Experience is the best teacher...

On this page I'll include some of my tips and tricks I've learned while doing my hobby. Where appropriate, I'll include steps or pictures to help clarify my explanations.

Please feel free to contribute your own tips - I'll post the best ones so everyone can see them.

Here's an example of a tip I might include in a hobby site about cooking.

Tip 1: Baking with Eggs

When baking, always bring eggs to room temperature first. Cold eggs may cause the batter to curdle, which could affect the cake's texture. To quickly bring eggs to room temperature, let them soak in a bowl of warm water for about a half hour.

***!!! WARNING !!!***
SOAP BOX RACING IS INHERENTLY DANGEROUS
AND MAY RESULT IN BODILY INJURY OR DEATH.
DO NOT ENTER UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND THAT.
Like: downhill cycling, mountain biking, skiing, skateboarding, snowboarding, bmx, rollerblading, and other extreme and non-extreme activities. Soap box racing is dangerous, cars can reach upward of 50+ m.p.h.. Soapbox events are held on public roads and variable conditions always exist. The fact that your soapbox car will have, steering, brakes, and maybe a roll cage and seat belts should not imply that this activity is safe in anyway. Soapbox karts should obey all traffic rules to the same effect as a bicyclist, skateboarder, wheelchair or any other NON-motorized activity that may occupy the roadway.
