Re: what happened to this board?

I don't think that Hypsi's death has anything to do with the decline. I know what happened to some people. Others have just gone maybe to other boards, maybe left the lifestyle, some still post occasionally. However, some left after the drama involving carrrnuttt and some of the staff. The bitch is that it's gained momentum and turned into the snow ball effect and just took more and more people with it.

I'd love to see this place turn back into the forum I had to come to everyday to keep in line.

See, this is why we can't have a nice board with you taking care of people all willy nilly.

Re: what happened to this board?

LS1? Where?!

Back when I had my LS1......




Sorry boys, I'm all grown up now... work too damn much to have any fun. I have projects lined up but no time... or really funds to do much with them.

I've got a few things happening in the background, if they go the way we're planning I'll have more racing stuff to post about. Not street racing, but real racing stuffs. Anywho, Hope everybody is still doing well.

Keep it safe out there.

Re: what happened to this board?

I miss reading all the stories on here. I pop in from time to time if anyone remembra me or ever knew who I was lol. I agree with everyone else in thinking that people have gone to more specific forums. I know that is the case with me, but I still get on here a little. Havent gotten too many races lately but I've been out of town off and on all summer with work and family and just random stuff.

Im hoping to get to the drag strip within a month though. Just installed my meth kit so i have some tuning to do this week. Hoping to run a mid low 13 at 106-108 on my tiny ass drag radials! Haha

Re: what happened to this board?

I just kinda stopped racing. Lost its appeal to me. I have more important things for my meager pay checks to go towards right now that are part of the "move forward and onward in life" expenses. That and my car is basically falling apart. I dunno, I guess I just got tired of it, especially after my last ticket where I really should have gotten arrested. Just one of those things I guess.

Besides, around here there are only three places to really meet up. One has been taken over by...to put it very politely "ethnic" groups with their pickup trucks that are all slammed with five inch wheels and stupid ass paint job, one is 100% ricers and the cops basically watch it and at 10 pm they swoop in and ticket everyone, and the third has been taken over by these cocksuckers who go by the name "Rice Killers", where if you don't have at the very least an 11 second Mustang or 'Maro, then they try to run you off. Almost all of them have Vipers, modded Vettes, M5s, stuff like that and they think their shit don't stink. Its just annoying.

Re: what happened to this board?

It's because cassiesman left me.

No seriously, car is/will be too fast to race (aiming for low 10s without nitrous), the daily is too slow to be any fun.

Then I'm growing up too so it's losing appeal. Street stuff there are too many people to get hurt and the cops don't show older people as much slack, then there is the cost factor. Total bummer.

Oh I'm well aware of this! I'm just making the best of the HEATon...I mean eaton for the time being. Next year (or whenever lol) I'm gonna either throw a TVS (1.3L blower) on and just aim for 325-350whp or twincharge and push 400-450whp. Ill see what my funds an priorities are when the time comes. I have all the supporting mods for the TVS now that i got meth so i could literally have that on and driving and a base map in in 20 minutes. Funny how that works haha
