Here is a pic of the cars from the magazine.. same article as the drift tires!

If im not mistaken, most the tamiya bodies have pretty good detail... So not sure if that would bump the cost up so much..

I will find out today at the track..

Ok....
I talked to a couple of the Yokomo team drivers at the track today (Really nice guys btw!!!)..

21800 yen gets you everything, chassis, body, rims, super drift tyres, 2 wings, muffler, brake rotor, wipers and air intakes..

The body isnt that hot, just plastic all the way, but its all you need for drifting.. Looks a little like the new CGM special chassis..

Should be out here in Japan around the 26th of Dec

They also had an advert that i grabbed... pic is attached.

Really nice Alch!
I think it's just a cheaper version of the CGM, wihout alu. shocks, antiroll bar, Ti turnbuckles.....
So the body is made of ABS or something like that???

Yes, I think I can get the AE86, RX7, these are from SpeedWay PAL, which is also an aftermarket manufacture for Alex Racing R2 sedan which we distribute. I can check on a price

I'm also a drift freak without a RWD!

Yes drifting is an art and it ain't easy to master either! requires a lot of skills!

Anyways, Yokomo are bringing out a drifting kit! It's all in the tyres they use for the kit. It's really hard ABS type plastic (super glue pvc pipe to unwanted rims and you'll get the same effect).

The good thing about it is because it's quite realistic with the way the car hangs and how you can switch ends with the on/off power method done on real cars.

Like real cars, it takes quite alot of hours mastering it. Practise by laying out really tight hats and draw figure 8's on the ground.

Was there with Alch when Naito (Team Yokomo driver) was doing it to my SD. Awesome!
