Really slow forum but lots of info.

The lower the turn generally the higher the speed so if your top speed with a 27 turn is say 18mph, you can initiate a drift around 17.5 mph but unless you get speed killing angle you won't be able to hold it, with a 15 turn top speed is now around 25, you can initiate around 24 and the same applies yet you are at a higher rate of speed without really killing low end.

Drifting requires the rear tires to lose grip with the road surface, so the less grip they have, the better. The type of track you are attempting to drift your remote control car on has a large influence on the type of tires you need. Indoor or temporary tracks can be made of foam tiles, offering little grip. On foam tiles standard tires can be used for drifting; asphalt offers more grip and hard plastic tires are recommended. Special plastic covers are available that are clipped over your standard tires and are ideal for drifting.
