I just noticed that HardForums has an "open weekend" meaning you can browse GenMay and some of those other paid forums. I decided to see what they were talking about in their Cars/Motor Vehicles board and found this thread. Post #36 and #38 mentions AnandTech.

Have to be logged in, I don't have an account.

Thanks, jlee. I guess you have to be logged in. Normally you have to pay for GenMay access over there at $5/year but this is a free weekend for normal members.

Basically the thread was about The Forum Wars where reps from two forums race their cars against each other.

On a track or in a straight line?

The Forum Wars was awesome. Saw it here in Houston. MSF was awesome. FYHN!

edit: I donate to MSF too for the same reasons as anyone, great information, awesome vendors, etc...
there are no ads and it's entirely community supported

people pay for online forums?

I donate yearly to the Corvette forum. There is so much knowledge on the site that I felt it was worth doing. I have not seen another single make forum with so much information, vendors and contributers.

Best out of 3.

1) 1/4 mile drag.
2) Autocross track, best of X number of laps (2? 3? unclear but at least 2).
3) Slalom.

this was for the msf vs 8thgen:
1/4 was 2 runs
auto-x was 5 laps
slalom was 3 runs

That could be fun. I'd be willing to participate but there are cars on the forum much faster than mine. Some that we probably don't even know about.

Yeah - it'd be fun, but I'd get destroyed. :p

Cars only or are bikes allowed? :D

I wouldn't want to run a bike in autox against any car built for autox. :p

Actually I haven't seen an autox course that allowed motorcycles.
