Bro,
Depends on how much you want to spend on this hobby....

Gd thing.....
-2nd hand Kit will be alot cheaper then brand new if you got a gd deal...

Bad thing....
-Wear and tear We cant see with our naked eyes
-If the kit got problem, you will not know where to start off with

just my view on 2nd kit....
But if the price is gd, go grab it.....

He did not use a battery to test. power came from a socket.. clips are red n black and it lights up .. but i was told the neon would light up with a 9v batt. Could this be fake ? cos i tried putting the wires in both ways and no light came .

Hey Bro sprig, I had the exact same problem as you when i started out R/C, and with the same tyres. I also used the same methods you used. Then i got fed up and boiled my Tyres in water for 5 mins each. Then you quickly take out the rims and fit them in.

Bear in mind i BOILED THE TYRES IN THE POT OF WATER. If the tyres have cooled down before you have set them into the rims, and they are stuck together, boil them both at the same time. The compound of the tyres will expand faster than the rims. After you have attached them in, put the tyre sets into tap water for a tight fit.

Please wear some kind of kitchen mitts, or you will have sore fingers after that.

If you still can't get them in, PM me. I will try to get them set for you.
Hope this helps.

Questions?? Getting a drift car....

Hi all, i'm thinking of getting a drift car, but don't know what to get.. all i know is that i like the brand H.P.I ...

i would like to ask whats the difference between Sprint 2 drift, Sprint 2 Sport and Sprint 2 Drift sport RTR... Quite new to R/c car. Don't really know which to get and what to get after getting the car. Personally i like the Sprint 2 drift sport.. Anyway, please kindly give your precious advices and thanks for the guidance.

Thank you

I don't have experience with the Sprint 2. But may I suggest another chassis, that is around the same price as a Sprint 2?

It's the TA-05, great drifter, and grip racer. Big bang for your buck.
Also has amazing potential if you hop it up.

The difference should be the type of tyres packaged with it. The drift versions should come with drift tyres, and the sport version is with touring tyres.

The RTR would come fully assembled with basic electronics to make the car run, whereas the others I believe would be kit versions, whereby you have to build the car.

Hi, thanks for the reply... Will consider between these cars... Shops do sell factory painted shells right? Are they reamed? or we can ream it on our own according to what car we have.

there are pros and cons btween ta05 and sprint 2. the main advantage of sprint 2 is the weight balance, with different kind os battery you put in, L/R balance still ok, not like ta-05.

this took me around few hour to complete 4 of them..
