    I'm going to try to do some nice and generous things for the community to show how serious I am. I also right now am working on expanding the entire network. I want to really make a great place for enthusiasts. That's my end goal so talk down on me if you want for that I'm sure people will.
    Although I do feel you deserve some of the heat you get, the members of the forum need to hold themselves accountable too.

    There's a mob mentality on here where once a couple people start ganging up on one person, a bunch of others just join in for the hell of it or once a couple guys start supporting one person everyone becomes a bunch of groupies as if he were Justin Bieber. If anyone posts up something unfamiliar or slightly silly everyone loves to start bashing.

    If you can't discuss and even argue in a mature manner, everything always goes to the $#@!s. A lot of people know how to throw out punches, but are a friggen sensitive ball of estrogen when it's their turn to take a punch. If people could just argue using facts and not personal insults the threads would be a lot more bearable.

    I can happily say that having been part of the Internet community since it's more humbler beginnings, the 'drama' we see nowadays is nothing compared to what used to happen on Usenet in it's heyday; which was just a breeding ground for trolls & flame wars at every thread - even more so than places like M3Chan.

    BB has some really useful information and quality people, with that will come a little bit of heat. Let's suck it up and move on Click here to enlarge Perhaps one day even have a '*BoostFest' and we can all drink beer and be happy.

    I definitely do and I need to work on that. But people forget, this is ultimately something I built and yes I am in charge. So if my decision is this person needs time off because I feel they are ruining what I built that is my decision to make. I didn't say someone needs to be permanently removed but there is necessary behavior modification and I'm sure it's on both sides. I'm willing to address that with any member. We can talk, why not?

    Yes there is a mob mentality and that's why I stick up often for posters getting beaten up on because I can take the heat and have enough rep to do so.

    The take a punch stuff is definitely true but a lot of arguing, I won't name names, has been just throwing out insults and not actual substantial discussion as of late. So, I'm hoping this can be addressed. We're adults, we can handle talking about cars on a forum for $#@!s sake.

    Great first post man and way to not hide behind a pseudonym or anything. You just happened to be passing through again eh? Thanks for your input. Fortunately there are some good members 'buried' somewhere in here too.

But, he's pushing things too far.

    I'm trying to be very reasonable but if you saw the messages I have received you might change your mind and also have to alert local authorities. Once again, I hope for positive and peaceful resolution moving forward.
    Alert local authorities? lolz. Did he threaten to bomb your house?

Shiv had some nice dyno's and was ragged on for not having customer vehicles put out any info and the exact same story is coming out from your end right now especially with these top secret log's etc..

    What I also see coming from your end is a bunch of arrogance and an attitude where you feel you are too good for the n54 community, if you truly feel you are too good and "don't need to do this" why would you waste your time and deal with all the bull$#@! that comes along with it?. You become emotional and behave like a female when people comment, but at the same time try to maintain this arrogant "higher than thou" attitude acting like you can't be bothered to argue.

    Who you are as a person has no relevance to the product you put out and I really do hope it's a kick ass product and if it was I would still by it, but the whole act has become very annoying lately.
    Please please, show me where I have said I do not need to do this. I have said I do it for fun and because I enjoy it. Does any vendor need to do anything. Got to love guys like this. Im pretty sure you were one of the "innovators" of the platform. Except the platform reach a stalemate in HP numbers and you or anyone else stepped up to actually push the boundries. Yes WHP numbers do PROVE something, they prove a lot. They prove what the engine is capable of, they prove what the turbos are capable of, the next step is someone needs to get the drivetrain sorted and put it on the track. There is no magic, a properly sorted suspension / drivetrain with a decent driver and 725 will put you well into the 10's. $#@! even with a $#@!ty driver you should be able to do it. Gotta love all the haters sitting on the side lines typing on a keyboard as we continue to push things forward. Some call it arrogance, I call it confidence in what we are doing. Let me know when you build a car that breaks 550 WHP, or a new 1/4 record. Until then you are just another internet guy complaining.

    Is this bimmerboost or Days of Our Lives?


    Sticky. It's your forum, ban whoever the $#@! you want. You don't need to justify it. However, you swing the banhammer too hard or too frequently and it'll cause more harm than good. It's definitely a blade that cuts both ways.

    As for people who complain about constant bickering. Just remember every F5 is a page view. More Page views = More Ads to Show = More money. Internet Marketing 101.

    Once again you shoot childish shots my way and get all emotional, exactly what I was speaking of. I'm not trying to Q you or your capabilities, I damn right want you to push the platform and to break #'s, I'm an end user looking to buy your product not a competitor.

    You are correct I didn't push the platform and I'm not an innovator because that's not what end users do, they buy the parts that people like yourself put out, but it's funny that you use that as an insult towards me.

    And yeah WHP #'s do prove what the motor is capable of, but it doesn't prove what your product is capable of until it's in the hands of a consumer, it's just the way the internet works. Shiv also put out big dyno #'s to show what the motors capable of, but I'm sure you saw the treatment he got due the fact that no real world customers had anything to show.

    I can say with 99% certainty that eventually you will have a kick ass product out there and there will be dyno's and track times all over, but until that happens the big question mark will remain in place.

    You refer to me as a hater when that was my first negative post towards you and all my previous posts were in your favouur on here and especially at e90p. I have 0 loyalties to anybody and I just say things how they are, if you think that's being a hater because all the cool kids like to use that word when somebody disagrees with them then go ahead.

    At the end you shoot another personal attack at me which I find funny, the 335i is the last priority in my garage; it's my commuter that I use to throw $#@!loads of highway mileage onto since I travel from hospital to hospital across Canada and USA. Ask anybody from Toronto who may know a bit about the vehicles in my stable and then ask me again about 550whp and 1/4 mile records. There's nothing big and bad about cars my friend, your track times go as deep as your pockets. There are guys that built hardware for 800whp sitting in their garage sipping on beers over a weekend, you had the balls to go ahead with the project so hats off to you for that, I respect that, but don't let it get to your head, the hardware is always easy once you man up to the challenge, the software is where things always get sticky.

    You have a good product in the making and you should let the product do the talking, I'm not sure why you start crying over every single post on the forums, it's a losing battle and you should have learned that by now.

    That's not correct. He got in trouble due to his posting and threats not due to any event although I won't be promoting an event for him for free. I also am not sending him money like he demanded.

    Thread was never removed, it was closed, and as I told you when you texted me my car isn't finished so it was just pointless baiting.

They prove what the engine is capable of, they prove what the turbos are capable of, the next step is someone needs to get the drivetrain sorted and put it on the track. There is no magic, a properly sorted suspension / drivetrain with a decent driver and 725 will put you well into the 10's. $#@! even with a $#@!ty driver you should be able to do it. Gotta love all the haters sitting on the side lines typing on a keyboard as we continue to push things forward. Some call it arrogance, I call it confidence in what we are doing. Let me know when you build a car that breaks 550 WHP, or a new 1/4 record. Until then you are just another internet guy complaining.
    i don't know either one of you guys in this little internet dispute but by you being a vendor , and from what i can see having a business , do you think it's wise to actually start talking down to another member ? like i said , i don't know either of you guys but what i do know , from what i'm reading is that you have no idea what Dr. G has in his "stable" . he might have nothing in his "stable" or he might have more stuff than you could ever imagine .

    i don't ever see the point of a vendor getting into a heated discussion with another member . there are plenty of ways to get your point across without talking down to someone else .

    I possibly could help with this exclusive.
