Today you were run by others. Tomorrow you'd be able to run into their rockets. I killed some GP with my fragile TC3. Real fun.
you need to meet one FAST NTC3 at PYC with your EP TC3 !!

we have 3 outdoor tracks right now.
ACO is big and suitable for 1/8 onroad but you can run your 1/10 EP or GP there. It is in the country side of HK.
PYC is in sub-urban area and is suitable for 1/10 TC and 1/12 onroad.
TRC is in the urban area and is the most crowded track for 1/10 TC and 1/12 onroad.

Not until they re-arrange the track first.

Are either PYC or TRC carpet tracks? Any different guidelines I'll need to know to run there?

No guidelines...run what you bring....just make sure it is fast!!

If you are running EP you may have a problem with your power supply......we are 220V in HKG...

Hmm, the 220 will give me problems... might be easier to just buy a power supply over there and then sell it on eBay (or at the track if I'm lucky enough) after I get my raceday out of it.

So nobody cares much what the weight of the car is?

you can get one switchable 110-220 power supply here and you may still use it when you back home.

besides, you can borrow a traditional heavy power supply from the track operator.

Is it any wonder i am still loyal to Tamiya after all these years...?(brief flirtations with HPI and Yokomo notwithstanding...)

if you win a club race in even smallest town in us, you can win the worlds already.

i can call it "over confident", or "too naive" ...

go home and teach themselves world map first.
maybe they cant... it would put too much of a strain for them
