A functional wing is a great way to add weight in the rear. Dear god why did I just give him that idea.

I think he is an autoX-er if I remember.






















So he'll need one like this:

I think that has just a hair too much end plate to be legal.

I just read through the entire thread, and I loved it. There is some real ingenuity going on in that head of yours. Some ideas are good while execution may be a little "off".

Keep going, but if you feel that you want better everything, then just start re-doing stuff one piece at a time. You've got the experience now, it can still be turned around.

Too bad he's no very creative when coming up with new accounts to spam negative props and give himself postives.

Wait, what? He's banned!

Is there anywhere where we can read about the motivations for banning someone who is docile and basically harmless? He's never insulting to others or aggressive. From reading around, he only ever seems to care about his car, his auto-crossing and his engine control strategies. Certainly his last page of posts contained nothing remotely ban-worthy. So I'm super curious about the motivations behind this, it's got to be good.

Fred.

I did. I strongly doubt that he did that. If me giving him props for posts in which "he spoke far above the knowledge level of some of the people who formerly helped him" (good words, though not mine!) caused him to be banned on the assumption that he created more accounts, then it should likely be undone.

I seriously doubt it's an assumption.

As a moderator of your own forum I'd assume you know about the IP tracking tools available.

Well, I've been watching his prop count pretty closely. It only seems to go up into the positives after one of MY sessions ;-) In any case, the chances of these guys showing us some proof is slim to none, so it's a moot point.
