Use your throttle more.

I thought ABS was too slippery for a while, but once I started to drive with the throttle and control drifts with it more than with steering, ABS has such a great range of ability.

Keep in mind... I have the 6900kV motor, so whatever you have is probably more manageable.

I hear T drifts are good... or the new Polypropene pipe...

Mine's a TT01D Xpert Built RTR. For this package, is the ESC & Receiver separate? Because I was told certain TT01D had their ESC & Receiver together so if want to upgrade a better motor, will also have to change ESC & Receiver.

You gotta try out both, man. We dunno how you drive--only you can figure out your setup.

For some people they do soft in front and stiff in the rear, but others do the opposite like you described.

Drift D or anyone else:

I am drifting my new Rally RS4. However I am finding it easy to spin out when I let off the throttle. On the other hand, I have learned to drift while keeping the throttle on.

The RS4 has really tall shocks which are necessary for my area, so I am drifting on a tall ride height. Right now I also have taller spacers in the rear shocks, while there are shorter spacers in the front. These are the long, soft shocks made for rally.

Basically my question is, does anyone drift like this? I find that if I keep the setup (I will modify a bit) that will spin out if there is no throttle, I can handle it in such a way where I can get the snappy backlash to launch the car into the next turn, while manipulating the throttle to get smoother control for longer drifts.

My next step is to try to take my car around a makeshift track. I really want a flat surface though, because my driveway is slanted...

I guess I can keep updating changes and their effects. I know this is a RS4, but it pertains to drifting...hehe

i have the exact same effect as your describing. I dont call it a problem anymore, because i have learnt to work with it, not against it. As you explained in a few posts back, it certainly is all about throttle control. Use this 'feature' for tight/sharp corners that require more throw into them. if you need to slow down, feather the throttle but dont off the throttle straight away, in saying that when your in need of the brakes, brake straight away, dont off the throttle for a bit then brake. i find if i do have the throttle low my chassis wont spin out, its just when i have no throttle applied is when it wants to spin...

Your theory maybe correct, but since the car is moving forward, wouldnt all the weight get transferred to the rear, then when you off the throttle all the weight would transfer to the front causing the spinout effect...

Yes... the latter of what you said. I am really tired...haha!

I was a little sad that my car was doing that at first (first time I took te RS4 out on ABS) but then I learned that it has a lot of options and abilities.

What gearing do you recommend for the silver can motor that comes with the TT-01? the stock gearing (i think its 61 spur and 19 pinion) is too slow. I just ordered the 55 tooth spur and 24/25 pinion and was wondering if this is overkill.

Yo Patel,

I hear lots of people saying that the silver can motor has lots of torque, so you should be okay... but keep in mind, what size track are you talking?

Also, I think you will also get the 58T spur in that package. That will give you plenty of options. I really don't have experience with the silver can though, so I can't say what is good or what isn't.

Good luck with that!

Agree,
On a big flowing track silver cans can run low 5's, even mid 4's and they like low 6 or below for even tight tracks. You should like those gears.
