Default SnowBirds winning brands of chassis,motors,batterys,etc?

Its great to see lists of winning drivers but I would love to see what equipment they were running chassis motors, batteries, ESC, Servos, ETC.

There was a time when the RC magazines routinely posted charts but lately the information seems to be harder and harder to come by.

If anyone has this information or anyone who can figure out from the list of winning drivers what they probably were running, I would appreciate it .

Note: In particular I am interested in road course 1/10 TC.
Thanks in advance,

Jilles would have been using a Tamiya 417 Chassis, with Orion motors and Lipos, Tamiya speed controller, Sanwa radio gear and a Protoform bodyshell.

Default Weird?

The RC manufactures spend tens of thousands of dollars sponsoring teams and drivers, Yet I find it like pulling teeth to find out what products won or placed at various events.
If I was X-ray or Hot Bodies or Thunderpower or whoever and my product dominated the TC classes at the Snowbirds(or any big race) I would want to shout that from the roof tops, after all that was the whole purpose of bringing a team or sponsoring a driver.
Yet????????

Look how few posts this thread has got. ??? heck if I ran those companies I would be have to resist spamming these forums.

Weird. Stupid weird. Imagine some one who is paid to market RC products knowing his product did very well at some big race and ignoring a thread which asked how various products did, you would think marketing people would be falling all over themselves to publicize their success???
Yeah, if I go to their web site they may be advertising their win but that assumes I am going to go to a dozen web sites to try and figure out who did best at a particular race.

Hey I would love to work in the RC business, X-Ray, HPI, Tamiya Kyosho,
Hire me for your marketing company, I guarantee if your product dominates any big race, people won't need to search the whole damn web to find out about it .

Usually within a week they will post something on RedRC, I think a lot of companies are at the toy fair so maybe they are behind.

Josh DID use a TEKIN in WGT class. He was running the car of Pete Dagnola and I know that Randy was helping set the speedo up and changing stuff for Josh all week. Pete wrenched on the car and Josh drove it. No speed passion or any other speedo in that car.

I even contacted Snowbirds - Mike on Facebook among other forums with ZERO replies about what equipment was used...

I agree with this. Why do companies bother to sponsor and send people to races if they never get the recognition when those racers do well with their products? The magazines and blogs clearly don't care, they'd have to give up space that could be better filled with yet another aluminum hopup for some SCT. We need to do something about this...

So I will. I need help, though, because I don't know what's what in a lot of cases. I need you guys to help me fill in the gaps. In return, I'll do my best to keep a site going that's dedicated to nothing but the equipment used by people in big(ish) races. We need to continue to give companies incentive to sponsor racers and races, and get the exposure they deserve for their financial support of racing.

Please PM or email ([email protected]) me as much info as you can, and I'll update the pages.
