Welcome to The Track - READ ME first

Postby NSimkins » Sun Jul 30, 2006 6:31 am

Welcome to "The Track" forum!

This new forum (replacing the Racing forum) is designed for discussions of all LEGAL racing events, autocross, drag racing, closed track road racing, and technical racing aspects.

The transition to The Track forum was due to various issues that have cropped up over the past months. This change is not due to any one specific event, and to be honest, was a long time coming. Before anyone throws a fit about this new format, please be aware this was done for the overall benefit of the Forum. Please contact myself or a Moderator in private before deciding to vent in public, or your post will be removed.

We've had issues in the past where threads were posted here which caused other "non-Vibe/Matrix" communities to create false member identities on GVC to post rude and inflammatory posts and cause excessive, unnecessary work for our Moderators whom already strive to keep the site a friendly place to belong. Also, under guidance from our other sister sites, we've moved to this new format to thwart any other issues that may arise from posting questionable (legality-wise) threads here.

Please note, any posts which the Moderators feel is violating our description of this forum will be removed immediately.

Feel free to contact any one of us if you have any further questions. We do appreciate your understanding.

-Nick

Thank you Nick and all the mods for doing this. We needed to tighten the reigns on this area of the site. We do not condone illegal street racing and you guys having done this will take care of it. Thank you!

I will have to check out Rock Falls Raceway in Eau Claire, WI or Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, MN sometime.

Great idea Nick!

It did get a little old when people started challenging the original members post as to "how could your Vibe beat a (insert car)" OR "There is no way a Vibe could have beat a (insert car)". The point of the old forum or this new one is to either congrat the person on their racing experience or talk about the experience, not bicker back and forth about it and make the person defend themselves!

The my car is better than your car just needs to stop!

No one on this site has the fastest car in the world, period!

exactly. with LEGAL racing, people get time slips to PROVE their wins and loses. it levels the field too. it's unfair to say you beat another person if there are too many variables or the other wasn't actually racing. not to mention, the legal ramifications and risk of personal injury to oneself or others by doing so illegally.

racing is fun and relatively safe when done so in a LEGAL or organized way. if you're going to make claims, better be able to back it up!
