Hello there.

I've always liked drifting and wanted to get into the hobby.

So I bought myself 2 Kyosho MA-020 Mini-zs , one for myself and one for my kid , and immediately started buying parts and modding them , but no matter how you mod them they don't seem to drift too well with off the shelf parts. Most Mini-z enthusiasts build their own parts , a lot of 3rd party aftermarket Mini-z awd parts are no longer available and parts have recently become scarce.

Now I'm transitioning into 1/10 scale , as I put together a super clod buster for my kid successfully , I've developed a nostalgic motivation.

I want to build a Tamiya 1/10 TT01E Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evo.II simply for the body and turn it into a drift car.

I will be needing all the help I can get as I don't have much experience.
Any advice will be much appreciated. 

Thanx for taking the time to read my post.
Mini-Z can drift very well if you're prepared to buying stuffs from Japan. But parts are scarce indeed compare to a few years ago.
However for 1/27-1/28 nowadays people use other chassis which are much better than MA020. I use Mini-Q Q7 and WLtoys 1/28, for example.

Just last month a company called Atomic (very well known for Mini-Z scale racing chassis) released the first ever RWD 1/28 drift car called DRZ.

Anyway, welcome and I hope you find all the info you need to build your car, no matter what scale it is.
