More steering would be nice, since I feel like it starts to push 2/3 thru a race.

Will you explain 'more stable'? Thanks Sean.

The car just feels a little easier to drive with the protoform or the parma, but that usually means a little slower in onroad racing....especially in stock.

For me, Im thinking the CRC is my stock body of choice, but I will start with the other bodies for mod racing.

I want to let my extended H30 family in on the news...

My wife and I are gonna have a kid! She's at 12 weeks now.

I've been fluctuating anywhere between happy and terrified since we found out, but mostly happy.

Anyhoo, wanted to let you guys know.

Bill; when we roll up to customs, let Todd do the talking.

Don't offer up anything extra. If they ask what your purpose for traveling to Canada is today, don't tell them you are going to get a hair cut. If they ask if we are traveling with any hand guns, do not use the words: of course. All of these comments in the past have delayed one of my visits.
