    drift cars

    What is the best starter setup for drift cars brushless or brushed? If I have the opportunity for brushless should I get one as a starter.

    RE: drift cars

    There is a drifting section. I recommend reading through some threads there.

    Brushless is simply put faster and therefore more expensive. It's most likely fine for starting.

    For drifting however more important is your chassis. What is your price range and what are you looking at right now?

    New or used doesn't matter just something to get started with that I can eventually make my custom for me.

    RE: drift cars

    See if any of this appeals to you:
    ORIGINAL: TheDriftingNarwhal
    (A few of the popular drifting modifications)
    Well locking the rear diff means that both rear wheels must spin equally. This means one wheel will lose traction, causing the other wheel to also. This makes it easier to slide out the rear end.

    Counter steer modifications include increasing steering angle and changing gears.
    Gears: CS Mods change the drive gears so that more power goes to the rear wheels. You will often see this referenced as a number or percentage. 50%, or 150% countersteer means that there is 50% more power going to the rear than the front. Similar to full-size cars, this allows more realistic "counter steer" drifting in which the steering is able to turn in the opposite direction for a consistent period. This modification is more popular on belt drive cars due to it being easier to swap gears.

    Steering angle: To assist counter steering, sometimes the front arms are modified to allow more steering angle. This means it will be able to exit a drift without spinning out while continuing at high speed.

    Most other vehicle modifications are purely cosmetic.
