      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Jeff Gordon seemed a little too happy go lucky when they interviewed him after the race. Where is his passion? Maybe hes too rich to care anymore...hes got more things to worry about (like 50 jeff gordon product lines) than winning races.

If I had a supermodel wife and loads of cash, I couldn't wait to get home either!

The G-W-C was the most exciting part of the race. You know what they say....leave them sitting at the edge of their seats so they remember to come back next time. I'm sure NASCAR has that figured out too.

The finish really isn't at lap 160 anymore, it's three laps prior because it's almost a given that there will be a wreck during the G-W-C and the leader at lap 157 is probably going to be the winner anyway. I'd rather see them race back to the finish line at these restrictor plate tracks, IMO.

I cannot believe how they can keep those COT's from wrecking compared to the previous cars. I suppose it's like racing garbage trucks where they just bounce off each other with these boxy cars. smile

The Talladega race was the best race of the year though and hope it's just as good this fall. There was a lot of passing and action the entire time. Daytona has lost some of it's spark.

You guys like those clowns on FOX! Ick.

I really long for the Bob Jenkins and Ned Jarret types of race broadcasting. I do like Mike Joy, but those other two gigglers drive me nuts. Bill Weber may be the worst broadcaster motorsports has ever known.

I have reached the point where I cannot bear to watch much of these broadcasts. However, I really like listening to these events on MRN radio affiliates. I know, it kind of defeats the purpose (kind of like listening to golf?), but I rarely feel underinformed about the race.

No question.

I hear what you're saying about DW and Larry Mac, but it's the lesser of two evils when you put them up against Weber and Petty, along with the others on TNT's crew.....except Lindsay of course. grinblush

Since we are raggin on TNT, what do you guys think about their chinsy body lift off on their display car. Just hook a couple cables up and pull it off one j e r k at a time. I am almost embarassed to watch when they operate that thing. For all the money they are spending, why not do something cool?

Speaking of Weber, how about his comment during the race: "The good news, we haven't had the 'big one'. The bad news, we haven't had the 'big one'." So what is that supposed to mean? TNT is that desperate for ratings that they are hoping for the pile up? geesh. Talk about blood-thirsty.

I also liked Carl Edwards' comment about the Busch brothers not liking each other very much and he figured Kurt would help push him to the win. LOL. Even The Rat's own brother can't stand him. grin

I heard that too, although I thought that I had misunderstood his statement. What a moron for saying that.

    • Rigid hitch and reflectors on the back of the house and you should be good to go.
    • It wouldn't be any different than pulling a cat cutter or something similar...
    • I have heard as far on trailers every year the lugs should be removed and greased with some sort of oil or anti seize to prevent rust or seizeing of lugs. This could be the issue or there just torqued on good.
    • Hey guys, I have many small lakes within a few miles of home and I’m right on the groomed trail and was always curious if it’s leagal to tow my flip over/ large otter sled behind my snowmobile on the trails to the lakes. I’ve looked around and can’t find an awsner I could have swore years ago it was ok as long as it was towed wth some sort of a solid tow hitch which I have on both. Do does anyone know it this is legal or not planning on trying out a small lake this weekend and would rather ride there then drive.
    • Might want to have a talk with that tire shop, and have them properly reinstall all the other lug nuts before you have to. Plus, if any break they can fix them now. If any brake pulsation occurred after overtightening, that's one more thing to talk about. I also worry about stress factors on the studs. Once a bolt is stretched, it's done. About the only way to check for that is to get an OE stud and compare lengths. Cheater bar force likely means they were at least 3-4 times overtightened, maybe more. But, if you have uncapped nuts on an uncapped wheel allowing corrosion, it's on you.   Torque sticks are better than nothing but really should only be used to snug them down, then finish with a torque wrench.
    •   They should use a Torque stick when putting them on, but none do. Does she have the craapy lugs with the "Tin foil" cap over the nut? I love how those round off. I replaced all the Tin foil lug nuts on my SUV and snowmobile trailer with solid SS lug nuts. They cost more but, I hope to not be sitting half in half out of a snow cover ditch in the middle of no where trying to get striped lugs off!
    • Aluminum or steel wheel?
    • Nice of the Blues to go 4-5-1 in their last ten, they only have 1 point on us but we have two games in game. 
    • It's a red shrimp. Found one in St. Louis river. International shipping hauls this dump over here and then they harass the citizens about spreading it and cleaning it up.
