Default Different Idea On Drift Tyres

hello everyone just been sitting there , had a thought , was having a drink from a bottle of water an suddenly got an idea of cutting the bottle in to strips , so you end up with hoops , the hoops then fit over the tyres and are held in place with the grip of the rubber tyre , instant drift tyres , there awesome , the first pic the tyre looks stock because the bottle being obviously clear , so i took the second to show the tyre beneath the outer piece of bottle have a go at making them yourselves an let me know how they work for you , another tip if your bottle has a label glued to it , use a small amount of lighter fluid to remove it along with any glue residue

the smooth plastic has very little grip , causing the car to slide so the car drifts around corners etc

Yeah, any type of hard plastic will slide, but you still need a lil bit of grip so you caqn actually control it thats why alot of people dont like PVc tires becuase they are way to slick, and give you little control.

yeh its quite controllable , i have only put the bottle strips on the back and i have wrapped insulation tape around the front tyres so they still have enough traction to pull the car out of a bad slide , its just all trial an error at the minute ,as i said in my original posting its just an idea that came to me
