[QUOTE=TY@TEAMTEKIN;10703545]Here's my EVO X. Carbon hood, roof and trunk are on the way, along with the interior and roll cage. It's got a few little scuffs from rubbing the walls on the track here and there. It drifts really nicely on carpet! Still a work in progress, will update more.



Looks real nice man might have to get a Tekin setup for the TC3 drifter im building what size pinion and spur do you run?

Right now it's 25/84 and has plenty of rip. I also just added a full interior and roll cage to it.

Only seven people have looked the Stig straight in the eyes. They are all dead now.

Super nice dude looks real good! I think you have inspired me to build a second drifter lol, even though I havent finished my first one, but I ordered all the parts to finish my first project the other day so all i have to do is put the motor and esc and reciever etc in when order arrives. I ended up going with a Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro w/Neu Castle 4-pole 1406 (4600kV) for my first build, but want to go Tekin for my next 1/8 buggy and drifter projects.

I'm not that familiar with the AE cars but if you can swap the diffs front to rear then that should work. I just tightened my rear diff, there isn't much traction with the T-Drift tires so I can't think it would slip. I could tell immediately how the rear of the car was more consistent. I still haven't done a one-way but I think since we just mess around on the carpet I'm not going to put one in.

I've watched many videos on drifting. Blows my mind to see it with a all wheel drive car.
