Smile Can TB04 / TA06 setup to drift?

Hi all,

In the past I've played with TL / TA Shaft chassis cars (yeah long time ago). Recently I'm looking to go back in to the world of RC again, but possibly up to TB or TA chassis type.

May I ask if these two can be tuned to become drift cars? Or is it better to hold out until TB-04D or TA-06D comes out?

As I understand, choosing motors has effects on what type of ESC and other hardware you can use. Can somebody also kindly explain to me how to choose
these?

Much appreciated.

Drift tyres will make any car a drift car. Locked rear axle and either a one-way or a diff up front makes the slides more controllable. So there is no reason why you couldn't drift a Tamiya road chassis.

Dedicated drifting chassis have become quite specialised, and you can't mimic the extreme geometry and weight distribution on a "grip" car without spending a lot of money. But if you just want to slide the tail, any car will do.

The only thing you need to worry about when choosing an ESC is that it has sufficent current capacity to cope with the motor. The ESC details will say what motors it can handle. Drifting is usually done with relatively slow motors and because the tyres aren't gripping, doesn't put too much load on the ESC anyway.
