It appears you want to have a page for components, Chassis, Engine, Rear Axle, not sure how that would work or how you would control it, would not want to be 'booted' for asking an axle question in a chassis page?
    That is not what I want, as I tried to point out, and it seems you misunderstood, that a kit car is assembled from multiple mechanical sources and for the best advice on a hybrid as an example, the chassis is Marlin, the engine from one of several Triumph, and the Rear axle is Marina.

    So I for example have paper copies of all the relevant manufacturers workshop manuals and parts lists, as well as access to each of the relevant online owners forums and resources. Each resource has its own individual relevance and significance.

    As I said, the MOC is not the last word or only resource, though it does have a significant part to play.

    If for example, I did not have continuing personal discussions with Marina owners around the planet, it is unlikely that the solution to Marina steering rack problems would have a workable solution. That only happens when otherwise unrelated resources actually get together cooperate and share their findings.

    Finally, I manage a resource of documents at keepandshare, that I have personally collated, that is not exclusively Marlin related, it is valid for multiple Marina, and Marina based vehicles, not just Marlin Roadsters. It’s a comprehensive resource, Parts lists, Workshop manuals, and my own experiences etc etc.

    Are you suggesting that I should restrict my resource to solely members of the MOC? How would that help the broader community of enthusiasts?

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    I am not suggesting you do anything. I go to MOC because of the knowledge and experience I see there, mine is single donor BMW based, but I know of many sources of info, and many people to talk to if I have an issue, each to their own I believe.
