looking forward to the race. sure hope there is a good assortment of blinky classes for people that want to work on cars and driving, not speedos and motors.

Hahaha - i think your barking up the wrong tree..
I've never spent so much time on brushless motors until blinky hit the scene.

The only way to spend time on just your cars and driving is to have a sealed handout locked timing motor. A hand out speedo might be cool too, but feels unnecessary as long as we can only run ROAR certified models.

no, i know what you are saying. what i meant by working on the them was changing out melted ones for fresh ones. having a good motor is part of racing, and im not saying that blinky means you dont have to have a good one, what im saying is that i saw alot of equipment get melted down for no reason.

i dont want to hijack this thread and turn it into blinky vs non blinky. there are other threads for that, and mike does not deserve to have it in his. this is a great race, always has been, and i will be going either way. just prefer blinky, thats all.

and by the way. i have no problem with handout sealed motors, and i think it is a great idea.

Yep, the only thing Mario prefers unsealed is his liquor.

Hello racers... HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

We are really getting excited about the 2012 Snowbirds and hope you are too. Most all our sponsors from 2011 have already confirmed they are returning and we have some new companies coming this year to the 'birds! With last year being our largest turnout in many years, 2012 is going to be even better! Classes are being worked on now and will be posted soon. No big surprises here.. just trying to do a good mix and run what is being run at most tracks and big races. Entry usually goes live at the end of November. Already some exciting news on our race page. Make sure to check daily as our Facebook page is on the race site and we try and post something new daily. And in case you missed it - hotel rates were lowered this year to save some money! Until next time...

Mike Boylan

Can't wait for this race, as it will be the first time that I will be going to the Snowbirds... Have the airline tic. paid for, room reserved, and hopefully there will be plenty of cold beer in the bar

Everything I have read and everyone I have spoken to said I will have a great time....Can't wait.
