There are so many people that have done so many things, it is hard to just pick one. Some people are going to be biased because they have had help from certain members.

If I had to vote,

Tiago, MightyMouse, KP, Harlan no specific order

I vote PSJ too, I have never seen anyone ask so many questions, get really close to getting a combo sorted and then switching to something else. I'm sure there is a special hall of fame for that

And I almost forgot about Raymer, like him or hate him he pushed some some things to the max and showed you could do a lot for a little.

Harlan. Mainly because he (from what I hear) was one of the first to go REAL fast. AND it was much before my LS1 times. I haven't ever even seen his car or his build specs. I would be very interested to see what helped start it all.

Mighty Mouse was also a car that inspired me for YEARS. I even used a video of one of his his 10 second M6 passes in a school project years ago lol.

kp would be the first guy on my list for always having quick consistent set ups. He also helped with tons of advice to me and damn near everyone else in the FI forum from one time to another.

Harlan for setting the bar way back in the day with his twin turbo TA, I still have video's of him cruising it on the street and the infamous liter bike on the highway race.

Mighty Mouse, for his deadly fast street car, he has always impressed the hell out of me with his set ups, and doing damn near everything in his driveway ....and even had his car come down on him

Parish and that wicked fast truck, still have a ton of videos of that beast on the street and track.

[email protected] inc for making some killer *** turbo set ups and that wicked LT1 Camaro he had..... though his new vette is damn impressive too.

I would say KP and Harlan!
John just because of the old dyno queen jokes. He has reprieved himself though.

Awesome thread and pretty cool that it is now a sticky! I think it would be a good idea if there were pic's (decent ones..) of each of these guys so that some of the newer people on here will know who they are. Bob

I agree. Clean the thread with on the top 5 or 10 and add two pics of each car/setup under their name.

Can I throw a vote to every one of them?? haha..

If I had to say one, I would vote for KP... He has been the most humble person about his setup and has never added any fluff... He's about just the facts.. I respect that...
