Default Noob looking for Mod info? GREAT THREAD!!!

Hey guys, I just thought I would compile a list of useful/informational threads that can give different perspectives on all of the major topics on the forum, rather than just one person's "this is the best gears, supercharger, exhaust, etc". Basically I am open to replies with suggestions of a good thread, and I will update it when I have time. I know my initial thread list is not a lot but I think it is something that can grow and become very informative for new guys or even those that have been around for a while. It will not be perfect but it could possibly eliminate some of the duplicate threads and frustration of the regular users that are tired of seeing the same threads. Moderators may obviously delete the thread if they believe this is a bad idea, it is all in good intentions and I hope it will be useful. Thanks to any that contribute and use it.

Yeah that is a nice thread, I just wanted to see if I could get something similar in this section but allow it to be more inclusive. With a lot of our topics there really isn't one answer, so its nice to bring in more input.

And as far as being bored, I was working at the desk at my dorm so I really didnt have anything better to do...and surprisingly it only took about 30mins.

O and the name doesnt ring a bell but its possible that I see him around or just didnt catch his last name.

I agree this should be its own sticky if thats possible, I like it and think it would cut down on questions that a lot of us including myself answer often.
