Default Drift Racing

I've been drifting for a couple of years now(off and on) and I find it very relaxing compared to racing. I even managed to win a drift competition in Chicago about a year ago. This year I convinced my local track owner to start a new drift racing class. It wasn't that hard to do, after a few exibition runs by me, everyone was really interested in trying drifting. Even some of the hardcore racers are running this class now. The rules are simple, run any motor, esc, body etc. Now some of the people have fully decked out bodies with lights, spoilers, underglow, intercoolers, mirrors etc. The only rule is we all run my homemade abs drift tires. Since you can't stop the regular race classes and have a regular drift comp we use transponders just like the "normal" racing classes. Drifter with the most laps wins and no you really can't cheat by not drifting cause there is not enough traction on carpet to drive the cars normally. Below is a little video from the GRD Performance open house that I won the competition at. The semi and the black Mercedes are mine.

Default how to fix drift tyre

Hi bro, wana ask you guys how you fix in drift tyre to your wheel. I found on youtube they are using a hot water to warm the tyre and freze the wheel. in the video they did until i heard "click". but i have no success to fix in.

My wheel something like this r2hobbies-com/images/rcvp3320061/01.jpg there is a lip (most) outside and (most) inside of the wheel. I tried to insert the tyre from outside of wheel, but the tyre stuck on the inside wheel's lip. If and I insert the tyre from inside of wheel, the tyre stuck on the outside wheel's lip. i pushed until my finger hurt like a hell

anyone succeeded, please advise. or did you guys just leave it like that? normally you fix in from inside of wheel or outside?

Thanks and happy new year to all.

I've personally never ran or mounted those tires. It looks like from your pics there is more of an angle on one side of the tire than the other. The angle cut is to allow room for the tire to clear the body when running alot of negative camber. As far a mounting them goes you have two options and I use both depending on the compound of the tire. If the tire feels like it has some rubber in it I use a hairdryer and heat the tire up from the inside then position them on the rim and let them set. After cooling I sometimes will run a bead of CA glue aroung the inside bead of the tire. The second method I use is for really hard tires with more of a plastic feel to them. I prefer to sand the edge of the rims down with a Dremel tool to make the tires slide on then apply a bead of CA around the inside bead. I've bought alot of rims and the height varies greatly from rim to rim. Also if you are glueing to chrome rims use the dremel to remove the chrome first.

ouch, this tyre more plastic than rubber. ok, i just did that, but i trimed the inside part of tyre. it can slide in, but i never thought using CA, and yes, it slide out back. Thanks for your advise

what uuup guys! im a newb to the rc drift world so dont hate lol. I race sc trucks and want to get into drifting. Ive been putting together a df03ra rally car and was wondering if i can maybe throw some stiffer springs on it and use it for drifting? i was going to get a drift box just to get used to it. So far it has full ball bearings, 3 racing shafts, and a hobby wing 9t/60a setup on a 2s 5000mah lipo. I was thinking it should do ok? just get some sushi drift tires? what do you guys think?
