The problem is that people ask pro drivers the same stupid questions over and over. i.e. What is a good set up for my TC3? usually by the time you get to the fourth page of the thread, there are already way too many repeats. Plus, there are too many stupid people on the internet.

I don't blame the pros for not coming on here.

so i guess you are stupid too!
people will always ask questions and to you because you may know the answer someone else is just starting out and really doesnt know it may not be stupid to them , i can bet everything r/c i own that at one time or another you may have asked a stupid question like what is the best setup wether to a buddy or fellow racer !

The only stupid question is the question that is not asked (learned that one years ago )

That is an urban myth, I believe that the only stoopid question is the one that has been asked twenty times before,

Default The only Stupid question

Guys;

People tend to overlook the obvious, even if its about to bite their Face off. Some of us are better at certain things than others. This is the Human way. So questions will be asked and there will always be plenty of us here to answer them (even if they seem stupid), so never be afraid to ask.

As to Barry, I think there was 4+ pages of questions after his first day on the board. This can be just too overwhelming for anyone. Kind like the Paparazzi's and the Movie Stars.

The one I remember is....

There is no such thing as a stupid question, only stupid answers.

And at work I've come to know this way too much and too often..

If you make something idiot-proof, they will make better idiots...
