Paul, why do you list both Xray and Hudy? Aren't they the same company/people? Or....?

The Hudy's own both Xray and Hudy and they are manufactured in the same building but i think its technically a different company. or maybe Hudy is the manufacturing company and xray is the marketing. im not really sure.

Ouch, Paul.
Could it be that hudy is the tool making company and Xray the car making company. It may be a marketing gimmick though. You know, you can't race for a company other than Xray and have Xray tools on your table. You can have Hudy tools though.

Hey Mr. Paul, you are a damn good racer and wanted to congratulate you on your new sponsors. I know I am just a regular racer and all, but I figure I jump in and say grats!

Will you be in Maryland for the 2010 ROAR Nats in March?

Hey all: Congrats on the new sponsor Paul. With your move to thunderpower lipo will you still be running trinity/epic brushless or switching that as well? Since you use futaba radios have you tried out their new brushless esc? Thanks for the info and good luck in 2010
