Thanks thedudeaturdoor. I'll look into the HPI tires, it's hard for me to test though, as it's a temporary track that's not up yet.

Has anyone tried Tamiya TA04 kit tires? I don't expect them to work well for either grip or drift, but it'd be good to know it they are worth mounting.

Default hawaiian kind drift and rally fun

finally threw together some footage from 5/06. sorry, some footage came out crappy, so i didn't want to include it where the camera guy (mostly me) was out of control and also had some swearing. i did not want to edit anything and don't think i did.

NOTE:might be better if you download and save the video then watch it as it is 13megs long.
NOTENOTE:not sure why the video speed seems to be a tad slowed down. oh well.
NOTENOTENOTE: my faster ftc4 has been altered for grip so i don't have footage of it and had to put in my way slower/slippery old shortarm TL01.

Hi guys, I have being drifting with a TA-04R, and it's not a bad car to drift with. I drift with PVC's, and haven't have the chance to try with ABS yet. I am running spool in the rear and front oneway for slide the rear out at higher speed with light braking. I am running soft sprngs up front (Tamiya red), and medium or hard (yellow or white tamiya springs) at the back. It's pretty amazing how long I can hold the drift. Is ABS suppose to have higher grip? I have tried the first Yokomo ring style, and didn't like it much. I have also tried those from HPI, but they are just too soft. They required much higher speed, and I can't hold the drift nearly as long. Anyone try those from Tamiya yet?

thanks.

abs is better because its softer, thus giving more grip than the pvc pipe which is harder

when u wear it down the abs pipe actually becomes better or air"y" and a bit more "grippy"



i havent heard any feedback about the tamiya drift tires yet, but im thinking they would be best

Thanks, yeah from the magazine review, the tamiya tires looks promising. Do you guys run front diff or oneway? The only complain I have regarding with oneway is hard to keep the car going straight with pvc.....
