I understand the ambition. I'm personally more interested in a niche forum. Anyways, the nas-row url may make it more difficult to pick up traffic compared to sites with Defender in the name. I also doubt many new Defender drivers have any clue what NAS or ROW means.
When we started out, we had access to a few domains similar to ones used by D-S but we didn't want to be a wannabe copy of that place, we wanted to do something completely different: a stripped-down, fast-loading, clean site that would feel like a breath of fresh air. That's why we chose N-R for the name.
The neat thing about forums is that the content sticks around. D-S has the benefit of a couple of decades of posts but we are growing tremendously here and eventually, the historical corpus of our site will meet or exceed what they have. The more people that find us, the more this site grows and thus, we're more findable. The virtuous cycle My most sincere thanks to everyone posting exclusively here. You're why this place is growing so quickly.
