I don't understand all this thing about drift racing... Why get a drift car when you can get a nitro (or the contrary ? )

I didn't understand the drift thing, till I tried it. I'm never going to get rid of my race cars, but drifting is really fun and just another part of the hobby. Don't replace, just add. Something else to do while you're waiting for your electronics to cool or race batteries peak. A lot of fun and a lot harder than I anticipated.

Does a drift car need to be electric? my nitro will spin the wheels w/o drift rings or the special tires. Do they have to be 4wd?

Ah ah ah, it didn't surprise me at all, I can remember him doing a final of the 2WD worlds (after winning the first 2 legs, so he was already champion) driving with his feets and still winning

That's exactly my point mate, a nitro is already a drift car
