You can visit Tai Sing Corporation (Pte) Ltd at North Bridge Road (next to Sultan Mosque). They carry both battery and gasoline powered RC drift cars.

I used to play during my secondary and JC years, but have long retired from the RC scene. My last car was a Schumacher.

A good place to start is Hobby Link at Far East Plaza.
The owner Sam Cheng races & wins a lot. He's a nice guy & being very hands on, is able to give sound advise. http://www.hobbylink.com.sg/

Tai Sing is a good place too. Used to frequent that place almost every weekday afternoon to test out RC car modifications during my secondary school days (many many years ago)

Ever since I retired 17 years ago, Sam had been winning races. Otherwise he has no chance against me..... ;)

Not really lah, Sam is good especially in on-road racing. I was a off-road racer.

Sam is a tough fighter in A-Main.

During the late 80s, he had a shop at Far East Shopping Centre, and now at Far East Plaza.

My 2WD was a Kyosho Ultima with Trinity Monster motor.

By the way, I was with Team Trinity last time.

kyosho ultima is a short wheel base 2wd , in the ultima series there are 1 or 2 other ultima something with a longer wheel base right , i love kyosho buggy like optima series and use to own 1 but during those days it not as tough as yokomo on build alot of parts very ez to break esp in AMK off road track in another hand cats work well due to the rubber band thingy i think it call crash back system or something :)

Mine was modified with long wheel base using Trinity carbon-fiber/composite chassis.

That's why I switched from an Kyosho Optima Mid (long wheel base) to a Schumacher Cat XL.

I live in Ang Mo Kio, so I used to play at the off-road track there very often.

Oh... Were you that young punk who had a mid-air collision with a Tamiya, I think it was a Boomerang or Big Wig?

Anyway, it was a well-known accident then in AMK. The Boomerang was crippled after that. The owner upgraded to a Team Associated RC10 after that.

Very long history liao..... :bsmilie:
