i just bought the E-10 Drift, I haven't owned an RC in 15 years but drove by a hobby shop 2 weeks ago and thought i would get back into the hobby. after a few google searches i found some RC drift video's and i was hooked again. i don' want to own $5k+ worth of RC gear again so the E-10 seamed like a good fit.

ok here we go ive been meaning to post some pic's of some new upgrades i just got, ive offically eliminated the steering slop. ive fitted the atomic steering upgrade & have nearly finilised the adjustable steering turnbuckles, the ones pictured are version 1.1a (I ordered the wrong parts) also have replaced every screw i can with light weight ones, dont mind the wiring its a bit messy since i fitted the novak cut off.

those look like some nice upgrades, i must say i was really disturbed by the amount of slop in this car when i first took it out of the box.
i was also disappointed with the whole motor mount and gear mesh system they use.

i am really fighting my old habit's and trying not to upgrade until something breaks.
when i do start upgrading I'm sure it will be to address the slop

thats cool, umm u should be able to get heaps faster, might be worth trying a 30t pinion. or was that 30km/h or mph?

4600kv at 7.2v = 33120rpm hummm. whats the Circumferencec or diameter of your wheels?

Nice E-10. I have been drifting for a while and drift lots of chassis. A couple of months ago got a good deal on an E-10 and I was impressed. This car is ready to drift out of the box. I really dont understand how people trash this car so much. Maybe they just dont know how to drift. Again this is a really good drift car and I can really keep up with the big boys drifting.. I recently had to sell most of my drifting cars and had to let go of my E-10[]. I really loved this car and for the price it cant be beat. So I think HPI did a good job, they made a pretty good drift car RTR for around $160. Here is some Pics of mine, I really miss it...

Which wheels were these? I'm quite tempted by an E-10, but the stock wheels always look too tiny, so I would want to get ons that fill out the arches better of the Mustang GTR body.

Cheers!

Well First off the car comes with bearings for the wheels , but you will need to get yourself bearing for both diffs , there are 3 in each diff two for the axles and one for the pinion gear. Also get yourself an extra pinion set they are plastic and wear out fast if your running alot of power through the car. I run mine stock with no problems and that is with a brushless system . Change the wheels and tires , the stock ones wear out fast . Other than that is a nice car for the money . Enjoy.

I have a sidewinder 4600kv combo by castle creations , I wouldnt go any bigger than that as the plastic pinions in the diffs cant handle anymore power ... Its plenty fast with my set up and It was gps with 3300 nimh batteries at just over 30 mph . I have some pictures posted a few posts back . I did run a 11.1 volt lipo through it and it was dam near uncontrollable . Hope this helps .

phmaximus, how did you make your adjustable steering turnbuckles? Are they made of all purchased parts, or did you have to machine some of it? Nice job on your car by the way.
