hmm, sounds like a start, ur paint is flaking because its either not for polycarb bodys or becuase u painted it on the outside...

There have been a million threads about this, just scroll down and u can find threads about settings for shocks, diffs, just about anything, So do that first, then post back if u have any further questions.

p.s. ur member name is an oxymoron ; )....

Learn suspension. Any good drifter, whether its R/C or real knows suspension. I setup the suspension on my R/C car to mimic my drifter. My car was originally setup for AWD but I modified it to be RWD so i wasn't doing zero countersteer drifts. The only problem with my car is it has crappy weight distribution. I get a lot of understeer. But then again I don't have PVC's on the back either. Also, for some background on whats going on and the forces acting on the car, check out the drift bible by keiichi tsuchiya, the drift king. You can get it at www.drifting.com. I will say that I can drift my car much better than my r/c but, i've also been drifting my car longer.

an oxymoron is like Jumbo-Shrimp somthing large discribing somthing small. along those lines. if you want to know more bout it Watch Renasance Man staring Danny Davito. plus it is a good movie.
