Wow, that's a really nice track. Must be a horsepower intensive track. I don't see any slow parts. I'd like to give it a try sometime. Hopefully, I'll be able to go next summer for a week or so before China.

Very fast. Which is why I blew my motor. It's not accurate to temp your motor after 3-5 laps since it just gets hotter and hotter. There are at least 4 parts including the straight I go full throttle and that heats up the motor fast.

Look at the size of that track, it's 50% larger than Revelation, yet the track record is 14 seconds flat for 1/10 seden. That tells you how fast it is.

Were you running that JP? We all had a feeling that motor was going to go on you. It idles nasty. Let me guess, the connecting rod went, right? My motor sounded a lotlike yours before it threw the rod.

Not the con rod, but the plug was blown (as in the filments were physically blown to pieces) and the threads for the plug are all messed up. I have yet to open it up to assess the damages but I think it's as good as gone.

The Japanese mugen drivers Fukuda and Hanada took 1-2 in the A. Dino made the B but I did not even though there was only one second difference between our qualifying time. However, since some of the guys left without running the main I was pushed up to the final spot of the B. During the race it rained a bit and it messed everyone up. Lap times dropped to about 30 seconds and everyone was spinning. However the track dried up around the 10 minute mark and we were going fast. I came up from last place and a lap down to 4th and was approaching Dino who was at 3rd at the moment when my motor gave at the 20 minute mark. Dino went on and won 2nd at the end of 30 minutes.

I hope you all will make it again for the next invitational event. I hear silverstone is going to re-pave the surface and change the layout so I am sure another race will be coming again soon.
Yeah~Nice to meet Ricky and other Philippine drivers. You are all fast drivers. Just have a little unlucky....

I don't think he can read Chinese
1/10 Qualify
1/10 A main Final
1/10 B main final
1/10 C main final
(Please read it with Big5 character)
There are only A,B,C finals due to time control. Only 1/2 people have final qualifications. So every racer who has final qualification are all very fast!
