The race was held at Dewan Mahsuri (beside the airport) on June 1st. The venue was 1/10 200mm nitro cars with .12 engines. Fuel was limited to 16-25% and a minimum weight of 1700g was enforced. There was three qualifying rounds of 5min per heat.
Team XRAY Malaysia NT1 proved their capabilities with superb qualifying (top 3) and A mains finishes of tremendously high quality driving for the top 4 positions. The event was attended by 34 drivers and 16 NT1 in the competition made XRAY the ultimate brand to conquer. We were running on concrete surface with medium-to-high traction (although it was bumpy). Teamwork was the very high. Emeel managed to grab the Top Qualifier position with a lead of 5 seconds, followed by M.Shah and Eric Ma. The team decided to run a front differential, and the NT1 really show its great performance and fine handling.
On the morning of practice day, it was quite a messy point where the surface was a bit damp which was followed by windy weather which introduced a layer of dust to the track. Raceday morning was a question mark there were no damp sections or dusty surface. In the first qualifying session, Emeel took the limelight with a Mugen and he kept it until the 3rd round.
The final event was a bit questionable since the B main ran 35 minutes with tyre wear issues. The strategy was simplified for the drivers in A main to get ready to pit for a tyre change; this was going to be unpredictable since pit strategy plays a big role in a 45-minute main.
A Main Result – 45min:
1. Emeel XRAY NT1
2. Eric Ma XRAY NT1
3. Baha XRAY NT1
4. Mshah XRAY NT1
6. Zul Langkawi XRAY NT1
7. Ah Siong
9. Mahadir XRAY NT1
The B main was almost secured by Yus who had a comfortable 2-lap advantage, but unfortunately at 5 minutes to the finish a tyre failure forced him to pit and relegated him to 2nd place.
B Main Result – 35min:
2. Yus XRAY NT1
The C main was won by new NT1 driver Amirul.
