I still think guys like you miss the point.

1/1 D1GP goes around 170~190KM/H max, in very, very fast combo's.

If i drift on the carpet at the club i'm in, in wide corners i'm going to my mere estimate around 17 to 20 KM/H, wich is the speed cars drift at. Realisticly seen as speed should be divided by 10 for tenth scale.

At that speed a grip racer with stock motor goes a tiny bit faster trough those corners.

It's not about going 30+ in RC-Drift but about beating other guys using the same drift tires.


This is ofcourse only my opinion, you may not agree.

i see what your saying but my 1/10 is capable of just under 90kph, so at scale that would be 900kph!

when i drift my real car (which is not a race car and i am nowhere near a race driver) it's usually at about 50kph, though its hard to say when the speedo says 120, lol

all i'm saying is I want to race high speed drift. if nobody else does thats fine, i just though there might be a few people who feel the same and know of a good set of 40-50kph drift tyres
