I've never drifted before, but there are some tips that can be applyied to racing in general. The first is, Slow is fast. Intentionally retard the speed of the car. Either by gearing it down, or using a 4 cell battery to cut down top speed. And then practice. Your lap times should improve from there.

i drift a tt01 before.

at first i use all stock, but lock front and back, it drift good but can't keep in drifting mode all the time, it either over or under.

so i change the bearing, the run feel better but still can't keep in drift mode.

send i change the adjustable arm for front and rear and play abit of the camber and the toe, front toe out about 2 to 3 degree, camber for front -1 rear -0.5. than i drift nicely but still when come to flip 1 corner to other corner , it under steer.

3rd hop up, adjustable oil shock, set it to front soft and rear hard (for begginer, rear hard are more easyer to initial drift), never since i drift happyly.

hope this can help.

spool the front and rear diffs, soft springs and sway bars, toe in 3* in the rear, drift tires and manage your FDR. like the guy said above slow is fast.

lock your rear, one way in the front.

as much power as your car will handle. hahaha... nah. something with good power and slower, torquey gearing.

Type T hpi drift tyres.

Works with damn near every car.

Suspension hardly matters. the best, easiest cars in the world can be stock springs with stock bloody air-friction dampers. alloy looks cool though.

Minimalist approach to start with. go up from there.

Spool in the front? You mean one-way?

That is pretty much how I've setup every drift car I've had and they work great.

The only suspension thing I would do is put the softest springs I can get in the front and the next softest in the rear. The reason for this is that most of the drifting I have done have been on less than pristine surfaces and you need something to accommodate the bumps in the road since the tires are not going to help with that!

Spools are just like locking diffs right? I've tried locked front and rear. Didn't like it, too much understeer.

The spool and one way is really personal preference, but spool indeed makes car understeer in slow speed condition.

Here I am running with regular VTA track day setup with F/R ball diffs and soft rubber tires... car runs wider, but on a slippery floor u can still get it to drift..

spool is when you take the ball bearings and replace it with bicycle tire patches or any material to replace the bearings. i started tightened ball diffs on a cyclone TC and when i got the xray spooled front and rear diffs, now standard one way for the front and spool rears. some find it hard to drift or keep drift on front one way but starters use spool then front tightened ball diffs after they get better. below is a diagram from another forum on how to spool ball diffs, its off an xray but any ball diff will have the same internals to be removed and covered with the tire patch.

to remedy understeer with two locked diffs, increase steering angle (by means of cutting bits if you have to), add more power, and harden the rear more.

i do this with a bloody TL-01 and it's the best thing. ever.

beats the shit out of cyclones.

I SO hope someone bitches about that comment.
