it looks likje you are running the Tamiya drift tires. Switch to the HPI tires. You will notice a big difference.

Those are HPI A Drifts. I have T Drifts but I left them at home next to my other camera and tripod. I was kinda really excited to run with the nice weather today .

I can tell by how abrupt your drifts are. T drifts are much better. BTW, here is some eye candy. and yes, this is my rc.

hey everyone. I just picked up a HPI Sprint 2 Drift yesturday and i am going to learn with this before i really start getting to serious lol. My first question is Tires? It seems like i slide out way to easy maybe its what it is supposed to do. Also can i adjust camber or do as other talk about and lock out front wheels or make rear bias? I am super new so if i am asking dumb questions just let me know. Also i hear some people say brushless or not i thought that mine is brushless?


Thanks,
Chris

Try a lower weight shock oil (to about 45) and drop that car! that ride height of 10mm is adding bodyroll and unstability.

to adjust toe and camber you need adjustable turnbuckles. if you do not have them, theyre rather cheap.

Define "too much". Many newbies have a tendency to mash and hold the throttle. Drifting is constant on/off throttle.

I most likely am mashing lol. I am still trying to learn to CONTROL the drift and not just sliding around. What tires do you recommend? Did I choose a good starter drift car? I have also been reading up on different batteries lasting longer or making the car faster. And trying to find a charger to charge faster then 6 hours lol.

Thanks for the help,
Chris

I get that response quite a bit hahaha, i raised the front so when on power the weight will transfer to the rear.

Keep in mind, be cautious when you play around with camber - it can change how your car drives quite a bit. Go for a hard compound tire such as HPI Tdrifts or some Streetjam Hard tires - both can be purchased at rc-race-and-drift.com (under the drift section) As for a charger, buy an imax B6 and a few 5000mah lipos from hobbyking, that would keep you going for a long time = more practice for you

i agree. I read so many posts that say "I run 8* camber, its mad JDM bro" and they not only run through tires every few runs but they have stability issues. Countersteer is the only reason why people should consider 8* camber/10* caster. but the benefits of being conservative with your setup completely out weighs the coolness factor. Ask anyone who countersteers REGULARLY how often they go through motors, or can never get gearing right, or have esc/motor temp issues...
