Arrow ATTN Any / All Mechanics

Simple question....

Most of us here have mechanical knowledge etc, and also know mechanics around the place.

Who thinks there will be an advantage having an austalian mechanical forum, where everybody can post questions and answers on problems and solutions to any mechanical problem and fuel injection side of cars. Its just an idea i have thought up, but if yous all think it will be of benifit, then i will be willing to set us something up...

Isn't that what either this or the new Ford-Tech section is all about ?
www.ford-tech.com

Or are you meaning general mechanical info across all makes ?

This is what the Garage is all about now.

Mind you, it seems to be dominated by exhaust and engine mods, rather than simple mechanical problems, but it is all interesting reading. (Apart from the perennial question "What sort of exhaust are you guys using on your xxx"). I would like a quid for each one of those.

I was thinking more across all makes and models, not just fords.

It would probably be more of an online database of problems and solutions for the different makes / models etc.

It would cover all aspects of the vehicles, including advanced EFI techniques etc...

Prolly a good idea then . . .

Would have thought it would have widespread appeal, although de-bunking submissions could prove really tricky.

And of course you'd want disclaimers up down and sidewards :)

With my limited ( i.e. none ) research, I don't think there are any competitors in this area, so you could find yourself on a real winner if you did it for profit and targeted mechanics as well as the general public . . .

We'd just have to make sure there were lots of performance "enhancing" tips for holdens on the site:

Yeah, that's probably a good idea, you wan't a site that the mechanically challenged can visit and ask basic questions, and for all models of cars. Go for it.

There is one in Yankeeland called Jonko.com, have a look at them for a bit of inspiration.

A beginner's area, as well as an advanced area, drag racing, curcuit racing, whatever would be a good idea

Posting some details of honest mechanics who know their stuff & don't screw people would also be a help.
