Chicago Drifter

Hey Guys,

Im Mak and im not too new to rc. I am very new to RWD rc drifting though. Ive had my Sprint 2 for about a year now. Ive CS'ed it. Then i bought a Eagle Racing TT02 FRD but i havent touched it lol. I have been working and trying everything on the Sprint 2 to convert it to RWD but its been a huge headache trying to get enough steering angle and good suspension movement. Been thinking on ditching the Sprint 2 for a RWD D4. Any tips will help :) Good meeting you guys! Heres some pics of my bench and Frankenstein Sprint 2.

I had the TT02, and I sold it due to suspension being sticky and not holding my settings. About a year later (just a few weeks ago) I got the MST fxx-d s ifs. So far it's better than the TT02, but I have no knowledge on the D4 minus it's about the same price as my fxx and comes with some aluminum out if the box, plus the adjustability out of the box. That was my only issue with the fxx is that the S version isn't really adjustable out of the box, but that is easily fixed the the MST turnbuckle set, or just some threaded rod. As for the sprint 2 I started with that too now it just sits there since I got my first MST, the MS-01D pro.

US shipping is free on $75 and up. I'm pretty sure they ship to Canada as well, if needed.

No worries! A lot of our products offer free shipping in the US :). I'm just happy people have more options! When I started drifting it all had to be purchased overseas.

Well it all had to start somewhere. I'm glad it has taken off here too, so that we don't have to order from over seas anymore, but of course there are a few exceptions. Eagle racing being one. Oh, idk if you saw or if it would even really be something you guys would want up, or put up here, but MST is coming out with a new version of the XXX-D. It's a Rally RTR. Just thought I'd give a heads up if you didn't already know.

Email blackstar they may not actually be out of stock. It was like that when I went to order mine emailed them next day it was in stock. IDK if they got the shipment after I emailed but it seemed like a coincidence to me.
