    >>How To Use The Search Feature<<

    mods, please sticky this!

    i think the biggest problem that everyone has is they dont know how to properly use the search feature.

    maybe youre being too specific.. maybe you search and only look at the first result which isnt what you wanted.. here are some things that will help you.


    lets pic a topic:

    turbo timers

    1) click on the SEARCH BUTTON.


    2) next, type in what youre looking for and hit search. (i usually chose the "search thread" radial button) heres what we come up with.



    BOVS? bugeye mafia? michigan roll call? WTF i didnt ask for this! i want to know about turbo timers!

    this is where most people go wrong!

    however, heres a trick which will definitely help you.

    3) once you pull up the search results, to help you out further simply hit CTRL+F on your keyboard! this will activate the find button on your browser. type in TURBO TIMER.. if there are no results on the first page, click on the second page.




    4)the next step is pretty obvious. click on all the links related to the subject at hand. by the end of the search you'll have all of your questions answered! (i usually look through the first 5-6 pages just incase)

    NOTE: If you run a turbocharger beyond itís compressor efficiency range, it will turn into a flame thrower.

    add in searching in titles only. if i cant find what im looking for i search turbo timers for example as titles only. that way i make sure the thread is about the topic i want.
