I drift.

CS Drifting has a very different feel, and it is harder. It is more realistic however, and worth it all in the end.

I run a 73% CS Front Mid Motor Mod Sprint 2.
10T Front Pulley
16T Rear Pulley

You can drift just about anything thats 4WD and has drift tires. That would be fine I'm sure. Just get out there and drift

I am thinking of turning a ta05 i have on the shelf into a drifter,
my question is do i set it up with heavy oil and stiff springs or light oil and soft springs.

Thanks Limey

Light oil and soft springs. For 50/50 drifting, generally lighter 20/30 wt up front and 30/40wt for rear, even just 30wt is a good place to start. Soft springs up front and slightly stiffer in rear. Vice-versa for CS drifting.

Unfortunately not many drifters in Calgary... Although I keep hearing rumors that there is a group of people that get together in parkades to drift. But it can only happen during spring/summer when the parkades are clean. if you havent been to calgaryrc.com then maybe try there.

The tt01 used to be a very popular platform for rc drifting. It doesn't take much to make one drift.. if you can, try to get a tt01d. The D comes with bearings, alum center shaft, oiled filled shocks, etc etc.

Boza..I disagree..I have been drifting for over 6 years and have learned that for 5050, you DO want to run softer suspension but 30wt is the max I would go shockoil wise..to keep it easy, run 20/25/30 shock oil ALL 4 shocks. And for springs, you want to run softs in the rear and something SLIGHTLY stiffer in the front. Shock positions will be up to you but I have always had my fronts stand more vertically then the rear. For preload/ ride height, you want to have the rear "squat"/lower then the front. This will allow you to retain any grip you have due to the lack of grip due to the drift tires.. it will also make your car stable and easy to control.

Running stiff in the rear and soft in the front will just make your car twitchy and slow..the goal in tuning a 5050 is to try to retain grip and make it stable so you can maneuver the car anyway at anytime. Once you perfect setup.. you'll see how useful it is during tandems.

For CS, tuning is a completely different story, you guys can refer to www.csjunkies.com for countersteer setup. Katsumi, the guy that sells Yokomo through Driftspeed is on here. If you have trouble contacting katsumi, please conact me and I will be able to help.

Default Drift LED kit

Hey guys,

Im looking for a drift LED kit. I would like to put it on a TT-01 but I know that really doesnt matter. What does matter is finding the right one. I like the kits bye the SD hobby guys but can only find the videos, the store link is down. Let me know if you know a good place to get a great under-body kit and a great headlight taillight combo with a bunch of fancy flashing!

Thanks!
