Searching the Rennlist Forums through Google (courtesy of Hilton):


If you add these terms to a search on Google, it limits the results to ones from this forum:

Put just those into Google, then make a bookmark/favorite after searching - next time you want to search, open the bookmark/favorite, add keywords, and search. e.g. Put this into Google:
