I've read other people have problems with LRP ESCs and drifting. Anywhere from the basic model with reverse up to the 7.1 you have. I don't know what it is with those ESCs.

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

I heard FastCats outside of Toronto is letting people drift on their carpet track. I'm not 100% sure of this. You may want to give them a call and ask what their policies and experiences are regarding drifting on carpet tracks. Their website is: http://fastcats.ca/

the reason for that is because the cell phone or anyother phone has it frequency too so when your using one and your holding your radio then the two frequencies will currupt each other and there is why you get glitches

good because instead of tourge taking over to snap a drift the rpms of a modified motor does it (if it is lower tourqe but in your sit. then its ok)

i used to run modified drifting but it was just to much so i now use a guad mag 17turns or up to 15 turns

15 turn is my limit (for drifting)

by the way does anybody have the rtr tc4 motor that is 15 turn that they dont want anymore?
