I need technical advice! - July 18, 2007, 01:22 AM

I've talked to many friends and experts on the subject. Everyone has one, but I get different answers from everyone I ask! It's very confusing to know who's giving me the best info. I'm new to this, but I don't have the money to learn by trial and error. I need to make a choice that will work for street and track, but I can't afford to just go out and buy the best. So, I'm asking for advice to help me choose a favorite color.

I've been partial to blue for a long time, but I'm older now and I feel like I'm not maximizing my potential. I also like red, but am I missing something to stick with the primary colors? I'm not bored with blue, and I'm not in a gang, but I wonder what colors might be better. Are there any resources for someone like me to find a favorite color? Do you have any suggestions? (please support your choice with anecdotal stories that have no relevant basis). Should I find a color online? Or, should I pay more and go to a dealer? Do I need a spare favorite color? How do I find a sponsor to help pay for my favorite color? Is green really gay? Are there books I should read about it? Anyone do this kind of work on the side?

I like RED - it's just a great color that has worked for me. I tried other colors (blue, green, even black), but red has really worked the best for me. You should trust me on this, since I have like 36 years worth of expertise in picking colors.

Who stays up until 2am thinking about colors? That's just gay, therefore, pink should be your favorite color.

Personally, black, with black on black highlights, and when something lights up, it lights up in black, with black text, on a black background.

Infrablack one would say

HEY GET OUT OF MY HEAD! I was going to say clear...


Johnny, let me know how this works out for you. If you need further help my 2 year old Godson has just perfected picking out colors, he may be of help to you. He has a busy schedule stomping on bugs, running game on pigtailed bishes, taking juice to the head and taking naps so getting up with him may be tricky but he could be a resourceful help to your plight.
