Post Need some help

I want to get into Street racing again. If I was able to get a HPI drift, could it be transfered to a non-drift car? Whats the differance between a Drift and a non drift?

If you're just racing on the street all you should really need to do is swap out the wheels and tires. I'm not totally sure what the differences between a drift and non-drift car are but I'm pretty sure its about placement of the electronics and batteries. But a tire swap should do you good.

I agree with rogueldr.
I think it will be ok if you choose racing tire.
And maybe you can change other setup to drive faster.

Tires and the position of the spool, but mainly tires.

Mainly tires. You run alot softer compound tired for racing. If you're running spools in the back most people run diffs in the back and either diffs or one-ways in the front.

If your car has been setup to run drift(super soft springs and low weight oils) you'll need heavier of both or your car will roll way too much in the corners and probably flip. The rest is just basic setup like any other car.
