Default Have I got everything?

Hey guys,

Looking at buying my first RC drifter in the next week or so from RCmart.

added everything i think i need to the cart, just want to check with the pro's that im not missing anything, so that i'm not sitting here with everything waiting on 1 bit that i missed originally haha.

let me know if there is anything i need to add/change to the order

please and thank you in advance.

cheers,

Luke

I'm not familiar with that car to know what you'll need. Bearings, c hubs steering blocks, rear hubs and belts would be a good start.

Its a drift car not a race car The stuff you ordered seems fine. I would also add a belt tensioner to your list and maybe some different pulleys to change the countersteer ratio and some extra drift tires and rims.

OK, I'll be the third then.

25+ years experience with rc cars, have owned several hundred cars, was editor of an r/c car magazine for over 10 years.

And that car you're considering was far and away the WORST car I have ever owned - no contest.

It's your money mate but I wouldn't recommend that car to my worst enemy.

What are the problems? 3 of my friends purchased them. 1 converted to rwd and is very happy. Another drifted it, loves it and now is deciding to sell his ta05 conversion. My other friend received his in the first batch and appears to have a missing motor mount. I've drifted one and it handles very nicely.
