First thread

Ok who here also drifts RC cars? Post a picture of your car if you do.

I drift a Team Associated TC4 Team kit, using a Novak Velociti 5.5/GTB and HPI T-Drift tires.

Thats looks so cool. I almost ordered an HPI nitro drift car a while back, but changed my mind a few days later sicne there are not many places I can drive it here...

Electric is where it's at!

We have an indoor carpet drift track, it's really awesome. Nothing like tandem drifting with some of your buddies!

With what part of the car? I'm having a couple problems with the differentials on mine, but that's to be expected if they're plastic. I'll be buying the solid steel spools soon ...

Mine isn't the Factory Team, the FT is the CF plate chassis one. This one is just the Team version with molded carbon and nylon components.

As for the screws, it's molded plastic, you have to be easy on them

Very nice. I used to own a TA-05 that I used to drift. However, the cost for upgrading at the time was too much for me so I sold it. I definitely loved it though--had the CC Mamba Max brushless system with 6900kV motor .

Have you guys ever tried to race with your stick Tx's? I am going to need an On Road car soon, and I dunno if using it with my DX7 will be usable, really. I am just worried about the throttle since I wouldn't know how to program the brake?
