    HPI Nitro Trophy 3.5 question.

    I picked up a Nitro Trophy 3.5 recently. I plan on using it for general bashing and the occasional race. My lhs doesn't know much about it yet as it is so new here in the states. I am wondering what...

    RE: tires question

    I have never tried them. But for the price I might. Check out Raikou drift tires. Hands down some of the best out there. You should also check out the HPI drift tires and the Yokomo drift tires. They...

    RE: chassis question

    For a radio I would recommend a Spektrum like the following: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/cPath/61_119/products_id/202709/n/Spektrum-DX3C-DSM-3-Channel-Surface-Radio. It has multiple...

    RE: chassis question

    Here you go. You will have to get your radio gear for it though. If you want to drift and are set on a BMW body this is my choice.</p>

    RE: upgrade

    Go with the TT01D. It's purpose built for drifting and should get you sliding with minimum effort. It also has a large parts support through third party manufacturers. It depends on your budget...

  8. RE: Really new to drifting, few questions about e10 and upgrades

    I would have went with the Sprint 2 Drift over the E10. The Sprint 2 is just plain better than the E10. But also don't forget Yokomos as well. I have a Sprint 2 (cs'd @ 1.5) and two Yokomos (one cs'd...

    I have heard of the XO-1. It's kind of impressive. But there is one drawback. It's MSRP is $1099 http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/js/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/msn/50_50.gif

    RE: OFFICIAL HPI Sprint 2 Thread (Sport and Flux)

    You are correct on some parts. The "t" is what it is equivallent to for a brushed motor. Lower turns means a faster motor. More poles means more torque. Yes you want a 540 size motor. And it depends...

    RE: Hot Bodies TCFD or Tamiya VDF

    I would go with a VDF. They have a huge parts following and aftermarket following. Check your LHS to see if they carry parts though. But, if you're just starting out, have you thought about a Sprint...

    RE: one way bearing

    I don't think its the OWB. I think it's the pull start itself. I can pull and pull and it doesn't catch. The last pull start I replaced on it, the plastic was stripped. And I think that is what...

    RE: help me pick a chassis!

    Yes, a TT01 can be countersteered, takes some work but possible. A shaft driven car can be set up for CS, but its a bit harder to do than a belt driven car. Top dogs at the moment are the Tamiya...

    RE: Under $150

    Agreed. Although I have heard some good things about Redcat product, it looks like if you sneeze near it, it will break. And at least with the HPI, you would have some major support behind it.

    TT01 or TA05 for drifting.

    Titles says it all. I think I have narrowed it down between the two. Which would be a better choice for a drifting platform?
