Thanks guys. I'm pretty new so the only advice I can give is to practice and be mindfull of your throttle. It seems to me that a good throttle finger and light steering corrections are the way to go. As noted, the right tires make a huge difference .

i know this is a drift thread, but anybody with a ta05 vdf ever put rubber tires on it and tried to actually race it in a touring car race like usgt or usvta?? it looks like an interesting chassis...kinda like a backwards x-ray t2 007

I'm sure you could. Tamiya offers an Ackerman Steering option set just for this purpose. It may run a little weird for grip racing with so much weight upfront.

Anyone using a Losi XXXS for drifting? Got one I want to convert into a drifter. Not sure of what use as far as electronics or chassis setup. Also looking for some ideas as far as bodies. Thanks in advance for any help.

I've heard nothing but good things about the XXXS when it comes to drift. But then I never actually seen it. My roommate is actually in the process of converting his XXXS for drift. Right now though were working on the electronics since all his stuff is from early in the decade.

Need to get some new pulleys for my OTA-R31 so I can fit the Kazama spur gear holder (it uses set screws for the outer pulley)
