I have to bite my tongue, it's not worth getting involved.

I must say though, the thing that sums it up for me was when poor Tim who broke his Gearbox on his first run was just left stranded in the return lane. I saw him run and get a box full of neutrals as he went for 3rd(input shaft broke), I then went and got in the que to run and as I hit the return run there he was, some 45 minutes at least after he had broke down.

I could pass without offering to help and after he got the splitter off I towed him down to the back of the GTROC stand where he gathered his gear together and then I towed him off site so that the RAC could come and pick him up.

I'm quite sure that if it had been one of us guys, we would all be concerned and offer support, Ok so I had a towrope, but when we stopped for him to get his gear the other chaps on the GTROC hardly raised an eyebrow.

All a bit sad i think.

No, No, Tracy was quite amused at it

She had her own agenda for the day-to find the "saddest" spoiler, and I'm glad to say the winner was that red NSX with the picnic bench styli rear wing.

She was a bit dissapointed that an Evo didn't win this vote as she "Fcuk"ing hates em(They're corsas for Money men)

Guess i'm a bit of a strange creature being a member of the GTROC and a GTS owner! I'm defo not into the bitching that goes on and often think of something to post but in the end think "bollox to it, it's too much hassle". Let them get on with it. To a lot of them there is only one Skyline and that's one that's got GTR on it.

I don't mind people bigging-up themselves like Andy does; and I like the amount of detail he goes into explaining what he's been up to but don't like (and don't see the need) in slagging other people off or putting down thier acheivements. There's enough people out there knocking us without us helping them.

Must admit I don't go on there as often as I used to but there is a hell of a lot of good information, and everyone i've met in person have been top people (as you all have here too).

I think the keyboard has a lot to answer for.

Sorry to appear rude........

But I think alot of GTS owners have a chip on their shoulder about GTR owners, and hype up any insignificant wordage that they feel shows arrogance. I have never said "Your opinion doesnt count, cos you only drive a gts" and I cant remember having read it on GTR either.

I do read alot of gts owners playing the sympathy card and trying to make out that they are the poor relation and shabbily treated, but its mainly a load of old bollox.

Yes, a few gtr owners are totally focused on that one car (I guess I could be included in that bracket, as I had never really known much other than GTR's even though I have been into them for years, and have never wanted a gts - but thats a personal choice) and often dont mention or respond much to gts topics. But maybe that is their choice. I dont respond to all gtr topics, but does that make me a gtr-phobe, of course not.

All I can say is lighten up about the model differences, and just enjoy the choice that each one of us has made. As for all the sh1t throwing and back stabbing then there are only a few to blame, and personally I am getting sick of them ruining it for the rest of us.

Just my 2p's worth.

I am, and probably will continue to be, a member of both forums.....but hey that's just my choice.
As far as I'm concerned, this place is a much friendlier place to be for the majority of the time, hence why I'm here so much. I have no doubt it'll stay that way. But I do still frequent the 'other' side as, despite outward appearances, the majority are decent chaps and chapesses.

Same old story as I see it..... the minority (arrogant, arguementative fcukwits, especially when sat behind a computer) :argue: spoiling it for the majority ie. those of us who enjoy being a part of the skyline world whether that's through ownership of the car or as an enthusiast. :(

Anyway, thats way too much serious jibbering from me so I'll shut up now.

I'll leave you with this parting comment though....... My car IS faster and better than all of yours. I know that 'cos my mummy told me so nnnnerrrrr :D :D
