Opinion needed;

Jan just told us (mods) that splitting threads after x number of posts isn't necessary anymore due to recent server upgrades.

Do you think we should continue splitting threads, or merge the old ones back together?

We stopped doing that long ago - for me it's better because you have all the info in one place.

Merge them back.
Splite them only, if they exceed 5000 or 10000 messages (like autohof threads), for the sake of simplicity.

Yeah, let's merge them. We would get to our fifth RRA soon, so it's probably better to keep all spamming in one thread

I'm also for merging, that way you keep info in one place, you don't have tens of new threads (easier to search for a thread) and all these numbers look ugly anyway.

I'm lower on money than I thought (just had a pretty expensive maintenance on my car), so I think I'm gonna stick to the Ruhr Area. Maybe some other time to CZ.

Just fueled up, consumed:

1:20,5
4,87 liter / 100km
48 miles per gallon

Now that's what I like 480 kilometers for just 21 euros.

It's basically a 2-seater personal car, with a huge trunk. It's a bit more noisy, but I put a blanket on the floor so the noise doesn't reflect much. I also fashioned some stuff against the roof to reduce the noise even further. My car also has the usual stuff like ABS and Airconditioning. The only thing I don't really like is that you have to get in the 3000+ RPM to really speed ahead. But that's what makes the car so fuel efficient. I usually shift at 2000 - 2200 RPM, which is good enough for most traffic situations (except when entering a freeway ramp).

Did you tried a 'full throttle style' ? Changing gears at 5000-6000 rpm ?

I helped out one of Verso's countrymen today There was a Slovenian trucker near the McDonalds asking for directions. He spoke good German, and so did I, so we figured out where he had to be.
