Nope, totally the norm. Basically for me anyway. Not a day goes by that I don't have this process all relating go karts:
Dream about performance mods.
Look it up on the internet.
Check DIYGK.
Talk someones ears off about my kart.
Then try to explain to them and remove their glazed over eyes look.

Also I can do a total 'geek out' when I see a classic car or really any truly cool car.

Other person:

We wouldn't stay in the room very long before we start doing donuts outside...
And someone would have to pressure wash the floor afterwards to get the indoor burnout marks off.

I talk all day about everything except club business :-)

today I ranged from rain/wet roads/ me running late to work and forming "Dynakhana"- a derivative of Gymkhana LOL, then on to corporate lies and politics, mesh routers and my fancy made up ISP "AirFiber", some talk about welding the gabions I made for my dad and how I stirred up an explosion of interest on several local FB pages/groups

Itsid is as active as ever. Firemanjim hasn't posted in a long time. Forum members come and go. Depends on what place in their lives they are in *shrug*
