Wow, didn't know about this thread into now

Would have donated my track to you guys when I had it. If you guys are interested I donated my Tamiya 2/4 lane track to Salvation Army on Granville and 68th st.. Donated this a few months ago. If you guys are interested go check to see if its still there

anyone know where i can get some of these cars and parts in hk? almost all the ebay sellers for these are from hk. but when i went back a few year back, i could never find any hobby shops carrying them. i have some friends back there now that could help bring a lot back. i just need to know where to get them. maybe a wholesaler?

Chi Lok in Tuen Mun still got parts but they are phasing them out pretty quickly in HK as people who watched Let's and Go etc have now grown up and are either racing some 1:10 R/C cars or racing some 1:1 cars :P.

It'll be really difficult to find retail outlet for mini 4WDs these days as races don't happen no more and laying out tracks in HK is difficult.
