Default RC Drift Meet

Hello All Drifters

I think its about time that all drifters get together for a drift session.

Venue : Toa Payoh Blk 60A, level 5B (Multi storey carpark - 5mins walk from MRT, Those driving can park car at level 5A)

Date : 19 Mar 04 (Keep it free!)

Time : 1930H

Non drifters with interest can also come together for some fun.

Those interested can always convert your 4wd touring car to a temporary drifter. More info can be found on these sites regarding tyres preparation and stuffs.....

Venue is the best I can find so far, quite centralised and big enough. A basketball court would be ideal but it is always packed. Any better suggestion could be accepted if majority agrees.

Please PM me if you are interested to come with the type of car you're running so at least I can have a 'feel' how many cars there will be.

Cheers

Look forward to a good 'drifting' time.

Default motors

Yep

Mabuchis are good enough.

For me I use the tamiya sports tune, long run times and no maintanence. Not much rpm but enough torque to drift liao.

Cheers

Default Tyres

I would presume that you need to prepare the tyres as to put PVC pipes on them.

Alternatively, run a flat rims with no tyres!

With that kind of no traction, any motor will do, sure enough traction.

You can also go down to J Cube hooby to buy a set of the yokomo drift tyres.

Hope this helps.

Springs and shocks, basically the stiffer the better.

I run best with zero camber all around.

That's why this gathering is all about, to gather and discuss setups and drift to heart's content.

Cheers

Still trying to get my Initial D cover ready for the meet.

Hi

I would recommed electric only cos it's in a mutli storey and noise will be an issue, let alone the fumes to get high on.

Where about is the 2 basket ball courts? Available on weekdays?

Could be a potential drift site!

Cheers
