Default Noob Drifting Question

Hi all,

I'm still learning how to drive drift cars, so with that said this might be a dumb question, but here it goes. I have a TC3, and like all the TC3's that I have ever seen, it's awd. The only indoor carpet track that I can find in my area either races drifts or touring depending on what the majority of the racers are running on that particular day. So, since my car is awd is it any better or worse for drift races vs. twd cars? If there is a difference is there a quick, and easy way that I can change it between awd and twd depending on what is raced?

+1
Check the "loose nut" behind the wheel. LOL. j/k. There's nothing wrong with your car. Both touring and drifting are 4wd sports and the TC3/4 do well in both.
