    some pro drivers have too much free time attacking people on internet especially when Manly doesn't give them space to talk smack!

    Yeah, let's all chill out, its Thanksgiving holidays!

    Time could be better spent improving our automotive and motorsport knowledge instead of attacking each other!

    There are certain things that should be saved for the track, and certain ways to act on track. That is pretty much all that needs to be said.

    Now go enjoy your cars
    Do you understand?

    Friends are allowed to poke fun at friends, aren't they?

    I think we all agree that the video is hilarious, no?

    I think if you guys really think we are a big family, at least someone should post some positive things about Jaku on the threads in the other forums that billy started. I dun think BJ should have spread it to many other forums, and I dont think Jaku deserved all that badmouthing. People in other forums dont know whats going on here and will only bash at Jaku based on BJ's descriptions. So I think we should be fair, I tried to defend Jaku but I dun think its of any help. So I quit.

    I dont know what to think of this Jaku guy. I didnt know about the following videos until stuntman posted them. I cant really think of anything positive to say about someone who posts videos like this, let alone participates in anything like this:

    there is a whole culture of it. I don't go canyon racing, but it is not for me or you to judge. Those youtube video had nothing to do with the Mustang video.

    if some of you seen the original thread with Mustang video. you would know Jaku post it in humor. everybody just had fun with it. so take a chill pill. stop judging. A couple of months ago, a few were very critical of Rob's offs (when he posted in humor). This is same thing all over only worse.

    you posted something on the internet, and expect it not to get around? Have you been locked in a cave for the last 10 years.

    Just like you made fun of the Mustang driver, now people are making fun of you. Its messageboard wars, learn to live with it or don't post stuff for the world to see.

    your only previous posts here are for sale items. you expected to be taken seriously ?

    Jaku posted the Mustang video here in humor. We all took shot at it. it is inappropriate for another Trackhq regular to take a thread here and started postings in different forums (more than 1) for the purpose of humiliation. Plus finding his Youtube video and linked it to an unrelated topic. how do you like it if someone googled your name and use it in an attack.

    Thats how I look at it. I dont care if Lewis Hamilton got his drivers license suspended in France for speeding, he is well respected on the track, and showed high level of sportsmanship and skills, and I only care about that, as long as he doesnt brag about his speeding in any inappropriate place.

    Jaku did the same, he provided trackhq a LOT of precious information regarding setup and parts upgrades, as well as data logging. He never bragged about his victory in the canyon here, because he knows that people on this forum only care about how to improve driving at the track, so Jaku has indeed played by the rules and he has made his contributions to us, IMO one of the most valuable contributors in data analysis on this forum.

    Therefore, I would never accept someone to pick on a person's other perspective of life to stir more things up, for the sake of "winning others' vote" in other forums. That, IMO, is a very inappropriate behavior!

    Thats why i said i dont know what to think of this Jaku guy. I still dont know what to think. He is clearly a motorsports enthusiast, like the rest of us. So i was more than mystified when i saw those videos of his on youtube.

    There's a culture to it as William said and many ppl do take it very seriously, they have teams in different areas, even back home in HongKong, its just not so popular in the US. Basically u can think of NASCAR originated from drag race; then road course racing would be originated from racing on twisties. And US is not a big fan of road course racing, not even now.

    P.S. these are FACTS, so please do not challenge me, I dont take sides whether its right or not, its the same as riding motorcycle in canyon road and doing stunts on parking lots, but ppl here just accept that more.
