Where is everyone?

First off, thanks to everyone who has answered my questions... hopefully be able to test my new motor in the Front engine dragster on Saturday... but I do have another question to ask...

Where is everyone? This site used to be so busy that if you didnt come on for a day all the threads that were at the top of the list in chilly's garage were now a page or so back...I guess since the whole switch in ownership happened a lot of people have left...

I think there is a bunch of folks (myself included) really short on cash right now. Its hard for some to talk about it if they can be doing it!! I just live through those that can!!

Looking forward to hearing how that slingshot works, good luck!! Be safe.

I stay at 429/460 most of the time,I personally like both because I have friends on both. I'm not one for the politics side of anything.jmo

I think the main reason the garage isn't as busy as it used to be is because of all the added sections. Alot of stuff that used to be discussed here is elsewhere. Personally I liked it the way it was. You could go to a couple sections and see everything,now you have to jump allover the place. I don't come here as much as before for that reason.

X 1000, I hang out way less since all the changes. You can say what you will but since its happened a lot of the hitters have left and the place is not near what it used to be............lost its luster.

I'll second that. I hop on here 2-3 times a week now but don't post as much as I used to. Usually hop on Tues adn Sat before the chat. Don't care for the new style the new ownership has done. I also dislike the politics and childish antics, which is why I refuse to go to any of the other sites. I'll stay here and go down with the ship.

I just click on "new posts" or "todays posts" depending on whether I'm logged in or not. Clicking on each section got to be a drag. I go to both sites
