Straight out of the box, the Sprint 2 Flux isn't a good drifter with just drift tires. You'll get some sweet power slides out of it, and some tail-whips that end up in a spin out, but that's about it. After some practice you may get some acceptable drift maneuvers out of it, but nothing great. If you really want it to be good at drifting, you'll need to start with the following at least...
1. appropriate drift tires for your surface
2. Castle Link to turn down power output (Flux motor is way too much power for drifting) and requires a ton of precise throttle work with your finger at full output.
3. new suspension. the stock S2 suspension is garbage for drifting. this can be tricky as it all depends on your style of driving, your surface and the layout of your chassis and if you are in large course or small, tight course. generally though, really soften up the rear and soften up the front some. this means soft(er) springs and lighter shock oil.
4. lock the rear diff
do these and you'll notice the Sprint 2 can actually drift now instead of just slide around out of control, dependent on driver skill. there are other mods you can do to the sprint 2 to make it a better drifter, but will render it almost useless as a high-speed parking lot basher.
