    This might sound quite novel, being that you're a veteran of Forums, but why not just ignore them instead of starting flame wars? Others have commented on RSXsucks' repetitive posts, and none have been as... uh..... unnecessarily straightforward as yours.

    [edit] I just saw your post in the "WRX v. 1988 Supra" thread in re RSXSucks. You were pretty much on the mark there. I don't see why you're losing it here though.

    I do admit that my posts have been very straightfoward. The biggest reason being only that I have seen the same thing happen on other forums, and they quickly went south after repeated posts like this. It really generated quite a bit of extra bandwidth that was unnecessary and really hurt the perfomance of the sites. I would not like to see this happen here. I am sorry if you deem it unnecessary, did not intend to start flame wars, just either run off the guilty parties, OR preferably, shows these individuals the light. Maybe they can still be reformed early.

    Yeah, well, while you and I are going on about his repetitive posts, we're using up bandwidth ourselves! If you're so concerned about this site's bandwadith and performance, why not be a moderator? Or let them do their job and make a complaint to them? I've been posting on this board for some time, and I've found it to be very friendly and informative. There's a "we're among friends" attitude here. I'd like to think open hostility is just as unwelcome as repetitive posts.

    I didn't know my posts would cause such a stir. I wasn't bashing all VW's. If you took that way I am sorry. I owned 2 VW bugs and a VW bus. They broke down like everyday. And the exhaust systems were always coming apart. I just had bad experiences with them. But that's where I learned to work on cars. Kind of a neccesity. And let me rephrase my quesiton. Not all VW's are POS. Just air cooled VW cr@p.

    But I still have the motor from my bug. It is a 1776cc, balanced and blueprinted, counterweighted crank, 041 heads that have been ported and polished, 1 5/8 exhaust to stinger, and dual 40mm Dellortos. Also have a racing tranny. Anyone know a cheap Porsche Speedster kit out there I can throw this motor and tranny into?

    well,

    I am at school most of the time and I would always read the forum instead of getting my typing work down(even though I am way far ahead from everyone else in the class) and it was always fun to read. That is why I joined, I love cars and the wrx is one of favorites. My cousin drives a handy blue one. I wasn't trying to be mad, but I really thought that comment about the wrx being a suv was very funny. I still think its funny.

    Btw, I am Verdugo's cousin

    POS? What makes the car POS? Problematic? or poor build quality? Or cheap interior?

    I read the post and it didnt seem like much WRX bashing was taking place. Why are you being so defensive? Are you pissed that your car is no bigger of a POS than that GTI that "raced" the WRX?

    I'm tired of seeing posts that talk about how a chipped 1.8t will keep up with a stock wrx. Ok, throw a chip in the WRX and see what happens.

    You can make any car faster.

    Oh, and the I-club bashing , I think it provides lots of insight about our cars and on every forum you have to sift through the crap (and the jerks) to find what you need.
