Default cheap drifter

Hi,
I'm quite new here, but I like to recommend a very special and cheap RC drifting car.Here in Europe it costs about 20€ (+-22$).
It's toy grade but with a little bit of adjustment,it drifts good and drives fast.Nikko (don't stop reading because of the name!!!) produced a line of rc cars from the movie TFATF: Tokyo Drift. I got a Nissan 350z scaled 1:22. It comes with an extra set of drifting tyres from Falken. You can also get a Mustang,Skyline,etc But this one is quite cool!
If you just buy another controller and modify the engine a little, it does you 42kmp!!!



For more information,
check google>nikko rc car>tuner series>tfatf

Sensei5 Its a Toy..
Its RWD and no,, it wont Drift..
It will Tail out rather Badly but not Drift..

For Toy Grade, Which is a Bad move to begin with .. Tyco Drift King have the Court but why buy a Toy grade when a HBX TL-01 costs around the same and is a Hobby Grade RC..


See My Budget Drifter Post for a Complete Review on the HBX TL-01.. You may look into getting one for yourself..

Magnat,
It's quite good for toygrade! And yes it Drifts very good!!! But your arguments are good on the standard model. Let me remind you that it's engine tuned by an expert. It drifts better than some hobby grade models!!!

O and look out for my video i will post a link quite soon
