per RC45
Well - do we have any parting gifts from the outgoing mod for the incoming?

yes Bob - we do in fact have some parting gifts... think of them as "I told you so" ammunition



and



Exactly what is it Mr Narrator..??

Well Bob, they are simple to read print articles that show certain vehicles dancing toe-to-toe within 10th of second of each other on the same day in the same conditions.

Ah - you mean a sort of "So everything he said in the last 3 years is true" parting shot?

Exactly Bob - and an example of material the incoming mod can use to quash idiots...

Excellent.

What about this new section that just magically appeared, for such topics?

New topics posting is just allowed for mods or admis, to avoid needed less, I hope nth agrees on this method and if ppl want to provide stuff they can always PM that to him, he will post credits if needed, I am sure
