P.Y.Tang, H-Energy and ZTW TQ'ed at Batu Pahat Whatever Solution RC Challenge 2010 (May 2, 2010)
During the Labour Day weekend, Whatever Solution hosted their first RC race in Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia. It was a challenging track indeed as the surface is very rough causing high wear rates on the tires, and the most unforgiving track to the chassis due to bumpy long straights. Ride height had to be raised to 6mm to 8mm in some of the drivers. An increased in ride height would hurt the balance of the car but it would be a compromise to finish top in the race. In the Qualifying Round 3 P.Y.Tang secured his TQ spot by topping the rest with the only "would be 22 lappers" with 21 laps 4:55 as he did not pass the finish line due to some miscommunication with the race director at the end of the heat. The next contender qualified at 21 laps 5:01. In the Finals, P.Y.Tang managed only to finished 3rd overall as partly due to worn out tires which he used only one set of Sorex 40R for the entire race. P.Y.Tang's Tamiya TRF416X was powered by the reliable ZTW 120A ESC and H-Energy 5000Mah 35C.
