i think it will drift if you put plastic wheels on.

you can get them at the hardware store and ask them for plastic cylinders. then you cut them to the right wide as ur wheel.

HPI offers a stage3 drift conversion for their RS4-3. I think it even includes drift tires. Yokomo also sells drift tires.

Just for fun I took the drift ring/wheels from my Yoke Drift kit and put them on my Yoke GT4. It drifts pretty good, I haven't set the camber out to 0 yet. But it does take a toll on your engine.

I haven't see the Yoke Nitro Drift kit yet, I want to see how different it is from the GT4. I'm also looking to see if I can get the HPI drift wheels and slap them on my GT4.

That is a sweet video but i would hate to see that motor after that run. How many times was he on and off the throttle and then on it full. not saying that nitro drift is bad but man how times are you going to have to rebuild your nitro motor

I attended a 2 day race where HPI demo'd the drift conversion. They ran the car every hour for a 15 mins or so right next to the track. The motor wasn't reving that high most of the time. To hold a good drift line you needed to feather the throttle. Doing doughnuts were a different story though. The car would spin like a top

I personally liked to see the exaust smoke coming out the back of the car instead of the side.
