R/C Drifting


Hobby Grade R/C Cars 

    Radio controlled drifting is a new section of the hobby.  Most any touring car can drift with the right tires and set up, but I prefer electric touring cars.  The main reasons for this is that  gas touring cars have a tendency to overheat while drifting, and they don't have as much immediate torque required to break the tires loose.  

    I currently have an electric touring car set up for drifting.  It is a 10 year old MR4-TC BD.  It has custom made PVC tires, which work well.  

    I have also drifted a Hpi micro rs4, but I sold it a while ago.  It drifted well, but I would recommend a 1/10th scale, just because they are less twitchy.
