Thumbs up What would you guys like to see in a Mustang site?

We know there are several Mustang sites, but all of them have problems to go with the positives. What are some of the things that you guys/gals would like to see on HighTechMustang, and what are some of the things you don't want to see?

Feedback is encouraged!

no bickering or people thinking they are better than others just b/c they have a faster car or nicer car.

MORE TECH and LESS TALKIN ABOUT BS! hehe. I was just about to make a post asking "So where's the tech at?" after I read the latest posts.

A size limit on Signatures (Banner imgs AND text length). People don't like scrolling through a signature as long as a book to get to the next post on the thread.

A yearly / semi-yearly meet at the track or something like that. Nothing is better than putting faces with the names.

Someone to sponsor my car with the parts I need to upgrade on my motor (porting, cam, stroker kit). LOL.

That's not asking for too much is it?

All it takes is folks to start posting 'tech Fred, you've got metric tons of information on things we find simple, but others likely haven't tackled personally. Your subframes rock, your gear installs are absolutely meticulous, etc. Once people get used to asking questions, its easier to jump in with the answers. Right now, its mainly a bunch of guys who already have quite a bit of base knowledge and built cars. Once more folks on here get their hands on new setups and cars, tech swap will come naturally.

A simple walk though on Gear installing would be awesome Fred! I mean you have to remember on how common gear installs are on Mustangs. I am going to start some things on a build up of a big twin turbo DOHC 4.6 we are doing at work, on top of our NMRA racing season, etc.

We need Neighbors. I mean the guy machined down his own shims for a tranny rebuild because he didn't have the exact one

Yup... I'm not even going to begin to lecture on gear installs b/c everything I know I learned from the man, the myth, the legend... Chris Neighbors...

He wrote this article which is on my site and many many many others out there on the web (with his permission)... http://pomoforacing.com/tech/FTWOG.pdf (Need Acrobat Reader to view)

Btw, no one wanted to take me up on the car sponsorship idea??? Come on! It's likely a 9 sec true street 4r70w car with portwork and a even a simple engine rebuild.

Can we get this as a sticky of whats expected of people? Also a mustang/LS1 get together would be awesome. Maybe organize four meets at different geographical regions so everyone can meet but not have to drive so far.
