    25 most popular topics/threads of 2019!



    2019 was a busy year for the forum!

    There were a lot of threads that got your attention, on topics ranging from navel-gazing, to problem solving, to handy DIY's, to idle chatter. Below are some of the hottest discussions of the year (chosen either because they had the most replies or the most views).

    Note: sticking exclusively to a Jan-Dec timeframe handicaps topics that are started late in the year, so I'm including a few stand-outs that were started at the end of the previous year.

    Here's hoping 2020 is off to a good start for you & yours - happy, healthy, prosperous!

    Man, if somebody came on here looking for input on whether to buy a Mirage, they probably won't after seeing that top 25 lol.

    Wait...I don't see the word "CVT" in any of the top 25 threads.

    Did you just do that to keep Dirk from getting triggered?

    Definitely glad CVT didn't make the top 25 lol. I advocate incessantly about the virtues of the CVT7 in the Mirage on youtube.

    There maybe was some, uh, pruning & selection involved in putting together the list.

    I think the kids call it "curating" these days.

    The list is actually a combination of the top 25 threads by views and the top 25 by activity (postcount). There was a certain amount of overlap between the 2 lists, but it wasn't complete.

    Just for fun, I may put together another list of the top 10 of all time, by views & posts.

    Loren's thread about autocrossing the Mirage has insane information. I read his posts several times about how the Mirage handles and it was SUPER helpful when I took my Mirage out to the track.
