information site found
Just stumbled onto a site that has much good info on ls1, lt1 and general stuff.
For those who are fussing about it not being a sponsor link I have made the link directly to the technical aids and have bypassed the selling part of the site. That should make everyone happy.
Of particular interest to me are the 4th gen camaro & firebird parts books available for free download.

Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

If you go down the page near the bottom you will see the links posted there. The one technical aids is where the good info is. I don't give a hoot and a holler about the guys metal polishing. And that brings me to the point of saying that every other forum I've seen will let members post links to where ever they like. Your policy boarders on encroachment of free speech, and makes me wonder if you are putting the needs of the members first, or revenues collected from sponsors first. And lets be honest, anyone who ponies up the dough will be on a sites sponsor list, quality and good service have nothing to do with it. To give an example Cannon is the official camera of Nasscar. Not because they make any better of a camera, but because they were willing to spend more money then the other camera companies.

I have been on other forum type sites that have the same policy. Freedom of speech is a generic right in our country. You can stand out on the streets and yell off non-sponsor URLs all day long...
But there is plenty of precedent for allowing/entering a contractual agreement that binds/limits what you can do or say. And since this site has its rules clearly posted, and by joining this site you are agreeing to abide by their given rules, then they can and will enforce them. Nothing abnormal about that in our society or business world...

Just to name one I use on the outside, GM Parts Direct is the ONLY company that carries original parts for my TDC project.. Without them I would'nt have a build....

What we try to do here is give some exclusivity to the paying sponsors. If a link competes against those guys we remove the link but as long as there's not a direct link to the site we try to leave good info up. Since we don't have any metal polishing sponsors I'll leave your link up but it's not because I respect your free speech rights....it's because it doesn't conflict with a sponsor and some members might gain some knowledge there.
