Some quick help please....

My local track recently converted from Dirt Oval to carpet so I'm slowly learning the ropes on some of this stuff.

I've taken an interest to touring cars and want to convert one of them to drifting. I have a few sets of 2" ABS tires and need to pick up some wheels.

My question...Do I have to get ones that are advertised as 50mm? I see several that are 48mm and the Yokomo's at 52mm. Are they all the same in reality, only different manufacturer's measurements? Hate to order some and they be a little small, or large which I can true down I guess.

Any direction would be appreciated. Also...any great websites to get the coolest ones? Been to the obvious, Tower, Ebay etc...

Thanks.

most drifters use soft front and medium rear springs. i use super soft front and soft rear and max out to meduim rear. my hard springs never gets used, you dont really need those as you want to get some grip on those hard compound tires and not just keep spinning out.
That link is down. Can you point me to another link.

drifting a 4-tec with a posi rear. 911 gt body mechanical speed control and hi-torque motor 20t from my boat. getting a s15 and hpi te37 wheels there in the mail

i have a duratrax speed control in the mail also but i dont think it'll be any good for drifting due to the fact of the abs and traction control features.

basically, what u need to mod will only be the adjustable thing like adjustable arm and knucle, adjustable shock with soft spring at front and hard and back, trust me for TT01 only hard can drift smmoth and nicely. if u have extra money to spent than go get a set of TT01 front one way, still when time come u will feel TT01 can't do much even u have mod the steering. the biggest weakness for TT01 are too much freeplay every where, no metter how u mod it. so i guess it's not worth of wasting too much money on it hehehe....

Has anybody tried drifting on a linoleum floor?

Just for kicks I was driving my TC3 around in my building at work and found out that floor material is perfect for drifting. I had on an old pair of rubber slicks and the combo was near perfect. I had a blast and wanted to move all my equipment outside so I had more space, LOL!!!

I'm setting the TC3 up for Vintage Trans Am but I think it will work just fine for drifting "indoors" during my lunch break. This is the first time I tried drifting with an electric car, all my previous drifting was done on asphalt with my Nitro TC3, man it's way easier with electric.

As I remember it, Steve McQueen did some "old school drifting" in Bullet so my Shelby GT-350 body should look right at home. Not all drift cars have to be Japanese.

Default New to drifting and needing some help

I have a TC3 that Im trying to get into drifting with. I currently dont have a motor in it and I was wondering what anyone would recomend for starting out. Im thinking of a 19turn, but am unsure of single or double. I also have a one way diff in the front, is this the best setup to have, or should I be doing something different? Any help would be great.

a 19t or 15t will work well. double. the 1 way will work great, just tighten up the rear diff, you'll get an e-brake effect
