if you have plenty of room and you want to do some high speed drifting use the HPI stage D nitro drift tires. #34501. if you want to do low speed drifting try the ABS drift tires, they don't offer much traction but do better for low speed driftiing or tight spaces, I just recieved a set of the nitro drift tires and its going to take a while to get used to how they handle, I am still new to the whole drifting thing so please take my suggestions with a grain of salt. lol

it is also helpful to lock ur front and rear diffs for drifting, use silly putty it works great!

hope this helps!

Default my 2 cents

as long as you watch you engine temp, while drifting you dont get very much air flow to the engine, and richen carb acordingly it will not cause any problems.
