Fair enough everyone is perfectly entitled to their point of view and that's yours, but I do have to say I think that it is a bit narrow-minded, when you consider that there are an abundence of "styling" sections on this forum - and the styling of someone's car is often far more "chavvy" that the performance of it and that hasn't really lead to this forum becoming "chavified"
Also would stopping people from discussing the results of tuning tips that they may well have found on this forum not be distintictly close-minded?

Not everybody owns a fiat to drive on the road.

In case anyone missed it I think that was a plug of his Turbo Forum and ClubFirePower's forum (www.clubfirepower.co.uk) If people are looking for more performance leaning information then it may be an idea to have a looksie at either of these options (1/4 mile times welcomed )

Re: 1/4 mile time list

I reported the thread and deleted the posts, the discussion had got waaaay off topic and was getting silly.

All this info is available in the other threads from other sections, we're just putting it all in one place by posting here. There's loads of threads containing "I've just done 130", so we're already a chav site then - nothing changes from this thread being here.

Re: 1/4 mile time list

Point is you deleted it because my opinion was different to yours. My subsequent posts and those of others may have been irrelevant but the first one was not.

If anyone reports a thread, then a new one gets started automatically backstage for the moderators to comment upon.

Common courtesy to let the other mods know what we're up to.

Sorry Pete but I have to say there wasn't much wrong with the thread & I think what you did amounts to censorship!

Re: 1/4 mile time list

I can't beleive folks are against a 1/4 mile time list It's a car forum, believe it or not, and this encompasses performance on the strip. There is nothing willy waving whatsoever in posting a 1/4 mile time, and is a measure of a cars performance. If I say "My car is currently 262BHP, with mods planned to increase this figure" is that willy waving?
Sorry if I am stoking up the fire here, I just couldn't beleive some folk can oppose a 1/4 mile time thread, on a car forum of all places !
If you don't like 1/4 mile times, don't look at the thread

Re: 1/4 mile time list

I still think that a complete motorsport section would be better, one that encompasses rallying, circuit/track racing, rallyx, drag racing anything that's either Fiats or fiat engined.

Re: 1/4 mile time list

bennyboy, i like your idea.

im sorry if i caused a stir by starting this thread but i was thinking more of a 1/4 mile list, not a forum (sorry if i put forum). something that could be updated etc.

but, a motorsport section sounds good, but it would have to be moderated properly to make sure it didnt end up chavvey
