Special request to update your posts to NOT include the gigantic banner ad in every single one of your posts? I have signatures disabled, so it looks like you're manually adding that every single time...?

Someone tell me I'm not the only one that thinks that's a bit over the top?

Anyhoo, back on topic...

I can't figure out if its repetition that you can't stand or wwddww34. Maybe you don't like either one of them.

It's *not* personal on any level. It does make reading the posts a bit awkward when you suddenly have to start scrolling left and right to read each post - just throws off the formatting. Once in a while, fine. On every page of the thread (when it's an unpaid ad to boot...)

Enthusiasm for the hobby or support for your local track, never a bad thing. Proper presentation in moderation: priceless

And on that note I just noticed that it was downsized... thank you!

I like the looks of this Speed Passion Reventon ESC that was just added to the USVTA list of approved speedos.

Now where can I get one? Speed Passion's web page has none in stock.

Maybe I'm missing something. His banner or signature doesn't cause any issues on my iPhone or iPad or laptop. The thread still reads up and down just like anyone else's post. Maybe we all should the same enthusiasm he does about supporting VTA. Putting someone on the ignor list because of a banner or pictures. Really! And to imply he killed the last thread. Come on. I for one appreciate the stuff he post, and if it wasn't for him I would never have been able to join VTA. When the whole tire shortage was happening he offered to and gave me his last set of new front tires so I could race. Thanks sharpie.

That does look nice. Hope it has better brakes than the cirtix.

I see that. I agree that big banners and big pictures make scroll bars show up and it makes the page a bit wonky. It just seemed that every time you didnt' like something on the thread it was a post from the same guy. So I wondered if he hacked you or is dating your daughter or something.

That wasn't what was causing the 10 empty pages of redirects, but picture scaling does help. Its probably good the admins started a new thread and started it with the link to old one on the first page. I personally need to learn how to do thumbnails. I think those are pretty slick. From what I read, I have to create the thumbnails, then use the thumbnail as a link to the full sized picture.
