Default Batteries/Charger Recommendations

Hello Everyone,

This is my first RC drift build and I have decided to go with a Sakura D3 with a Hobbywing X9B XERUN Brushless 90A ESC and 10.5T Motor. I would like to go with a Li-Po, but really dont know where to start. Any recommendations?

I was thinking about a Turnigy 5000mAh 7.4V and a iMAX B6 Charger.

-Thank You

Hi, for drifting the absolute minimum motor size you should choose is 13.5t with 17.5t bring the best for the job, 10.5 is a crazy choice as it is far far too fast and won't have the control that the slower motors have.

I use a 4250 overlander 2s lipo with a RC6 VSP multi function charger. I Also run a 13.5t brushless fashion exceed sport motor and esc but will be changing to 17.5 very soon

Im brand new to the hobby, so I could be wrong. But I've read/seen a lot of 10.5t motors in drift cars. And thank you for the battery input, Ill have to check that one out.

Anyone else?

Most people that know what they are doing know that the slower the motor the smoother and more controlled a drift will be.. A lot of people wrongly think that power is needed to create a drift and all it does is make it incredibly hard to regulate the power while in a drift.. The slower motors have a lower peak of power and are much easier to maintain drifts with and are much smoother for the job too

yes definately.. if you want to enjoy your drifting and maintain better drift styles the slower motors are the way to go
