Hi guys! 
(slightly late intro but here it is)

My name is Ryan and I'm a 22 year old engineering student here in Washington. I've been into RC drift for the last 4 and a half years but its been an off and on hobby. My older brother got me into the hobby and I bought his HPI Sprint 2 Drift when he was getting rid of it for my first chassis. After taking a trip out to KongRC in Lynwood and talking with JJ, I made the switch to an MST FXX-D which has been my only chassis for the last 3 years. I have been away at school and the quarantine has had me diving headfirst back into the hobby and this forum has really got me excited to drive again. Still an amateur at painting and building bodies but its one of my favorite parts of the hobby!

this is the link to the photos of my build!

(if anyone can help me figure out how to post photos directly onto the thread that would be greatly appreciated!)

  Having Sign In issues but hello anyway
Posted by: JoeVee - 01-13-2021, 02:00 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (1)

greetings Driftmission, Vallejo California here.  My name is Joe and my username is Chiefy707 and I was actually an admin here once upon a time.  Seem to be having an issue signing in on the old login.

Either way it's been years!  I think it's good I started a new acct anyways, back then I was all over MST's nutsack.  I've been on a RC break for a few years now, took a break from drifting and got into racing.  Now just the other day I got a Traxxas Maxx and suddenly I'm motivated to finally build up my Usukani D4.  I got a great place to drift so here's to hoping this time it really sticks.

Wilke if you're reading this my other acct I'm not getting any emails for a password reset

  RC Arlos and APlastics bodies?
Posted by: TwoSlickRyan - 01-10-2021, 01:24 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (2)

So this is my first post on here so hoping this is the right location.

More of a general question but I have been buying ABC bodies for a long time now and I like the quality of the lexan, the thickness as well as the realistic scale. Anyways, I wanted to get some opinions of the quality of the RC Arlos bodies and APlastics. How do they compare to other brands? I have been seeing them for sale and the BMW's that RC Arlos is coming out with look pretty sweet but I don't know if they are great quality.
Any opinions or advice is appreciated! ^^

  Getting back to the hobby
Posted by: jdking15 - 01-08-2021, 09:52 AM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

Hows is going? My name is Adam. I have been into RC since I was young. Recently getting back into the hobby. So for anyone around in the mid to late 90's I have an HPI RS4 Pro. Belt drive AWD with one-way pully driving the front diff. Seems like it might be a good start to a decent drift build. Does anyone have experience with this chassis? What mods should I look into doing.  I also have a Tamiya TT01D but feel thats not really worth starting a build from. Any help would be appreciated. I do still have all the spare parts that originally came with the chassis. Thanks for adding me.

  Need help with Supra (A80) TT02 build
Posted by: whatsupcuz - 12-27-2020, 02:37 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (1)

I have the Tamiya Supra (A80) TT-02 and am struggling with step 32. The wheelbase is standard and I can't get BB3 (plastic bearing) to fit inside parts A1 or A11 so the MA7 shaft can be between the bearing and A14. What would cause the bearing not to fit? The inside diameter of A1 and A11 is smaller than the outside diameter of the bearing BB3. Also, I can not pull the wheel axles out any further out of A1 or A11.

Posted by: Dmgp1 - 11-28-2020, 09:36 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Hey everyone, so I recently took my an old tamiya trf418 out of storage, I have taken the car completely a part to basically rebuild it. I have been watching a few rc drift videos including rcsparks recent vid with afro and let say I have been wanting to get into drifting. I dont really have the funds right now to purchase a nice chassis dedicated to drift.
how hard or is it even possible to turn my trf418 into a drifter? What would I need to start this conversion from racer to drifter?

Thanks for any advice

Hey everyone so joined the forum as I previously had an MST rwd car for a short amount of time (didn’t even really get to use it) that I paid over RRP for as it turned out, and ended up selling it but looking at properly getting into drifting again, and know someone I can buy a car off, but I’m currently looking at getting a 1/10 shell custom painted, particularly an S13 shell in white and gold two tone, but need to find a shell and someone to paint it, and willing to pay 250 USD for the right one (can stretch it a bit). If anyone is willing to do it please let me know via DMs or in the discussion :)

  Hello!
Posted by: DriftViper83 - 09-17-2020, 10:13 PM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

Hello everyone, I am new to Driftmission and new to RC drifting. I am currently running a 1/10 scale Redcat Lightning EPX drift stock with an XQ Toys blue Viper TA body I have modified for the purpose. I removed the original LED lights and installed blue halo headlights. The tail lights are still a future project but this thing is still insanely fun to drift with and I have noticed my skill improve with each run. It has turned a lot more heads since I opted to switch to the Viper body and no longer run with the stock Redcat body. I give full credit for the idea to the pro level RC drifters on YouTube as I am not the first to put this body on a 1/10 drift car, I am only taking the next step after as they didn't bother putting lights in theirs. I figured the headlight and tail light bezels are already there, why waste the opportunity to up the cool factor? Wtf I look forward to meeting everyone.

  FMX 2.0 thoughts/comments thread
Posted by: gaijin - 07-23-2020, 06:31 PM - Forum: Max Speed Technology (MST) - Replies (2)

Hey all

Didn't see an FMX 2.0 thread so figured i'd start one.

I just got an FMX 2.0, built it up, drifts pretty well but it certainly doesn't sit at the correct ride height per the manual. (6mm front and rear supposed to be)

anyone else running one and ran into a problem like this?

i dialed the shock preload right out, and the front is still sitting pretty high in the air like maybe 10mm, with the rear, having the softer shocks, sits down nice and low. I've triple checked all my settings so a bit confused why. dampers are built correctly and all equal

  how to keep your forum alive...
Posted by: gaijin - 07-22-2020, 10:24 PM - Forum: DM Forum - No Replies

Hi guys

I'm new here and got frustrated really quickly so came here to give you some feedback. First of all great work, its clear to me really quickly, that this site has the potential to be the best dedicated RC drift forum on the internet.

However, I started looking around and I see information for RWD drift RC spread across 10-20 separate forums with the same information.

I believe this is what has resulted in people not knowing where to post, and things end up somewhat everywhere, so the community gets very fragmented.

I suggest you look at a way to reduce the huge number of sub-forums you have, and try and consolidate the community a little more, otherwise you will continue seeing what you're seeing now.. which is thousands of views per single post(!!!!) and not much interaction.

You've got several forums here that haven't been posted in since 2018 or even 2017. Those are your first candidates for removal/consolidation.

You've also got 2 dedicated RWD drift forums. One is for... " Chassis, Styles, and Product Discussions " and the other is for " Chassis Setups " ... why? just bring them all in together... its not like you're getting hundreds of post per day and need to separate it all out...

Some of these entire forums could just be a sticky post in the top of another single forum.

thanks
