The novak is ok. I've got one of the older ones and the 3.5 looks nice. But the mamba kicks a$$. Totally computer tweakable and the 7700 has more power than I'd feel safe using even on carpet with foams! One of the locals here clocked his car with it at over 100kph, and he ran out of track.

Try tapping the break as you turn. Throttle something like - on, break, full, control for drift. The timing of the steering and throttle changes will take some practice. Also, with that car, you may get more steering before full lock that at full lock.

well, I tried that too...go fast, brake, turn, throttle...nope just keeps sliding straight. Slows down, then decides"hey, I think I'll drift now"

I guess I'll just get a harder rear spring or sway...see what it does.

thats the best thing to do, a set-up that works for me may not work for you, the best thing to do is find a good set-up, dont worry about the perfect setup, just get a good one. then focus on your driving,

driving has never been a problem. After drifting around a parking lot for a while, I lent my car to some guys that wanted to try it out...all donuts and switch back slides...they were kinda disappointed cuz they couldnt get it to drift.

just thought id add my car in here as i am a MAJOR drift fan, i find Forza motor sport helps ease my addiction lol

This is my spare car my TL01, im awaiting new radio gear for it as i used it all for my TT01 but before i stripped it out i had a fair but of fun drifting.

The car will be stock (msc stock silver can etc) just fully ball raced with abs tyres!!!

i used tape before i got ABS, but this worked for around 5-9 mins of a run then the tape melted onto the tyre and bacame so rough they gripped!!

Any way hears a pic of my drifter with a mashed subaru shell and my new un-used TT01 with nissan 350z shell hidding behind

(what do you think of the home made centre exit oval race pipe,lol looks ok to me)

ok i had an old GBA light thing lying around and had a thought

why not make a set of lights for my Tl01 drifter and subaru shell,

The finish is well..........CR*P but when the lights are on they look so real, because the lights are square and have a silver case behind like a real headlight.

the case was cut using kitchen scissors and a screwdriver to make the holes

but what do you guys think
