P.Y.Tang Xray-Orca podium at HPI EP On-Road Challenge Round 8 of 8 (October 3, 2010)

The last round HPI EP On-Road Challenge was held at the newly resurfaced track at ARC Speedway at Turf City, Singapore. The track originally hosted a lot of gas-powered on-road races and recently Atalon RC initiated a huge change to organize electric-powered on-road races. Rainy weather throughout the week hit Singapore but fortunately, the weather held on and turned out to be a good sunny day of RC racing. Qualifying started out late at about 1130am as there were some oversea drivers from Malaysia that were trying to put in as much track time as possible in the morning.

Track was very challenging and technical to put up some good laptimes. P.Y.Tang was testing on the new ESC setup which he ran a 6.5T motor with turbo powered from the Orca Vritra TC Pro-Spec ESC. Although P.Y.Tang was blistering and having the fastest car on the long straight, the power is probably a bit too much for this medium size technical track which he was unable to keep up with the lead pace of TQ holder Nicholas Lee. P.Y.Tang did a few changes trying to "mild" the ESC but it was just too powerful for this track. P.Y.Tang finished the race with 3rd overall, another podium finish for Xray and Orca.
