you won't become a Mod. they make you one when you really know about stuff
It's based specifically on you, what you have to offer, how you interact with others on the site, how active you are, knowledge base (for the vehicle parts) etc etc.......(this is a mere observation that I made when I see new mods coming onto the staff)
Anyone could be a mod really. (but if you just joined the site it'll be a while )
