paul - i wish you luck in your next move. may you be used for your talents, and rewarded proportionately.

Are we sure PW is leaving Schumacher? Is this opening his replacement or just additional help in the office?

I have yet to witness such carnage on any car...
Sorry bud, but I saw it with my own two eyes. And it wasn't Harshguy. It was Calvin Simmons at BCR in Orange County. I was turn marshaling and I picked the car up off the track after it happened. Like Darkseid said, just because you've never seen it doesn't mean it's impossible.


On another, more important note. I'm very sorry that Paul has decided to leave Schumacher. He's been a great help to me over the last 3 years and I've learned a ton from him.

Paul, good luck in your new job. I'm sure we'll run into each other at big races sometime.

Default Whaddafuxup!!!

Why has two of the best minds at SchumacherUSA decided to seek out other places of employment?? First Adrian, now Paul Getting the MI3 was gotten partially because of these two. Who else can I call up at ShuieUSA and talk shop with for 30min+ LOL. Is Shuie doing something wrong here?!
I do know though in the end we all have to do what we've gotta do....

tOo BaD, sOo sAd

Thanks guys for all the kind words!

Schumacher is going strong and I can assure you that customer service is still priority #1 with Shawn Palmer running the show

Try harder front tires.
Heaver front oil (5-10wt).
Remove spacer from rear hub.
Lay the shocks in (front and rear) 1 or 2 holes on the tower.

Damn it I felt my heart drop when I heard about this. It won't be the same without you at Schumacher.
