    Cheap Drift RC Cars

    Hi, I'm new to the RC scene, and I'm looking for cheap RC Drift cars..

    I am wondering if these are half decent?

    ^ I can't seem to find the brand.. I wonder if there are spare parts?
    ex: Spare wheel, spare battery, spare motor..

    And this... I can't find the brand either. And I'm wondering if there are any spare parts.

    RE: Cheap Drift RC Cars

    there're not hobby grade cars. so parts r realy hard to get...i'm sure ur not going to brake many parts on a drift car. try Exceed.. brushless drifters for like 180.00. there pretty good.

    SUPER GT POWER
    KING SPORT RACE
    MODERN DRIFT
    And the logo is a ripoff of HPI's newer logo...

    RE: Cheap Drift RC Cars

    i would think a brushed drifter would be fine, you really wouldnt want to go into a turn sidways at 50mph.

    i think a drift car is next on my list. OFNA most likely. its a pre-assembled kit.

    RE: Cheap Drift RC Cars

    I agree with Xerxes the red cat racing drifters are awesome for the buck. And the local hobby shop has been swapping out HPI parts on his like the 1 way diffs and other repair parts seems like a direct clone. Especally for a $160 brushed RTR

    RE: Cheap Drift RC Cars

    Any touring car + electrical tape on all four tires = drift car.
    My stash:
    1 rally modded NTC3, 1 HeliMax Axe CX Nano, 1 Hobbico NexSTAR.

    yup. mynes bin good 2 me.

    needles 2 say, plastik tires r useless wit brushles power.

    xerxes uses regular rubber radials. its a mean 40mph driftr now.

    also has nun of da original electroniks r bein used.

    still worth da prise. 120$ shippd. rtr
