Got it Leon...

I totally understand the question Carissa... Last year entry was 90 for 27T and 95 for 19T... 80 for all others. Working on setting first motor low to keep it economical. Should have motor info out soon. Last year's entry here: http://snowbirdnationals.com/snow200...entryprint.jpg

We should have entry list in about 2 weeks. Thanks everyone...

Mike

Should note: the goal is to have racers 1st motor under $20 to keep final 27T/19Tentry close to last year (so there will be no big shock on motor prices). I had a couple emails questioning this also and want it to be known this is to set initial entry lower to try and make it easier on racers up front - and be as close to last year as possible in the end. Even with the new venue we wanted to keep it on par with 07....

Mike-Will we have to purchase a motor per class or one stk or 19 for multiple classes?

example. Say I signed up for stk. foam and rubber, can I purchase one motor for both classes or will it be one motor per class?

As long as it is yours, we have always allowed to swap motors in different classes so I don't see why not....

Hey Nova... working on that stuff - actually have a sponsor interested in the F1 class. More soon.

We will have webcam with audio and video, and results on-line. Last year the webcam had 4500+ unique IPs, that was awesome.

Entries are really looking good. Our room block for the hotel last until the 1st of the year - lots of emails asking me this. Not many rooms left though it looks like.... quite a few International drivers already!! Can't wait!!!

Mike,
I was testing at Steel City Hobbies, very close to Snowbirds style track, this past weekend with Jack and the car worked fine and stayed consistant through the whole 4 minutes. I don't see any problems with it.

Regards,
Dave Irrgang

that's all good for the short race but us 12th guys are going to be playing slip and slide at 5 or 6 minutes. the stuff just dries out during a run. dam jack and the horse he rode in on cuz he just slide off the cliff.

Paragon for life peace out.
