Default Drift'd my TL-01 TodaY

So i was bored today and it had just rained, so i got an idea after reading the drifting thread.
So off i went to my attic, loaded a Reedy Pulse R 13turn Double into my trusty ol TL-01 and off i went down the road to the schools outside basketball courts and man, did i have some fun. (apart from my battery running out in 3 minutes)

I find drifting sooooo much fun, being able to drive your car sideways and keep it that way for quite sometime is a good challenge.
I used some really narrow slicks i bought a year ago really cheap from the bargain bin at my LHS.
turns out they are great drifting tyres.

Just thougt i'd tell the world of my little drifting experience

Slap some PVC or ABS pipe on those rims, and use that 13 turn motor and it will be 10 times more fun

ok, taht gear on your motor is called a PINION, turns means how many times the copper wire is wound around your motors armature. a lower turn motor means more speed, higher RPM and will drain your battery faster. a smaller pinion (eg. 9t, which is really really small) means more acceleration but will give you a cooler motor...etc...

a bigger pinion (eg 23t (t means teeth)) means more top end speed but your motor could burn out and batterys get really hot.

Hope that explains alot

for drifting i am gonna try using my stock motor (23 turn) and see what that does, but i would advise using a small pinion for drifting, mainly because you want the acceleration and not the speed. acceleration so your tyrees will break loose. you will see on your pinion that it will have a number on it somewhere, thats how many teeth it has, i am, at the moment, using an 18 tooth pinion when drifting.

I think you'll find that to be classified as 'Stock' it's gotta be 27T, there's no such thing as a 23T stock (as far as ROAR are concerned)

Monster motors (8 turn etc.) are crap for RC Drifting, yeah sure they rev like hell but that's no use to a Drifter, you need torque as soon as possible, and that means high turn motors (27T and upwards)

Made me laugh though to read 14T and 3 minutes running, what the hell ya doin' dude, get a 27T in there, PVC pipe, low spec ESC and you'll see 15 minutes out of a set of 2000's (I do, and they're 5 years old too!)
