Default RC-Touring.net

Hello everyone,

We've just launched a new website only dedicated to electric touring cars.

RC-Touring.net

We are already editing some news and we have an important link base.
Very soon it will be possible to down load set-up sheet.
Our forum and galleries are already working.

Right now we are looking for some people to write articles about their chassis like it's done in the Japanese RC World and RCM, they are called "long time report" , each month they have 1 or 2 pages about the same chassis, for example they will give updates about a certain car, test the new options, different bodies...We would like to do something similar in our website with the most different chassis as possible, it doesn't have to be very long. So ifyou are interested to participate in this project feel free to e-mail us.

Thank you for reading
Best regards.

Gilles Uzan

You need to fix your coding.... It should not pop up a new window while browsing within the site, unless it's to an image or external link.... Also, you're popup has no address bar or navigation buttons... Most people don't know that Alt-left arrow is back and what if they want to just return back to the message list...

Other than that, keep up the good work....

Hard to type with a crying baby on your lap also...

Patriiick, utieh, just added you to my resources site, see my sig, if you decide to sign up I'll give you control of your listing. Link me!

Totally agree on the pop-ups though, putting your forum in a pop-up without navigation is a Very Bad Idea. For one, it makes it almost impossible to link to directly.

Also the link color is almost invisible on some monitors, need to add a little contrast there.

Sorry fot the late reply!

I don't really now about all the technical stuff (Patriiick does) but in my case (OS9/IE5 and XP/Mozilla) I didn't have this pop-up problem, I'll as him when he comes back.

The only thing we really designed if the front page banner, do you now how could we change the color of the texts? it's obviously too dark some times.
Patriiick downloaded this template but I'm not sure if it is editable.

Rocnbil, I have to open a new section inour link base, I will add your lin as soon as possible (Did you do all yoursellf??? this is huge,especially considering there is a small description each time! It's a really useful tool!)

I'm using Mozilla with XP and I got it as pop-up's with no navigation.... I run any site I build through IE, Netscape and Mozilla.... I use Mozilla myself because it's the fastest out of the 3... I should get Opera, but I know no one who uses it...

Yes, and the programming - the searching, members functions, database, etc - all programmed myself, it's what I do for a living.

About three months to build it, and have been adding links and articles over the last six months, all build in the evenings after my "day job." Still so very much to do . . .
