Interesting...

I didn't know that I could have sub-forums at this level. Wow, you learn something new everyday.

How about an engine rebuilding forum here...

is it user-configurable? I would be cool to have the user setup whatever sub forums they'd like for quick access

Maybe subsections, such as SC, Carrera, RGroupe, 993, and of course the SCWDP! Although some already have their own forum, I think they would get more use if accessed from one general 911 forum.

That way you could search an entire board based on car model. Breaking down to wash and wax, or types of air fresheners is too narrow. IMHO.

I like the 911 tech forum just the way it is. Just scroll past anything that doesn't interest you.

Wayne, I think you need a separate 911 turbo forum. You have a separate 944 turbo(951) forum. Just a suggestion. Lets do a poll?

I'd vote for sub-categories...would make finding areas of interesting a little easier.

What About...

SUB Forums such as..

911 Engine and Trans Forum
911 Suspension Forum
911 Electrical Forum
911 Fuel systems and Exhaust Forum
911 Body and Interior Forum

and this could be done to all P-cars..
Just a thought.

Better have monitoring systems in place before giving those SCWDP'ers their own sub-section. You never know what plots they'll be cooking up...

The board is great the way it is, but I second the motion for a 911 turbo sub-forum.

I'm with pwd72 and Don on this... you never know what interesting tidbit is buried in a thread.. and I don't have the time to run through two or three more....

The engine rebuild forum is very tempting, though!

I disagree

I think the problem with the Rennlist is that there are too many sub-catagorys. Leave the PP 911 board alone.
Just my opinion

Thanks for your effort Wayne

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO....don't start this sub-grouping thing again. I think the case has been made often enough that most people like it the way it is.

Checking all the posts often reveals some very interesting info that would be missed if you just looked at some sub groups.

I think the sub-sections are good as long as they remain accessable from the 911 forum like they are at the moment.
I think a section on electrics would be beneficial to a lot of the guys here, not least myself!
