Default How about an engine section?

Some place to discuss internal issues and motor builds, separate from the general section.

And also separate from the DIY section which seems to be a catch-all section for most members...

great idea.

I think an engine section would great. Would be great to have all info on built motors in one section.

How about a long rant on proper forum etiquette and use of the search button, followed by a short quiz that people must complete before registering or at least before posting outside of the meet and greet section....that possible?

Actually. i was commenting on the misspelling of the word HYDRA. It's misspelled in both this thread and the new subforum. But I guess that no one else noticed that.
