Hi Stefano,

Your work is awesome, but I can't tell which one is your drift body. They ALL look so cool!!

I'm new to Drifting too. I'm trying to convert my old V-One-R into a drift kit. But I don't know what tyres to use for nirto drift. Is the HPI StageD tyres any good?? I intend to play on asphalt, can anyone help me??

Thanks.

nice pics. good looking car. I took my Tamiya TA05 to the track last night and did some drifting for the first time. Just electrical taped tires and stock silvercan. Lots of fun, but it sure looks easier than it is.

For nitro I would suggest drift radials.

HPI, Yokomo, and Pit Shimizu all make drift radials.

But, if the HPI StageD tires are the easiest for you to find, you would probably be fine with those.

So, what turn motor?

If you are running around a 19t motor look into the Yokomo Zero-One "R" drift tires. Or even some ABS tires.

But, if you are running a brushless or mod turn motor then maybe look into some drift radials, you will get a little more traction over traditional drift tires so you won't be spinning out all over the place.

Ok, I look for these tyres. HPI had a radials tyres, but is very HARD. Feels like PVC. I think is more for EP kits. I'll see if I can find the HPI or Pit shimizu's rubber tyres.



Stefano,

What Bunsincunsin means is tyres with lines.
Anyway, I'm going to paint myself a RX-8 Drift body. Let's post it up in the painting fourm when we are done.

Well even for nitro you are going to want a harder compound tire for drifting. The drift radials are not as hard as PVC, ABS, Yokomo Zero-One, etc. But they are not as soft as regular tires/radials.

The radials allow some traction but not too much(which is what you want for high rpm drifting).

I prefer electric, I've never messed with nitro, but I know it's loud and can get messy. As far as the ready to run kits, the popular one I hear about is the TT-01. towerhobbies has many of these with some good promo codes. Worth checking out. They have the TT-01 Drift spec kit too.

I would deffinatley go with electric.

But as far as RTR's go you don't have much of a selection. I know of a couple that you might want to check out....

HPI Sprint 2:

Tamiya TT-01:
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXNUD2&P=0

You would also need a set of drift tires.
