This is a great idea. A topic where novices can find all the basics with out having to read through all the extended scientific and physics debates. I tried to start a thread liike this on Derby Talk, but only got a limited response. So, come on pineheads, pitch in and post your ideas that will benefit the novice racers.
I was just looking at the stats on "Derby Talk". The thread I started "Speed Tips" which I referred to above is the 5th most viewed topic on the board. If you want to build this board and attract new members this is the topic category that will do it. If you been watching the stats since this topic has been moving, membership is increasing and views are higher than any of the other topics. Ther are many other tips than can be posted here, so come on and pitch in. This is the season for the Derby!
