Throttle control is key and takes practice.

Just build moderate speed, make a semisharp turn and take your finger off the throttle.

Locking the rear will make a huge difference, check around and you will find lots of ways to do it. Just put something in the diff to stop the gears from transfering power. What car you running?

Interested to hear how long the paper towel holds up, never heard that one before but glad it's working for you now. Just keep at it and it will soon come to you, it takes time to learn how to drift. Good luck and have fun..

learn how to drift 50/50 first before you go into counter steer. you can play with the camber also, but try the locked diff first.

Try using hardening plumbers putty for locking the diff. It holds up great, and if you ever decided you want to unlock your diff, you can easily remove it and go back to stock. You don't really have to mess about with the camber settings and stuff if you're just starting out, just practice, practice, and practice. You'll start to get the hang of it quickly. Look up "rc drift tutorial" on YouTube, there are many helpful videos I've used to improve at drifting so far.

to start with keep all thos sorts of settings pretty basic(and even on each end/side) and get out and drive.....lots. you will start to get the hang of it and then start to adjust camber etc once you know the effects of those changes. a 2 cell lipo should see a stock motor skid pretty easily so get out and do it
