Sad to hear that Ron has passed away. He was a great person and he contributed lots of effort to promote this hobby.

R/C racing has lost a true legend. Anyone that has been involved in the hobby/sport (especially in Nitro) for a long time will tell you that he was "The Man".

We have all lost a great friend and competitor in the R/C Industry. Ron Paris passed away on the morning of Oct. 3, 2001. He put up a terrific fight for his heath this last year with some great results. Ron fought with the same determination and devotion that made him such a great competitor and so successful at the race track. With all the success Ron had achieved on the track and in his battle for his heath, I thought he was going for another win. That is why this is such a shock to me. I will miss the bench racing with Ron, swapping stories of bands we each played in (Ron was a very good drummer), and talking about our dogs (Ron loved dogs). God must be racing R/C cars in heaven, because he just called on his best engine and chassis tuner ever.
