New in pits at the 2012 1-12 IFMAR Electric World Championships in Netherlands, the ORCA 1S Vritra Speedo, tested by Swedish top ace Team XRAY/ORCA Alexander Hagberg. Alexander finished overall 7th in the A-Main with his XRAY X12. More info of this product coming soon. Stay tuned!
It was another round of MNC 2012 held in MBA track. The venue that all of us liked very much. It would not be too much of a surprise that Mr. Jacky Siow and son WoonFoong took the top 2 spots and with another veteran driver taking the top three spots. Running again with the GFT tires proved that GFT has made good effort to maintain the consistency of the tire compound while giving adequate traction through out. The full results are as follows.
ORCA Asia is proud to announce that ORCA is again on top at the recently held Sempena Rebranding Pusat Belia dan Hari Terbuka Pemkar held in Brunei running on an indoor carpet track. The race was won by Hazmi Minez who is the TQ and the eventual winner.
Last but not least its the inaugural Shen Shiang Cup held in Kuching, E. Malaysia. It is one of the rare races where modified motors are ran at the race as the track is pretty big with some running as low as a 4.5T motor and it was a first time for me to drive a real modified motor(6.5T) in Malaysia for a long long time. It was nice to make many new friends and was also nice to see how RC is in E. Malaysia side and am very encouraged by the big turn out for the race. Thank you all for the great hospitality and a very special thank to Danny (Dan 21) for playing a great host during our stay in Kuching.
ORCA signs Italian National Champion Alessio Menicucci for 2012. The Italian Champion and ETS A-Main finisher will join a growing team of ORCA drivers in Europe which includes Alexander Hagberg, Adrian Berntsen and Marco Kaufmann. Alessio will be using the complete ORCA line with ORCA VX Speedo, RX2 Motors and Infinite LiPo Batteries.

As controversies mounting up at the 7th IFMAR Electric Touring Car World Championships, bad weather hit the MACH, creating chaos during Q5 and Q6. Unfortunate outcome benefited some drivers while it hit XRAY drivers hardest, dropping off Alexander Hagberg from Team XRAY and Team ORCA down to C-Main. Alexander Hagberg had to settled with C2 even though running at A-Main pace. Great fight from the guys and good luck! We hope to see much more organize IFMAR management in the future!

P.Y.Tang dropped in to share with us on the tire treatment he used at the Tamiya Asia Cup Finals 2012 which he TQ and won in the 4WD GT class. Although car setups were very important for the high traction carpet, P.Y. added that to prevent traction rolling and providing a good corner speed, a good traction compound or tire addictive could also be very advantageous.
