I converted my tc3 to rc drift, it is now retired.
1st make sure all your outboard bearing are good.
use abs for tires. home depot has them for 5 dollars for 10 feet.
start with a 27 turn motor.
diff should adjusted equal. or have the front slightly tighter.
you can have 0 degrees front camber, iv'e heard of 1 1/2 degres negative
for technical sections you should gear up. (larger spur gear, smaller pinion)
slam on a nice d1 body and rims and your good to go.

theres a bunch of us over here that in between races or during the lunch break, we slap on some home made drift tires,(pvc pipe). many diff cars, from 04-05 xray, to tc3-tc4 etc. it makes the car and equipment really, prety much irelevent. all about driving. fun for the spectators to wacth 5-6 cars all sliding around courners, into walls etc. best part is, its almost imposible to break a part, not really goin fast enough
