Just finished building the RC-Art White Wolf and almost done building the Street Jam OTA-R3R, can't wait to test both cars...

One thing that I am kinda dissapointed on the White Wolf is that it uses most of the parts of the Street Jam..Oh well, it sure is a good looking car though.

I got it from Banzai Hobby, not cheap, I think I paid about $680.00 shipped, it just depends on the exchange rate at the time...

It was out of stock when I ordered it but they got it in by the week after I paid..

Here's a link

brushless are the same (drift and race)
brushed are the same (drift and race)

Its the rating of the motor that counts for example, i race in a class that uses a 21.5 brushless motor (rated at 1600kv) and i drift using a 9 turn (4300kv), basically the lower the turn the stronger the motor.
Hope that makes sense

got it and replied.

Im drifting using an older style TT01 using Eagle racing rear mount chassis, and have been setting up a TB03 Eagle Racing setup as well. The TB03 is sweet on the bitumenn we have been running on, but have noticed on the carpet we needed to switch to a treaded hard tire to get a bit of control.

Really like the TA05 VDF chassis, but have spent a lot of time setting up for on road racing, so when i can save $$ the TA05 is going to be gotten

I think in my limited experience that your ability to drift is far more important than the car you're drifting

+1 on that point

Everyone has their "preference" for what they prefer to drift with.

I went back to TT01+TbB03 (set up with Eagle chassis) after trying belt driven chassis (for 6 months), as i prefer the way they feel, and it suits my driving style.

The main thing is to have fun and enjoy the drifting
