Thanks for the comments guys. This was our first attempt in editing and creating a video.

Super Steve: Although most of us had Yokomo tires, we didn't use them because one of the individuals didn't have them during the filming. We'll soon have another video from various locations using Yokomo tires.

Awesome video!

If you do another one I'd like to see a whole race, instead of 1 lap at a time.

BTW, what kind of tires did you use then? Just pvc on rim?

also, are the Yok wheels worth it or are the pvc tires the way to go?

I could easily see a 1/10 drifting class in racing. Just think what a change it would be, speed-wise, from the mod class!

They'd have to regulate the tires or something though, so nobody has a grip advantage.

have to be a max weight limit too because a heavier car would stick to the track good and also use a certain tire like said..know it mfg gain but make the yokomos mandatory. But question...you could do this with any car right? xxx-s tc-3 etc

Thanks for the comments again.

For this particular session, we were using pvc to assure that our performance was all similar versus using other material such as electrical tape or the half plastic/rubber (yokomo tires).

I must say, the Yokomo tires should not be mandatory given the fact that there is an apparent grip advantage for yokomo tires that have been worn down significantly as compared to tires that have fresh plastic rings. At the moment, my yokomo tires have been worn down so much to the point where I attain undesired grip.


In short, PVC is the best way to reassure that every car will perform similarly. It is almost given that a car running worn down yokomo tires will out run a car running pvc tires.

Some individuals have been developing new concepts to apply to organized RC circuit drifting which rules will be adopted to those used in the D1GP (japanese professional drifting circuit). If I'm not mistakened, it already has occured in Japan as seen by the speedway pal guys. Sure enough, it will start to develop here in the states seeing that the popularity is increasing.

Here are some rules that will be adopted from the D1GP circuit. These are the rules that we have adopted during our sessions.

Courtesy of www.d1gp.com:

"How is drifting judged?

Because professional drifting events are judged on execution and style, it is mandatory that the judges are intimately familiar with the capabilities of the cars and the advanced driving techniques employed by the competitors. D1 Grand Prix judges are usually former professional drifters.

These expert D1 judges evaluate speed, angle of attack and vehicle control. All drivers make solo runs before "Best 16" head-up eliminations start. The competitors who make it to the Best 16 run door handle-to-door handle, going against one other car on the circuit at the same time. As fun as the solo runs are, these drift showdowns really ignite the crowd and brings the crowds to their feet.

Factors like slowing to the point of hindering the other driver, running into another car or spinning out mean an automatic loss of the run. To advance to the next round, drivers use tactics such as putting pressure on an opponent through a more aggressive drift angle, carrying a higher speed through a corner, and showing good strategy. Judges are thoroughly familiar with the capabilities of each competitor's car and if the driver is not pushing the car to the limit, they will be eliminated from the round."

As for the TA03:
It's pretty much bone stock aside from the adjustable turnbuckles. All of us are running 27 turn stock motors, although a brushless would be nice.
