You're welcome! I'm sure you can get many of them if you got a Japanese RC magazine nearby!

Good idea Fai.
I have had a look at the web sites above, but I havenít had much luck (again ). I'm after a Mugen MST-1. Unfortunately none of them list it in their catalogs. It looks like the off road market is not so popular, however their prices are really good. I think I'll get a radio & servos, and most likely a starter box.

Also I've noticed that off road is not so popular in HK either.

Oh boy, I almost fall over my seat when I read "shopping in Japan bugĒ it reminded me of Maxwell Smart from Control. (I hope you guys know what I am talking about)
The old buy it cause it's cheap trick

LOL 100% correct.

Well, I started with MX bikes, then Go-Karts, and now RC (soon), so Iím getting cheaper and cheaper (must pay the house off)

Fortunately...or unfortunately....we do not get Maxell in HKG....but I know what you mean!

You want to be careful about RC cars being cheap! I would hate to add up everything I have spent on RC cars.........I can probably buy a couple of decent 1:1 cars for the price!!

Hey guys, one question.

If you were to get a new 1/10 TC, what would you pick?

Diva: It's really difficult to answer... SD is 'hit' but I don't like Waigo too much, Surikarn's EvoIII should be good but don't want to get into the field of Tamiya... Xray should be good also but too many people running them (or had run them) lar... I really want to have a Losi, but the most important point is that our dear Captain DTM told me not to buy Ah!


Pro4 seems Ok, according to its CAD drawings, but later I found it has 'too many plastic'...
I heard rumors that Asso. will have its new car next year... maybe we can wait!?

I remember some one said Losi XXXS is a very durable car.

Next year? I'd better wash my hands now.

I'm thinking about the Surikarn's TB. But have to observe to see if the bevel gear problem still exist. I don't want to be white mouse.

Ummmmmm, I think I'll get back to GP for a while.

Diva: I don't know whether the Surikarn edition will have its 'bevel gear problem' solved... But I think the next car that will always strip its bevel gear is the Pro4!!

So, how about your MY02 once again, have it been run yet??

The MY02 is very good. I ran it on last Sunday with 23T. It's my first time to run stock. Amazing speed with RR motor. But as my usual practice, it has a new home now. Next target may be G+/XRay/Surikarn TB.

BTW, my 3rd NTC3 is ready.
