Works awsome, but really with some good tyres it dont matter what your setup is, it will drift.

Check out this video, I just made it

thanks for the halp and awsome video.
one question. have you ever used the abs/pvc piping for tires? most of the people on drift forums recommend abs piping to make your own drift tires.

Better yet, get a Novak Brushless 4300 system. Plenty of torque and cheaper than the 5800. Thing is, it is $170. I don't know if you have that kind of cash to blow on something you're not sure you'll really stick with. It'll save you money in the long run. No need for all that maintenance that a brushed motor goes through. Plus, I'm sure more and more club racing will be done with brushed motors eventually.

any electric 4wd car can drift

SETUP WILL NOT MATTER AT ALL IF YOU USE ABS OR PVC TIRES

i really think the best drifter made was the xxx-s rtr. All i did was put some ABS tires and i was able to have that thing drift 2 cars long. The xxx-s also won the first rc drift competition.

As for setup just make sure the tires have a reasonable amount of camber...basically leave it at 0. If it is negative chamber you might find yourself having to replace tires more often.

I saw a rc drift race once and the newly painted pit bench right next to me dried first before they even finished the lap they were on.

Yea any 4WD touring car can drift, I sometimes just use a standard 540j stock motor and it still drifts perfectly and last 3x as long on a battery

Yea ABS tyres are the best for drifting, but if you don't want to make your own the Yokomo Zero 1R are the best, or if your in NZ or AU I would recomend Speedi V3 drift tyres, they are NZ made, very slippery, as I say, works fine with just a 540j and they last FOREVER, I have been on my first set for over a year, ohh and there cheap, $40NZD www.speedimodels.co.nz email stephen and he will most likly ship worldwide if the buyer pays shipping
