Barry......first of all, after the TC4 win at the US Reedy race, you have to do it 2 in a row for the oversea REEDY race.......and the BELT DRIVE is better talk must need a STOP here....LOL.
Anyhow....Diamond Hill - Hollywood Plaza is what the shopping mall called........my folks are actually living right above the mall, so if I am in HK now, I can pit in my own home and race when the time is up....and I can even take a nap in between the heats in my own bed....
Barry, Masami and HARA does have a hugh advantage over there (local support team from HK)........but afterall, they are all human, only the RACE can tell whos the fastest...

Also, please stop by HKRCMODEL's shop and talk to Terence, super nice guy, and if you cannot find the parts that you need at his shop, you will not find it anywhere else in HK, not to mention, his store location, Kwan Wah Street, have more then 20 RC shops within 1/4 miles of walking distance......it is probably the highest density RC shop ratio in the whole world...

Race info is here...

http://www.waigohobby.com/race/2005reedy/info-e.html

Plaza info is here...

http://www.plazahollywood.com.hk/web/e/event/event.htm

Please take some pictures as well..................I hope the HK REEDY RACE do have a good looking touphy gal like Courtney Day in USA....

Picture from last year, by HKRCMODEL Terrence......
