Default OMG! drifting is the coolest

I recently got a nitro 1:10 on-road car. I ran it in and started to open it up. It was great. Then i got some electrical tape and wrapped it round the regular tyres so that i could give drifting a go, this was the first time that i had tryed it.

OMG i have never had so much fun with an rc. It just adds a completely new dimention to rc cars. It was quite hard at first but i did start to get the hang of it.

I am definitely going to enjoy mastering his technique. I was wondering though does anybody have any tips for me or is it just a matter of practicing and getting used to how the responds to diferent things.

P.S. If anyone out there is thinking about getting into drifting, stop thinking and go get tourself a driffter, you wont look back

here is a tip for better cornering, it works for me. Right before you enter the turn slam on the brake then put it in full throttle when you start the turn. When exiting the turn, let off the gas to regain control.

if you have anymore questions email me [email protected]

yes drifting is fun, not in my real car (civic)

the r/c makes it safe though. I do it w/an electric car so I can go inside places.

if you have abs on your rc car ajust it to put more braking at the rear end of the car to get the rear end swining out which you can then control with the throttle keepin a nice big drift
