I finally got to go drifting today. I decided to run taped foam tires. It worked pretty good. The grip is between taped rubber tires and abs.

is a one-way good for drifting?

Some people like it especially for tight transitions. It takes alotof getting used to. Others are dead set against it. Try it out and see if you like.

I drift electric. Most of my cars are nitro though. I easily get 8-10 packs per set of taped tires. I use regular electric tape. I mainly use abs only on tarmac/street.

Has anyone had luck w/ abs plastic tires? I ran some on my YokomoBD on the race track, it was too loose and not enough forward traction. Any way I can cut the plastic to give it more grip?

Drifting really is pretty slow compared to racing and it seems like you're driving on black ice until you get the hang of it. Try tightening your diffs but have the front slightly looser than the rear. Also, use the 2 softest pairs of springs possible with the harder one in the rear. I've heard guys with the BD say it is best to run ball diffs in front and rear with a center one way. I hope this helps. Keep us up to date.

I read about guys that cut slots in the abs or pvc with a dremal for more traction
