Default RE:

This device works on all HPI Racing and HotBodies vehicles. This system was specially developed for RC cars to assist in getting the perfect drift angle around the turns but further research yielded benefits for every vehicle! From the Micro’s to the Baja, this Adjustable Stability Control System will assist your driving and overall car control.

With offroad vehicles, the Adjustable Stability Control System helps you concentrate on driving to the next turn as it keeps the vehicle running smooth through obstacles such as rough ruts. Hitting ruts at an angle would normally pull the steering off the intended path and your late counter reactive steering input would have you “flopping all over” when you initially just wanted to go straight. With the assistance from the Adjustable Stability Control System, The steering automatically reacts and keeps you on the straight and narrow, which is the fastest line from point-A to point-B.

For Drifting, the Adjustable Stability Control System even allows drift-beginners to enjoy dynamic drift driving, so it is the perfect item for those who want to try drift driving or think drift driving is too difficult. Or maybe you have built the monster on-road car that just has way too much motor and not enough tire and does nothing but doughnuts, then this system will assist in making it more drivable.

All of this control is achieved with an ultra-small yaw control sensor that allows the Adjustable Stability Control System to detect your machine's tail sliding, and the optimized automatic counter-steering prevents your car from spinning. It comes with a gain control function to adjust counter-steering according to the track surface condition and / or the amount of control assistance you are looking for.

Just connect the Adjustable Stability Control System to the steering servo and it will electronically assist your driving. The device weights only 6.7g. The Stability Control System / D-BOX is connected between the receiver and the steering servo and can be used with all radio gear using Futaba style connectors. This is the ideal hop-up part for the Sprint 2 - Stage-D Kit (#30401 and #30402) and #33432 Stage-D Conversion Set for the Nitro 3, and will also work in offroad trucks and buggies.

Note: The Adjustable Stability Controls may be an unfair advantage and not legal for racing, check your local rule book. Yes, it’s that good!

For a better look at the performance capability of the D-Box, check out this video:

Yes, people on the RC Car action forums pointed out the same thing. Are all three units functionally Identical? and are they of any value for something besides drifting?

Wow, that was pretty impressive. These guys were drifting with HPI rubber compound drift tires. I wonder how the driftbox will perform with ABS?

I heard about it a few months ago too and I was very skeptical about its performance. But after watching this vid, I'm pretty impressed. Like you, I would still rather drift on my own.

The problem with the drifting in the vid it is more or less like fishtailing through a turn rather than long sweeping drifts you would see with ABS. He's not getting very sideways. Is this something caused by the HPI rubber compound drift wheels with the dbox? I'd like to see it used with ABS.

The best I've seen for drift tires is $9.99 shipped for 3 sets when they have the free S&H special.
