I agree with you 110% Doug. I'll be helping you move threads around in the SVT forums also. If it's SVT related, it'll stay, if not, it'll be moved.

I just find it easier to browse threads and to search for things when I know where to expect them.

If I'm looking for taillight options I wouldn't think to search in Duratec Performance, because it's not related to that. Same thing with like "my door locks freak out", well that's Technical, not really the engine.

I know you guys are slightly different in that the SVT is a limited run, but a Lot of the stuff overlaps with other hatches too, especially exterior/interior stuff, so it doesn't seem like an SVT-specific owner would be more qualified than anyone else to peruse it or offer ideas.

i guess this could be where the "snobbish" attitude that us svt owners have been known to have may come from then, huh? we feel that our cars are SOOOOOOOOOOO special, that we only want to talk to others that own the same car... now, i myself admit to having this problem, but not exactly like i stated above. i'm very proud to own my car, and i've only actually seen like 6, maybe 7 of them driving around in my life. i've only had the chance to personally TALK to one person who owns an svt focus... i just think its neat that we can all get together on here together and bath in the joy of owning our cars.

i, myself have the same problem wd40 has. i've got limited time to search the forums, and so i find myself just sticking to the svt forums. i've gotten to know some of the people, and i feel very comfortable talking to most of them about anything. i totally see where you guys are coming from though. keep up the good work, please!

I honestly think that the posting rules on this SVT forum are gay and need to be changed. I just saw a post get moved about running rich? How does that not have to do with the engine? oh wait...IT DOES! Running rich is the engine dumping more fuel than air! Plus I am a snob and I'll say it straight up. I dont want a bunch of ZX3,5,etc tools diagnosing my car and the SVTPerformance site doesnt give 2 craps about the focus forums. I have gotten a lot of useful information on this site and really do appreciate all of it, except for the fact that this forum should pertain to all related SVTF issues. All the reg foci barely share anything with the SVTF besides the frame. We have a diff interior, stereos, engine, head, catbacks are diff, our brakes are bigger, our tranny is diff, our rims, tire sizes, suspension,most of the mods are SVT specific on most sites, etc. I don't want someone diagnosing my SVTF according to what some doofus did to his ZXwhatever! I'm not trying to rant or bash any moderators, I just think this needs to be taken into consideration. Plus the fact that people will respond based on their ZX3,5,SE,LX, etc and then you will have to reply again and say it's for an SVT, and it just gets all confusing and long! Seriously this forum should contain anything technical about the SVTF and would make it a helluva lot easier on the moderators too, because I think some posts should have been moved according to the current rules, and some of the posts shouldn't have been moved according to the current rules. If my "rule" were to take effect....anything technical being discussed about the SVTF would be allowed to stay and most other online forums do this.

^^^^ you crack me up man, and the beginning of this thread had me rolling lol

actually this is the first time me reading this thread

i don't think it's that hard to follow these posting rules however, i remember one time i had a cel and i posted it in the svt owner's lounge instead of the technical chat because i just wanted other svt owners to read it and help me with it! i agree with some of the others who say they sometimes just want to talk to other svt owners and not the zx3, 5, se, lx or whatever guys. i like the other foci and i'm not trying to be a dick or snobby or anything, that's just how i feel

ok, once again the performance section is getting out of hand.
Please post your questions in the correct areas.
If it's not a bolt on, flasher, or custom performance part, it doesn't belong here.
