Checked out the Yokomo site and they are using special tires, they have rings that I imagine are super hard that are installed in the tire.

I can tell you that InitialD does not or hardly ever drifts his car ... hahahahaha ... he does not believe in wasting rubber on the track!

I have seen some drivers drift their RC cars on big tracks, the car drifts like 2/3 of the corner (medium sized ones not a small one) and it looks cool but at the expense of tire wear. Not really worth doing at all ...

I've been told that drifting can burn your clutch though. Was told that in a different forum.

Most drifting is done with electric cars, but I have never burned a clutch drifting in my nitro one, granted I have a weak motor and and have a NMT, but no burned clutch through all my use.

Yea. Yokomo are comin out wit some cool drift cars. Electric though. The good thing is that Yokomo is going to be the 1st company to make and sell driftin cars. The bad thing is that it will take alot of grip from your tires and drain your batteries pretty fast from usin the motor. Plus it's possible to overheat your motor and blow. I say stick with the regular Elctrics or the GT-4.
