No Full Name on Application, No Account. Simple. If that's Too Complicated for you, you're in the wrong place.

I suppose that I could just activate everyone who signs up, but I have my requirements for membership and don't want to change them. If a person can't read the front page and put their full name on their sign up, then I really don't want to be bothered giving them access. I could have 5000 members, most of whom wouldn't pay their dues, would act like assholes and ponder the merits of Ford vs. Chevy, Propeller driven land speed cars and why they run Nitro in their Street Nova. Then I could be every other site on the internet.

This is the Oldest internet site for high performance in existence. HRE.COM Predates every single hot rod, drag, high performance, Racing Association, Speed Parts manufacturer or Racing group. That and a couple of dollars will get you a cup of Starbucks. I don't care. I started this place to HELP people get a handle on alcohol and nitro setups so that they wouldn't make ashtrays and windows. Over the years, HRE.COM has helped literally thousands of people get themselves sorted out. The information that HRE.COM provided allowed people to run their cars effectively, learn 'secrets' that others didn't know or wouldn't share, even start businesses, make a living and prosper. And every one of them adhered to the rules.

Outside of the manual, I don't make a nickel off this site. The $40.00 a year that is paid in dues doesn't come close to covering the cost of this site. Not counting people who forget to pay, can't afford to pay (I don't buy that if you own a racecar, but hey, it happens) or don't get reminded that they're due and a sensible person would just close the doors. If I was a sensible person, I would have Sold this domain name for the crazy money that I've been offered for it. So I am clearly NOT a sensible person. then again, neither are any of you as far as I can tell.

We all pretty much are related in the fact that we enjoy this sport, enjoy fabricating, figuring things out and making things work.

I have always said that I'd close this place when it stopped being fun. Well, it's still open and although there have been plenty of times when the fun was hard to find, I still think that HRE.COM is the BEST place on the internet to find answers to questions that are important. I still get a kick out of someone sending me a note telling me that my manual helped them out. I am filled with pride when YOU guys, who run fantastic cars and incredible programs, recommend the manual and site to others.

I'd rather see 10 posts a month that MEAN something than 1000 posts a week of stupid stuff that is so prevalent elsewhere. This Ain't Oprah.

So when I ask for a particular thing, it's because I want it that way. If someone isn't willing to ID themselves, then they don't have the privilege of being a member here.
