Paragon has been the best for 15+ years.. its all we use to run..and no one ever complained of being sick from it... Its society as a whole.. this new generation of young people, are whiners.... No one wants to work, and everyone wants to be catered to...it bleeds over to everything.. even rc cars..

Where exactly did you come by these Gems of information about the Indoor Champs? Paragon use at the Champs was really never an issue. There were a few people who proposed the idea, and the notion was pretty much roundly rejected by the STAFF that puts on the US Indoor Champs. There is no "promoter" or any other single individual who mandated that Paragon stay in use, nor any clandestine pressure from the manufacturers. The ROAR Nats have been held in Paragon free facilities before, and amazingly enough, the Factory guys were all still there!! Maybe the major manufacturers pressured Boylan into allowing it at the Snowbirds, but the Champs will more than likely allow it untill the HOTEL tells us we can't.

Let's not speak of conspiracies that don't exist simply because that's what we may have heard or read on a thread in some forum.

Note that the bad stuff in Paragon is the Lacquer Thinner not the Oil of Wintergreen. Oil of Wintergreen has been used for medicinal purposes for years. Its in everything from BenGay to chewing gum.

Lacquer Thinner is also used in other traction compounds...some are labled odorless.

Personally, I would rather have a traction compound with a strong odor that would tip me off to the presence of fumes. This way if I think the smell is to bad I get out of the area. FYI, this is why propane has rotten egg smell added to it.

I have heard before that the odorless stuff is worse for you than the stuff that does smell.

I can always tell there is a serious race, when i smell that amazing smell of paragon...

If you get the right jury, ignorance is a great case for a lawsuit.

hmmm...then you must be that ignorant guy that everyone talks about...you know, the guy that believes everything he reads.

Wow, ya know we have a similar problem here in good old Purgatory, AZ. They just can't figure out who to sue!

A fellow almost passed out after running from a bar at 76 degrees into 112 degree heat (ambient) and 160 degee heat from the asphalt parking lot! He fell and skinned his knees and burned his legs.

A young lady is trying to sue the city, she was wearing short shorts and sat down on a painted steel guard rail at 2 PM.

Or the lady, that was carrying her barefooted toddler and put her on down the asphalt while she unlocked the car door.

People after all these years are still leaving their babies and pets locked up inside the cars, during the summer.

I use Paragon FX II and motor spray, I smoke cigars! Our indoor pits are well ventilated. 2 high velocity fans, and Evap Cooler plus all the personal fans. But, we do not spray chemicals inside the building, nor do we start Nitro's inside either. However, the use of tire dope and my cigars is okay. But, we have learned as a group, if cigar smoke bothers you, go outside, or ask me too!

Funny thing, if someone takes offense to my tire dope or my cigar and ask me if I could refrain. I go outside to indulge.

So what is the problem with Paragon?

You are just too lazy to get off your arse to move (upwind) or to busy running your mouth with BS, that you can't do something constructive for yourself and want others to be responsible for your health and welfare.

I guess we both are over-exposed btw-That's a thesaurus not a dictionary.

I sleep 15 feet away from a bottle of Paragon, maybe that's my problem
