Happy Holidays too Sure, just let me know when you are coming over next year. November is a good month to visit, there's alot of RC Racing going on in those months plus the new tracks around Manila, that will be great!

I drove the R2 stock besides alloy shaft holders, and was very competitive with it, but if you do want the ultimate car, pick up the Speedtech US special version...

I actually think that the R3 will do everything the Xenon car can, it uses a stiffer carbon fiber material, and definately a stronger drivetrain...

that would be great! and more fun for me... but with only 2 weeks of vaca a year might be difficult to get away from my wife's plan during the thanksgiving holidays. trying to convince her to go without me...since I don't have family out there anymore. and I could go about with you and Dan. or maybe meet my wife somewhere in Asia before heading back the US. We'll see what happens next year....

I'd really like to go back to HK, I've even started chatting in the HK thread just to figure out a little bit about the tracks back there. The only problem I really forsee is that they have 220v power.

Yea..want to go visit HK too... Terence from RcModel and Andy from HobbyMania asked me to drop by there shops and they'll take me around to the varius tracks and site in HK.

for 220v...I guess we'll have to car some sort of voltage transformer...but I think my Integy/Indi transformer is dual voltage

Manticore and DTM have told me the tracks to visit, so I know where I want to go

I wonder how hard it would be to find a voltage transformer, and what they would cost...

The plastic ones are really bad, you can hear the bevel and diff gear slip during hard cornering. This not only protects the Spur gear but the drivetrains gears aswell. Whether it's an R2 or the new R3 Just my .02cents


Wow you must have much higher grip tracks than here in Scotland although thats not hard
They are nice in any class of racing, makes the drive train rock solid with the optional and R3 motor mounts
