  New to the scene
Posted by: Vengeance1968 - 04-19-2018, 07:38 PM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

I have been into RC everything since 1992... boats, planes, helis, cars, trucks, drones, turbines, gassers, nitro and electric.

I am mainly into U4RC these days but just picked up a HPI Hoonicorn.

I know it isn't a serious drift platform. I have however searched for ways to make it better in both performance and scale appearance.... i.e. interior, lighting, etc.

What if anything is there to enhance the RS4 Sport3 platform other than HPI's options offerings.

Any help would be appreciated.
TIA

Here are a couple of my U4 rigs...[Image: d92f3700faf8e5d016d3b4a092fb01da.jpg][Image: b3e18eeaf86c701f829d55abe38f43ba.jpg][Image: 4a6a8ba2c1213abbb6ecbb2a63af5828.jpg][Image: a0023c2f35cde19f3e472b009b4b9e71.jpg][Image: 1a773200516f020cfc37aff739f872b6.jpg][Image: 76f6c0ada40d08840414780d2e0c0763.jpg][Image: 6f3577519aa548bfb9da7d91f08ec0b2.jpg][Image: 224b84d5cc07a8fab16ca3a19bf6eb09.jpg][Image: 5dd5d6f72f2fb48952f2985092cb80e7.jpg][Image: 097b3748ffc1b74173335a72115d6727.jpg]

  NJ drifter, first RWD car
Posted by: LSK - 04-10-2018, 10:06 AM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (2)

Ordered an MST RMX 2.0 S, been drifting AWD sprints and RS4s for 10 ish years on and off, been seeing a lot about the RWD high CS stuff and decided to give it a shot.

All of my spare RC money has gone into crawlers and Mini Zs in the past 3-4 years, started to get a little stale so here I am.

Any pointers going from AWD to RWD?

  Hello from yet another newbie
Posted by: FriktionRC - 03-31-2018, 09:57 AM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (1)

Hi folks ,

Thought I'd follow on the heels of other new members and introduce myself. Am very new to drifting ( I know what it is but was never really into it) and also new to rc drifting although not new to RC. I'm returning to RC after +30yrs by purchasing a 2wd Traxxas Slash. To give you an idea of how long ago I've been away from the scene....my last RC was a Tyco Turbo Jet Hopper (which I recently discovered was still around had when my folks cleared out their loft!!!).

So why drift rc? Well, like the reason for buying the Slash, I wanted to get into it after seeing many many YouTube videos. I didn't go down the 'standard' route (if there is such a thing) when I picked out my initial drift car. I wanted something cheap that I could find easy to use and also modify....so, I purchased a 4wd brushed Banzai FTX S15 second hand (got it for less than half price of a new one). Came with everything and was in good nick apart - so well pleased with that.

I don't have any tracks near me so though I would like to take it round a track I want to get into the body modding side of things until I find a decent place to run it. Also I've recently gone brushless in my Slash so at some point I would like to upgrade the stuff in the FTX S15 too.

I'll populate my profile and upload some pics as and when the build gets started. In the mean time please be patient if I keep asking questions - I know nothing about all of this hahahahaha.

Cheer's all
PS, if anyone is from the UK pls say hi as it seems that the majority of folks on the forums and sites I've been on are from the other side of the pond

='( I broke the front lower control arm, the ball cap part. I can find the actual arm but not the ball cap i have the Sakura D4 Black with a mono shock setup. 
Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where to get a full upgrade, arm and ball cap. All the aluminium upgrades i've seen still use that composite ball cap with the aluminium control arm.

  CS to RWD
Posted by: slidewaysNYC - 03-22-2018, 07:11 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (3)

Hey guys, I recently made a post in the introductions section.  I haven't been in the RC world for quite some time now.  I had an older TA-06R that I decided to get up and running.  I was attempting to CS the TA-06R and I ordered some pulleys to give it a shot....lets just say things didn't work out lol.  I think I will just make the leap to RWD but I can't decide on what chassis to get.  I've boiled the options down to the MST RMX 2.0S vs the new Yokomo YD-2E.  I've seen that the original YD-2 had some issues with steering but they have apparently been corrected in the YD-2E kit.  As for the MST, everyone raves about it but I'm not sure if I'll have any parts support in my area.  Also, the high motor mount in the RMX is supposed to be better than the motor mount in the YD-2E....I'm not sure why?....still a noob! However, apparently I can get a high motor mount for the YD-2E?! As you can see this is all very confusing for a beginner!

Both kits are around the $200 range so price isn't a distinguishing factor.  Keep in mind, I'll probably just drift this around in the parking lot and that's about it.  Not trying to tandem with anyone, enter any competitions, or become a drift master! With that in mind, which chassis would you guys suggest for me and what would be the essential hop-ups you recommend? MST RMX 2.0S vs Yokomo YD-2E.  

Thanks!!

  Hello, Newbie from Vancouver BC
Posted by: bradr - 03-18-2018, 09:44 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (4)

Hello everyone,

Newbie from Vancouver BC.

First time with RC drifting and trying to learn with a 1:28 scale drift car to see how much I enjoy it before putting down any extra money.  Figured it was a good entry as it shares all of its parts with the chassis that we are using for 1:28 RCP racing (everything except diffs and tires) so its a good way of getting into it.

So far I've been doing all of drifting indoors on a carpet track at the moment with barriers both removed and added trying to get a better feel for drifting (removed trying figure 8's etc...).  Having a good time, but definitely harder than it looks (at least for me.)

I found this forum while trying to learn more about one-way diffs, cs ratios and such as I was curious as to what they did / how they affected things.  No plans to make changes to the stock setup, want to get a good feel for it and take it as far as I can after which I may start to mess with existing settings 1 at a time to see how it changes things.

Basic Setup

  • AWD
  • Locked front diff
  • Locked rear diff
  • Hard drift tires

Posted by: slidewaysNYC - 02-10-2018, 03:24 AM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (2)

Hey guys, I haven't been on this site in years!...not sure if anyone is still here!  ='(

Anyway, about 2-3 years ago I built a TA06-R chassis and its been sitting and collecting dust since then.  I want to finally put this thing to use! I was debating getting a Yokomo YD-2S chassis but I don't think I'm ready for RWD just yet....zero drifting experience.  I would prefer to learn with my TA06-R.  I was browsing through this site and found a few threads on the TA06, but they are from ages ago.  What I would like to know is, what parts should I upgrade on this chassis to make it suitable for drifting.  Also, I would love to CS this chassis.  I understand the concept of CS well but I have no idea of what specific parts I should get and where they can be found.

Here is a link to the chassis.  You can see all the optional parts it came with, I'm not sure what's good here and what isn't!

Here is the chassis as it sits right now:

I too am new to the idea of the drift rigs and would like to give it a shot! I've run everything from, Offroad carpet and dirt to sedan carpet and asphalt, pretty much everything under the sun. 

I don't want to dump a ton of cash into a kit but also realise you get what you pay for when it comes to RC.  AWD or RWD doesn't matter which unless there is a massive difference between the two in handling if one happens to be easier than the other to tune? 

Hobby King has this rig for a tempting price tag but is this rig utter trash?
https://hobbyking.com/en_us/blaze-dfr-1-...tore=en_us

I've looked at these two rigs from Yokomo
http://www.vertexrc-usa.com/YOKOMO-YD-2S...-YD2S.html
http://www.vertexrc-usa.com/yokomo_drift...-dp8-.html

I've seen posted here the MST and the Sakura are good starting points with potential for upgrades. 

3 Racing Sakura
https://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/product_...p_id=12496 

That single shock in the front is definately interesting!!

MST
https://www.amainhobbies.com/mst-rmx-2.0...61/p689802

Seems like all most all MST kits are backorder at this point same with Yokomo.

Team Associated
https://www.teamassociated.com/cars_and_...lub_Racer/

I know this one isn't specific to drift but would it be easily setup for it?

Now I have done a fair amount of reading on kits for MST, 3racing and Yokomo but not sure how comparable they are to each other. Id really like being able to buy upgrades here and there as I go so being able to have plenty of optional parts is a plus. I all ready have electronics so I'm good there just looking for some insight on which one anyone would say is good for starting out with.
I really don't want to spend 500 bucks on a kit for something I may not enjoy as much as I think I will. 250 ish to 300 price range I think I can live with as a loss if I don't like it.

Anyone out there with any opinions or insight would love to hear it!!

Hey guys,
My FXX-D S has served me well, but the amount of slop in the steering has been a constant annoyance for me. I've tried shimming it in various places but the slop just seems to come from everywhere. I've been looking around at upgrading the steering and came across the steering rail kit similar to the XXX-D's. I was wondering if anyone else had tried it out and could offer any advice on it?
