Check out the SG Drifters videos here
http://www.frequency-rc.com

My friends and I made those videos, we didn't use any powerful motors, in fact most of us were on mabuchi/johnson silver cans or 23T motors. Only 1 was actually using a novak brushless with the throttle endpoint tuned down.

enjoy.

we haven tried those..yokomo products are slow in singapore.

also the drifting population in singapore isnt big so most of us can settle wif pvc( more even performance)

Been practicing my drift skills and finally showed off a little at a car show we were displaying at. I have never seen so many people get excited about RC !! Our club got 2 new members out of it and both bought cars to set up for drifting. I've found no reason to use any high tech chassis or motors. I use a TT-01 or TL-01 with a can motor and abs tires with no problem at all. I am going to experiment with a little tape on the front tires though. Would like to carry more speed on entry to turns but right now the front end will wash out and I'll slide out to the pipes before I can get the car turning and drifting. I'm actually surprised anybody uses a 1 way.......the cars are "on power" so much that the 1 way must surely be engaged almost all the time. Does it work?? Also, found that if you radius the edges of the pvc or abs tires, they stay on the rims better if you're not gluing them on. I like to press fit them. The non radiused edges will tend to push the rim toward the center of the chassis because of the friction against the flat edge.

ive been drifitng for quite a while on pvc. less friction easy drifting. to drift, lotsa negative camber helps a lot when you are on rubbers. on pvc it helps too to keep from catching all the imperfections. i drift my hpi erally and xray t1r easily. it really practices your throttle finger and i think it helps your driving skill considerably. and you can keep a drift going forever until the batteries die if you want. it just takes a bit of practice or skill
