Jason -

I'd like to purchase the ride height adjusters and axle spacers. How many ride height adjustment sizes are there now? I might just buy them all from you and if you can just charge them to the credit card you have on file for me? I'm in D.C. this week and won't be able to call before your normal closing time.

btw: the car is getting better each time I go out. Had a decent run with it on Sunday. But I'm still not happy with my speed. Must go faster! I have some more thing I am going to try this coming weekend.

Regarding tweaking - the car does not tweak. I had some glitches on Sunday that sent my car flying off the track at the end of the straight (hard left launched it) that split the top graphite motor plate and bent the top shock cap. so, it was a very hard hit. However, the car did not tweak!

The cool thing is that on Saturday when I was prepping my car, I had tried some different shims on the front end. My side to side ride height was off by .5mm at the droop point. I new my tires, etc were all set and the only thing I changed were my (plastic) shims. I took those out, replaced them with metal shims that I had measured, and the inconsistent ride height was gone.

I know it initally smells more, but you'll get used to it. I get headaches from Jack but no problems with Paragon..

(Dont mind the old SMC.. lol new ones are on the way!)

(Ill send adrian the final pics once it is 100% done and the new body mounted on her)

I was going to SoCal raceway 4 days a week for a while, paragon is all you use there, so eventually, you just dont even notice the smell.

What about us Parma guys

Cool deal bro. I will get them out today. The front shims come in 6 sizes. You can run full size tires down to the rim in .5mm increments.

I will work on some shims for them too. The offset is not as much. The shims wouldnt need to be as thick.

To be honest, I dont remember many of the names of the customers that bought the cars. I know them more by screen names on here so i didnt really get to follow many of them.

Hi Jason,

Cool - go ahead and send/bill me the entire set plus the axle spacers. Oh, can you also send/bill me:

- another carbon fiber top deck for the motor mount.
- 3 more sets of the pivot balls/pivot ball holders assembly that is for the hockey-stick tweak plates. I want to have those so I can just easily swap in an assembled tweak plate to try different thicknesses.

Charge it all to my credit card.

Thanks!
-Rich
