yes I used to drift but the TC3 sucks at it hehe. Make sure when drifting ur tires are like this. /---\ well the front tires I mean. they also have a site and a forumn you can join I believe its www.rcdrift.com. About shocks you want totally stiff shocks no absorbing. To start off, start goign straight with your car and swerve side to side. Hope this helps

Hmm, no wonder you were having a hard time drifting. I drift with a TC3 and the other guys I've come across on the drift boards use a set up with no camber all around, 2-3 toe in rear, no toe in front, softest springs as possible with the softer springs in the rear and set the ride height to highest possible. I use a front one way and a spool in the rear. I think it works a little better than having a ball diff in rear. Or maybe my ball diffs were just too loose 'cause other people seem to drift fine with ball diffs in the rear. To each his own, I guess... You just gotta mess with the settings until you find the one that works right.

99.9% of us here are more concerned with getting more traction, not how to take it away....

Probably a motor with lots of torque. You want to break the tires loose as soon as you can.

My dirft setup:

1 deg camber front and rear
1 deg toe front, 1 deg rear
5mm ride hieght
Locked front and rear ball diffs
Kawada 23T
Speedi V3 drift tyres

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
