Thanks Skeet215
I know the wheel openings are bit too large because I made the body for onroad use first but I think it still looks pretty good.

Not yet Billy Kelly, soon I hope, maybe next week on an indoor track. I ordered a couple of new gens ace shorty batts already for it.

I have also the Oxygen conversion upper "deck" but yet not installed. I will test this Sakura stock deck first and then the Oxygen one to see the difference with more/less caster.

Did anyone see the Yeah Racing RWD conversion kit for HPI Sprint 2? Looks pretty cool.

hi guys
I trained last night in darkness and this morning, can say the Sakura RWD is awesome and can drive really tight lines. The sanwa gyro is fantastic as well and helps a lot! This was a big jump from fazer 4WD. I tested it, too, on my carpet, and at first the 4WD feels fun but for drifting the Sakura is so much better!

So I need some new drift tires but I was wondering if there is any specific type or brand better suited for blacktop/asphalt drifting? Any suggestions?

hpis are very slick but also very hard. tamiyas or some a bit more stickier compund maybe nicer to try out.
