Actually the foam is stuck on the Shell and not the pipe. Didn't made any different to the engine temp at all But it sure help to protect my pipe.

Kingcrab: Don't be frustrated! I'm sure you will have better result next time!! Did you have difficulties in choosing tires when running in Yataba Arena??

dont remeber to buy yourself some 1500 mah Sony nimh AA cells for your TX. it is the best AA nimh cell i have ever used. you can get those in hong kong but the price in Japan is much cheaper.

besure you have enough cash (yen) for RC stuff as you will need to pay 5% surcharge for credit card.

Do you have any idea where to go for RC staff? If you dont, I have a map for you.

Manticore: I see... Thanks! I think I will shop around at "Autumn Leaf" station (really don't know its English Name)... Is it ok??

Minto: Thanks! Honestly, if those shops in Japan don't have any discounts, I still think it will be cheaper to shop in HK!!

Yap. That shop is 10 min walk from the station. It's on the 2/F or 3/F without any banner or indication. So pay attention. Don't get kit. Parts are far cheaper than from HK. I remember that when I visited there last year, Keyence Zero was selling at around HK$1500 while the Mongkok price is above $2000. Of course, that difference varies with the currency. Have a nice trip.

Fai: The big race is HK International GrandPrix. Will be held on 14-16 Dec at Sha Tsui Rd. If you want to join, you better do so now as there won't be too many places left. Go to your familiar hobby shop to see if they can help you join. I just joined yesterday.
How long will your Japan trip be? Hope you get what you want and enjoy your trip. If I think of anything I want you to help me get, I'll called you!!!

yes that is the district, but there is only one shop with 30% off on all item, the rest of them are either 10% or 20% off

Diva/Manticore: Thanks! As I go by myself, I think I will have enough time to shop around at that district!!

Mars: I'm sure I'll join either today or tomorrow... you know, I miss this last year and I don't want to miss this time! But another problem is that will our boss let us run the qualifies?? Really need to think of some excuse...
I'll be back on next next Monday.
