Do MST drift tires direct fit on HPI wheels?
Do Speedline drift tires direct fit on HPI wheels?

sorry if this has already been answered, but I don't have time to search through 2,000+ posts.

thanks. just wanted to make sure they didn't need any kind of special insert or "adapter" to fit the HPI wheels. I'm running extra camber up front and HPI doesn't make the "sloped" drift tires to accommodate for the camber for better tire wear/traction like MST and Speedline do.

what compound would you recommend on clean smoothe asphalt and clean concrete? I notice they offer hardest, hard, medium and soft.

Hey guys just OuT out of indoor off-road clay racing and was thinking about drift. I was looking at a simple rtr set up, nothing big I'm done with big. I was looking at the hpi e10,sprint2 or this Vaterra drift Camaro or the GTR. What do you guys think.

I hear ya, I sold everything and don't want to buy everything all over again,I'm looking at a $300 tops budget. I still have my kids stuff so really don't need a charger or battery's. I gave them some of my really good equipment and the others I sold.

The MST MS01D RTR is better than alot of higher end kits. The only thing I really don't like about it is the stock steering servo. Other than that you get pretty much every thing you want in a drift car:

-54% CS
-high angle steering
-front one way
-rear spool
-oil filled shocks
-genuine Tamiya(!!!) body

Just make sure you get the version 2 which comes with CF upper decks and some other minor extras. It's roughly the same price as the Sprint 2 RTR but is a much better drift car.

MST MS-01D RTR

I would stay away from the Vaterra unless what you're really after is just a TC basher.

The Sprint 2 and E10 are actually good beginner-level drifters but are very limited when it comes to upgrading the chassis. If you find yourself suddenly hardcore intro drifting you'll definitely want to upgrade the crap out of your chassis.
The MS01 RTR is based off the regular MS-01D, which is one of the better belt driven cars on the market and all parts are 100% intherchangable. The parts I listed for the car are either discontinued, rare, or not available for either the Sprint or the E10.
That said, I have so much fun drifting E10's that have the FOW and spool. The car is very tough and you don't feel uneasy driving on dusty surfaces as much. But, for as much as you spend on upgrading your E10 with some necessities, you should've just went with the MS RTR in the beginning.

RC drifting is more than just putting on hard tires and powersliding.

I am just a newbie with drifting, but I am hooked. I want to create a track in Austin. I just need an idea as to how big or small the drift community is in Austin.
