Default Redcat Racing Drift package

Anyone come cross this? $149 rtr redcat drift car. Chassis looks pretty good, looks like an hpi body, think the wheelbase maybe off a little. Prices are great! Was wondering if it was worth it for a beater…

Honestly Nitro cars dont make the best drifters. Yes there are people that drift with Nitro, but if you go to the actual drift forums, (www.groovydrift.com) you will see that 99% of the drifters are electric.

As for the quality of the nitro car, I cant help you maybe someone else will recognise what that is. The shell is HPI and they are great quality.

Well yeah. Some places do refer to it as drift racing though, but I think I agree with you.

i dont touch the nitro cars step dad had wont and after jumping the gate with it and braking a window. i have not touched one sense. i guess they would do ok. you can adjust for less top and more acc easier. but i say elc is the way to go on drifting. its a tire where thing.

Its still hard to say. RedCat is still mostly unknown. I would reccomend getting a plastic tub version of one of HPI or Hot Bodies cars. Have a look at the Cyclone-S. Or a Sprint 2 Drift. Here is a link to a Cyclone Drift.

If you are not into HPI then have a look at a TC5 or TC4 from Associated. Losi has an RTR drifter that is excellent. Tamiya has several cars that will drift with just a change of tires. Some have lights on them. Yokomo is always a fan favorite. Take your pick. Dont be set on the Red Cat.
