There is zero need to mention FJ in the title. It implies that we don't have our own fair share of BS, which we do.

I've read through enough on their' forum to agree,
but they like to censor anything that might take away from
their' business, which takes away from the helpfulness of it all
I think I'm gonna register there and read through there
rules and what not see if that is in there

I get the impression fj caresmore about selling THEIR parts, not helping the focus community. Anybody know the answer to this btw?
Yes SOME intakes do have lean/rich conditions when there added but it can be corected with a proper tune , a tune to correct it properly would need to be done on a dyno with a wide band

BS ? You mean like you locking a post here on FF then going to fj and asking randy from fs if he would like you to unlock it so he could post and have the last word ? Thats BS to me ! whers your loyalty to FF

There is a big difference in BS and misinformation , BS most people can see through, misinformation not all know it is wrong and some depending on who it is coming from may take it as they know what there talking about

I've really tried to stay out of this, because this is an issue that has been going on for a while. Goat Roper...I am beginning to lose the respect I had for you. You are stopping just short of defending those guys over at FJ. They don't deserve any help. Yes, this forum has some BS, ALL forums have BS. Here's the difference between theirs and ours...ours is a couple of guys joking around, and NOBODY takes the comments seriously. Our BS is things like saying "Oh my grandmother drives stick better than you, and she's only got one leg! HAHAHA!" That's funny, not meant to be taken seriously, and nobody does. FJ posts hateful remarks like "u r stoopid, use the search. I figured it out, you should be able to." That doesn't help anyone. They censor what ought not be censored, they're rude, crude, and socially unacceptable (BTW I speak of their comments, not the people themselves). I haven't personally met any of the guys on FJ, so I can't comment about them as people, but their comments leave a lot to be desired. Now I'm tired of all the FJ vs FF crap. The debate is like a fart in a stiff wind...it does nothing except cause a lot of stink. Let us be content that we take pleasure in helping those less knowledgeable without degrading them.

I disagree. It's the topic and subject of the thread and implies that not all is well in paradise.

The diffficulty I'm having is why you waited 4days,the 2nd page, and the thread responses are all confirming the subject to make a post attempting to reprimand the poster. Should ahve been done in a pm on the side.

You didn't call randy would you ??

yeah i just don't go to fj anymore. i don't like it. they forums aren't nearly used as much as these ones are anyway.

the thing that really got me pissed of at fj was when they were doign to tropheys at jetfest for the auto-x ron happily awarded himself first place for modified class (i think)

what a ????. he designed the course, he built the course, hey ran on the course dozons of times, then he runs in the competition and wins.. imagine that! his excuse (i didn't run in my car) well who give's an F if you ran in your car or not, you were in a focus, how differant can it be!

i'm not bad mouthing, i'm stating a fact."



That LAST Line is a DOOZY.
Show me ONE FACT in this post!
I Designed and Built that course.
Ron NEVER Drove it ONCE.
Ron Never "Claimed any Win".
I Never drove the full course in it's Entirety prior to the event.
I DID Test some sections for Safety purposes, but no full blown runs on the full course.
As Tom can tell you, my Pressure plate broke, and I never even finished the testing that I intended.
I don't know for sure, but Ron MAY Have ridden in someone's car, but he NEVER Drove it.
I Really Like Tom, and defend him on FJ any time that it's needed.
This bickering is ridiculous.
Many of you are acting like Jr High kids.
As Tom said, BEWARE of MISINFORMATION.
There's Plenty ANYWHERE you look.
