Radio Controlled Drift

I decided to start this thread because there are some people interested in radio controlled drift. It's a fun hobby. What you need is an On-Road 1/10 4WD car and some drift tires. If you have any questions post them here. General discussion is open.

What's different about the tyres? Do they just make them hard and slick or something? Are the rears different to the fronts? Always been curious about that.

I could probably driffz my Jato if I had different tires. If there's even a little bit of sand, I can whip it out with my anacondas.

on the last half of that sentance..

Some drifters use special drift tire's that are alot harder and a lot slicker. Tamiya and Yokohama make some Single and Double ring tires. Some people also use ABS (kind like PVC) pipe which works the same. A few drill holes in the ABS material and fill them with hot glue to be able to have a more controlled drift. From there on, it's basically all about preference and how your car drives.

my drift rc. tamiya tt-01. used pvc wheels. had the yokomo single rings and those were too expensive for drifting in parking lots/my street. abs pipe works the best imo.

I have a TT-01 though. I've changed everything in it but the tub. Get a new motor for it, your drift gets alot longer.

Wow... tamiya 4wd cars look a lot better than how I remembered them when I worked at hobbyshack. It looks like it uses a lexan body now. I hated finding parts for tamiya cars for the older kits. Motor looks stock... I agree... get a better motor.

TT-01. It's made by Tamiya. It's practically ready to drift out of the box. It's really upgradeable too.

HPI makes electrics too. But I agree that nitro's have unrealistic speeds, but I have seen electric motors produce some unrealistic speeds as well.

You can control Nitros if you're anywhere near good with a remote.

I can make my JATO do anything I want it to, pending I know the surface I'm using it on.

Have you tried other motors?
At first, my stock was great for me, but after i changed out the motor and the ESC, i noticed a HUGE improvement. I have a 19turn in there right now and i love it.

It's really all about personal preference though. Some people like the stock motor, some hate it. Your car, do what you must.
