I spray one section at a time with a very very heavy coat then blotch it with paper,Bag,sand witch bag, Foil paper or what ever you want to use... and then Blow dry it, you can put on the cover coat till the first coat it dry cus the colors will bleed into each other, the cover coat has to be lighter than the base coat, then you need to let the cover coat dry, and then shoot your backing color White,silver etc etc so that your lighter cover coat will pop or contrast against the dark base coat!

Hope this helps!

Hey guys I am new to the whole dift side of R/C. I just got a charger and battery for my Sprint2. My big question is, is there a big difference in drift tires? Is there one that is better then the other?

Thanks guys.

Hey bro. There are some considerable differences between drift tires. The most common tire people use for drifting is the ABS tire which is homemade or bought on ebay and is made from ABS drainpipe. This is a very cheap tire that performs consistent until its end. The second most commonly used compound is the t-drift tires. They are a softer compound than ABS which gives them a more controllable and smooth drift, but cost about 12.00 for a pair and wear extremely fast (on asphalt, smooth surfaces wear exponentially less) T-drift tires are expensive but mega cool, they come in 3 types, the regular no tread tires, the officially licensed t-drift that match the tread of actual drift tires like Bridgestone and Falken, and the LP series of t-drift are the same compound but have special wheels they have to be mounted on to. (they wont fit on a standard touring car wheel) Mega cool mega pricey.
Very Noteworthy tires are the yokomo drift tires that drift like ABS but better have rubber outer edges and a plastic center of the tire. Tamiya drift tires mounted on tamiya drift wheels need a spaced to increase the offset on a sprint 2. They are extremely fast.
The fastest drift tire in my opinion is the HPI a-drift tires. They are hard compound rubber and usually can be found mounted on chrome te37 wheels. Hpi has discontinued them like this but the bare tire is orderable at any LHC. they must be boiled for a sec to mount them, i had to bite them haha I hope this answers most of your question!

Thanks Kenny...yea it helped alot. Someone told me that electrical tape wrapped well around the tires works for a little bit. But onto another ???( I know I am a noob sorry guys) Is there another rear diff that is good to use besides the HPI 32T Ball bearing(#86040)?? Every where I am looking online is out of order. I am going to start calling the LHS next just wondered if there was something comprable out there that I didnt know about..(Sorry guys I am a big noob)
