Lightbulb R/C DRIFTERS UNITE!!!

Hello and welcome to the r/c drifting scene. This thread was made for r/c drifters and for the people who are interested in Drifting. If you have a drift kit, you are welcomed to post your set-up such as; electronics, batteries, tires, ESC, and Controler. If you are new to drifting here is some history for you, drifting started in Japan and has made its' way the to USA. More and more people are getting interested in the "art" of drifting. Manufactures found out that customers made ABS/PVC tires, and put them on a AWD car. The manufacture named "yokomo" designed a kit for drifting, then HPI made a specific car for drifting, and now almost all of the manufactures have created kits just for drifting. R/C Drifting is very popular now, but most of it is in California. I would like to make a group for r/c drifters in the Midwest area. if you are interested please PM me. Well happy drifting!

Well if you want to get into r/c cars your going to have to start somewhere right? I picked a kit for you even thought you asked for a RTR. A kit will teach you everything about the car, such as how a differential works, and the steering works. I will find you a nice car that is a RTR, and it is new.

Pick Your Poison..hahaha


there is a RTR that you don't have to build!
