ok, so i have some questions about my hpi e10. i want a tamiya dc5 integra body (190mm) and i want to know the best staggered offset i can run with tons of camber. and how can i make a roll cage? and i really want a body kit that i can screw to my body. i saw a fc3s with a wicked kit on it. but idk where to get that at. will i have to chop up another body to get the parts? thanks for your time guys.

Doriyaa that pic is like gigantic bro.

BVM13, sup bro! Welcome to RC drifting. Anyways not exactly sure about a max offset wheel for your E10. I say the more the merrier. Hellaflush is where its at!

As fun as it is, you dont want to drive your car in the rain or anywhere wet. Yeah there is a such thing as water proof electronics but some things of your car aren't. Bearings will be shot. Think about it, there's basically 2 bearings for every rotating thing that sticks out. Water can get in your gearboxes and wash off the lube etc etc. A long time ago I drove my nitro sedan in the rain and it was the most fun I've ever had with an RC car. The water would hit the engine and the car would trail steam. It looked so kick ass.

Anyways, you might want to check out some of the more RC drift specific forums around the web. General forums tend to not be as specific when trying to find out something. CS Junkies and D1RC come to mind.

cool, thanks guys i appreciate that. and hellaflush is what i'm about. i talked to the guy at my hobby shop and he was hating on it lol. but i want to run like a 9mm offset in the rear and a 3mm up front and camber the shit out of it. some guy told me i could glue straws together for a cage. but is there anything more sturdy? i was thinking wooden dowels would do the trick. thanks for the welcome guys! keep em spinning

12 or so years ago I'd say yeah. It has 4wd. But parts for a TA01 are hard to get nowadays.
I saw you posted on the Sakura D3 forum. Are you looking for a cheap car to drift?

If you have a TT01 that is a very good drift car. There's a very big aftermarket for it and parts are still available.

Any car can drift but it takes a 4wd car to drift consistently and with precision
