Make me an offer. If you can stop by the Naval Hospital this week I will bring the stuff for you to see.

The offer I would make would be enou. Problem is I do not have that kind of money to make that offer. Another issue I have is that it is dual battery pack. I have a crapload of standard batteries.it is a great buggy from what I read though.

That's what I ended up doing. Worked great. Seen your track too. One of the locals asked me if I knew you. You are a popular man :-)

Soooo, not really a lot of nitro options because nitro is a little impractical for the island unless you are strictly a basher. But I in no way advocate nitro anyway. It is an expensive, time consuming, always brokers, always tuning side of RC. But that is wholly my opinion. Electric cost about the same to get into but you run into a lot less problems. I prefer to drive versus work on my stuff.

Currently there is only one shop on island for earthbound RC. That is RC Siro in Ginowan. Fastest way is by expressway. Plug this into google maps app:
Ginowan City, Okinawa Ganeko 3-22-1
The iPhone map is crap and will not take you to the right place. He sells mostly onroad electric but dabbles in offroad.
I suggest beating around rcmart.com or hobbyking.com to look for some intro cars and trucks. You can also get some nice stuff in the for sale section on this forum. But you have to know the value cause some people overprice their junk and some people offload on the cheap. I also love Amain.com and towerhobbies.com but you can't get those smoking china prices like the other two sites.

I suggest looking into 1/10 electric buggies because Iggy is getting a track built right now. Also look into the drift circuit if that is your thing. The just opened up a track for that as well.
If you are committed to nitro, Rc Siro does host onroad nitro races up at murasaki mura in yomiton (up past Torii Station). That's about the best info I can give you. I am still a newb compared to some of the guys on here. They may be able to give you better nitro info. Iggyrigged is pretty much resident area expert on all things RC, the rest of us have our quirks (I.e. electric snob :-)

Hope this helps and hope to see you at the track

We are working on the new track in Awase again on Saturday the 25th @ 10AM. Any help is greatly appreciated. If we get this in, the track will be very close to done.

Last Saturday we layed out dirt for all the jumps, and raked the surface in prep for tamping.

Looks like the offroad track is going to have a set 500yen per day price, payable inside at the front desk. Races may be different.

The drift track is seperate and will have an annual fee of 3000 yen, then half day fee of 500yen and full day fee of 1000yen. I am in Iwakuni now, and will lock down a better/verify translation when I get back.
