Get a solid rear diff ASC1703 (best option and what I use) or use hot glue around the balls to lock it fully. Then tighten the front diff and tighten it just to the point were both wheels spin the same way. I use HPI T-Drifts they are awesome and ive heard some people also like the HPI A spec drift tyres too for higher speed drifting.

I gotta tell you the Cyclone can drift rings round a TC3, I could never get mine setup right when I started drifting in '04, springs were the most important with non rubber tyres and camber was just final tuning

The best drifter I had was my ancient Losi Street Weapon, it just worked even with standard diffs but like before springs were the major tuning point, soft as possible up front and slightly stiffer rears - oil wasn't so important. I was so amazed by this car I started a drift forum for others in the UK

You'll love the cyclone once it's setup right
