hey guys,

so you think it's worth it to sell my brand new R40 for a MTX-3? wanban is very close to my house and I heard only mugen and serpert parts there. What do you all think? What kind of engines do peeps run there?

Jeffrey,

Did you get your engine at Wanban this weekend? Did you bring your car to Taiwan this time to run it?

Yeah, I got a NSR12 this weekend and they broke it in for me. That was a nice service as I hate the whole breaking-in process.

I am actually building another FW-05R just for Taiwan. The car is 80% done and hopefully I will be able to run it this weekend. I think there is a race in Taoyuan next week--are you going?

Didnt know about the race in Taoyuan. I think my schedule will be busy this weekend so im not sure. SInce my skills is not good enough to race I dont think I will attend, I rather run my car in Wanban. If it is in fact a big race then im sure alot of Wanban guys will be there to race so that leaves Wanban empty for me to practice. Which day is the race, is it 200mm only or 1/8th as well. Are you racing in Taoyuan? Do you know which day and if its a nice track? I would really like to see how your FW05R runs.

I think it's next weekend (4/11). There should be different class for the race and I think you should attend. I am myself a beginner at nitro TCs but I think actual racing experience is worth many practices. I would just go and have fun anyway.

I will give you a call if I am going to Wan Ban or Tao Yuan this weekend and you can see the car run then.
