  Mst drift advise and info.
Posted by: Turbo2703 - 05-19-2020, 02:04 PM - Forum: Chassis Discussions - No Replies

Hello all. New to site and just getting into drifting.
I currently am running a budget 4wd drift car but now want to move onto a rwd chassis. I was looking at the mst rrx 2.0 black edition. Would this be a good choice?
Also will it hold a nicad batteries? as I don't really want to have the add cost of switching to lipo batteries and charger.
And what brushed motor would work best?
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
Cheers.

Video Trackstar D - Spec Gyro issue - Please Help
Posted by: M. Bison - 05-16-2020, 12:36 PM - Forum: Electronics - No Replies

Hey all, I'm new to the drifting scene and so I decided to go on a bit of a budget. I ended up purchasing a TrackStar D - Spec V2 Gyro. However, after a month of use, the gyro began to act funny. After drifting the car for about 5 minutes, the gyro would begin to full lock the servo and the gyro would have a stable red light with a blinking green light. I would not be able to control the servo movement at all from the remote, while I have full control over the throttle. I am running a Graupner DES121 servo and powered by a 300mah 2S lipo battery. Please see the video. Has anyone had this issue or any problems with this gyro? 

Thanks in advance,

Shadaloo

  Gyro Steering Issue
Posted by: Rock3400 - 05-11-2020, 02:46 PM - Forum: Help Section - No Replies

My steering will cut out sometimes when plugged into the gyro, and when I drift it will hold the steering full lock regardless of steering input. The steering works perfectly fine when not connected to the gyro. I tried lowering the gain but that didn't make a difference. I'm using a Power HD Dual System gyro. Thanks

Hi, I'm new so go easy on me, as I know nothing about drifting. I used to race 1/10 touring cars and 2wd buggy as well as 4wd buggy. I still have my old touring car which I'm thinking about converting to a drift car. The chassis only has limited steering lock so I'm trying to work out how to increase that first. It's an xray t2 so probably not the ideal choice, but it has an adjustable diff front and rear for either a diff or solid diff by using a pin and rubber o ring. My next job after steering is to repair the body as I love the nsx.

I'm a total RWD newbie! I have a mostly stock entry-level YD2S, and I was wondering if anyone has any setup tips if local drifting is on smooth parking lot asphalt? I'm very new, so if anyone has could share a setup sheet or anything of that nature, I would be extremely grateful!

  Bl-pro4d help please
Posted by: Mk314 - 04-22-2020, 04:16 PM - Forum: Electronics - No Replies

I was running my car and noticed my piñon gear was eating my spur gear. Was just gonna run it anyway and all of a sudden the whole thing just turned off. So I turned it off and back on and nothing. Let it sit for a min and turned it back on and nothing happened except my bl-pro4d led was blinking. Looked up the code in the online manual. It blinks red 7 times. The manual doesn’t list the error. It says blinks 6 for motor protection. But nothing for 7 times.

I’ve had the motor hotter before and the esc wasn’t really hot. I do have the yokomo WiFi module and I did turn down the temp for the motor and esc to try to not let it get too hot. Don’t know what to do. Any help would be great thanks.

  Beginner Question - Yokomo YD-2E or YD-2S?
Posted by: rcsrccars - 04-14-2020, 05:20 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (1)

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to RC Drifting. My local track is indoor polished concrete.

I want to get a kit that I can upgrade as I go.

I'm looking at the Yokomo YD-2E or 2S. Any opinion on this choice?

I'm going to get a Yokomo YG-302 gyro with the kit.

I have NIB Hobbywing Xerun 120A V3.1 Sensored Brushless ESC and Hobbywing XERUN Justock 3650 SD G2.1 Sensored Brushless Motor (21.5T).

What would be a good midrange servo for under $100?

What tires should I run? Do body styles make a difference for drifting performance?

Thanks in advance.

I've got a reasonably large-ish space in the back part of my shop, floor is concrete but is somewhat abrasive. Not bad, but not exactly smooth. I was wondering if I could purchase something along the lines of this to lay down. It's cheap, not expecting perfection but it might be a nice idea. Thoughts?

  TT02 Supra GR drift build
Posted by: T_1776 - 03-22-2020, 06:31 PM - Forum: Work-in-Progress - Replies (3)

I just finished putting this kit together last night and still have some work to do, but I was able to "drift" a bit in the basement and now I'm hooked again... I still have to finish the body, but it fits alright for now. I'm using the factory brushed motor with a rx/esc combo out of my ECX Temper, but I have a Sidewinder SCT esc (out of my old slash) that I plan on pairing with a brushless motor once I finally decide what I want to get, any recommendations? 

I've also been eyeing the Yeah Racing RWD aluminum kit for it, but want to do some research first. Anyone have experience with this kit?

As for wheels/tires, my main drift combo is a set of black MST wheels with MST gold tires. I also have a set of "touring" tires on a set of MST deep dish wheels for when I want a little more speed. So far I'm in love with this car... I have to finish up the light buckets as well as pick up some LEDs, trim those horrid body posts, and adjust the suspension, but I have several other big plans for this thing.

I used to have a TT-01 that I drifted with, but got rid of it years ago and have been into 1/8 truggies ever since and now it's time to get back in the game.

  D4 RWD steering help
Posted by: D4rwds13 - 03-08-2020, 09:58 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (8)

Hi all, new here and need some help with my D4 steering.

I'm running the sport black edition chassis with a curved slide rack, 3racings tiny kpi knuckles, 3racing aluminum lower arms and modified standard upper arms (to adjust caster to fairly low. 3° maybe, can't measure).

The problem I'm having is at full lock my leading wheel has alot of free movment and likes to pull itself around and bind up the whole steering system.
For now I've had to put long grub screws into the knuckle to limit the throw to stop it jamming.
I've tried every different hole configuration with no success so figured it was time to farm it out to the experts. Hoping someone can tell me where I've gone wrong here.

Also, if anyone has a suggestion on what tyres best suit a no so smooth concrete surface that'd be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

  Yokomo YD-2R Plus RWD Chassis
Posted by: wilkewhaq - 01-18-2020, 10:58 PM - Forum: News and Announcements - No Replies

In response to traction control on low-grip roads, which has been of interest to many drift users in recent years, the “rear motor” layout is the answer to maximize rear traction without changing the weight of all equipment.

A heavy motor is mounted on the rear overhang to distribute the load directly to the rear tires. The traction can be applied most efficiently with the throttle on, and an optimal balance with high driveability has been derived! This is a high-spec machine that comes standard with the popular matte graphite double deck chassis, aluminum SLF oil shock, and aluminum front and rear shock towers.

In response to the traction control on low-grip track to which many drift users have been paying attention in recent years, we created the “rear motor” layout which can maximize the rear traction without changing the total weight.

In this layout, a heavy motor is mounted on the rear overhang to distribute the load directly to rear tires.With the throttle on, users can apply traction most efficiently.We finally implemented the optimal balance with high driveability! This is a high-spec machine equipped with the popular graphite double-deck chassis, aluminum SLF oil shock, aluminum front and rear shock towers, etc. This package can even satisfy expert users.
