it all depends on your drifting style, chassis, gear ratio, and many other unknown variables so i cant really anwer that question but i would go for 19turn if you need longer drifts and stock for smaller drifts but i would pretty much never run modified unless i get more grip for drifting

When I first started drifting, most people were telling me to go with a stock motor like a P2K2 Pro or a Monster. Now, people are starting to find that 19T Quad Mag motors are pretty good too - faster drifting with enough torque.

Don't go with a modified motor. You'll just be eating up your runtime. Plus those motors don't have enough torque.

I started off with a P2K2 Pro but I've moved onto a SuperSport 5800 brushless system. It just makes more sense to go brushless. No need for cutting comms or replacing springs and brushes. In the long run, you save alot of money.

I'm not really intrested in drifting but im looking for info.

We have a indoor carpet track and there has been alot of drift intrest outside of our club. Probably 10 guys that hit the parking lots and other areas..

I would like to invite them to our indoor track to help our club grow as well as give them an oportunity to grow there drifting group. We have a huge indoor track thats available to them 7 days a week.

The question is what tires should we recomend they get to drift on carpet? And what initial setup changes should they make to there cars? Suggestions for motors?

PVC and ABS tires are not an option as they can damage the carpet if they hit boards and nik the edge of the abs/pvc tire. Also the club concensus is the track will only allow foam or rubber tires. YOKOMO rubber with rings is allowed since the sidewalls are rubber. and its thought they would be save on carpet

Really looking for input from guys that actually drift on carpet. Not suggestions as i already have a suggestions as to what might work but i really am looking for what will work. THANKS
