I can imagine why you must have changed your major...

To each their own. Wether it's useful or not, is another matter. Why did you bother with all the details on your shells? Why does your AE86 have the Falken livery? To make it look realistic/to scale. That's why the CS movement has been so successful.

Don't hate, appreciate.

Go to http://www.broadtech.hk/eagleshop/sh...ed%20Arm%20set

Choose your legnth. Make sure the distance between your 2 holes on your front upright is the same as a TA05. If not, modding may be required.
Thanks, that's exactly what I needed. Now its time to get my hands dirty.

It's not just drifting. Many top touring racers run full-lock 100% dual rate on their radio. People with no steering control tune down their dual rate, so they don't overshoot their steering. Even if you don't use it all the time, it's good to have range when you need it. So Paul lemieux must be doing it wrong by running 100% DR.

there is no "clean-cut" build and drift chassis, their all good its mainly up to your budget and parts support. entry level drift cars such as an Hpi e10 to highly drift chassis like the tamiya vdf. there's lots to choose from and hop-ups for nearly all of them. what are you looking for as far as drifting? practice/learning or comp/bashing?

I've got a small collection of old school Xray T1's I'm planning to drift

Should be good, nice & adjustable

I do have to disagree. The detailed bodies are nice cs or non cs. I do see your correlation between realistic bodies led to realistic driving(hence cs). That body was never drifted. it was only a show body for contests and such.

It was not, It was towards the individual who blew up my pm inbox with comments and pictures.

I made a comment about BARELY usable. there are some who drift laps around me who are counter steering when I am not. I tip my hat to you, who not only did research, but also took the time to learn and develop your skill. Very few are willing to do so.

I feel the only true benefit of running full lock is to have no ackerman, on my IFS I wish I had more of an angle, but I need to take the outside line (when racing) to compensate. In countersteer and that much lock with ackerman, isnt it barely controllable? (I am by no means a master at CS, and I do not mean to imply that I am.)

Default Advice On Car

I am new to RC drifting but have experience with off-road. I am looking to get a drifting RC but am not sure what cars are good. Preferably brushless (im not sure if brushless matters as much in on-road as it does off-road). But if anyone could point me in the write direction thanks in advance!!!!

I too race off-road and since you know pretty much about Rc I would start with a sprint2. there are lots of hop-ups for it and they do come brushless rtr and upgrade electronics from there. many people run brushless but I do see some brushed setups work as good but sensored would be the way to go if budget allowed. sensored setups will be much easier as far as low speed control. with drifting it's all about throttle control heck much like a 2wd buggy. if you would like to know more check out csjunkies or email me at d_mdriftcircuit@yahoo and I can show you more about drifting.

In the sprint to series, is it just the flux that is brushless and the sport and drift are both brushed ??

I think its just the flux - its not sensored, if you're picky about cogging. If you plan to go CS, I'd look for cars with wider steering angles - yokomo or r31 variants.

Hey guys
Hopefully someone can answer my questions.
I have a trf415 i am ready to setup for countersteer ratios
I have been told to use a 20t diff pulley to do the countersteer ratio is this correct and if so where do i get a 20t diff pulley.
And also i have seen people putting spools, one ways and diffs in the rear
Im currently running spook up front and diff rear should i change this or leave it
Any suggestions will be greatly apreciated.
