The Xray Malaysia Cup for Series 3 was organized by Trust Hobby Racing in Malaysia. With recent resurfacing work on the layout, this track has medium to high traction depending on the time of the day and consider one of the most technical track in Southern Malaysia. Entries up to three mains would battle out for the 1/10 EP Modified Touring Car class to see P.Y.Tang TQ and win the class with his Orca equipped Xray T3.
Qualifying started with many struggling with the morning low traction, but it was P.Y.Tang Xray T3/Orca who set the pace at 24 laps 5:01:137, followed by Jonest at 24 laps 5:10.104, and newcomer E.C.Wee Xray T3/Orca at 23 laps 5:00.755. As the traction got higher coming into noon time, and a reduce amount of tire additive saw P.Y.Tang recording fastest single laptime of 11.777s, with a TQ run on Heat 2 at 25 laps 5:06, 2 seconds off the track record set by Ken Ng of Xray T3/H-Energy. Bernard Lee jumped to 2nd from the grid barely missing 25 lapper at 24 laps 5:01.211 after resolving a loose differential problem on his Xray T3. Jonest in his Tamiya 416X would start 3rd from the grid qualifying 24 laps 5:04.620.

The three leg finals saw some great racing as Bernard Lee and Jonest Wong matching the pace on pole position P.Y.Tang. In the Final A1, P.Y.Tang got off to a good start but was suffering from low traction as there was a delay to the start causing the tires cooling down. Bernard Lee second from the pole started off with sliding sideways but managed to maintain his position. Bernard was able to reel in the front car but as tires warmed out for P.Y.Tang, he was able to pull away and take the win for first leg. In the second leg, it was a more interesting race as top 3 swapped position for a few times. P.Y.Tang and Bernard Lee got off the starting line battling out with Jonest Wong following closely behind in 3rd. Halfway through, P.Y.Tang and Bernard Lee had a slight contact just before the left sweeper, allowing Jonest Wong to pass, but while leading, Jonest was held up by a backmarker. P.Y.Tang retake the lead and went on to take the chequered flag for second leg and the overall win. Jonest Wong took 2nd and James Ki 3rd completed top 3 in second leg. Bernard Lee had to retire after his battery dumped. As P.Y.Tang already secured 1st overall, the podium would still be up for grabs between Bernard Lee, Jonest Wong, James Ki and Jazz CK. At the sound of the tone, P.Y.Tang and Bernard Lee pulled away, while Jonest Wong in 3rd found himself pressuring by 4th position E.C.Wee, and Allister Lim lurking back in 5th looking a way to pass. On fresh rubber, Bernard Lee was able to pass P.Y.Tang at the 1-minute mark. P.Y.Tang regained the lead on lap 7 when Bernard Lee unable to keep his line, but on lap 20, P.Y.Tang had to retire from a stripped spur gear. Allister Lim caught up and took the win for third leg as Bernard Lee was suffering from battery problem and James Ki again finished in top 3 from 10th position.

Round 5 of Quantum Mini-Z Cup was held at Atomic Collective. They have generously sponsored their place for this event. Turnout for this event was pretty decent and in this race we see some new (old) faces.
Stock Class saw some intense racing between series leader Azmi and our guest from Malaysia, Jeff and the new (old) Roy Chong. Roy was about to upset the the top 2 drivers with some very slick driving. Ultimately, TQ goes to Azmi. In the Finals, Jeff found some additional power and manage to take the win for the 1st and 2nd Final. 3rd final went to Azmi and 2nd overall. Roy despite his best efforts manage to settle for 3rd.
Mod Class was another class act. Again in the qualifying, championship leader Jeff was unable to produce the form he has and narrowly lost TQ position to Azmi. In the finals, Azmi showed what true form is about and comfortably took 3 wins in all the Finals. Jeff has nothing to show and scrape for overall 2nd and Fred from Atomic Collective 3rd.
1. Jeff (PN Racing)
2. Azmi (TQ)

Presenting the new Robitronic AVID v2, the top sedan that simply leaves nothing to be desired!
The AVID v2’s completely well-balanced, symmetric chassis layout facilitates careful and precise setup work, while its adjustable flex for both, front and rear end makes it perfectly suitable for touring and drifting.
Large ball diffs and oversized wheel bearings keep service intervals low and durability at the max with an absolute must for the hot modified racing class and intense high-rev drifiting.
Uncompromising lightweight design employing premium quality materials, lowest possible CoG and sufficient room to fit the most popular rc-components are the cornerstones of Robitronic’s new AVID v2.
Look out for the upcoming drift competition debut for the Robitronic Avid v2 at the HPI Drift Challenge 2010 Round 5 of 8 @ Kovan Hub 25th July 2010!
Tom Goh has officially confirmed to run the latest technology of H-Energy LiFe Receiver Pack on his Team Xray NT1. Tom started testing out the H-Energy LiFe 1400Mah Receiver Stick Pack since early this year and is very pleased with the performance of the pack. He stated that the receiver pack is very reliable with long run-time and provides consistent power to the demanding servos. The LiFe pack is the new generation of battery technology which has very low discharge rate compared to NiMh, and is much safer than LiPo. The use of 2S LiFe at 6.4V also eliminates the use of voltage regulator providing some relief for gas car drivers. Tom Goh recent achievements with H-Energy were Podium at Singapore Invitational 2010, 2nd for 1/10th and 3rd for 1/8th, and mutiple TQ, Wins and Podium at Singapore Edam Open Challenge 2010. We wish Tom success in the upcoming races with Team Xray and Team H-Energy!

Ken Ng of H-Energy finished A-Main 6th in ProStock 11.5T class at the Malaysia National Championship EP Round 1 at the Kota Raja Track in Klang, Malaysia just outside of Kuala Lumpur. With a total of 30 entries in the ProStock 11.5T, it was the most popular contested class in Kuala Lumpur. Although having some bad luck with his electronics, Ken Ng managed to qualify into the A-Main and finished at a respectable and hard-fought 6th overall.
Ken Ng uses the H-Energy 5500Mah 50C 7.4V High Performance LiPo to power his Xray T3.
Round 1 of the Malaysia National Championship EP was held in Kota Raja Track in Klang, Malaysia. This track is considerably large with Round 1 layout to be high speed and flowy, with a few technical section, including the fast chicane in front of the driver's stand. This round was a one-sided affair where the new OrcaQ QXI 11.5T Brushless Motor was the talking point in the ProStock Class 11.5T. The new motor from Orca is one of the fastest 11.5T motor seen so far with at least 10% higher KV than most 11.5T brushless motor. Tires and inserts choice was another major concern among drivers where the old surface with medium traction and high wear rate proves to be very challenging. Tires and inserts choice is open to any brands but only 2 sets of tires are allowed for qualifying rounds, and an additional set can be used for the A-Main.

P.Y.Tang from Singapore successfully claimed victory at the Total Hobby RC Race 1/10 EP Open Modified at UTM Skudai in Malaysia. The local asphalt UTM track is a very challenging track which is a high-speed flowy track with medium to high traction. Bumpy sections and high-wear to rubber tires are the major concern among the drivers. The race is a two-day event, but most drivers were unable to do their practise runs due to bad weather on Saturday. Having tested the Xray T3 for only 2 weeks, P.Y.Tang Xray T3 debut was delighted with his qualifying rounds on Sunday despite being 2nd from the pole, where he felt his new Xray T3 stock setup was very easy to drive and very responsive to his liking. Although the car works well, P.Y. could not get some consistent timing in every run due to the high-wear rate of the tires and possibly wrong choice of tire addictive. Seems like only Ken Ng had the setup that saw he clocking under 14 seconds lap.

In the Final A1, P.Y.Tang cruises to an easy Leg 1 victory when Ken started from pole had a bad start spinning out at the first corner.

At the tone, all drivers got off to a good start but a small pile up in the second corner changed everything, with Ken Ng and P.Y.Tang fell back into an unfamiliarize position. Led by Allister, Kimie and Barry Ng and unable to hold the line, P.Y.Tang managed to push himself back into the first position after some exciting battle with side by side actions coming out of the straight. It was expected P.Y.Tang to claim its 3rd victory by a small contact with the side wall on the straight caused him to spin out losing the lead at the final lap to Allister. Ken Ng had a terrible final along with some diff problems ended up in 4th in Leg 3, but a well-deserved 3rd overall position.
