Default Setup?

Hey Im new to rc drifting, and this forum, and was wondering is there a good setup for rubber tires. I have a brand new hpi nitro rs4 3 evo. I not new to rc. I used to race a stadium truck so I know the parts and stuff. And how much does a tuned pipe affect the acceleration and speed and all that. thanks alot

Stiffen up everything, you'll want the least traction as possible. If you plan on using the x patterns that came with the car, you will have some trouble. I have tried to drift with them on a semi slick wet surface with little success, just tiny whips, not a lot of fun.

No need for making it thinner, it's 1:1 with rubber tires as it is.

You can't beat the price, quality, or fun they provide. Search often to see new products.

We make it ourselves, from aluminum wire. It's non-fraying, flexible, and comes with enough to do a car front/rear, or 2 front grills. It's Drift Specialties, not "Drift Specialties" don't be disrespectful.
