There was a track for on road at Chibana on the old tennis courts. There is also a track out by Murasaki Mura (near Hotel Ali Villa) owned by Siro...

Went to Siro today to pick up some nitro. They do carry Faskolor if you are still looking for some.

if you guys want to meet up somewhere and run, let me know. my friends and i have been having a lot of fun getting these stock RTR tamiya TT01s because the competition is intense when everyone's car is equal. and they are decently priced. Siro carries them for about 21,000 yen RTR with a 2.4Ghz radio. i got one and got my buddy to get one. another buddy saw us running and we took him to siro and be bought one immediately so now there's 3 of us. now another buddy wants to get one. our little group of touring car racing is growing :P we drift sometimes too but i like the close racing better.

these TT01's actually surprised me. with a good lipo battery, the stock esc and motor are pretty quick. and then if you slap on some of the tires from siro the traction is amazing and it steers great. i was expecting them to be very sloppy and inconstant, but with a few tweaks costing just a few dollars, you can actually make them extremely competitive.

OK Folks. I am back. Been having serious issues sort of on here. I cannot reset my password for crap so I just created a new account.
I am ready to join in on the on-road race but like Jon will be running a TA-05. I am running the old Siro standard. I think a 28T.
I went to the Chibana track last Sunday and it is fine. The Stand is a little spooky but I stood on Jons shed roof before he added railing so no problems there.

Now for my new issue. My Futaba 3PKS is burning up servos and have no idea why. I can hook up an old AM and they are fine. When I use the FASST, The servos make a buzzing noise until they burn-out. Lost one good servo, and one old servo trying to remedy it. I am lost. It has nothing to do with Analog or digital servos. I ran this exact set-up before and it didn't do this. Help me out please.

Jason

Go straight past the light out Kadena Gate three. As soon as you pass the Fire Station on your left take a left toward Chibana Golf course. Drive until you see the kids park on your right and park in the Parking lot to your left. The Track is in an old tennis court behind the kids park.

Bad BEC would be my first guess but you did swap Rx's...

I don't know if the padlock is gone, but the side gate was open last time I drove by and looked.
