does anyone know of any other forums that exist for mustnags that are more technically oriented? this is an entertaining forum, but there does not seem to be a great deal of actual mechanical conversation going on. for instance, i asked 2 questions about correct offset on wheels and got 1 response, where questions on ebay get 25 and questions about insurance get 50! not to complain, but does anyone know of another forum that deals with "tougher" questions?
thanks in advance!

Welcome: Not to be sarcastic, but if you've gotten 50 replies on insurance, and 25 on wheel spacing, the answer must be there. I do hope that you keep coming back.

Also, if you do a search on 'backspacing' you'll find 20 other threads besides yours to read in the Classic Mustang forum.

There are a total of 41 on the whole site.

More technical ?????!!!
Check out the racing forum.

Seriously, Quinn, these guys and gals can get as technical as you can handle. Everyone has a different level and this site caters to all. Sometimes it depends on how the question is answered as to how technical the response is. If you need a more in depth complex answer then say so and I'm sure that Alex, Steve or some of the other more technically oriented people will step up to answer. I honestly don't think you'll find a better Mustang site. It's got it all from classifieds and racing to full concours restorations. It's all here you just have to look and you'll find it.

Quinn,
Not be offstandish, but when posing question, a lot of responses are based on the question. If you want more details, add more questions on to the current thread or start another thread.
I've checked out lots of other Mustang BB's and have yet to find a better, friendlier, or more knowledgable site than this one. Use the search features and the "Archives". Lots of great info for you.

sometimes quinn i will read an answer to a post and if i agree with what the answer said and cant think of anything to add i usually dont reply to the qeustion. i think alot of the guys here are the same way. as for not being technically oriented, some of the other boards have questions that deal primarily with the location of the correct decal for the trunk jack. how technical is that?? if you want to know what parts to run or how you should build and engine for a particular purpose you will get many answers all similar but enough different that you may start debates going.

I think you found a topic that'll get some response this time Quinn. We'll remember your not happy with just getting your question answered, but that you need additional banter

I was on many other sites before this one.And yes there are some sharp people out there.But this site has not only giving me all the info I need.But it also has much more friendly people on it.Not every post turns into a flame.I was on one other site for sometime.And check back to that site from time to time.Thats enough to keep me here.Yes some of the info sites on here can get alittle lite hearted and maybe thats what you dont like.But you should be able to have and enjoy talking and learning about Mustangs and Fords.
I do think this site offers more info and great people too.You should feel lucky you found this place 1st.I only wish I would have found it sooner.

thanks in advance!

You've posted 6 measily times!! If your question doesn't get answered, bring it back to the top or revise the question. Every single time i've asked a technical question on this forum I have had every single one answered with detail.

Do some research on this forum and you'll see that a big handful of the members are very experienced to answer almost any questions related to the Mustang.

The way you explain your opinion about this forum is totally retarded. Just because a post regarding ebay got 25 responses and a post regarding wheels got 1, you gripe!?!? Did you ever think that the post regarding ebay could have turned into a "chat" type of post resulting in 25+ posts? Umm... well, umm..offset about "your wheels" isn't exactly a "chat" topic. It was a question. If it didn't get answered, big deal. Post it again and revise it.

I hope you take the time an research this site a bit more as it is very informative. If you decide to leave, it's your loss buddy.

Regards,

Erik
