Title: PLEASE READ before you ask
Post by: George Herrin on May 18, 2006, 08:55:14 PM
This is advice for anyone wanting to know how to do  what ever it is you want to know how to do. I have noticed a rash of new threads where the same questions are being asked over and over. THIS forum is an encyclopedia of knowledge on anything from engine builds and tips to chassis builds. PLEASE take the time to read thru the posts. Nine times out of ten you will find the answers to your questions. Re-peated questions over and over tend to not get answered because they have been answered so many times. SO before you get flustered because your questions aren't answered chances are pretty high it has several times and you havn't took the time to read thru the post's. In saying this please keep threads on the subject that its listed under so not to cause confusion for the newbies or anyone else thats taking the time to read thru the posts. Then after reading thru the posts you have questions then by all means please ask away.  Want to just bench race or chat then use the coffee shop to do so. Most here are willing to help but remember repeated questions over and over tend to get passed over or not near the response it did when first asked.

And, I might add.... let us not forget the search feature guys, you'll find the Search link at the top of the page. It narrows your choices if you have a specific question! Yes it can be frustrating at times I know, but the more specific you are in your search query the more specific the board will be in returning results.

I might also add that these experts do not get paid to answer your questions.  

Please thank them for their help by giving them your business if you should ever have a need.

Some of the moderators and other helpers here don't even have mower or racing related businesses and are just helping because they love this sport.  They keep this site running clean, and they deserve our thanks and respect.
