Default motor choice and set-up 4 drifting

hey everyone,

ive heard alot about drifting with rc cars and wanted to muck around sometimes myself. just wondering tho, how do you keep motors cool when drifting? ive tried a few times and they just fry..... i have lotsa older motors i can use and some with more than enough torque, but they all get really really really hot.... is this normal?? is there anything i can do about it??

i run an xray if that helps

Gear real low for drifting so you don't have too much wheel spin when your using PVC tires. Put negitive camber in front.
