Xray Worlds Warm-Up Report

Xray reports – “The 2010 1/8 buggy World Championships are to be held in Thailand at the Pattaya PRC track. The track is a simply awesome, superb facility. I have not been to many 1/8 off-road races around the world, but I think it would be difficult to make a much higher level R/C track. Of note were the exceptionally nice pits (LCD screens to follow the race), you could order all kinds of food from your pit table, and there was transportation between the hotel and track every day. If you missed something, the track crew could be counted on to get it sorted out for you. The track was very challenging and almost each corner is angled to make it very difficult, as you needed to arrive at each corner with perfect speed otherwise you pushed out BAD and lost a lot of momentum. There were also a good mount of jumps and all kinds of wierd hills on the track with a long uphill straight. The surface was also very different from what I have seen before; they used oil on the track to keep the dust down… but that also made it pretty slippery in some areas.” Read More…
