Default D-Spec vs D-Box

Has any used either the HPI D-Box or Turnigy D-Spec on their rc drift car? Im wondering if the HPI is worth the huge price difference and if either actually work as they claim?

Drifting must come from your fingers and not from a piece of electronics.

if it's an rwd drifter, then a gyro is pretty much needed.
cs or 4wd - no need for gyros

Use the d-box to learn how to drift. Try driving without it some, and try it at different settings. Eventually your driving ability will get good enough that you don't need it. It takes a while to get really good, but it takes a while to get a car dialed in too. I have no experience with a rwd rc drift car, but I have 28+ years of racing experience, and I would bet if you had a really dialed rwd rc drift car that you could drift it without a d-box. I can drift my 2wd buggy on med grip clay all day long. You just have to get the car so it slides consistently. If you are really good at driving you can feel what the car is doing.

What car are you running?
