Hello...

Never owned an RC, other than those I've bad as a child. So this should be fun.
I kind of jumped the gun before researching or asking questions, based on the limited knowledge I've gained by browsing.

Still waiting on delivery, but everything should come in by the end of next week.

HPI Sprint 2 Drift RTR w/ Camaro body
HPI Work Meister SP1 in chrome finish
HPI Lexus LS430 200mm clear shell
Spaz Stix color changing paint
MST TMB's in copper finish
An intercooler for the LS
Assorted tires to play around with

This is going to be a learning experience...

Here's a pic of the MST Copper TMB's

I do have some upgrades in mind for the Sprint 2 chassis, currently looking at the selection on the Asiatees website.

Not done researching what's most important yet though... Any suggestions?

Why do I need to lock the differential? I thought because it's a Sprint 2 Drift, it would one with that feature?

There are tracks I think by 241 an Wakefield or by your area just gotta look or start local group like I said hit me up bro maybe we can start an club I'm sure there are other who drift
What's Good Fellas? Listen Skavenger Drift Crew has an outdoor track in the park at 161 street and Jerome ave. Im from Brooklyn and I have been spending some time up there with my teammates from Team Drift Kraze... It's an open park the spot is right behind the bike/skate ramps...... Enjoy your first step into drift.....
