    I added some code to help debug the mysterious missing screen-name problem. If you try to submit a form and it "thinks" that either the name or screen-name is blank, it will post an error. We'll see what happens...

    I also realised that the cool alternating row colors that are supposed to help make the list readable get all hosed up when you change the sorting of a column...

    ** Added drag racing tire sizes to the front and rear tire options. You can now specify standard sizes (ex. 245/40R17) or racing sizes (ex. 31/13R15).

    Next is to add a check box for same size front and rear wheels/tires. Although if selected, the user will still need to include Suspension, Mods notes for the front and rear separately. This is to make it clear which end of the car has which mods.

    Also need to fix the sorting function. That is definitely a valuable tool that needs to work.

    I am working on code expandability, to make it easier for additions and changes. Also, since I whipped it quickly the first go around, I'm starting to document to make it easier for me, and the next guy. (All the engineers out there are nodding...)

    Thanks! :thumbs2:

    Great idea. After posting a question for pics I noticed this thread. Will post pics as soon as the wheels and tires are in and on!

    Swapped out the too deep 3.79 backspace rears for the 4.5 with 5/16" spacers...no more rub! Still needs another half coil removed from the front, but it's getting there.

    I entered mine, but there's not enough space to completely enter the wheel info. And I wanted to edit the the info afterwards but I couldn't figure how. (maybe it's just my computer illiteracy ?)

    If you go back to the database home screen it has an edit option. Found this after I messed up the first entry!

    Well I tried to add pics, but it's just too complicated for me who's not computer savvy enough to figure it out.

    baddad457,

    Sorry, I know the webpage is confusing. I am working on a newer version that is much more better. :) I see what you were trying to do, I can fix it.

    It's no big deal. I even tried to email thru here, but there's no way to add pics there either. I can email them via yahoo mail, also have them posted in my photobucket site.
