Default first ever drift session!

hey guys i went up to templestowe flat track (u guys who live in melbourne australia would no about that) and tryied out some drifting.
didnt go to well i was running a tl-01 with a 1800 batt and a stock 27t motor with a 19t gear and taped wheels, but the car was getting to much traction!
can any of u guys post up some links to some tire making threads or sites that show u how to make up pvc tires? that would really help thx....

Tape drifting is for the dogs. You're on the right track as far as what to do. Instead of PVC tires you should be looking into ABS tires , it's a softer compound than PVC and is black instead of white or gray. If ABS isn't available in AUS, you can order a set from my company: [link=http://www.driftspecialties.com]http://www.driftspecialties.com[/link] , shipping is only a couple bucks to AUS.

I shipped out several orders to AUS this week, so I know we ship to AUS. As far as them fitting your application, they fit all standard touring car wheels. The 24/26mm is width, is this what confused you?

I do stuff outside of eBay, but you'll still need a PayPal account. Maybe you can convince them to let you do that? I don't do money orders or other payment methods for my security aswell as the customers'.
