Convert To Drift?
Hey whats up? I have an old HPI RS4 RTR, and I have done some upgrades to it, like 2-speed, OS .12cv-rx, high flow headers, nova mega tuned pipe.
Well all it does is sits in my living room and I never use it.
I was wondering what I need to convert it to a car that can drift. I personally dont like the idea of drifting R/C cars, I dont know whta all the hype about it is, but if this is the only way I will get use out of the RS4, and turn some heads at the track in the process then I don't mind it.
So right now I have these super hard compound Ellegi rubber tirs on it and they do drift on my drive but my drive way is smooth concrete I dont know if it will act the same on treated smooth asphault.
If I get some 2.5 inch PVC pipe and cut it those should provide enough slippage to drift right?
Everything else is all set, my car has the power for it, I'm getting a hump pack to ballance the weight evenly instead of all to one side (currently using a revo pack strapped to one side).
Does the body play an important part in drifting? I know HPI has those "drifting" bodies but they look like the regular silvia's, 350z' and rx7's with flashy paint jobs.
thanks for your time and help.
