Speed at the 2020 Brodak Fly In
« on: December 31, 2019, 07:06:49 AM »
For 2020, I have altered the event schedule and moved the Speed events to Thursday morning.  The primary purpose of this change is to move Fun Carrier to Wednesday so as to eliminate the gap between Rule Book Carrier and Fun Carrier.

Perky and  Two-Way Speed (Sportsman & Expert) will continue unchanged.

Fox 35 Stunt Speed has been dropped for the program after four years of flying.  The event has boiled down to the same three flyers with the same scores.  The question of how fast you can go with a fully-modified Fox 35 Stunt has been answered.

Well that's a drag. I guess they'll just have to keep rockin' those Fox 35's in Mountain View Park. Hoping to be out there with them sometime next year.

  If you really want to see how fast the Fox 35 Stunt can go, remove the fuel restrictions! >:D

I don't want to get into the business of revising somebody else's rules. 
But in my opinion, the event needed more guidelines of what constitutes a "modified Fox 35 Stunt". 
They didn't even require you to use the crankcase. 
As it stands now, the event is only open to those who own or have access to a really good machine shop.
But the AMA Rule Book already has about 20 speed & racing events for engine builders.
