Fukuda is using Ninja 1/10 and JP for 1/8. Surprise he chose DNA over 3.1 for the body.

New photos uploaded from the Final

http://www.flickr.com/photos/maverick-racing/

The final run under wet condition so track was slippery. Everyone were trying to find the best tyres ( some had rain tyres) some use whatever method possible to get more grip from the tires. So funny, check out the photo to see what drivers do to their tires.

Fukuda decided not to race because of wet track.
1/8, I won the race. by few laps because I had the right tires. Sorry winning is winning
Using Velox and Special prepared ATS tyres.
Titan Blitz New 1/8 body ( watch out this new body)
Nitro X Fuel


1/10, it was heavy rain so only 2 driver left On the track when organiser decided to stop. Hong Kong driver Alan yau won.
Using Mugen JP engine ( not sure his tyres but it is one of those Rain tyres)

Can you post the adress of the track? If you have information on other tracks in Shanghai area, especially offroad 1:8, I would appreciate information on that to.

Reason is simple. Since oktober I life ca 40% of my time in Shanghai. I am involved on advice and helping Chinese based companies and goverment institures out on starting up R&D programms (horticulture and biotech engineering). I would definitely like to keep up my driving skills in Shanghai to (in fact at the moment right now I am in Shanghai, will return to NL for newyear and be back end januar). I am hooked on 1:8 offroad but so far I did not find an offroad track in Shanghai. Would run onroad 1:8 rallygame if there is nothing else.
In Guangzhou where I stayd a few days there was a good track and race at the moment I was there. I did hear of this a few days after the race-event. Some drivers I know from joining the same Europe race scene where over for that race (drivers of the Ishima racing team). It is pitty I did not knew of that race. I would have joined for sure to measure up with and getting acquanted with chinese drivers. Will stay on parttime living in China for at least 3 years.

Here is the Address in Chinese, may be cut and paste give to Taxi driver.
上海TRS赛车场(上海市沪青平公路1928号)

it is just outside a Bus station and almost opposite to large shopping Mall (carrefour and star buck...etc..)

I dont know about Off road track in Shanghai yet but you never Know. RC is picking up in China. A new Track could appear anytime. Currently there is 2 new On road in Shanghai both are very high standard. In fact, TRS just finished in Sept 2008.
