Ive had to throw every redneck trick in the book to get it where it is now and I keep up with all the tuned chasis I drive with. But with the sprint 2 im all over them like crap on velcro.
You're compairing a nitro with an electro... no shit that the sprint is better in drifting. Nitro's aren't the best thing for that.
Tried a sprint chassis from a friend and it had lots of understeer compaired to my pro4/cyclone and couldn't get rid of it.
I must admit that i didn't get much time to try things but on my pro4 and cyclone i didn't change much to make it drift how i liked.
Think it has to do with the design of the sprint, it has most of its weight on the back wheels.
My experience with rcdrifting is that you need more weight on the front. Most of us here even put weights on the front bumper.
But yeah if you really want a sprint just buy it.
Quality wise it isn't that bad, especially if you compare it to a Tamiya TT01..
