This one is $9.99 for 4 sets plus $5 for S&H. Just wait up for him to put up another set for auction. Or you can PM him on one of the rc drift websites. He goes by the name Capsule21 or ChokuWingStar.

in other news... i had a reck (wich seems to happen everytime i drive my car, something breaks or falls off)

so me and my step-dad were drag racing, and i had a fast start on him, then we ended up sideby side, then he hit me, and my front left tire flew off, made his TC4 do a flip, and skidded to a stop, and i just 3 wheeled it to the finsih line)

well as you can see I race there... I got into RC for drifting, as of about 2 months ago drifting was not allowed on their carpet track, they have an asphalt track outside but im not sure if your allowed drifting there either... ive just switched from drifting to racing but i may switch back or maybe ill go 50/50 because i like them both... but fastcats is truly a great place and everyone there is nice so feel free to call or email them

John sr. and Pam run the show there so talk to them, john knows pretty much everything about RC...

I don't know what you're smoking but it says 4 set for a total of 16 drift tires.

Hello,

Has anyone tried drifting on carpet? What tires work on carpet?

We've tried ABS in the past and found it picked up traction compound and got sticky and there was a post saying that a damaged ABS tire could wreck carpet.

Thanks
