I got all your secrets already- It was in the memo....

And really great information to everyone else- just have a conversation with Paul while he his racing - and he can't drive- he'll spin it out on the straight.... If he refuses- just keep talking to him, it will break him down.

Hey Paul,

It sounds like your secret is out now (I wasn't gonna say anything..ha...ha..ha...ha) but good old Bill had to make a public announcement....LOL. I guess it is time for you to use some ear plugs to filter out the "NOISE" on the driverstand.

Which compound Sweep tires should I get? Will be for prepped asphalt, medium to high grip. Heading into winter, so should I go for the Sweep slicks 45 EXP?

I would recommend 45 exp on ROK rims with medium LS inserts.

I started doing that on my F1's. It is painted on the outside with Parma backing paint. I cut the protective film on the outside, using it like liquid mask on the inside!! here are a few of my rides painted the same way:
