    Default When am I not a new owner?

    So I have had my car for about 6 months. I got the new tires. Learned how to drive it and have a good time and not wrap it around a tree. So when am I not a new owner? 1 year, 10 years?

    Have you changed your oil yet? How many miles have you put on your snake? J/k IMO about a year Good question though as some here have been around for 10, 15 and 20 years.

    I have changed my oil. Thats one huge oil pan. I put on 2500 miles over the summer and fall. Took it to the track once. I drive it fairly hard and did some skid pratice in the Target parking lot.

    Im prety much used to the power and drive it like I ride my 1000cc sport bike. No hammering the throttle in turns and all the other dont do rules. Its a fun ride.

    I think noob status fades when it's out only on the weekends.

    Once you have ridden in a Viper Pace Car you are a made-man.

    [And all that other track stuff you did, qualifies too!]

    PS you supported our local Kids Hospital event, and you went to at least TWO Club meetings in 2011..............you are No Longer a Newbee!

    I have ridden in one sweet pace car. I went to 3 meetings I think last year. And I usually only drive it to work 3 miles and have it out on the weekends when the weather is good. Its not a garage queen. The children’s hospital event was great. Not being a Noob is great.

    soon as you "think" you know what you are doing in a viper is the most dangerous time. be careful

    I think you've lost your noob status once you do your 1st mod or once you've used one of the forum how-to's or get over 100 posts, or get your 1st warning from the mods on here.....have you hit any those milestones yet?

    Regards,

    Im not sure I will be doing any mods. I did that with my last car. Methanol, new turbo, exhaust etc. I had fun doing it. The idea of this car is that its over the top to start with. I think It dosent need much but a new stereo. How do I get a warning from the mods?

    Dear Brantdw,

    You could post a pic in the Chicks/Vipers thread showing a nipple....thats a no no! You could verbally attack another member in a pre-arranged "fued" or I've heard that if you post an ebay link to something your selling personally you'll get a warning.

    I'm sure someone else can comment on how to get a warning from the mods.

    Regards,
    Aaron
