the tape looks good the way it is. Just remember (I should have mentioned this before) that when you tape them you want to be able to roll over the seal not against it, if that makes sense. This means that the tape should point towards the rear of the car on the top of the tires.

attached is a picture with some of my truck and more of my driveway.

my clutch is pretty new and the clutchbell has a few gallons on it. I need to clean both of them but still have major life left.

Usually you'll burn a clutch up easily when you drift nitro

With the correct setup, you will never burn up your clutch. I never have anyways.

Default taped drift tyre on RTR

the drifting session went okay but i think due to lack of power... or maybe the track surface is too rough, i didnt manage to get the drift that i want. but i can feel by using the electrical tape i can slide big time....


maybe next time i will play on the wide walkway nearby the track.... they use smooth granite surface with some polished granite that definitely allow my tape drift tyre to SLIDE BIG KAHUNA.

next week i post some pic....

hmmmmm how i wish if FUTUREREAL allow us to upload movie files..... that would be cool!!!


before i went into drifting... i always thought if i use electrical tape... i may need a lot of tape due to the tyre wear but after today's session... i found out that the tape sticks very well to the tyre... maybe because the car is not to heavy... so it doesnt give any big loading to the tyre. i guess i can use the tyre for a longer run time!!!!

i did realised that i need to tape it in order the tape is OVERLAY each other towards INSIDE other wise it will be STRIPPED easier when your car drift. but then... that time it is TOO LATE for me.. i have taped 2 tyres already... i guess it is definitely TRY and ERROR session for me as always. learn through the hard way.

i do hope this drifting session wont kill my clutch. hehehehe.

and by the way....corvettecrazy... please clean your truck.... i know it is a truck and supposed to be dirty... but yours is too dirty!

what would be drifting if you had a one way in the front and rubber tires all around, but on the back ones electrical tape or just use pvc pipe for the back. I say one way for front is because when you let go off the gas the tires will continue to spin and you will get drifts like real cars, instead of goin sideways half the time like in the video.

I do have a one way in my car, but I'm not about to waste my 3d clutch on a drift

anybody going to try it my way, and i think you will have more control over the drifting using my way

you could jsut use a HPI silvia ...the silvia is considered a drift car...downside is that there are no body kits on it, jsut a straight silvia.

no worry about the clutch... coz mine is not centax (the expensive one)... only a normal shoe type.

I do have the centrax clutch, so I don't want to experiment, all will happen is the front will grip more while the back will have all the power=real drift

Have you tried buying the drift tires? They sell them at my local HS. They really hard rubber tires with a lot of negative camber to make the rear slide.

Do you guys use brakes alot in drifting? cause if you do then a front one way is not the go. as with this unit your car will only have rear brakes, which can lead to nasty 180 degree turns when brake is applied. i've done 360 turns on a straight at my track with worn foams!

I'll be getting my TC3 in 2 weeks in which ill be studying the art of drifting what electric motors do you guys use? someone has told me a 19T is best for drifting. I was hoping a 540 silver can will do. as im getting a ESC with reverse and a 20T motor limit.
