It don't matter, it just simply changes how the car responds to steering.

In the end, its preferential what kind of front setup you like. So just try out different front "diffs" coz you may like one style better than another.

Just downloaded the latest drift video of frequency-rc and was just wondering if anyone on this forum was involved with that video. If so what were you all using i.e. motor,set-up,tires.

Thanks

P.S- Sweet drifting
I was one of those who drove in the SG vids.

Unlike some of the guys in this thread who prefer powerful motors, most of us in the video drove 23T or silvercan motors.

Setup was basically the setup we used when racing grip. Only minor adjustments were done to get the car to handle better during drifting.

Tires were all PVC pipes cut to thickness and pushed onto rims. Check out my previous replies to this thread for more info.

I drove the NSX in the night shots in vid 2 and the Apex RX-7 in the vid 3. You can check the credits coz I use Entropy everywhere.

You should start by driving slow, coz if a car is going too fast, there is more inertia to overcome when changing directions. Check page 2 of this thread for some tips I posted on controlling your car in mid drift.

Not sure which part you are talking about, coz there was one part I just drove for fun and didn't drift much (with 3 other cars). I did drift in the other shots though.

I used a TA04 with a 23T motor. Front camber was 1.0 deg, rear camber 1.5 degrees. Tamiya whites springs on the front and blues on the rear. Its basically my racing setup too coz I just slap on the PVC tires and drift when I'm in the mood.

I was running PVC all the way. That one scene (with 4 cars) where I didn't seem to drift is coz I was just mucking around with my friends trying to grip drive with PVC

The tamiya whites are the hard springs and the blues are the medium hards. This is followed by the yellows (medium soft) and the reds (soft).

Here's a pic of my drift/racing TA04 in the pits in preparation for another race.

I don't even want to remember how much I spent on the TA04, but it probably costs more than my Pro4 by now :P The only reason why I went crazy is coz its a personal project, Blue. I plan to put it up on display with its carbon fibre chassis (tub seems to be more suited for current race conditions, for me) when its racing days are over.

My car weighs in at about 1530 with batts and bodyshell. If I use a lightweight bodyshell, it should come in about 1500 flat which is just right for racing.

p.s. you ain't seen my other blue equipment yet.. (pulsar, fans, ex-10 etc...)

WOW

After seeing those vids I think i want to get a car to play with at my track and drift.

What cars should i look into?
anything good from tamiya? what about yokomo?

I currently run a Mugen as my main race car, but I have heard there is a tamiya stock class at my local track that i will like to run, so maybe i can kill two birds with one stone?

Hey -

I don't have time at the moment to view all the posts, but is there someone who can help me find the info for the "driftz" pre-made PVC wheels? I am trying to locate some for my local track....

I saw them on ebay but I am having trouble re-locating them.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

Dave
