As many of you already know we are starting a racing club and these first few days have been very exciting for those involved. I can't begin to thank the forums enough for the warm welcome and look forward to helping the forums grow and prosper. Please remember that the forums have been kind enough to give the race club "Pit Stalls" and let's all try to help the forums attract new members and show a positive presence in all the many areas of the forums.

For those that have responded to our plead for help, thank you so very much and it's folks like you that are willing to give up free time for the greater good that will make this club endure through the ages, well, a decade or two anyway, lol. I have not responded to everyone that has applied to me for Pit positions but rest assured, myself or another club official will contact you by weeks end.

I don't like long lists of rules and I'm sure many others feel the same way but they are necessary for organizational purposes and I will try to be brief. I'm sure there will be some duplication of information from sub forum to sub forum but please try to remember to keep the other sub forums alive by posting relevant information where it belongs. The Racing club sub forum is primarily for racing related information, club business and news. The IRC VK56 sub forum cannot be a catch all for anything the club members are doing or involved in so please try to remember to utilize the forums as was intended and post items non specific to the racing club in the proper sub forum. By supporting the forums and forum sponsors as a whole, you are in fact supporting the race club.

This brings me to a point that I would like to address up front so that we don't end up in an awkward situation. It relates to product bashing and it will not be tolerated from club members. Some of the other club chiefs and I have discussed this and agree that there is a fine line between stating an opinion and product bashing and will keep an open mind about it. There is a difference between posting honest information about products you own and giving an up front review of something or just spreading rumors and hearsay. If you have personally tried or own a particular product, by all means, let the other forum and racing club members hear about it and this will also help the manufacturers give the VK56 racers what they need to go fast. If on the other hand you just heard something was good or bad, please point the member in the right direction to obtain first hand information. For Example, I own a Nismo CAI and I don't know anyone who has Dyno or track tested it but I read some negative things about it on the various forums that amounts to hearsay. I will say that from my personal testing of this product, it does not seem to be the best but by far is not the worst either. Let's all just try to operate with honesty and integrity because that is what makes a forum and racing club great and something everyone will want to be a part of.

This brings me to another related point and it concerns club member bashing and it will not be tolerated either. Making a joke about something is one thing but an outright attack on someone is another matter. Let's all try to get along and treat each other with dignity and respect. By the way, for the guy who asked what the VK stands for in VK56, that means Very Kool, of course, lol.

Two more rules and we are done with all the major ones. The use of PM spamming to recruit racing club members will get you banned from the club without question. No one wants to receive unsolicited email or PM’s to join a club they may care nothing about. If someone visits our sub forum and inquires about joining, the pit crew is to guide them through the registration process and effectively recruit them into the club but soliciting members outside the Pits is forbidden. We also will not participate in forum favoritism. If someone wants to join another forum or move to one, that’s up to them and they are never to be solicited to do so, this type of activity will also get you banned. I can’t stress these two points enough because it will not be tolerated whatsoever.

Now let's all go have fun, race like it's the last one and I'll see you at the track.

This club sounds sick, and I can't wait to see some vids of everyone's performance.
That said, I know I'm nowhere near racing performance yet, but I'd still like to support and promote the group by buying one of those [email protected] stickers you recently posted!
Hope I'm not overstepping my boundaries or anything by the inquiry, just looking for some answers!
