Surprised no Snowbird thread, and no class roster lineup on the site, am I missing something ?

There is also this...

http://www.snowbirdnationals.com/

It is odd that there is no thread though.

This race is a week away and there seems to be NO buzz, normally there's a Snowbird thread 30 is pages deep around this time

That's weird. I'm almost sure I've seen a thread for the 2017 race before but can't find it either.

Aside from an entry list, it's all there, as best I can see. Classes, schedule and all that.

Yeah, that in itself is weird. I guess this is the event thread now. Oh well, I'll be watching what I can on LRC.

I agree it's word. It's my first so not sure what to expect.

At IIC they had us take apart our motors, they checked them fully and gave back for us to put back together. Does the Snowbirds race also do this?

You'll have a great time at the Snowbirds. Mike and the team are awesome, and if you have any questions there are plenty who will be happy to help.

There is motor tech at the Snowbirds, and you will need to take your motor out of the car for it. Previous years it has not involved taking the motor apart. There has been a label and marking put on the motor, and varnish on the motor screws.

(Tip...leave enough time for the varnish to dry before putting the motor back in your car for your next run. If time is tight wait until after the run )
