Default Sprint 2

Does anyone out there have experience with these cars? I'm new to r/c drifting, and want to get into it. I'm thinking about buying the HPI Sprint 2 Drift for a starter car.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
-carverrr

Buy it. Best upgrades for the price range. You really won't need to ever switch cars because you can get a carbon chassis, go brushless, and CS it.

I don't exactly know everything yet. I'll probably buy it and learn more I guess.

If you have any pointers...please send my way.

I'm interested in learning.

You should definitely consider getting one. I personally own one myself and I am in love with this chassis.
I'm still running stock with NiMH batteries, old school yo.
Still having a lot of fun drifting too! It's a blast!

Best tip in drifting is PVC/ABS pipe... make tires from that, don't buy them.

Picked up my Sprint 2 today. I hate batteries. From what I read, need to slow charge for the first time. Then you can quick charge after that.

CounterSteer. It means you switch up your gear ratios so that your rear wheels turn faster than the fronts. This lets you hold a counter angle during drifts, which makes the car look and behave more like the real deal.
