Default Hpi Sprint 2 Drift Hop-Ups

Hey guys,

I just bought a Hpi Sprint 2 Drift, and I was wondering what parts and hop-ups to buy? I will be drifting. I heard a one-way differential is good for drifting. I can't find one though. Can you guys suggest me some parts and where to buy them?

Thanks,
Falken

I was also wondering if I should upgrade to Hpi's drift meister motor? Is it good? If so, which should I get? (11T, 13T, 15T, 17T, 19T)

A one way will only allow your wheels to rotate when the opposite one is locked(front allows right to turn even though the left is stopped/slowing & A center allows the front to roll eventhough the rear is locked.

Its a love/ hate type of thing. I love center one ways, but hate front one ways.

What you will want is a 10.5t or lower brushless system(the 11-15t brushed will be ok, but watch your brushes. They get worn very quickly in drift. you are constantly on full throttle.), solid rear spool, and the softest springs you can find and 35wt shock oil. start with that.
