Drifting is fun! That's how i started out and learned how to drive with my rc first starting out. But I have to admit... once i grew out of it i wondered why i ever did it. No one in my area drifted so... no point really for me.

Default Drifting

Anything is pretty boring if there's no one to "play" with. I'd rather try to get my car to drift if I'm with myself in my cul-de-sac than running fast in circles... lol...

Grip racing is cool 'cause you go way faster than drifting.

Drifting is cool 'cause you're trying to get your car to go sideways around turns... Drifting is also cool 'cause the people involved in it take more time fixing up the bodies. You know, getting the led lights in with the light buckets, getting cool looking rims, cool looking paint jobs that imitate real drift cars...

If you drift with ABS, you definitely go slower than drifitng with specially made drift wheels by yokomo or HPI. Check out http://www.driftrcentral.com for more info on that stuff...

Drifting is much more intense when you have a group of people, drifting around in parking lots and cones by yourself is good for practice but laying out a track with a few buddies makes it worth wild.

We got a couple fullsize car drifting events comming up over the next few months around here so im hoping to get some r/c guys out there and get some rc action going..
