Those where HPI Sprint chassis with what looked like a Rc rim with the tire bead glued on but the rest of the tire cut off, connected to a piece of plactice pipe for the tire. Im gonna try that on my car :D I have like hundreds of dollars worth of mods when all i needed was sum pvc tires :) :D

You can pretty much drift with any chassis as long as it's 4wd. Electric tape wrapped around the tires works well too. A cheap 4wd car to start out with is the TL01 tamiya chassis. The kit starts at about 80 bucks, 39 bucks for a decent speed controller, 20 bucks for a battery, and 39 bucks for a radio w/ reciever. So it's not too bad. The chassis that these guys were using was the hpi RS4 pro 2 chassis. Using the pvc pipe set-up as demonstrated by these guys, rc cars do slower, more elegant drifts. I prefer using electric tape on my micro rs4 -high speed power over style drifts.

Yokomo is coming out with a line of 'drift king' products if you haven't already heard. They will have the drift tires, phat as wheels, and detailed drift bodies. Also, they are going to have their own chassis which is almost identical to their touring car series. I'd imagine that the upgrades for the yokomo drift chassis to be expensive. The HPI stuff and tamiya are just as good for drifting because you can tune out the ride height, damper on springs, toe, camber, and gear ratios.

For you RC enthusiasts, there is a new RC drift forum if you're interested. It's www.rcdrift.com

it's only been up for a couple of days.

and i would like to say i can do REAL drifts with my own RC car without having to use tape, sand, or anyother unrealistic methods.. its all about suspension and tire setup

hah.so it is a sprint, that's funny. I'd rather drift with my micro too. What is your problem mrod, you have quite an ego problem, cool guy. I could drift without tape but using my 10 scale with a nice tourquey pinion and a superstock truck motor. Then again, I'd rather drift my real car.

By the way, since you work on the sprint so damn much(or observe), what upgrades fit it? would the pro 2 or pro 3 upgrades work such as ball diffs or servo mounts and so forth?

man, that was so cool. But i was wondering if there was a site where these were sold. I dont really want teh chassis, but i want the bodies, the skyline and the rx7 are awsome. Now, i dont speak any japanese, but i did notice the add att eh end for teh car. So, i figured that there would have to be a site about teh cars.

And MrodDrft i can view your pics, dont know if you took them done, but if its just not working, i can host them for you. Because i want to see the pics ;)

Thanks Guys

damn, that a pretty cool car. Ive always wanted a RC car, and im getting ready to get one. Im looking at electric to start out with, and get use to the driving. But, do you think drifting with a nitro rc car would be different? Becuase i would think that that would be a little to much power.

And damn, you must of been going pretty fast to break the rear ax. when drifting, but of course these are practly real cars :p And maybe you can help me out on my purchase, becuase i get a little confused with it comes to chassis size and all that crap :rolleyes:


thanks for hosting the pics again.

For drifting u defiently want electric. For some rc drifting info hit up www.rcdrift.com or ask me anything u wanna know.

Heres the "Drift thread" where they post their setups Drift thread (http://rcdrift.proboards27.com/index.cgi?board=Drift&num=1074313229&action=display&start=0)
