Martin -

i read the "Paragon" thread and i'm sorry to hear that you're pretty much forced to give up something you love to do. Hopefully something changes quickly and you can be back on the track quickly and represent Tamiya again!

Anyway, good luck and represent tamiya with pride.
Martin, You will be missed thats for sure. Thankyou for your very long PM's regarding setup options, its something you didnt have to do, but you did, and it made the world of difference to my setup and driving. Thanks again for all you did for Tamiya and RC

Hey Martin. Sorry to hear you're leaving the sport, especially due to something that is beyond your control. I think anything on tyres should be banned period. BtW, your book rocks!

Hi Martin, I just read your posts and it really bums me out. You're a good race friend and an icon to this hobby. It's a shame that you'll have to leave the competetive aspect of it and I wish you the best in future endevours.

If you need anything, let me know.
