This argument has gotten old and many of us that want to chat about more useful stuff are tired of it. Most of us can care less about what you use on the car; we are just glad that you have a GT car. This constant bickering is really counter-productive and does not help to contribute to the betterment of the class (if betterment is a word).
I have been spending a lot of time on an Alfa Romeo forum. Discussion came up as to what brand tyre is best for the car. No one took offense to the results..

Forums are meant for people to discuss their thoughts, ideas and opinions. On every thread on this forum at some point, someone points out their likes and dislikes.

Unfortunately on this particular thread, certain people seem to get defensive when someone states a certain product does not work out for them.

Here's a test: I've tried Sweep tyres don't seem to work for me.

I'm not making it up, this is a truthful statement from my experience. Was that statement that awful to say? I doubt anyone will jump down my throat for that statement.

Shall I continue to state what else doesn't work for me.. whoa... I better stop right there, cause I might offend someone.

Trash talk and competition go hand and hand.

Gashuffer,

The problem is that a lot of the aforementioned bickering goes well beyond trash talk and competitiveness. Much of it is on a more personal level. I would like for us to get past that point and be more constructive, period. Constructive criticism is one thing, the snipes, bickering, and feuding about the differences in opinions is what we can do without. I love this portion of the hobby but there are some days I want to sell all of my road gear and just fly planes and helicopters so that I don't have to deal with the soap opera drama.

Default Jeff Vargas the biggot

I just received a pm from Jeff Vargas, where he officially proved to me that he is a biggot.

FYI, I am Iranian, I was born there, however I'm eastern orthodox Christian. Unfortunately Jeff Ignorant Vargas assumed wrong. Enjoy the pm guys:

Thanks again!
1. Jai ran your slicks. I ran pmt
2. Jai liked your slicks for HB. For Corona he got lapped by SNR in first two heats and switched back to PMT
3. JHAD? You ignorant imbecile, I'm eastern orthodox Christian.. You probably have no clue what that is.

Nonetheless you have proven you're a bigot, and I'll share your pm with everyone in the thread.

Jeff has stooped to a new LOW What a surprise


This comes from the guy who is relentless with using the forums as his personal advertising catalog then attacks all others that have a different opinion then he does.

Hey jeff a little birdie told me that your "wide" tires and non realistic looking body will not be legal in the up coming rules. LMAO

Hold on tight jeff... get ur internet muscles ready

Point well taken.

I guess my only advice is not to let it get to you. Thats a driving force for even more criticism. There are those that like to lay it on thick

You see for every action there is a reaction. Let it go.

@ Raman you should of just kept your PM to yourself. If you had valid points, discuss them via PM.

This thread is not for me, but GT racing is. Lata

That pm was sent to you because of your constant negative rhetoric towards our brand. You’ve been personally against all of our products for years and your barrage of personal negativity, clearly demonstrate your irrational contempt towards anything we offer GT racers.

Great way to PROMOTE GT racing by tearing each other down yet again. It never ceases to amaze me how little regard some of you have for GT racing as to keeping continuing and rehashing personal vendettas.

Jlock,

You know damm well that if someone says anything good about our products they'll attack it. If not they'll post 500 pictures to try to bury it so nobody will see it.

This is so typical of the haters, heaven forbid if I give congrats for winning a race or thank someone for trying our stuff, it always the same crap from the same few.

All this started with them when FastPete WOW.
Thanks Pete, lol
