Default Tips for Drifting?

I've drifted on a track for the 2nd time today, and I'm going to admit I suck!

In 2 hours, I only had 1 good run, where I didn't hit the track walls. And it seems my car goes beyond 180 degrees on S turns while drifting.

Any tips?

Just keep practicing. The more you drive, the better you will get.

What car are you drifting with?

I run 2 HPI Sprint 2's and a TT01E.

TT-01, as I said bone stock.

Rear locked, front loose.

Most ppl run TT-01's locked front and back. But when I tried that it got massive understeer.

Practice is the best advice.

I like to run a locked rear and a front one way (I used to run a TT-01 with that setup). Those two mods are very helpful for drifting, but it will drastically change the way your car drifts.

I run my TT01 with stock diffs and it does fine.

Is this because its good for my style?

How would a locked front or rear perform?

Sweet info guys, the problem is the closest guys to me that hold drift meets are like 1hour away. So I can't head down there a lot, which mean nots a lot of practice time.
