RACE REPORT: Speed City R/C Drift Challenge 2011

RACE REPORT: Speed City R/C Drift Challenge 2011

Date: 26-27 March

in conjunction of FXOPEN DRIFT SERIES FINAL


The track layout and rough surfaces. Need to adjust car setup and beef up the responses from the car. I tried my normal car setup with shock oil F900 R300 it was too hard, even tried using no shock oils!- for the sake of trying... and went for qualifications. As always the combo of wrong traction setup + mad driving will not score the day.


Went back early to sleep and setup the car as plan. I ended using 300 all up and improve the overal weight transfer of my TC-D. It was an instant win. I was satisfied with the the second day setup and will be happy no matter what will be the result. :)

Photobucket The participants on the race day. I love the Cefiro A31 body, it will not be used as my daily.

I am doing another S13 just for the sake of daily use and wall scraping. :)

I hate Haidi and Azhar Hobby haven for the tyres marking with the red and yellow colour! to make it worst, they insist on the OUTSIDE marking! ARGH!!! Hate you both! :) Photobucket Handsome drifters... I wish Haidi, Azhar, Rulwan and Black take pictures with us as well.

If Jane is the lady 1:1 drifter, there is only one lady drifter Miss Memen in the 1:10 scene. Photobucket The judge, Mr. Black & Mr Rulwan Photobucket The important couples that make it happen, Azharina and Haidiana! Thank you guys & Hobby Haven for orgnizing such a good event. We want more!


I told Haidi that the trophy colour (gold & blue) was funny. He said it was just to be different.


Notice the hampers? It was a good additional prize changes. We notice the organizer efforts! Photobucket

I have nothing to say about this pic except for the rims markings. I wont say it again... Photobucket
