Not everyone is going to agree with each other. Sometimes you just have to agree to disagree. That is a shame that it had to come to this.

True. It is a shame. I think that Jason needs to understand that when a person disagrees with him, it'* not a personal attack. That'* the bottom line. No need to pack the bags and go home over something like this.

Jason don't leave man, you have well over 7,000 post here on BC. You are one of the Guru'* here, you have taught us all A LOT of stuff about our cars. After all of the time you have spent here, it all comes down to one little disagreement? One little disagreement shouldn't be enough for you to pack your bags and leave. Just give it some time and all of this "drama" will calm down. If you leave, you are just letting whoever disagreed with you get the better part of you. It will be the same thing where-ever you go, somebody is bound to disagree with you. What kind of message do you think you will be sending to the rest of the club if you leave? People are made of more than that Jason, don't leave. Sometimes you just have to stand up, head high, and take whatever is thrown in your direction. Jason, don't leave.

Rather than discussing this, and actually trying to prove the claim, Jason has decided to leave.

We had quite a lengthy conversation regarding this topic, and Jason decided that anyone disagreeing with him was attacking him personally.

We're sharing this information simply because Jason has opened the door. He'* obviously attacking other members offline from the content of the replies here, so I feel it'* best to have the other side of the story.
Try again. I'll be around, but not nearly as much. There have been some issues with me from time to time with people, some get cleared up asap, some don't. I think people need a break from each other. I'm not attacking anyone offline, or even asking them to look at anything. I've never initiated any conversations today but with you Will. They've all "walked in the door" on their own legs so to speak.

I did try to prove some points and those facts i used still threw up a few BS flags. Some people are not going to change their mind no matter what is shown to them, until they see my tail lights.

Jim you're absolutely right, it is just a car. It'* a purple grandma car. Sure it'* fun and i enjoy myself but i don't care if people don't believe what it does or doesn't do. Because what does that matter? We all know whomever has the most money has the fastest car. The only caveat to this whole thing is knowing how to drive your car, and it'* strengths and weaknesses. We've been told not to wave a BS flag unless we have evidence here. That hasn't applied to all of us. I'm all for questioning, but if facts are stated, wtf man.

I gotta work..

Like everyone has said,it shouldn't have to come to this.........

Not everyone will agree with everyone all of the time,so just take the good with the bad.
I have guys at work all the time that want to race me just because my Bonnie is */C
and i always tell them "I got nothing to prove, I know it'* fast!!!!"



!!!! If you are happy with your Bonnie that is all that should be ALL that matters !!!!

It'* not because someone disagreed! I just need more time away. Holy crap are you still not listening to me? Disagreement brings on new ideas, and proves what'* what. Sure i was unhappy with the way people handled ****, especially when i had facts to prove them wrong. I just think i need to limit myself, for my benefit. I need more time in my life between a minimum of 20 hours a week on campus, 30 hours of work, homework etc.

In short... It'* not that complicated, and i'm not doing this because someone disagreed with me. I don't know how else to say this.

I'm not going to get into my car is better then (user)'* car. I was just saying where i believe my car to be compared to some stock vehicles avg.

I'm very confused. You painted a very different picture to me this morning on YM. In fact, you made it quite clear that you were stepping away for the most part because of this disagreement.

jr's3800 got the exact same impression. Where did we misunderstand?

It goes both ways! Just because it is on the internet doesn't mean that are fact. I think real world result are much stronger!

Sorry to see it end like this over something so stupid, But I guess you would rather have someone lie right to your face then tell you the truth.
