...By the way, since currently the "Hero member" is the highest rank (and it looks like it is a piece of cake to reach that for some person), I will need suggestions to new ones.  Could you guys help me with that?

I am open to any kind of ideas, really.  Can be car related, or not... It can promote or even demote someone. Nothing is wrong with a title called "Very Advanced Newbie" with 800+ posts Smiley

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.

Understeer is when the driver is scared, oversteer is when the passenger is scared.

We should rework the whole "rank" list so that it mirrors our actual clesses, then prioritize them by order of manliness.

So the loest level of posts would rank you 'HS', then gradually increasing to the manliest of all macho classes  -  'EM'.

Why stop at just "manliest"?  If you added F125 to your rank levels you could climb to a "Godliness" designation?

You should see CP at the Nationals. Fifty or more of them in one place. They can put a hurt on a buffet table.

I have a video that shows the mid-80's group-B cars (that Audi is one example) driving on a WRC stage in Portugal before the big pair of accidents that killed the Group-B cars altogether. By this time, it had turned into a game to see how late you could wait to leave the middle of the lane before the car got there... There's in-car footage that shows what looks like a sea of people that magically parts just as the 80mph sideways car gets to them.

I can't understand how there weren't hundreds more fatalities than there were...
