Default New To Drifting - Suggestions and Tips?

Current setup is:

Chasis: Sprint 2 Flux with 1 way front differential
Motor/ESC: Novak Drift Spec Sensored 13.5T
Novak Glitch Buster
Stock Radio
Stock Reciver
Savox Servo

Tires: i have some HPI t Drifts but also some Traxxis Volk Racing

Generally running on Asphalt parking lot.

0 Camber 0 Toe

Is there anything here that you guys suggestion tweaking? i can get it sideways in the parking lot with ease but it seems videos i watch they seem to slide easier. Maybe its just the surface im on but im open to suggestions. Where i am from non of the RC stores do ON Road as its unpopular here so i dont have much resource for this side of RC.

Research "countersteer" it is pretty easy to do with the sprint chassis, you could also do the drive train swap, and to fix your sloppy steering do the solid screw mod on the drivers side bellcrank.

Counter steer is what is most are using in the vids u see to drift easier. Also set your camber to at least -2. That will help out also.

rc drift can be split into two 'classes'. 50/50 which basic 4wd like most rc touring cars,and counter steer which is still 4wd but the gearing(pulley wheels or gears)has been modified so the rear wheels spin faster than the front to enhance the rear wheel drive affect. 50/50 is nice and simple to set up and drive,counter is a little more tricky. it requires a very good understanding of the gearing and steering and suspension geometry of the chassis to get the cs working properly.
