Thanks, futureal.

I like your website a lot. It's the best RC site I've found... I wish there were more product reviews! I like the ones you've done already. And FAQ's would be nice, concerning stuff that every newbie needs to know...

Keep up the good work!
Donovan

Hi friends. Greetings from Malta.

I have just read through this page and here are my comments, as a 2 or 3 times daily visitor.

There is some sense in what Donoman says.

I can think of a way of making life alot easier and RCtech alot more user friendly, but being a total idiot where computers are concerned I don't know if this is possible. If I'm just dreaming, please ignore.

How about a main subject file, say TC3. If you want anything TC3 related you go to that file first. That file then has a number of sub files, say TC3 handling, TC3 set up sheets, TC3 chassis mods, TC3 gearing, TC3 option parts, TC3 race talk, etc. etc.

Like I said, I don't know whether or not this is fesable, and even if it isn't I shant loose any sleep because I am perfectly happy with rctech just as it is.

Thank you Shane for giving me the opportunity to share opinions and information with like minded enthusiasts all over the World.

What would we all do without Shane and rctech.

Keep up the excellent work.

I know there is a search function, and I have used it. But posting a suspension question in "TC3 discussion" will yield one response and the question gets buried in the other BS, don't you think?

...

Basically, I'm with you on this. I've never understooded, why there's these hughe threads. But as Futureal says, use search with the "Show Results as Posts" - that'll make life a lot easier.

That said, I also find that this forum is by far the best RC Forum - thanks for that. I use it pretty much and have get used to the way it's run, so I'm happy with it as it is.

If you take a look, you'll see theres many threads about chargers for example... So RCTech got both kind of threads...

But concerning getting more people into the hobby, maybe we should shift to multithreading, instead of hughe-threading?

Donoman is right, it would be nice with some more product reviews. I'm in the process of making a review about the Eagle CDC 6 charger - dont know when it'll be finished, hopefully soon!

Maybe some other people will make some reviews, of what you've purchased?

I don't really have a problem with long threads. If I buy a new car I normally go into that one thread and find everything good and bad about that car.

Also you tend to have the same group of people that "hangs out" in certain threads, they normally know a fair bit about the car in question, however, don't be intimdated by these "old timers" they are usually fairly friendly!

I guess to make things easier we should have a "CAR" section in the forum and move all these long threads into there....

Yeah, "sub-topics" would be nice, but it may be too late to do that now.
