If its not an EP motor, what kind of motor is it? Hydrogen? Corn starch? haha or would i not be a motor but be an engine?

And i knew what PVC piping was... haha but i didnt know what they meant by using it...i've never heard of that...then again i've never looked into R/C drifting before either.

When one is gearing the car, what is an example of how it could be geared? When people say "geared" i dunno what they mean; all i know is it has to do with spur and pinion.

pLeAsE hElP!?

i have seen rc nitro drifting, and all they used was plastic instead of tires. But that is the easy way out. All you need is a really torquey motor, have different gearing, and a good suspension setup. Or the plastic tires

drifting wif nitro...

Hmmmm... possible... but i would expect great difficulties... cos the power band of nitro engines is difficult to control...

electric motors are more linear and predictable... i wouldn't say drifting wif nitro is impossible, but u need the magic throttle finger....

Yeah, I blip my throtle. Since that video, I've developed a different technique, a little less blipping. I like my setup to be 6 degrees caster, 0 degrees camber front and back, 1 degree toe out in front, 1 degree toe in on the back. Suspension a little stiff. That's about it. Just a lot of practice.

HOW about your ride height?

and

HOW about the body? is there any SPECIFIC body u use?

and

HOW about this.... you can use what ever body u want BUT you have to be sensitive on the REAR WING...? coz i see most of the DRIFT body have a very HIGH REAR WING.... is it?


additional quesiton:

What TYRE u use in the video and current practice after the video?

How u develop your BLIPPING technique... how LESS is LESS? Can explain more on how to blip less but still get the same DRIFT?


HOW about the TRACK SURFACE....? is it concrete or smooth tarmac?
