I guess no one in Taiwan that has it goes on this forum? I do see some at the track though.

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.
Cool....I wont mind racing but not now, I still need more time on my car and which setup works. Im having traction roll at the moment.

Which body are you running? Try the Alfa. Also, try increase the rear camber.

The last time I ran I used the older Stratus which I just threw away. Im going to try my newer Stratus 2.1 this weekend hopefully and I also have a Mazda 6 painted and ready. Will test the car out with the Stratus first. Well I think the reason I was getting traction roll was I went there on Saturday which was one day before race day and there were alot of people there which made the track very sticky due to nitro fuel. They told me it was mainly because of the nitro on the track. Will see next time I go. I also changed too many things at one time so I couldnt really find the right setting. Im going to start over and go back to default settings, then change one thing at a time.

Maybe it does work better but I personally dont like the looks of the Alfa. BTW do they have the Mazda 6 body in stock at Wanban in Peitou? I got my body at speedtech.com.tw for 380NT$ same price as other bodies.

Is R40 a popular TC in Taipei area??? I don't really want to bring something back and hard to find parts. I heard mostly mugen and serpert runs at wanban? I'll definitely go there since it's pretty close to where I live. I heard there's fees you gotta pay to race. How much NT? also how much is a freaking novarossi there????

Im sure there ar R40 parts, just need to find out who sells it. I saw a group of guys who were at Wanban praticing the day before the race and all I can say is that they were fast. They run together and chase each other and wait for other R40's whos behind on the track so they can practice racing side by side. Usually people just do their own laps So I think you should bring it back. On race day top 1st and 2nd were 710's. Not much 710's around but im glad to see them win. There are alot of shops listed in the magazines so do some search when you get here. Here is a link to the magazine...if you can read chinese maybe you can see if there are any links to shops. I cant read Chinese so maybe you can have a friend help out if your as lost as me. http://rctech.com.tw/

Here is a HPI ad I saw on the magazine. Im sure its a distributors number. (02)8675-3123 good luck
