Exclamation Drifting?

So...anyone got any tips for R/C drifting? All i can imagine is just have a lot of power and peel out...but wouldn't one have to have amazing handling skills?

???

torque is the biggest part of the power needed to drift.

check out RCD drift some time they give a lot of info on drifting.

and yes its all about the handling and suspension set up.

To me it mostly tires, with the right tires your car will be able to slide.

Yes, agree with that ... and track surface.

Normally I strugle to find the right set-up ... I'd be a natural drifter!

Default tyre, camber, ride height and motor

what i know in order to have a good drift:

1) very low CG..... lowest ride height the better.
2) use PVC pipe as tyre
3) camber set to 0, NO toe in and toe out
4) high torque EP motor (a bit difficult for nitro due too much torque)

thats it.


later i will find more links for ya...

You have to make them yourself, cut the pipe to the right width, and glue them on the rim.
