There are a lot of Camaro enthusiasts getting turned on to Camaro5. It has a very knowledgeable membership.

Yes, the new folks may or may not know about the search feature.................which they will be reminded of...................in every case.

But we must be patient and not dampen anyones enthusiasm for the Camaro. Just politely remind them that the topic was covered 312 times over the past year and if they simpley use the search feature they will be instantly rewarded with access to all of the knowledge and brain power associated with this website.

Brakes are black?

Exactly - grin and bear it! We want to be the largest and most extensive site on the net regarding anything and everything 5thgen and in order to do that, you have to be willing to help out folks who may be new to GM, young or technologically challenged.

Many senior members on the site are tired of answering the same question over and over again and that's fine but let's try and be as welcome as possible for the sake of the site and for the sake of the Camaros success.

Now what's this about black brake calipers?

Noob to the site, not the LSX community. Maybe the mods could make more stickies for Camaro Faqs?

I disagree though...there are dumb questions.

We will always have to deal with this. As long as Camaro5 is one of the top sites for 5th gen stuff then we'll continue to get folk who want a quick an easy answer. So let just point them in the right direction and see if they can fend for themselves. Everyone gets the first request free.

It's always the same people too. I think the mods should step in and shoot PMs to these people and tell them to RTFM. One dude had 25 posts per day and has only been here for like a month. He had started like 5 threads in two days. And was combative when I suggested he look around before starting more threads.

We definitely want to know who those people are. If it is as you say please take the time to PM one of us so we can educate them.

Seriously,

The Wiki page in my sig has everything you need to know aboutthe Camaro.

There's also a sticky on the v8 and v6 forumswith all the performance mods.

It hasn't been updated in about 2 weeks, but I've been busy with school. It will be updated as soon as I get some free time
