Why does every noob get an attitude when you tell them to search for their answer before wasting their time postin it here? It just makes sense to buy and read a repair manual for a vehicle if you plan on fixing it yourself, search previous posts, or research the web, right? Somebody just asked where the ECU was located, and I replied. In my reply I told him to buy a repair manual before asking stupid questions, and then I TOLD HIM WHERE IT WAS! I did this because I remember what it was like being a noob, and because I didn't feel like making him wait until he could get one. I felt like I had not only helped him out by telling him where it was, but by allowing him to learn himself. Sorry about the rant, but it just pissed me off (but like I always say, It's better to be pissed off than to bo pissed on.)

Your attitude sucks too. It wasn't a stupid question. Why not just answer the damned question and suggest the purchase of a manual instead of going into drama queen mode...

baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah yes... this is a very good point freewill..i dont think i can really be considered a noob anymore.. none of the vets seem to understand the whole "community" deal..its alot easier to give easy responses and be kind to eachother than be total pricks...im usually a dick on here because i got tired of getting run over by the vets..i actually like some of them though..

Plus I know that many things have been discussed over the years and its all still here. I use the search function alot but also ask questions that may have been answered for two reasons not all the same people answer so you might get a different opinion or someone might have changed there view and second if not then we would have nothing to talk about

oh thank god lol i thought 1sik z was you man!!..that was scary i was thinking a info-less z fan had a super fast zed...yikes

300zx1985 makes a good point...this is what i was confused about for long time...mind you..this is the only place where my altima was put down lol, but its totally understandable...no whining from me..its just evident of how bullheaded some z owners are, and some of us get grumpy at dumb questions and new guys owning cars they cant handle...

but the vets gotta understand they were noobs at one point..and it sucks being criticized..its so much easier to be generous and kind to people...but of course in every forum theres always someone to have beef with one another and sides/favorites get picked and someone ends up getting rediculed for stupid ****.....ive been on that side of the fence before lol :p

Sites to visit...

When I was a noob (if I'm not still considered one) I may have asked some seemingly silly questions & if I got a harsh reply it just made me more determined to learn about my car.
I had never seen another Z31 when I brought mine, knew absolutely nothing about them, but now I have (probably) the nicest one in the UK.
I could never have done half the things I have done to it without the help of the 'vets'.

My advise to anyone learning about the Z31 would be to study these sites:

<http://www.zcar.com/forums/list.php?f=2>

<http://www.z31.com/>

<http://www.az-zbum.com/>

<http://forums.hybridz.org/forumdisplay.php?f=89>

<http://tboz.no-ip.com:10000/>

<http://www.redz31.com/index.html>

<http://www.thumper300zx.com/>

<http://www.nomercz.com/>

(please reply with more if I left any out)


I've got to say a massive thanks to everyone that built these sites,
& I'm not trying to kiss ass, I'm just talking sense.

wow...im sure he was really wasting your time...in all actuality your responses are...at times....a waist of time...to yourself and others...saying that he should by a manual and do a search...=waist of time...all vets have this to say...now instead of you adding your flaming and directing them to a search...try assisting the person in something that hasnt been said...
