Default Attention Newbies! Useful Little Suggestion From A Newb.

Coming from a newb, this is how you do not do it:

1) Capitalize.
2) This is a Miata forum. Generally people here know about and like Miatas.

Followed with:

These little cars are fun they last forever and you can beat the **** out of em. Parts are inexpensive and with a little work you can give pritty much anyone on the road a run for their money. how many European cars can you say that about... non, they are built to break down and hard to work on, not to mention the fact that mercedes, BMW, Auti, VW etc. are drastically over priced and most of them break down within the first few months of purchase. They are just status symbols, non of those companies have sold a vehicle that can function at its full potential for years they are all playing the consumers, especially in the US. If you want a car that can last and run at high performance go Japanese or even the newer GM cars, as much as i hate to say it GM is finally making good cars, its about time since they have been making computer chips for NASA for years GM is sitting on the most advanced computer technology in the world, surpassing even Japan and China.
1) Arguing with people who know more than you/are not newbs and may in fact just be poking some fun is relatively high on the lame scale.
2) Capitalize for the love of god.
3) WTF?

1) If students at MIT are this dumb we are 'pritty' screwed as a country.
2) If you are going to bother lying, try harder.

I then point my (right) foot and slide my (right) leg through the (right) pant leg, and then point my (left) foot and slide my (left) leg through the (left) pant leg. I then pull my pants up to about hip level and then pull them down about 3 inches to straighten my boxers, maybe add a small twist to acquire ultimate comfort... any other questions?
It gets better. Really.

hey MSMjohn do you know how to double clutch? i couldn't tell if you were or not, but if you double clutch and keep high RPM's through the turn, you can keep your Turbo spooled up and get quicker acceleration out of those turns.

you don't, double clutching is a downshift technique its used to keep rpm's high so that you can get faster, greater measurements of torque out of your engine when accelerating out of turns.

yea ive never had any problems with my cam bearing's, it usually is weird stuff that goes out first, ive had to do some make shift welding to reinforce the floor pans and some other stuff.

In short, the useful suggestion is as follows: Admit ignorance, and try to remedy it:

Even a decent attempt at capitalization and punctuation will help quite a bit too.
