I feel the need to share a little story with you guys.

Paul probably didn't want this to go public because he is not a look at me kind of guy.......but thats just too bad.

We all know that Paul is one of the best racers in the world, but for those of you that haven't met Paul......he is truly one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. I have seen him bend over backwards for people hundreds of times but last week at the iic he blew my mind.

By now most of you know that the trailer for the iic race was stolen. Alot of the racers donated some cash to help Scotty.
Paul took this one step further.....he donated his entire winnings from the king of the hill award to Scotty to help pay for the trailor.

In a hobby where negativity and bad apples seem to get the most attention Paul has gone about his business and done things the right way and I applaud him for that.

Hello Gents.
Has anyone been able to post video on the net of the mains?

Paul.
I,ve mentioned your name enough times at home now that my wife has started to refer to you as my boyfriend!

Suffice to say youre doing this sport proud and some other pros need to take notice and step up.
Dave.

Awesome job at the IIC!!

I was just looking at your setup and had noticed that you Roll Center settings were very low in the front and rear of the car (-.75) I thought that setting was mostly just for foam tire racing. I had tried that same setup on my 007 in practice (@ Trackside) but backed out of it because I thought I was going too slow.

Your upper shock positions are further inward than I thought they should be. Was the high bite carpet a factor in that choice?

I can't tell from the setup sheet what springs you used. I don't think that they should be really soft so I am assuming they are med hard to very hard springs. can you compare them to the colored springs that I am using (yellow, white, lt blue,etc)

Thanks for the help.
