I don't know about the Marina Mall, but for Yuan Ching, you will need to take an MRT down to Lake Side station. From there, cross the overhead bridge and take bus number 154, it will take you about 5 minutes, you will need to stop when you see a MacDonalds to your right. The track is just infront of the macdonalds.

An alternate bus is 240, it stops at the same place, but travels much longer (10 mins?) as it winds around inside the housing estate.

OTOH, yuan ching track now "features" concrete uh, blocks, something to hold the track together at the corners where ppl frequently bump into. One bad crash heheh :P

Alternatively there's also a track at Yishun, next to the Town Centre...But be prepared, the concrete barriers are HIGH!! The whole idea of the track by the owner/s: "Hopefully you'll break a couple of expensive parts and replace them at my shop!"
There is a hobby shop near the track by the way... Anyway the shop has nothing to offer even if you are willing to pay!

thanks for the info.

Oner more thing, it seems Pro3 is not popular in sg. Do you guys know where to get the spare parts? Phone number please if you have them....thxs.

I wonder if i could find products by square racing in sg? Anyone knows?

What is the best time to visit the above tracks usually? Are there many ppl practicing? Do they open till night?

Hmm no offense to Pro 3 lovers (I know got quite a few) but this is an observation on my part. Just compare price of say TA04R(S$350 approx) VS Pro 3 (S$260 approx), Pro 3 in stock form lacks stuff like universals, carbon stuff, alum shocks etc. (I could be mistaken).

Buy those and price skyrockets. Plus, just by seeing what hara is using to what the stock pro 3 looks like @ Zoom RCM, whoa, world of difference.

Zoom RCM is near Chinese Garden MRT, local distributor. 5657560.

Dunno about others, but the Yuan Ching track is open 24x7, except during races.

yup, i agree with you re Pro3. You need to hop it up like a totally different car to be competitive.........the other racers here say the same thing......but then having the same brand cars all over is not fun at all........

i'll try zoom rc when i am there. Hopefully they have the parts that i need.

Are the new Sanyo 3000HV available in sg right now? What is the market price?

How abt SMH? I heard that the asian batches are not the top batt. Is this true?

H4CSPro3,

I will have the HVs ready soon if you are interested. SMHs over here are similiar to those in states in terms of performance.
