We sometimes see problems with RTR cars. It happens, shouldnt but does (errr looong confusing sentence....)
Please do not bash companies before making sure that, you are absolutely and positively sure that the product you bought is worthless and a design disaster that shouldnt have been even drawn let alone produced. Then yes you can go ahead and just bash their heads. This is where that is done.
But I have used HPI parts from the first day the company started making parts for the Tamiya cars. that is before HPI was the HPI you know today (and if you are less than 14 then you were still a protein). I have the original RS4 in the original form (with the 3 gear rear end) and it can still give hell to the new cars out there today.
Now If you made it through the history and an old man's lecturing speech without yawning and cursing me then you definately have potential
So the first mistake you did is buy your first car from mail order. First cars should be bought from hobbyshops that,if possible, have a track and the spare parts.
Second, I dont know the situatio n there but, this is personal opinion, cars should be driven with their fron window looking forward not to the sides, thats y the front of a cars is called the front.... I think you would have been better off with a car that can actually go straight so you can learn to drive. Though I hate drifting and I find it totally utterly and disgustingly useless waste of resources, it still requires alot of skill. Which you will gain after you learn to drive forward
did that make sense... I hope so.
So call HPI talk to them and they will help you in any way they can I am sure. Then find a hobbyshop with a track so you can have access to help quickly.
New comers are always welcomed here and if you ever need help dont hesitate to write but be prepared to be lectured and watch those who will steal your thread
have fun and welcome to the unpredictable world of RC racing....
