For the racers that like to get a room just to pit in and another room to sleep in, the hotel will work on clearing out the beds for 25 bucks. If you are interested in this please email me and I will shoot you the contact person at the Radisson.

There is no additional discount for the room I need to add...
There are some ground floor rooms real real close to the ballroom you can also inquire about.

I have to admit, the new hotel is awesome, I was over there last weekend for the heck of it, and it's a 500% improvement on the old place.

You guys are running tires for motors? I've read it a million times and never noticed... lol

So when do we find out the classes?

Hey Mike,
Can you let us know what the spec tire for stock rubber will be? We have a warm up race coming shortly and inquiring minds want to know.

CS27 for motors - wow missed that one CO more like it.

I am pretty sure we can behave and stay all week. Can't be worse than bike week in Daytona or Spring Break (let's hope). Actually the management and staff are real laid back and great...

Tires I hope to have announced in a week or two.

From the Snowbirds webpage.....

Racing Expo at the Snowbirds
We have had some interest in running the F1/Indy cars and SK Modifieds in expo heats this year for the 'birds. Look for a possible special heat of these cars. R/C open wheel road and oval cars will be awesome to see.
E-Mail Mike to get on the list of drivers!

I've sent email for the F1/Cart/Indy race!!!

I am so butt-sisted about be able to run my F1 again I'm gonna go get it out and start getting it ready. I assume the class rules will be like the TCS rules...
F1 chassis and body, rubber tires, 4 wheel drive, stock motor and 8 minutes run time.... This class will bring on a lot of people to watch it...

My F1 is the 3Racing chassis with every hopup.. I got about $1200 tied up in it... My setup:
3Racing carbon fibre chassis
Lightweight diffs
Lightweight drive shafts
Alumimiun rocker arms and steering arm
Titamium turnbuckles and screws
Ride tires and rims
Aluminium layshaft bearing covers
Metal adjustable shocks
Adjustable motor mount
And more I can't think of....

I wonder what the rules will be for the F1's. I will be driving the new DF1 from MLP at the birds. Hopefully 19t, any battery or lipos But i still have a F201 if needed but gotta rebuild it
