Default Drifting!

Any setup for those people who like to drift?

I got Tamiya CLK-GTR with .12 stock engine. I want to drift, what will I need to install on my car?

Its racing were you make your car slide around corners. I think it is fun, i did it with my micro once with electrical tape on the tires. It works the best in RC witha all wheel drive car

hmm i play around with my drift r/c in the neighborhood. but this is an electric not a nitro. i just run like massive amounts of camber

front: -4
rear: -3
0 toe all around
40wt oil all around
try to use a medium-medium soft spring. (helps with the weight transfer.
and my diffs, i run it as stiff as it can get in the rear. with a "medium setting" in the front..

and i use the softest swaybar i can find. hope this helps.

If you go to www.crazynutracing.com you can find tires that can aid you in drifting (they look like a rim and "tire" put together, but it's solid plastic tread) and the electrical tape thing will work.... and drifting with nitro, make sure you have some tiny form of grip, don't wanna overrev the engine... that would suck! IMO, drifting with electric is a lot better..

Don't you have to be 2WD for drifting?

you dont need 2WD to drift. im making my super nitro rally intoa drift car.

youll want to stiffen the suspension, add some hop-ups. basically, you just need to get a feel for your car. maybe start out with really worn slick tires to get used to the slide. i know HPI has rubber drift tires, but of course not for my car's size , but there are similiar products out there.

a lot of power isnt needed, but may make it a bit more fun to add some. edit-- id also like to mention to watch your revs. any car can drift, just have to get the feel for it. i started out find dusty patches in the road, lessoning grip, to slide through.

You mean PVC? Sure, car will be almost uncontrollable though. Used on electric most often.. 99% of the time it's on electrics. the other 1%, is misc.
