Just started drifting a couple weeks ago. Just finished my M3 body with led's so I thought I'd take it for a spin. Car is a tb03 vds with one way up front and sidewinder esc/motor combo on HPI T-drifts. comments & criticisms are welcome.

I've been happy with my otat31, super adjustable and lots of parts support. I do like the adjustable bottom deck on the mst chassis, been looking at things to cut away on mine.

Ask anyone who countersteers REGULARLY how often they go through motors, or can never get gearing right, or have esc/motor temp issues...
you have no idea what your talking about.....

I've been CS for years and have none of what your talking about. Most times i tune my camber to fit wheels into the wheel wells on my cars.

i consistently run 8+* of camber and have used the same set of tires for the past 6 months and i run daily...

i have also ran the same motor for the entire time. the main difference between 4wd and CS is you have to go way up on FDR. i run 7+ FDR normally.

alot of chassis are VERY similar these days. search around on other drift only forums for better ideas then the bias you get here.

I have a TC-FD, DRB, and a bunch of others. i love them all

You know what? There is no advantage from ordering from driftspeed. Even tho, theyre domestic, they charge so much for shipping, total cost is the same anyway. EMS shipping from Japan gets to your door in 5 days, plus they have more selection anyway. I have ordered from pretty much everywhere, domestic or overseas. There is no reason to charge 30 bucks for domestic ups shipping for a shell. I shipped a technics 1200 turntable in a flight case for less than that via ups. Driftspeed wanted 8 bucks to ship just a drb battery holder.

Hey everyone, been into drifting for a little while now. I've had numerous HPI e10's and they have been great. I found a great deal on a Yokomo Dmax and seeing if anyone else has one. It's a bit twitchy and a little over powering in the rear. It seems like it is more of a 15% power up front and 85% power in the rear. Anyone know how to bring it closer to 50/50?
