instant gratification or nothing, unless the parts are easy bolt on's people aren't interested. we are raising a new generation in this manner. its going to come back and screw us up the butt. and i aint just talking about the hobby im talking about society as a hole

    RE: ranting, stand clear

    I gotta come in and agree with you guys.So many threads every day on some stupid question that has been answered countless times.I really honestly cant see, why people cant use the search button. I think there needs to be a gigantic banner on every page that says

    USE THE FREAKIN SEARCH BUTTON!

    These lazy people really do get on my nerves sometimes.I see thread called the cure to male baldness and im like oh finally!Turns out its just another question []

    One more thing i have to add.

    It ticks me off SO bad, when people post a bunch of threads, about the same truck, or even asking the same question.[sm=punching.gif][sm=punching.gif]
    For instance, 2 threads 5 minutes apart about tires and wheels, and asking the same question in them.Or, someone asks 4+ questions about the same truck, in 4+ different threads all back to back in the same forum.[sm=angry_smile.gif]

    Personally thing that peeves me off is when you do answer someones question and they don't even thank you
    or in some cases give you an attitude because they didn't do something that is common sense, written in the damn manual, and think your making fun of them. Or they keep posting in their thread to bump it up every 3 mins cause no one replied immediately

    THEN THERE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO IDEA WHAT PUNCTUATION OR CAPLOCK WAS MEANT FOR WITH A BUTTLOAD OF MISSPELLINGS AND WILL TYPE IN ONE LONG RUN ON SENTENCE THAT MAKES ALMOST NO SENSE AND YOU HAVE TO REREAD A FEW HUNDRED TIMES TO MAKE SENSE

    couldn't help myself there

    Yeah the cAps/punc,hiation kind of went along with what i said, but you topped me a lil bit lol.The not thanking you thing is bad too, i used to take it kind of personal but now i just shrug it off.

    And the people that bump every minute cause no one is answering is unbelievable.Like the ones no one gets an answer and 2 minutes later they are like

    ***!!!!Why arent you pople anSwerng Meh!! Om

    Like the guy asking 5 times which redcats better when there the same damn vehicle with a different shell only lol

    I also like people who ask for opinions and get pissed off when people give them

    last thing I cannot stand is when some noob asks which is better Nitro or electric and it erupts into a 10 page flame war. (ok I lie the 1st few pages are usually hilarious but usually after 3-4 pages till its locked are usually boring)

    I was kinda taking shots at him and hoping someone noticed without me having to be specific.

    Those are great too

    I love the electric vs nitro,but...The first few pages, are good.Some are good arguments, as you said, they are amazingly funny and a great read But after...People just run out of things to say.

    Nitros better!It uses gas!!Yay!Take that ozone!

    Electrics better!Nitro put the hole in the zone layer!!
    (Traxxas fanboy)

    Whats an oz0ne layer?

    Electric doesnt have sound!N00bs!

    Nitro....Blows!Yeah take that!Tree hugger

    Man I guess this is just some people. Me and a friend of mine were out at his lake house in the middle of no where without a single hobby shop around. We were driving a savage and a buggy. The front aluminum hinge pin carrier snapped and the hinge pin broke in half. 2 hours later....WE WERE DRIVING IT AGAIN!!! How?! We found some scrap aluminum and went to it with a saw and some grinders. We used one of the NON-broken carriers as a template, and we machined our own!!!!!! It is twice as strong!!! Then we went to the local hardware store and found a drill bit that was the same diameter as the hinge pins. We sanded the edges off of it and VOILA!!!! We had a new hinge pin, and a new carrier and was driving again!!!

    ive actualy been thanked before, sent me a pm and all. it makes it worth in a way

    @supamagician : thats what im talking about!!!! a++

    bdw lets try not to knock on specific individuals, its a public forum ad everyone can read it, which means you may push ppl away instead of letting them feel wecome in this hobby. the simplest thing can rub ppl the wrong way. i know i could poke at atleast a few of you and vice versa

    Yeah I was more than pleased with the outcome. My grandpa was a machinist and has taught me well He always told me there is no sense in buying a new part unless you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO!!! I HIGHLY doubt that "hinge pin" we put in will EVER break LOL

    No one specific.He/she double spaced once and i made it single space,so technically.

    And that was made right after me and someone else were ranting about that, and i found it quite funny and kinda ironic so i put it up.[sm=angel_smile.gif]

    I do watch what i post, hate to get on the bad side of a mod[sm=47_47.gif]
