Unhappy Touring Car racing class

Sorry guys seems too much threads cannot find my inquiry.

I juz move to a country were I am still learning there language.
The track is quite far away from where I am staying.
I just bought a Yokomo BD9 which have a 13.5T motor.
I wanna join the race to spend some relaxation during my day-off.
But seems I still dont understand what is the race category and requirement I have to comply.

May I ask if soemone can share some info about what limitation or set-up my ESC, motor, Body, battery, etc...

Thank you in advance...

Best regards
Michael

Perhaps you should be more specific like what country, what city, what club, etc.

I would perhaps contact the track you will be racing at for that info.

If itís just a standard touring class then hereís what I would assume:

190mm tc body (Protoform turismo, type S)

non treaded touring tires (volante, team powers, rush Solaris)

The rest will be determined by the club.

The TITC is an International race held in Bangkok every year that draws a lot of top racers from around the world, so yeah, if youíve ever seen video of the races and the crowds that show up to watch, Iíd say itís a pretty popular hobby there.

Overall, Iíd say that thereís no harm in visiting the track as a spectator, and asking if anyone can speak your language. As for specs, I would imagine that IFMAR/FEMCA rules are followed (I assume that Thailand is associated with FEMCA?)... If thatís the case, you will probably want to make sure that your ESC is in blinky mode (0-timing), and just use IFMAR/FEMCA rules as a guideline for the Stock 13.5 class.

I hardly believe Chinese would be helpful in Thailand
