Ai Yah! youre not kidding! when i got on the plane for HK, i was right on my allocated baggage weight limit. When i left for Manila, I was 10 kilos overloaded!! Had to pay something like HK$200 in weight penalties... the handout batteries and my shopping did me in... hehehe. Next time i go to HK, i'm bringing only a backpack for my clothes so i can buy some more stuff without going overboard on the weight...

F-1- Red/Yellow Ferrari with Wolverine on the nose?

GT-1-Red/Yellow/Orange Modena with spiderman?

Tommi, I also hope our racers can get onto the podium during the Tamiya WC. I know they are busy preparing for the race. Getting parts, building new cars. I think they won't let us down!
I found your Evo4 in a photo. But I can't see you name because I only have a front shot

Thanks dtm for introducing my car

Nipple, I heard that the GTR body is more stable though I haven't try one myself. As you GTR have been attacked by Nicholas, it might be time for you to put on a 360

I dont think your boys will let us down... glad you saw my car. i think i was the only Evo4 in the whole lot. kinda like the Lebanese dude Antoine. he was the only one in a Focus... By the way, i'm curious, when did your Tamiya organizer allowed the Lexan Rear wing in Rally class? when we were running in rally class in manila, we were using the stock wings... we got caught out by that change... do not worry, that wasnt a complaint, just a question... no offense bro...

I tried a few other cars....but I'm still back on the Xray........... right now I doing some experiements with batteries.....can't tell you exactly yet.......I first need to clear out MK of it's stock before I let the cat out of the bag!!!

TS: Do you think it's a little bit heavy? An quantum weighs only 17.5g with nearly the same price!

Hi Fai...Long time no see. Hang out in Kai Tak more?
Actually, If you don't "Fat How" and goes for the looks of the options, the original car (Plus the front oneway) is good enough for us "Sports" drivers. I (we) brought alot of options but we more or less run the same parts and setting of the original car. AND the parts last

I saw the paint schemes of your team, really cool! must be a lot of work in doing that kind of graphic
The big mac car is also really nice
We were given the list of authorized parts a week before the race. I guess the racers found out the change at that time.

The guy who painted those cars used to paint Tamiya Mini 4WD's This guy's good. Charges around HK$ 200 for the service. It's almost a crime to scratch one of his works...
By the way, the big mac car belongs to the lebanese driver i think...
as for the wing rule, i knew we were a bit behind... but no worries, it teaches us to be better prepared for next year...

CE4- gave up..........TB Evo 2- gave up!!!!

wanted to buy the Atlas Si....but getting parts appears to be a real problem...so I forgot about that. I won't get the Baracuda because the emblem looks too much like the Brietling logo........copy watch!!!!!
