I talked with (or struggled to comunicate by any means neccesary) with Morizio from Nuova Fuoar at the SV race in August. He said aaaaaaa me ridcky neetdro aaaaa no good. and proceed to wave his hands as to show how it's squirly. I just laughed and nodded my head. Long story short... he tried to convert one.
