use to be hot, now no idea leh...there're groups but dun think it's very active-otherwise this thread should be flooded. I know some tried to drift with micro not sure where.
Expo is one MRT stop away from Changi. About the race, check with Taising at North Bridge Rd for details. Hope this helps abit

Default I got one of those too

I got a HPI micro RS4 and put a mamba 6800 in it right away. I also put the stock 9 tooth pinion. I borrowed the reciever from one of my losi mini baja's and broke both front dogbones in about 30 seconds. I was running on the rough street in front of my house. oops.
I hust got a hi-tec 81 mg servo for the front. the last steering servo broke because the arm was hitting the chassis. I want to put this one in right because it is a very nice servo. I got the hpi servo saver and there is no way for it to interface with the steering control arm. I don't want to use the stock servo arm if it is going to break my servo again.

could I see some photos of what you guys did to set up yours?

Thank you!

Hahaha...rainy Sunday nothing to do at home. Also due to i saw it on sale in Ebay. Tempted to get one, i did'nt know it's a real out of time 'thing' for the Micro and Mini. Is there any place still sells this or the 1/18th?

Frankly, these small little monsters really can cheer one up in a rainy day like today. It can be run at home. What is the normal selling price of these nice mini truggies in those days? They look sophiscated too. Brushless system with LiPO batt setup.

Seriously, these toys or i call it treasure to me worth keeping for the next gen to see. Maybe by then the kids need nothing from these nostalgic gadgets. But they leaves a hard imprint to me.

I bought a Tamiya 4WD Jr. for my son and after sometime of playing he said he dun want it cos he dun like it. The 4WD was diff to come by when i was young (home not rich enough for such toy). Now they simply disregards...aiyoh..

Actually HPI micro not really suitable for home play, its too big and when modded, its freaking fast, now brushless n lipo is so much cheaper compared to last time, i reckon another 200 will make it a land rocket

U sound like someone who'll really treasure vintage rc

Yes, i am. Caught by you huh. I like to collect those items that i feel worth keeping when other ppl think it's 'old gabage' Rarity is the key of collectors items. When all throw and left you alone keeping it and when time passes by...your 'old garbage' is someone's long for treasure.

My childhood is not rich, now also but slightly better la.. I dun need my parent support ma But need to support my own family la.... Then i can only drool and envy what ppl have and knowing my family cannot afford that 5-600 dollar for my Tamiya, i only can buy the Annual Guidebook and appreciate my dream there. So now if i can, i try to catch up my lost and perhaps let my son to feel it before all gone too soon.

Where can i get these Micros or Xray M18Ts with good pricing, i dun mind used item... saw some US ppl selling but kind or too over budget for me. The shippment is way non justifiable for the whole item.

Thank for tracking me down...

Heya, if I'm not wrong, Tai Sing still sells some HPI Micro RS4 kits. Also, I think they may have recently replenished their stock of spare parts.

And yeah, these micro monsters are not meant for indoors. With a 45T, they can hit 40km/hr. With a brushless,.... I heard they can hit almost 90km/hr.

I'm still playing with mine. Even bought a spare kit for spare parts. Nice to bash around a basketball court or the top level of a multi-storey carpark.

Guys, Caster may have produce the toughest 1:18 in the market. Check out attached pictures. (6061 Al for 80% of the kit with brushless motor).
