Hi,

You sure do have a lot to ask don't you?
There're a few race tracks; Jurong, East Coast, etc, etc. Try search some threads already mention abt them. Some even have location map.
Every week have race (official or non), monthly also.
Competition....mostly same faces at the podium...

cheers.

What can you learn from playing Counterstrike?? Just how to shoot ppl with your mouse... gee whiz. Try putting that on your CV when you look for job.

At least RC can teach you about mechanicals, physics, repair/diagnosis, design, painting, attention to detail etc etc. Lots of skills for future should you decide to go crazy on real-size cars.

a. got 1 at yishun, 1 at marina, 1 at yuan ching(small one), and a few more i really not sure.
b. think 1/10 onroad is most popular. not sure about offroad. for me, i play purely for fun.
c. never been to 1, can't tell.
d. probably around one a month in singapore or more?
e. usually there are 2 metal clamps which envelope the disc. on braking, the 2 metal clamps compress the disc which causes increased friction and stops the disc.
f. its usually a centrifugal clutch. at low rpms, there is a spring inside to hold the clutch tightly towards the centre. at higher rpms, the centrifugal force generated by the moving engine will exceed that of the spring causing outward movement of the clutch, which will then contact the clutchbell. again, friction will cause movement.
g. something to do with a one-way differential and the 2nd gear kicking in at a certain rotation speed. i haven't figured that one out yet.
h. i'm not sure, i don't race. but you can go to swan models at orchard point, the lady is very nice and won't con you.
i. should be fine. its interchangeable.

hey man, good luck with the hobby, i got exams coming, don't have the time to play like you!
