drift tires are a super hard compound rubber tires(HPI) or you can use the yokomo drift tires

if you want to save money just use pvs or abs piping and cut it to the liking of your width

you put drift tires on all 4 wheel

Go check out http://www.driftrcentral.com for some more info on drifting and I'm pretty sure there are a bunch of guys that hang out there from NYC and Long Island that you can drift with.

Looking at the stratus 3.0...

Previously ran an S2000 for kicks, but I know it was a hinderance.

Any info is appreciated.

Thanks.

The Mazda is the best all around body... although I ran a stratus AP last weekend which was pretty good at getting rid of the oversteer. Really can't go wrong with either one.

Try either a trinity PK2 Pro, or a green Machine , or a Monster!As far as gearing we dont know what your running for a spur , what tires, what size diameter they are.Just remember to go down a tooth or 2 if you use the monster.Its more RPM based than the other 2 motors .
