1. Purpose of this forum: the Suspension Truth Forum is intended for several purposes:

First, as a place for Fat Cat Motorsports, Inc. to publicly share some topics on research and development, observations, customer reviews / testimonials, new product information and engage in lively yet polite discussion about these topics.

Second, as a place for private (registered-user only) conversations / Q&A regarding practical and theoretical discussions about suspension theory, design, and practice for all types of vehicle uses, from street to track to off-road.

Third, as a location for past, current, or future FCM Elite customers to share their experiences / ideas and engage with other FCM Elite users to share knowledge and give / receive assistance on modifying their vehicle suspension(s).

NOTE: some forums will be public, and others private / member-only - specifics to be determined. Purchase of a previous or new FCM Elite suspension qualifies you for private / member-only access to areas not publicly viewable.

2. Conversation Quality: we intend our discussions here to have a high "signal-to-noise" level. That means informative, engaging and thought-provoking conversations are the rule, not the exception. If a topic is unrelated to suspension design/theory/application, or 'trolling' (deliberately provocatory) it will be deleted and the user sanctioned or banned.

3. Username conventions: to reduce / prevent spammers and spambots, your user name MUST contain your true legal first name. You can add letters/words before or after. For example 'SkilletKidJose'. Only an underscore (_) is allowed as a special characters in the username. For example, 'Teddy_O_Rally'. Also, through far too much time spent cleaning out the user database, we've been able to identify spammers through certain information provided (or omitted). Therefore, to help us separate users from spammers, your profile must contain a fully spelled-out City and State OR Country name.

NOTE: If necessary, an admin will PM or email you to verify your identity and validate your privilege to join this forum. User registration information (including username) that is nonsensical or vulgar will be edited / removed.

4. 'There is no spoon': we encourage exploring wild ideas! Be open-minded and willing to learn from others, as well to share your thoughts. We want healthy AND polite debate to stimulate deeper thought / discussion. Provide links and references when possible so others can follow your thoughts.

5. Duplicate threads will be edited and/or deleted. Adding to an existing thread, even if older, is fine. Search is your friend!

6. This is not the place to ask 'what do you guys think about Product X?' However, discussions of the pros and cons of other products versus an FCM Elite solution are welcome. For example, '2005 Subaru WRX - FCM Elite Stage 2 vs. Brand X - thoughts?'

7. No advertising or links to other forums / vendors / sponsors is allowed in signatures, posts, thread titles, private messages (PM), etc.. You're welcome to indicate your vehicle make, model, and modifications within 300 characters. If you see abuse of advertising or receive promotions via PM / email, let an admin or moderator know (for example, Shaikh Jalal). Violators of this policy will be given a single warning before banning.

8. Usernames, posts, or threads appearing to promote other vendors or products will be edited or removed.

9. Forum membership is a privilege, not a right. Moderators have authority to censor posts and/or users that violate these rules and ban repeat offenders as necessary. Profanity / vulgarity / threats / harassment - whether via public post, private message (PM), or email - will not be tolerated. A single warning will be issued before banning.

10. By registering for and using this forum, you agree to abide by these and any updated rules (changes will be added to this area as they occur). You can remove yourself at any time if you no longer wish to take part in the forum.

11. All information provided in this forum FOR YOUR INFORMATION ONLY and AT YOUR OWN RISK. We accept no legal responsibilities for your application of ideas or principles indicated herein. Consult a local ASE-certified mechanic if you have questions regarding the applicability of a product or idea to your situation.

Essentially, the 'Golden Rule' applies: treat others with respect and you'll receive the same in return. All this said ---

Welcome to the Suspension Truth forum! Enjoy yourself!
