To clarify what I know Raman meant is that when you give it full throttle with the car sitting on the ground on its own, the slipper should slip as the car accelerates and then stop slipping, once the car is moving. This is the 2-3 seconds Raman is talking about.

I think that with onroad cars it's a little more tricky, as the tires can be breaking loose before the slipper slips, especially on carpet. If you're sure you're getting grip, the above method should work. If you're not getting grip, the tires will probably spin before the slipper slips.

In that case, I'd hold the car down and loosen the slipper until it clearly slips when you give it throttle. Then tighten it, 1/8th turn at a time, until you can clearly hear the motor start to struggle. Back it off 1/8th turn (or slightly more) until it slips more freely again. That should put you in a decent ballpark, I would say. Edit: don't hold the throttle down for more than a second at a time while doing this. It's literally a blip of the full throttle to hear the slipper slip (or not). I would say 1 second duration at most. If you hold it longer you're going to quickly glaze your slipper pads. Luckily, if you do that, you can just use some fine grit sandpaper to scuff them back up.

It's so much easier with offroad cars

Default got my XV-01 last week

I got my XV-01 last week and i had a lot of fun while building it.

Yesterday I did the first roll-out with the standart set up with an old Orion sensorless motor and a genius 75 as ESC. The car is much better than my old df-03ra. I don't regret the decision to buy the xv-01pro instead of repairing my df-03ra, which never ran the way i wantend it to.

As promised, here is the latest iteration of my XV Pro. This time I went for a basic drifter. So, running drift wheels with plastic tires, Spec-R TC shocks and springs, and the sweet Toyota Levin body by HPI. I also switched to an SMC 10.5 SM-1 sensored motor powered by a Xerun Justock ESC, and threw in some 10K diff oil up front with 1K in the back with metal gears (not really a drift setup, I know). Running on my hardwood floor, it's a lot of fun

Thanks! It's rattlecan, Tamiya PS-23 "Gun Metal", backed with silver. Then used some Tamiya window tint on the windows.

That looks cool man!!!
You can even throw in some heavier oil up front. I'm using about 90k front, 1k rear.

How does it handle it drifting?

I actually wanted to put 100K up front, but realized the bottle I had was 10K. Whoops

It handles pretty good actually, I think my drift skills are just pretty bad. In theory, heavier oil in the back (like locking the rear diff) would be better for drifting. But, this is an all purpose chassis, so I'm just having fun with it

Well, dammit. That video got me thinking, and now I think I may order the Tamiya Lancia Delta body set (51401). I saw a guy earlier in the thread had one, so I presume it fits well (with the trimmed bumper). Anyone else running that body?

I would prefer the Lancia Delta S4, but anyway the Stratos is a legend and an icon for beautiful 70s Design.

Agreed I'm just trying to clarify how well it fits the XV
