As a matter of fact, I've seen cars driving down the street with wings like that. I'm not sure why, but some people put them that way. It could be that they're idiots and have no idea what they're doing, but I have seen it before.

Must be good for beginners but I doubt it would ever be a real competitor.

What's your budget? And where's Monument, CO? I'm currently in Cheyenne, WY and maybe we can meet up sometime this summer and drift it up.

Monument, CO.. that sound familiar.... I think they mentioned it in Bowling for Columbine.

Btw, your about 151.32 miles away from Monument, and about 2 hours, 22 minutes away. (Mapquest)

you say the tyco cars are small? kbtoys says its 17.5 inches long. and PLEASE dont drift the mini t, buy a touring car. besides mini t is rear wheel drive, which would make it virtually impossible to drift.

ebay has some cool 4wd cars that would problaly run in drift races. I was thinking about owning one but money is in a pinch right now. I wounder if those gas cars that go real fast would work for drifting? Also i have seen the new tyco drifter series and they are about 17" long and look real cool.

If you're going to spend that much money on a toy-grade RC car, you as might as well look on Ebay for a used TL-01, TT-01 or HPI RS4 Sport. The major toy companies are just trying to capitalize on the drifting craze by mass producing those cars, and with mass production comes lower quality. Come on, if you can afford $60 for a toy car, why not save up a little more and get a real RC? Sure you won't be drifting for a little longer, but the satisfaction of knowing you got a quality car will make the wait a mere memory.
