Default Tamiya TT-01 Drift

Hay i have a TT-01 D and it is currently running stock apart from the fact that i have locked the rear diff,

i am running home made pvc wheels for drifting and im looking for a softer compound that i can use, has anyone found something softer with a 53mm id?

the reason for this is due to the fact i have just orderde a hobywing 5.5T brushless with ESC and a digital remote & reciver, alloy propshaft, and alloy stering arms.

i know the pvc will have no chance of getting any grip if i put road tyers on i can get between 32kmh and 40kmh so it will be intresting to see how fast it will go and this been done before? dose any one have ant tips for me?

Nice one:-) getting those speeds out of the tt01 is pretty impressive.
Do you have any shaft steer issues with the 5.5t ?

I hope you are still loving the car, cheers.
