If I were to get a drifter I would get a mirco, cheap, easy to upgrade, and small enough to drift through the kitchen and seriously piss of my parents.

NO, the bad thing is that the manufacturers can see the birth of a cash cow, then they'll take RC Drifting over for their own needs, make a load of crappy rules and make us have to use expensive tyres/rings if we PVC pipers want to join in big RC Drift meets.

RC Drifting belongs on the street with the skaters and BMX dudes, it's extreme RC, if ya don't like it don't knock it until you've tried it.

I raced competitively for 25 years or more and after very recently discovering RC Drifting, I'm hooked, it is so much fun and you'll always get people watching in wonder.

Oh yeah, on the battery life front, with PVC pipe tyres, instead of the usual 4 minutes plus a couple of laps (like circuit racing on rubber/foam) my 5 year old 2000's running a P2K Pro are lasting 15 minutes!!!

I love this sport.

Anyone can drift, get a tl-01 cheap on ebay, a stock turn motor(I use a Trinity monster stock) buy 2 feet of 2 in. ID(inside diamiter) pvc pipe for less than a buck and fit the wheels to the pipe graba hacksaw cut 4 tyres and glue'm up. Optional: Use the MSC and get a batt box put the box on a switch and you'll have longer batt. life and more power,

That is what I did cept' I had a tl-01 from my first good car.
