Looking at using a castle sv3 motor esc combo I have already. Will that do the trick? Maybe someone could share a tune. I'm fairly new to radio control altogether so any tips are appreciated. Also I have been looking at a savox 1251mg it's the low pro version thoughts on that aswell. I think that's it for right now! Can't wait to get sideways!

The 1251 mg is a very good servo from what I've heard and will be plenty quick enough and powerful enough for this. I have a castle sv3 and I wouldn't use that, it will cog at low speeds and generally be overkill, especially for a rwd drifter. I would run a brushed motor, since the sv3 supports it.

I would suggest a 10.5T sensored motor. Follow the included instructions and you should have a pretty decent starting point for a setup. You will want to match the tires to the type of surface that you will be drifting on. I'm using YOKZR-DRC0 DRC's on my YD-2 on smooth concrete. They are listed as carpet/p-tile tires but are working well on concrete at our local track.

Thanks for the reply. Why don't you point me in the direction of a good motor /esc combo. Spend my money lol. I will also be drifting smooth concrete. So I'll try your tire recommendation most definitley!

Great I'll get on ordering the servo than. Thanks for input.

Dangerous comment lol. Spend according to your budget. If you can afford acuvance motor go for it. Pair it with Sanwa vortex v2, and mt-44 or m12s. I personally don't like bulky controllers. Lots of people go for omg and tekin too.

If you still are unsure about the hobby go for midrange like speed passion r / pro. combo.
Hobbywing is a decent brand but look for 120a and more. They are also manufacturing for yokomo from what I've heard. I don't know about yeah racing. The quality seems iffy to me. So I'd stay away from it.

I don't think you really need much more then a midrange. Turbo and boost functions are a feature on cement. They don't make a difference that much unless you are on a grippy place. It only sounds nice.

Well put. Makes it a little easier decision wise. The kit only cost me twenty bucks soooo. My budget for this build is pretty significant. I usually build scale crawlers. But I happened to win this and the drift scene at the track is pretty decent can't wait to get sideways. I always struggle to pull the trigger on buying electronics. It's still mostly jibber jabber to me.

I bought a used Xrun esc motor combo from one of the guys at my local track. It is working well for me. If you go that route make sure you get a program card to go with it. Some of the guys at the LT are running Speed Passion.
