It should be "You old trolls", with no apostrophe. The apostrophe indicates either possessive tense (eg, "the troll's cat," meaning the cat which belongs to the troll) or a contraction (eg, "the troll's going Delaware for vacation this summer.")

The "I" is always capitalized when referring to yourself in the first person, including when it is used in contractions such as I'll (I will) or I'm (I am).

The C in Clemson should also be capitalized, as Clemson is a proper noun.


For what it's worth, most of the grammar ***** are kids. Us old folks don't generally care about such matters. And the forum has made it so far because we are awesome.


Seriously, though. Welcome aboard. And just so you know, you don't need to avoid saying "********" or "fucksticks" here.

If you want to get trolled by old people, go to miata.net.

If you'd rather hang out with young hipsters that don't give a **** about grammar, hard data, or knowledge in general - go to clubroadster.net.

If you want to go fast, learn ****, and probably get flamed, stay here.
I mean there is a lot of info on here and most of you guys are pretty cool but there are one or two individuals that just have nothing better to do. As far as tuning goes i'm going to have a dyno tune session on monday.

That's because this place doesn't revolve around you.

See the millions of threads with actual data in them, rather than "immature young fucksticks" (you can swear on the internet it's ok) showing off their plastidip and hoodrisers. If you haven't read the recent thread about ignition timing by JoeP, I suggest you do so. It is fascinating, and I don't even have a standalone to adjust my timing yet.
I don't want a standalone, I had msns on my eclipse and they seem to be nothing but a headache.

This isn't an Eclipse, and you do want a standalone.

maaaaaaaannnnnnnn i'm going to get it dyno tuned for 15 psi and make sure my duty cycle is not to high. I have some kind of piggy back system under my passenger seat, when I bought the car it had a long usb cord coming from underneath the floor mat. Previous owner said some guy that worked for or was affiliated with FM built the car, definitely tuneable with some kind of device.

Is "going Delaware" a euphemism for something? What does it mean? How do the people of Delaware feel about this?

So you don't know what's making your own car run? I'd suggest figuring that out.

How do you intend to measure duty cycle without knowing how to tune the car? HKS IPM?

How about a photo of this device under you are passenger seat. The only piggyback which FM supplies is the Voodoo box, which has no computer interface at all. The Hydra (their top-line ECU) uses RS-232, however it's common to install a USB-to-serial adapter onto it. You may well have an awesome ECU already and not know it.

I'm just going to start installing USB connectors in cars I'm selling. They won't be connected to anything, just a wire going back underneath a seat or behind some carpet.

Yeah bro. Then you can tell the buyers that they can go dyno tune and turn it up to 15psi and they can check their duty cycle.

Why do i HOPE this car has a Hydra on it? I would LOVE to see OP deal with that thing.

This is typed from a smartphone too. Crazy I know; capitalization, punctuation, and contractions from a phone.

If your water is breaking, I'd suggest putting the phone down and taking care of business.

I sometimes have a hard time typing in Gmail, because it doesn't autocorrect like the android app does. I have to go back and fix my laziness before I send it.

I've been working on cars for longer than you've been alive. I've forgotten more about old stuff (points, anyone?) than most ricers will ever know. There are those here that have not only tuned their cars, but helped to develop the parts and electronics that make our cars go faster, run smoother and handle better.

Like most people that have invested time and energy into learning something as throughly as this, we like to share our knowedge with those that will use it and build on it. But we also demand you communicate in a manner that is easy to read and understand. Deriding those that can help you the most is not the way to ingratiate yourself with the group. Learn to play by the long established rules, or GTFO.

I hate when I get regular life stuff that prevents me from reading the forum for a day or two and I miss out on some good flaming :(.

Because nobody has told you this yet I have a few things i'd like to add.

1) I thought the first picture was your new car or some representation of something you did and was proud of only to see it uglified(v).

If you like it though then keep it cause only some dumb poser would care what we actually thought.

2) Hood risers are not functional and stupid.

Again. If you like it, keep it.

3) Where's the list of mods. wtf are you driving? If i had a non stock car i'd definitely want to know how the hell it was doing & what it was doing.

Concealer I highly doubt this car has a hydra. By looking at it, it would appear everything was mostly diy and ebay. I'd be surprised if there was anything somewhat reputable on the car.

OP i do like your car in the first picture. Inspect your car and figure out what you got going on; or don't I don't mind watching the **** show.

jacked form his other thread
