Someone from GD said they don't get hooked up. I thought they did since they do so many shells. Maybe some of the guys get something. I know factory drivers usually get stuff at 50% off retail. Are they considered "factory drivers"?
Hell, I'll drift a DriftKing if they sponsored me. Hmmm, well, maybe not. lol...
You've been drifting alot and seem to have alot of experience with different chassis. What's your take on Yokomos being the best for drifting?
I sold an SSG Stage 3 Upgrade to a guy in South Africa (Odyssey) and he says that the drifts on the SSG are waaaay better and more predictable than the DP or even the TT-01. Alot of those guys in SA now want to switch over to the SSG.
But then there are those Yokomo haters that say TT-01s are all you really need. It might be all you really need, but are they that good once you get the right setup?
Drifting any of those high end chassis is pretty extreme. I've got an SSG myself but I bought it used and beat up. I can't get myself to beat up something as nice as a brand new Tamiya 414xx, SSG, BD, Pro4, etc...

sheesh, if yokomo wanted to hook me up, i'll run all yokomo stuff i do have a drift spec that i am selling though. gonna try a SD just because it shouldn't feel as "sloppy" as my drift spec does. if they sponsor our meets and/or comps, we definitely would run a banner and stuff. most guys here run tamiyas because of the low entry cost. then they sometimes get more expensive kits. but the ones that started out with pro4's and stuff all got basic tamiyas as their backup and or main drift cars now.
