Snowbirds Motor Tech 2007

Snowbirds Motor Tech 2007

With the biggest indoor race in the world, The Snowbirds, only around the corner the organisers have released some of their findings with regards concerns that some stock motors come 10 degrees timed more or less than the factory 24 degrees they are supposed to be. Of the 40 motors tested, 20 new CS27s and 20 new Komodos, none had any major tweaking to the timing but there were some tiny differences due to tolerances. You can see the highly accurate gauge in the picture above that will be used to test all racers and anyone found with a heavily tweaked armature will be disqualified, so best check with tech control before the racing starts.

You can read their full report and see more images here.
