WOW!! this hobby is still alive.
Still remember as a kid, i used play at Dobhy Ghaut MRT and came in 2nd once at the old Plaza Singapura when Yaohan was still around. Now upgraded to RC liaoz..

so what is the popular chassis and cover now? motor? are the race rules closed or open?

eager to make a comeback and have fun

Woo hoo, you from my era one...

Yesh.. Mini 4wd had evolved alot... Now the motor is midship mounted, and the technology used, its very much like the RCs..



The popular Chassis ppl using now will be the pro chassis... and i guess for old school guys ,you will like the Avante MK II.. also the motor, its now the hyperdash pro ..( sounds so nostalgic )

For racer who played before, the new Pro chassis is kind of heavy actually.. Overall, the whole chassis look complicated, however the weight balancing for it is pretty good.. But I still see many people using older chassis such as; super1, zero, TZ, FM..

so what do you recommended? making holes on the chassis to look like a swiss cheese? hehehe

Regarding the rules.. are they open or closed? If following the Tamiya RC races, pretty much closed as they only allow Tamiya hop ups and hand out tires/motor/batteries..
