Default Drift

Not aware of any drift package for V1S.
You could try using the drift tires, but from what I understand, with HPI, the Stage D shifts the weight of the car forward and towards the center to achieve a better balance.
I'll do some testing to see how different this set up would be compared to just using drift tires with a regular car, then I'll post my findings.
As for servos, maybe it ought to be a fast enough servo, then again it might not matter so much.

Or is it goin to be like the real drift comp. That they give score how well you drift your car?

I think the yokomo drift cars is specially tuned for drift only,but you can try it out on grip racing too.
I was lookin at their cars and evrything looks the same as the touring cars,its all adjustable.
The thing is the both front and rear diff is locked,and if you try this out on grip racing,your goin to have a hard time to tune your car,but you can buy and change it to a regular diff and case to work on grip racing,I'm sure its available.


Hey Greddy! I think ill just use the yokomo drift tires,and its looks nice too!!heheheh.
