Default Chicago area rc drifters

Whats up fellow rc drifters. Me and a friend have been working hard on building up rc drifting in the midwest. It's very big overseas and also Cali but just hasn't taken off here. I think it just needs more exposure. We started a rc drift club in the area and are looking for members. We have many get togethers, shoot videos, and attend competitions sponsored by nos energy drinks. If anyone wants to come check it out please reply. Were about an hour west of Chicago. There's also a club in Chicago called Midwest slidewayz if your closer to that area. We try to get up with when we can because they have a large group of people that meet regularly. Also check out us on YouTube Midwest Drifterz

How far west?

I'm in West Chicago and work in St. Charles at the HobbyTown. Got a TC3 RTR (second hand freebie!) that is slowly being converted into a drifter as well as a Traxxas 1/16 "Ralliestangdra" that is currently powered by a 1/10 VXL System.

Westcoast bump... and how did you get NOS drink sponsorship for your meets? Trying to grow the Seattle scene, and local hobby shops are deaf, dumb and blind when it comes to RC drifting.

Default Nos sponsors

I know how it is with the local hobby shops there the same way out here. I'm in the same boat trying to grow the local scene. I think if you contact nos though fb or something and if you have enough people they'll be up for it I can find out more for ya we do have this comp out here but that's it and the competition is pretty weak. I wish there were better people rather than more people
