Hey Chesty not online... still adding them and wanted to wait on some more teams and Manufactures Row drivers to get in too. Our hotel list is way above our room block which is an awesome sign the Snowbirds is going to have a great turnout (better than last year)!

There's been a lot of chatter that the Jaco tires for Snowbirds will be on an entirely new wheel (possibly a dish). Any truth to that? What about the rubber and inserts, any expected changes there? It seems unusual to make a change to a spec tire for a big race. Who is testing these beforehand to make sure they're okay?

If there is a new wheel, I guess you guys at the birds are first?

The new wheel's are just fine, they have been on the market for a long time. The rubber seems almost the same but I don't really know enough to comment on that.

Strange....... The race is just about a week away, and there's been no postings in like two days on this thread. And no confirmed racers list to boot. What's going on?

Do we need lipo charging sacks? I don't own one and would need to order one before I leave...

Hello racers! No worries there is plenty of excitement going on that is for sure. I will be working on the entries to put up as we are expecting a bunch from teams this week that are already confirmed to be coming. The hotel room count is higher that last year and we have about 10 new sponsors coming with drivers. I am feeling like we will past last year... I just don't want over estimate so we will see in a week that is for sure. A lot of new excitement for the Snowbirds we are excited about (most on our race site)!!! Just the trend these days is that so many sign up last minute. If half the entries are in now, then we will past 600 for sure!
