Central RC, a large importer, shop and track owner in Japan, have released pictures (and setupsheet) of the Serpent 960 of their top driver Sukenari Sahasi. The car is the one that Sahasi will use in next weeks Japanese 1/8th scale Nationals. As you can see from the pictures the car has been extensively softened with modifications to the car that allow it to flex more than that of the standard 960. The car has also been lightened as is the norm with any top driver trying to extract the miliseconds from their car.
The JMRCA run Japanese 1/12th scale Nationals are being held this weekend.

We will report on this results of this event as we get them.

Yesterday we reported on the TORC series from Bedworth, in which we noted that the F2 class had been taken by Elliot Harper. Well the overall TORC series championship went to Ian Whittingham who, driving a Grainger special edition Yokomo, took the title for a second year running.
He was already uncatchable after the Stafford round in August, with three rounds still to go. Ian finished the season with another strong performance taking TQ and overall second place at the Bedworth meeting.
Because my Danish is worse than non existent, i can’t quite tell you what the guys over at RaceRC.dk are writing about. But what i can tell you is that they have some more close up pictures of Jonas KÃ¦rup’s Corally RDX prototype chassis. We showed you pictures of the proto RDX from the Team Orion speed weekend that some enthusiastic snappers managed to get, but these show more detail.
You can view the photos from of the RDX prototype here.
