Dear Sid,

If only you knew how hard it is to type on this piece of xxxx, you would truly understand how hard it is and time consuming when every other word laggs and does not show up. My auto correct will not correct any bad spelling because it simply does not feel like doing it.
And "These punks with smart phones" my fone is anything but smart. If only you knew what i did to get the phone i use. And because "y not" ill tell you, My LG Tribute HD came from a hoarders house my family was tasked with cleaning. This guys house had paper to your shins in two rooms and one room had dog doo doo about 3 inches piled on carpet, we removed it and had to carry it. He had his sex toys layed out crap stains all over the seats, and guess why we cleaned it because he had a stroke and nearly died because of it, he layed on the floor for five days before we found him. And i found this phone in its package in a bag full of what smelled like rotten Johnson ville sausages and ****. I am deeply sorry for making your brain hurt because my phone is a piece of crap.

Quite a story!!!!

The advantage of writing legible sentences with punctuation and paragraphs is that people then actually read what you have written. Many people, when they see a wall of text with words that run into each other, just skip to the next thread. I do it, so I know that loads of other people do too.

It also means that you just aren't going to get the help that you need as people are just not looking or are getting too annoyed to even reply.

Sure, some phones are worse than others..
a smaller display makes for smaller keys to be pressed..
autocorrect can mess up as much as it can help at times etc. etc.

All true

BUT the punctuation marks are all in your std Android keyboard layout,
as is the newline key
usually sticking somewhere near the space bar.

And not using them is a dead giveaway for lazyness!

If you're having troubles with your phones keyboard capabilities ..
find a cheap bluetooth keyboard and pair it with your phone
(for less than ten bucks I got myself a full size keyboard for my ipad for example)
Sure you wouldn't want it in your back pocket;
but at home when you're about to write something that's not "160chars or less"...
it does indeed help a LOT!

So no, having a crappy phone does not count as an excuse.
And the LG Tribute isn't even crappy at all..
it may be slower than more recent phones,
but it surely provides a decent interface and keyboard.

I agree with most things you said, and i use the correct formatting but auto correct unformats for me. And i would agree with the lg trubute hd being a pretty good phone with a good ui, but mine is old and worn out yes new from the package but it was submerged in gross slime for months and there is still sticky goo on it also i had to re write this 4 times because its glitching agagin.

Are your engine bolts tight? It looked like that engine was flopping around quite a bit.

You're bolts may have too much spacing between the head and the threads, so the nuts are tight, but there's still play between the engine and the mounting plate, thus allowing your engine to jump around.
Just spitballin'.

Just return it. At this point, it's just not worth the effort to fix it.

I’d return it, I’m sure you could monkey around with it and figure out why it’s running bad, but why bother when a trip to harbor freight guarantees a fix and will take less time.

You may be an hour away from HFT, but what if your crankshaft or something is screwed? Is it really worth it to try to fix it? It's all up to you in the end, but I'd just bite the bullet and return it.
I hope you saved the packaging...

Well!
Then even IF you drove an hour to HFT, you wouldn't be able to return it!
You have to have it in the original packaging with the original receipt to return it!
In that case, you HAVE to try to fix it, since returning it is now out of the question.

Well what I think he is trying to say, and itís quite a clear message. Is he is trying to nicely say lay off a bit. Iíve noticed it and Iím sure others have also, but you are quite rude in a lot of your posts.

I do take into consideration that your a moderator, but mistakes happen, and sometimes technology doesnít work well. He cannot help it, please lay off.

Now I know This is off topic and could get into trouble, but I felt it needs to be said, because after all itís a forum where the goal is to help others, and you seem quite rude much of the time.

Thank you!

Nah.

Go and buy another one, take it out of the box, swap motors, return the old one, done.

Wait, seriously? That sounds a bit dishonest.
And besides Budget GoKart, do you have the receipt for your 212?
BTW, I like your new signature!
