Oh and cool to know about the warbird racing.

I was at Central Hobbies website looking at the YS engines and saw the Warbird Racing special edition 115. My first thought was "Huh, I wonder where that is going on at?"

Yeah, it started as a local deal here in California, mainly around Sacramento. But it spread and grew to the point that last year or the year before, it became an official event at the Nationals in Muncie. Frankly, pylon racing itself seems to be kind of an anomaly, still has a huge following, at least in the west. Races in SoCal and Arizona have to limit contestants at times because it gets unmanageable.

Since magazines (RCM,MAN, AMA) aren't as big of a deal anymore, I think most people miss some of these things.

Interesting discussion! I fall into the "likes wood" crowd, but of course composite materials are also very familiar.

It's very true that the hobby has changed in the last few years, I know my perspective has shifted pretty dramatically. It's still fun, just in a different way.
