you are defiantly gonna have to provide some more info on the car before anyone can really help you out. if you glue some abs to the rims, they will defiantly last alot longer. obviously to get crazy drifting (possibly uncontrollable) you want to get as light as you can with as much power as you can get.

I'm guessing he's running a Radio Shack / Wal Mart type R/C. Lighter is better but you have more control if the weight is balanced.

When you "floor" it you give it full throttle which makes the little green light come on, It turns green when you give it full throttle. If you run it without tires it will mess up your rims.

Do you have a picture of the car? Or does it have a name on it anywhere?
