Man, what a sorry article. I thought that having some editor at the Snowbirds for a few days would actually have gotten a page. That makes us look like a bunch of tools with a jacked body.

Default Look at it like this...

WE know the body is jacked up and yes the plug is a lil on the lame tip (fledgling truespeed, talk about a STAB), but hey, RC mention in any form of mainstream media, as long as it isnt waking the neighbors or breaking an old ladies leg, is PROPS! Paul should still be gorilla pimp slapped for that lame ass body though!

There is no such thing as bad publicity. By the way look at the top of page 38 in the new Hot Rod magazine. There is a small blurb about RC drag racing. Anything that gets the RC hobby in the public eye is good for everybody.

I talked with Paul and he said they put something under the car to make it look like it was cornering. Well, they tried.

As quoted in the article by Tony "Paul could race NASCAR if he wanted to".

OK.....$70,000 a year if you are on top in RC. Or $700,000 a year to race NASCAR and finish 30th for the season.

Paul....we need to talk. You are confused with your proirities.

Glad to see that I wasn't the only one who thought about that comment. I was like "Gee Tony, if he could race NASCAR if he wanted too, why don't you get him on the ABC (Arca/Busch/Cup) program?"

Oh and Todd...get back to work

"...and may put in as much as $ 70.000 this year."
Is that including his salary or without?

Glad to see you guys saw that too. Paul in a NASCAR for 2007, maybe that's what the new 007 will be, a 1:1 oval car.
