I read the thread from last year was upset I missed it sounds like great fun
PS I heard MiniTorque is quite a savage forum are they like that in real life or are they pretty civil when they are not hidden behind the computer
Spot on Jack. Keyboard warriers. Very savage indeed. Especially if you post a question they think is beneath their contempt. Many are extremely knowledgeable however. They use all sorts of acronyms and slang which if you aren't familiar with is dangerous. The syndrome we seem generally to be suffering from all over - the ease with which one can be rude and evil on social media.
But I've met many of them at various meets and at Brands track days and you are correct. Face to face they are fine.
