Default Drift vs OnRoad

Anyone know if taking the two genres can be merged? As in buy one Drift car, take off the gyro, swap wheels and then run it for OnRoad or take the front wheel belt off from OnRoad and add a Gyro and run it?

Just curious.

They definitely can. But will you get the top performance out of them when compared to a purpose build track or drift car no. You can take any touring car and used it for drift, same way you can take a drift chassis and mount some rubber and take it to the track. But for the most part it will be out done by other chassis purpose build for track or drift.

Taking a Touring car and taking the front belt off and trying to run a RWD drift car will never work. The touring car does not have enough steering angle / throw to do that.

In both cars there is no need for a gyro.

In rwd drift chassis a gyro is almost always used. True you could become skilled enough to drift without one but not everyone takes the time to do so, so most just use a gyro to help them.

There is the Yokomo YD2TC. It's was their RWD drift car. Then recently released as a RWD touring car

Any touring car can be made to drift. Set of drift tires and good servo. Going the other direction it's not as easy.
