(apologize for not posting this any sooner...)

ahh… r/c heaven… it’s nice to be back… unfortunately it was more business than pleasure…

for those who missed out the first time, or for those wondering what i’m talking about… check out this thread…

http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showth...t=r%2Fc+heaven

(i highly recommend reading it…)

now back on topic… does anybody know where in the world, you could see the most cars that served as inspiration for the kyosho autoscale bodies? if you guessed h.k. you’re probably right… as i don’t know of anyplace that you could see them within close proximity of each other…

to give you an example… i was able to see a nissan skyline, a toyota altezza (in front of the nissan)…

in spite of the 4days 3nights… plus the unintended extra 2days 2nights stay (argh.. mumble, gripe, grumble… extra hotel charges… mumble, grumble, gripe… rebooking charges) i had very little time to go around the r/c shops… and my apologies guys… not much pictures… around the shops

here’s one interesting pic for trueno fans… an updated trueno…

the track is egr… which I was able to go to last time… but this was at a new location… they had to move due to the escalating building rental rates…. unfortunately they had to close down… once again due to rental rates…i heard though they've opened once again and this time they are planning to have another track which will allow 1/18 scale cars (micro's / x-18's and mini-t's)…

shop pics... cool cars eh?

overall the r/c shops are still there... but unfortunately some tracks had to shut down...

during my last visit in 2002, there were about 5 tracks compared to about 2 during my last visit...

so i guess you can say that the mini-z business in h.k. kinda slowed down... but if it did, it didn't show since most of the shops i visited pretty much have most of the mini-z parts in stock...

(kinda ironic) so i just guess that putting up a track in h.k. is kinda hard...

well it was fun while it lasted…hopefully next time I go… will have more time on my hands… and be there actually to do some time on the track...
