Just trying out some shots. Not easy man. These buggers go at 80+ kph and they are small so trying to snap them is a real challenge.

Try shooting from a lower angle, crop down the image if necessary to achieve a tighter crop for a more focused image. Use slower shutter speeds and panning techniques to give a sensation of speed from blurred background as well as spinning wheels.

What do you mean childhood days...I still have not outgrown my childhood haha. When I was young I can only look at these things. Only now can I afford it.

Yes it is at East Coast. It is a membership track. You can join as a member at Marine Parade CC. It is meant for on-road cars only. Buggy will not be suitable. 1/8 on-road is moest suitable as it is a very fast track. BTW there will be a buggy race in JB on 18th July. I plan to go and shoot some pics if I can make it on that day. Some people play their buggy cars at Tampines and it seems quite fun to watch.

Hey Iceman27, I will try to make it as I have missed the past 2 events :cry:. I want to get some off-road shots. I would also like to support CS members in the race. Good Luck Guys!

Hmmm...Before i start, i need a new glow plug, the cold filament ones by novarossi and also a new starter battery. My 12volt batt has completed its full charge cycle and can no longer be charged again...Also, need some fine tuning for the engine. I don't know why but its always shutting off when the fuel has half a tank left... :dunno: :dunno:
