Got this tip from a factory Schumi driver; use motorbike chain oil on spray. Makes the CVD's very free and it's very easy to apply if the can has the pin extension.

Seaball? :P
I don't know who the manager really is, if we have one at all. Shawn Palmer is there for the team orders (I believe Adam can take them too) and I have been sending feedback and ideas to Chris Ashton (Euro team manager)

I cut it pretty small and basically mount it as far back as possible. At the ROAR nats there is a maximum of 10mm past the rear bumper though, so that's where it is still sitting.

Hey Randy do you prefer the Mazda6 over the Speed6? If so, why?

On most tracks I do, I feel like they have about the same amount of steering but the Speed 6 seems to get loose easier and makes the car a little harder to drive without any real benefits. My favorite body of all time is the Yokomo Stratus Type-E though, just wish I could find them for sale still.
