I'm planning to drop an old 17.5 motor in the car, spool in back, one way in front. I'd like to drift at higher speeds in parking lots and sport courts, so the poly wheels don't look like they'll do the trick - will the HPI drift tires work? Also, is there a basic setup I should put on the car? I'm guessing my high grip carpet setup isn't gonna cut it in the drifting world.
This is purely for bashing-style drifting - no competitions or anything like that. I've managed to get the ass-end of my 17.5 Touring car to step-out with the "wrong" tires on the back, causing the car to blast around the corner at 25mph, which was a helluva lot of fun. I'm thinking the combination of spool, decent power and some bravery ought to get me there - what do you guys think? Thanks in advance for your help.
