  Deciding new car
Posted by: baris41 - Yesterday, 05:15 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Hi guys, 

I am an off-road guy, just wanna start drifting. So i found this cheap second hand Yokomo Drift Dib Blue Ed. cheap. Many upgraded parts, you can see it in the picture. It has speed pasion 10,5 t , savox 1257, oneway 1/8 cs difs. What do you think about this option? Or should i buy a new TT02D, E10, RS4 or Sport 3 ? If you have other opinions please share. Thank you in advance.

  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

Hey folks, I just started my journey into RC drifting this past week. Starting off with a YD-2E w/gyro kit and from there it has ballooned into a full-blown passion for the hobby. Looking forward to gaining some knowledge and sharing experiences of both rc products and operation. Anybody on here with the same kit have any tips and tricks?

  Midnight Sun Drift Videos
Posted by: TheColeman - 06-22-2020, 11:42 PM - Forum: RC Drift Videos - Replies (8)

Midnight Sun is a group that has started up in Oregon, based out of the Salem area. We run when we can where can and always have a good time.
This thread will just be a spot where I drop all our videos.

We are always open to others coming out, and you best believe it, it you come run with us you'll get caught on video by the camera car!

The camera car is an old HPI Pro 3 4wd race car that's been repurposed. Converted to RWD with a custom built high steer angle front end. Setup for both front and rear cameras. Runs on rubber tires to allow it to get in and out of tight spots quick always chasing those perfect slides. It's still a work in progress and soon a custom shell will be getting add to give it a nice clean look while out on the track filming.

As for the sliders in the group, we've pretty much got the market covered!

Enjoy the videos. Oh and be sure to support our Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube channel. Just search Midnight Sun RC, should be pretty easy to figure out from there!

(Oh and we're all crawler nuts too, so you might see some of that on the social media pages as well, don't worry, I wont post that stuff here.)

Hello,

I am new to RC drifting and I'm trying to mount a new bodyshell on my 100% stock Sakura D4 RWD Black Edition however, the wheels protrude out by a lot. Do I need offset wheels and by how much?

Also, are there any suggestions as to what hop ups I need to have to make it drift proper?

Attached photos for bodyshell!  ^^

Hi all
I'm looking to buy/build a RC drift car.
To begin with I just want it to drift around the house, and I want to do it as cheap as possible, but also with the opportunity to upgrade later. I don't know what size or anything I should look for. I also got a 3d printer which I would like to use if I could save some money that way.
Hope you can help me out!

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.

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.

  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.
