Winter was mild this year until this past week. I was able to tune my TC3 the way I want it to drift. I drifted it 4 times and I'm very impressed with the results. I bought an integy setup system which helped tremendously. I figured out my front diff was getting loose after a run or two and needed a rebuild. I put on some softer springs and I put 10wt oil in the shocks. I sold off alot of spare parts, bought a XS3 Pro, MIP Tweak station(haven't tried it yet), the integy setup system, a battery case, some batts. I'm ready to drift when spring rolls around.

i totaly messed up my xxx-s drivetrain

what happened is that i was running on a bumpy walk trough thing downhill( ) and during my drift my car became glitchy and my belt melted stripped and then snaped im guessing...also my teeth on the spur that contacts my belt is also melted and practicly gone...also my diffs's side walls are snaped gone on the side walls that prevent the belt from comming off...

well yea i guess im gona be going back to my tc3 for awhile until i can get some parts that i need for the xxx-s

well yea nice to see you again henry and looks like your most defently gonna have a good spring

hopefully me too

(i hate Karma )

I had a similar experience with my MR4TC Special. That's why I don't drift the thing. It's too bad 'cause at first, it was drifting way better than my TC3. If anyone plans on doing alot of drifting on the street or other non-swept surfaces, I highly recommend sticking with a shaft driven car. You'll never know if anything can get in there and ruin the belt. I'm not familiar with the XXX-S so I don't know if it is even possible for anything to get into the diff cases.

yea i know but the thing is since im running on the street and if i get a single rock on the belt tunnel itll get in the drivetrain and i would have to unscrew 3 screw or even 7 or more screws so yea i run mine fully open and found out if the rocks come in they fall right out through the bottom hole!!!

Default Have you tried this drift motor ?

Drift Machine Motors Now Shipping!

Drifting, the concept of driving a car on the edge of control, sliding it through a series of turns, is taking the motorsports world by storm. R/C Drifting is, as expected, growing at a rate equal to that of its full size counterpart.



Always on the cutting edge, Team Orion is proud to introduce the Drift Machine concept - a carefully selected line of electric motors, batteries and option parts designed specifically to take advantage of limited grip plastic and rubber tire equipped drift cars.



Machine wound, each Drift Machine (DM) motor is based on Team Orionís world renowned, championship winning, V2 modified racing motors and use the same aluminum endbell, can, magnets, and armature blank. Two track tested winds are currently available - an 11-turn for rubber tire equipped cars and an 18-turn for plastic tire equipped cars. Adjustable timing is standard (US Spec) but fixed timing versions are available for those wishing to drift Japanese style (J-Spec).



Fully upgradeable, 11-turn and 18-turn hand wound armatures are available. All standard V2 brushes and springs can be utilized for optimal tuning.



Team Orion is proud to introduce world-class knowledge and engineering to this incredibly exciting R/C discipline.

yea thanks lol im the drift test dummy 10 turns and lower do not! i repeat not drift well unless you have about half a mile of area to slide to a stop it does make some fine impressive drifting spinning round and round and round until the kerb has its way and makes yer car fly it does make you look good if you can save it especially if people are watching hey were you suposed to spin around about 20 times then with that look on your face...........errrr yea its of course i did total control i just need to change my kacks now thats all

Once those drift motors come out over here no doubt i will gove one a go the 11 turn sound like its down my street

LOL thats hella crzy

well yea just got done with my new costom drift tires( for me and me only )

and well put it on my tc3 and just ran in in my steets and well i can say i can over take my brother easily with his ntc3 on the OUTSIDE and have plently of power,grip,angle,and SPEED...thats right im hitting about 38- 46 mph drifts

i should take this out to a really tight downhill street and drift against some REAL cars (like s15,s14,s13,86's,etc,etc,etc)

well with this info u can already guess where im getting at
