this is a relative cheap way of making your car dirft....


but on taped tires cars are unstable
the tape doesnt last long and shreds meaning you car will gain grip very quickly


abs or pvc are still the only way to drift properly.

yes i kno they will shred very easy.
i was just saying IF you dont have the money and just want to have a bit of funn with ur car this is the way too goo.
but the best places to drift without the tape ripping is
tiles or timber floors like i have.

If money is a issue then why waste time and money on tape.
Just go down to local gardening shop and see if they have DPE irrigation pipe.
It has teh same ID as a rim OD, you just cut it with a hacksaw and file it down to width you need or if you go past a machine shop you can ask if they wont mind turning a couple out for you on a lathe.
The DPE is softer than PVC and is a nice balance between no grip and too much grip.
Its black too so looks like tyres.
