    It’s permanent.
    You can use him as a regular characterafter completing seedway
    His power is exactly like chuck but weaker.

    Ayrton Senna’s power is the same as chuck for me, basically you teleport ahead and then go at max speed (yes you do go max speed, I used it after crashing left and right and speed up) but there is a catch, if you crash into a wall during the max speed part you will fall of your kart, but if you crash into a opponent when in the max speed part, they will fall of their kart.

    The shoemerang, kind of a interesting choice, I use the dragster snout and I saw it has monsterous speed and very good strength, good handling, and good acceleration, but not high.

    what do you mean weaker? It’s just that he is too fast and you can’t really control him

    @rowdypup Well, I know one thing. Since this update came, poor Mechanic Pig lost his voice! LOL

    Since the Ayrton Senna Update came, Mechanic Pig no longer speaks or makes noises.

    @rowdypup Well, technically, Mechanic Pig can have his voice back, but only if you are selecting a kart in the garage. Once you are back to the main area for upgrading your kart, Mechanic Pig loses his voice again. Once again, poor little Mechanic Pig. LOL

    After 41 victories it just gives you a helmet for ayrton senna (wow),I was expecting something better. About ayrton senna i think he is permanent but,permanent and just a costumed chuck. Its like the update brought more cupcakes for chuck. Anyway I like ABGO and I will wait for something really amazing.
    P.S I’d love an update adding silver.

    @flingmaster You can actullay put his helmet on and off by pressing a button on the left side of his name board when Ayrton Senna is being selected from the Big Tree. :)

    How many of you have the helmet already? Who was first?

    By Leroy the Sideborg.

    I do.

    @stickpig2 I received the Helmet already, and I got the Jenga mode to thank for big time! I certainly did get the helmet by getting 41 victories as Ayrton Senna. And I did it all during today, July 2nd! By winning the Jenga mode for most of my wins AND a couple of other event victories, I got the helmet today, quickly and easily.

    If I was the first to get the Ayrton Senna Helmet, that’s awesome, but sadly, I’m afraid one of the Windows Phone users got it first sincw they got the Ayrton Senna Update early.

    But it would still be awesome if I am the first iOS user to get the Helmet, which I may be! :)

    By the way, if you unlocked the racing helmet, it’s possible you will be racing against 2 Ayrton Senna Birda in Race Events. Talk about racing against twins!

    Have an awesome day and keep things furious!! :D

    @sal9 Okay, so it looks like there is no new track in this update. That’s a bummer. I was really hoping for a 3rd Nighttime Seedway Track.

    Now a few questions remain….

    1. Will there be new surprises along the way?

    2. Will the tree get any bigger for 6 to 7 more racers? And by 6 to 7 More racers, I mean Dahlia, Willow, Luca, Poppy, Gale, Handsome Pig, and maybe even Minion Pig!

    Who knows what’ll happen…

    @furyslinger I actually sent a letter to Rovio (back in February) to add some more characters, such as Chef Pig, Ice Bird, The Eggs (in the Nest), Hambo, and much more!

    By furyslinger2000 (@furyslinger200)

    @rowdypup That’s actually pretty cool to hear. Along witht he Stella characters I mentioned earlier, they are pretty goof candidates for new characters, except foe the eggs. It’s not that the eggs are a bda choice for racers, but I don’t think that’s possible. Besides, I am pretty sure Red and the other birds would be pretty mad if the Eggs are in the races and wind up breaking apart in the crashes.

    Ice Bird, Chef Pig, Hambo, whatever characters you’ve mentioned, on the other hand, are pretty good candidates.

    We’ll see what happens. Until them, keep things furious!! :D

    @furyslinger200 not only did I send in characters, but costumes too, like a Scepter for King Pig, Candy for Bubbles, Tony for Terence, Space Red mask for Red, and much more!

    I have tons of ideas for Angry Birds, and if Rovio needs any, they know who to call! :)

    from what ive observed, this update made the other racers LIGHT(er), so now, they get pushed around by anything VERY easily!

    Not sure if anyone else as noticed this yet but at least on Android, even if you run out of cupcakes on Aytron Senna, you can continue to race with him on the team multi-player….shhh…don’t tell Rovio!

    By Rock

    @abgofast I noticed that too. @birdleader don’t fix that, fix the crashing problem. And add @rowdypup‘s characters to the game.

    Rock, birdleader cant fix anything in abgo, because this is a fanmade community. Report your problems to rovio.com.

    By Rock (@rock)

    Oh. Well I would like to suggest some updates for Angry birds Go.

    As of today….the bug on Android that allowed you to race Senna bird even without cupcakes is gone off my device. You have to buy more cupcakes with gems, watch a video or wait for the cupcakes to return (cook? … mmm cupcakes … hungry now). It was a great 5 days when I could run as many Senna races as I wanted in both single and multi-player.

    @sal9 and forum readers

    I’ve uncovered the secret power of the Helmet. With the news that you can choose to race with or without it, I found this out:

    Use Senna bird WITHOUT helmet and he tires out after 5 cupcakes just like the other birds.

    Use Senna bird WITH helmet and he never tires out !!!

    I confirm this works on Android platforms. Any iOS racers notice this too?

    I don’t know if this is a bug that I mentioned a few days ago or this was Rovio’s intention for this feature… for now, I’m now labeling it …

    the POWER of the HELMET

    Race hard and race fast my friends!

    By David Shin

    the senna bird is a good one… i used him to unlock chuck… but there is a slight difference between them…. they both have the same power, but………. senna bird’s power is FASTER than chucks….. i saw this when i was versing him…. when chuck bumps into me , he knocks me of, but when i ump into him, we both fall pff, why? because senna bird’s faster

    By David Shin

    also senna bird’s is to hard to control because he’s faster
