if you're going to join any drift competitions, take note to pick a body that represents a read wheel drive two-door car... this will ensure your car is eligible and that you dont get ridiculed by drift fans...

Default Drift TC3, now for the Body?

What touring cars are actually 200mm, My old DS's look the best, but I want the same look for a Drifter car. thx for the feedback everyone.

most eletric cars are 190mm, and nitros 200mm

im sure there are exceptions

if u want a "wide body" effect get a 200mm

it looks ok but u should run off sets on ur rims is ur gona go with a 200mm

Default Im a roookie on here for sure

But I can drive, I raced off road Buggies for ten years, the good tracks are too far away and I got tired of maintaining my own. So let's Drift. Is it a race thing or is it judged like the gymnastics. Im gonna start with a 65 Fastback Mustang body. I really want to open a Drift club here in NW phoenix.
