Listen ******, I don't know who you think you are, but if you come at me ever like that ever again you're going to be in trouble. You're an ugly, 150-pound ************, fed from the bottle rather than the teet. I bench press over 300 pounds, and that's just my warmup. What about you? I take 13 protein shakes a day, I'm on 3000g of test/day, as well as stacks of **** you haven't even heard of. You don't want any of this. Just so you know I'm a successful MMA/free-fighter trained by Kimbo Slice; I'm legally required to tell you this, and since you know now what happens next I'm not liable for. Don't make me repeat myself, this is your last warning.

I don't understand this forum really at all.. I've been around forums since I was 12, and for most part they aren't like this. a Person who has under 10xxx posts makes a thread, his question, unanswered or answered, but is harrassed if he doesn't "go with the flow". I don't believe I said he was wrong, I simply asked for another opinion, or more options. Keep in mind there is not only one way to do something correctly.

Anywho, I'm new to this forum persay, been on here for few months, more observing than posting but everyonce and awhile I post up, and because some cyber-jerk feels like hating on me for something stupid, and he happens to be in a rather high forum level, say, a moderator or well-liked member in the community, and I go to say something back, I'll get even more badgered for that, or possibly banned?

Now I read majority of rules here, and I enjoy the forum abit. It's pretty chillax, but there seems to be some hypocritical posting going on here.

If you cannot take the hate, don't dish it. I realize I'm complaining about some people " hatin' " right now, and prettymuch went off on a kid a few posts ago, although the subject of this post is somewhat of different intention.


That's just my 2cents, not that anyone over 50posts cares about it.

As much as I don't want to stop the jokes... WTF I'm feeling generous. Re-read your bitchy post everyone is quoting. It's not that anything is as you say, it's just because you're being a clueless douche.

clueless is an opinion, whats clueless to you may or may not be to me, and vise versa..

I'll be first person to admit I don't know **** about cars, in comparision to 99% of this forum.

Lynch me because of it? You can't learn if you don't try, and you won't get answers if you don't ask questions. I'm trying my best here, learning alot everyday, but its not a black/white thing..

It's irritating as hell to join a forum, and being welcomed, if you call it that, by a bunch of jagoff's who can't do anything better but criticize you because you don't know as much as something and other as they know about that certain subject.

Ugghhhh geez dude there you go again being clueless. It has NOTHING to do with car knowledge. it's called social skills, you may have heard it referred to as street smarts.

Personally, I do not see a difference in my posts and various other posts made in this forum by old or new members, and some moderators. And I'm really not that bent out of shape, I feel fine now, I'm living my life away from the forums just as good as I was before I got on.

I guess I simply find it irritating the maturity level of this place is much lower, although i share interests with many people here and their cars [coilovers and suspension, forced induction] as opposed to m.net.


ohwell this thread is a waste of time for anyone searching through the suspension section and seeing it get raised to the top every time we post.

soo, back to suspension. Why have one of my friends suggested I stay away from sleeves? is there a downfall/pro to them?

Lol he's a honda boy, that'd make sense, what are the pro's of them in your opinion though? He didn't really describe any con's so I have trouble having any bias towards or against them right now

That's just it, there aren't really any pros or cons, coilovers are simply superior to non-coilover setups. Period. Do you or don't you want ride height adjustment? Check yes or no. The ability to adjust ride height is always a pro.

The only real argument I guess you could make is extra money/hassle, but on the miata it was so cheap and easy to do it, if you make that argument you're either;

A: a bitch
B: full of ****

???
FCM kit: 1600

Me:
ebay kit: 60
springs: 150
OEM bilsteins: 200
revalve: 400
mounts and misc: 60
total: 870, less if you already have bilsteins.

that's about 1/2 of a "good kit".
