the yokomo D1 is a great drifter. most drivers use the stock motor. plenty of power for drifting

Look at the APS charger/dyno.

same price range but you get backlight and dyno.

www.magmarc.com for more info.

In all the magazines review on this car all they said it just just a normal r/c car with vinyl type tyres. The tyres is all that did it.

Inferno is correct. The last drift contest they had at my home track, guys were just wraping their rear tires with electrical tape and drifting it up. Worked well and when the contest was over they just removed the tape and ran as normal.

go to http://www.rcdrift.com/ as u can prolly tell, its a rc drift site. im sure a couple people from here also frequent there too. but as its a drift dedicated site, you will get better or more opinions and facts there. personally i drift a hpi rally and a xray t1r. both on pvc pipes. both handle great. rally for bumpy streets, xray for tracks.
