  First RC Build / Second RC
Posted by: hardus77 - 05-16-2019, 05:32 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Hello everyone,

New to this community and am excited to start. I currently have a MST RMX 2.0 RTR on the way as my first car. Once I get the hang of things with it and beat it up a little bit I’m hoping to take on my first build.
I want to attempt building a Datsun 620 drift truck out of a Exclusive RC Shell. If anyone has any input on the type on motor/chassis etc that I should use or even links I would greatly appreciate the help. Also how are these shells in terms of quality?
1/10 Scale 180mm Body with Fenders to 210mm Wheelbase 258-260mm

Thank you!

  XXX-R to D HT conversion help.
Posted by: Diddyrocker - 05-08-2019, 07:21 AM - Forum: Max Speed Technology (MST) - No Replies

Hey guys, so I have a XXX-R kit that I've had for a while and decided I want to convert it... I'm new to rc drifting but it seems like fun. The thing is I don't really have very much knowledge in what would make my XXX-R into a good drifter.... Anyone have a good setup they wouldn't mind sharing with me?


Also I have picked up a few hup-up parts already, but I'm stuck on where to go next... My biggest question is the with suspension mounts. I was going to go with the adjustable mount, but not entirely sure if they're worth it over the standard. And if I go standard, I'm not sure which sizes, I was thinking -5, two +5, and a +2.0?... and next I'm looking at the HT mounts. Just curious, is it worth going with the aluminum ones or are the plastics one ok.

I have few other questions. Like about what would make a good cs. And probably just the normal noob stuff... so can anyone help me out?

  Looking for advice
Posted by: Whiskersofsteel - 05-05-2019, 05:39 PM - Forum: Help Section - No Replies

Hey everyone!

A couple friends and I have been looking into getting into rc drifting and are really excited about it. We've been looking around at the drift mission guides and have found them very useful and have gotten us excited about getting into it!

We are looking for some advice though for getting started. I have some questions like what a good, budget friendly build? Where do I buy the chassis and parts, etc? Should we go rtr to save some money, or can we build the chassis for a similar price and have a better car?

Like I said, we are totally new to this so any help is greatly appreciated!

Hello all,
Looking to get back into Drifting. I use to be 50/50 & counter steer, looking into this whole RWD thing now. I've been looking at the Yokomo YD-2 platforms but not really understanding the S & E differences. Always looking for recommendations.

  RWD surface/chassis questions
Posted by: AleD123 - 04-21-2019, 07:54 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Hi all,

Just had a few questions in relation to the surface for RWD. Im lucky to have a couple of areas at my house that i currently use a CS setup. Ive been away from RC for a while and have returned to see that RWD dominates so i am willing to give it a go.

From what i understand its essential that the surfaces used for RWD must be completly smooth. The area that id like to use at my house is a fairly flat and fairly smooth concrete area. However it is definitely a different surface to the ones i come across on youtube that are smooth polished concrete. 

Ive attached a photo of the area, let me know your thoughts on if this would be a good area to practice RWD. 

Im yet to purchase a chassis and i feel as if the surface/area i have to play with is the only thing holding me back right now.
Yokomo is supported quite well in my area so i am looking at a yokomo YD2S Plus for a chassis. Any recommendations for tyres/motor/gyro would also be appreciated.
Happy to spend money for good quality product the first time round also.

Thanks 
Alex

  hpi E10 DRIFT Servo problem
Posted by: Iampappaj - 04-20-2019, 01:33 AM - Forum: Help Section - No Replies

Hi everyone, Iam new to RC and everything about it so iam gonna make a post in this thread. 

Anyways. about 1½ year ago i bought a hpi e10 drifting car. I tried out a few times and it worked just fine. 
Now when its time to take it out for a spinn again i noticed some problems suddenly appeared.

When iam steering to the right it works just fine... When iam steering to the left it works fine...Untill i reach i steer 100% to the left.. the wheel goes back to neutral possition.
Been trying to find some solutions on my own but cant seem to find any... 
this is what i tried:
Changing batteries
Restarting the system
Changing the reverse switch on the controller (that just mirrored the problem) so when i turn right 100% the wheels goes back instead of left

So if anyone have any idea what i should try i would appreciate it a lot

and sorry for my bad english [Image: smile.gif]

  Is the only drift mission available the race in the summit?
Posted by: stevenshaw - 04-19-2019, 12:01 AM - Forum: Asia - No Replies

I don't understand how there isn't more drift races if that is the only one. Why bother even putting the specs in if you aren't going to create races for them to play on

I have an old, but near perfect condition Skyline GTR R34 made by Nikko. I was wondering if anybody has this car and their experience with it? It came with some drift tires that have no treads and are smooth.

  Rmx s 2.0 asphalt setup
Posted by: ggk242 - 02-24-2019, 04:08 PM - Forum: Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) - No Replies

SETUP HELP! So i have an rmx s 2.0, built, all stock setup and it works really great on a wooden surface. Smooth control, nice drifts. Now I'm taking out onto asphalt as I don't have a track very near. Struggling to get the speed/consistency. I've tightened the diff screw so the wheels actually spin when I put on power now, but too much throttle and the wheels spin too fast, no grip and I drift really slowly, too little and the tyres grip too much and I can't drift. Any setup ideas? This is mst gold in the fronts, purple-red in the rear and mineral oil 15wt all around. Low cg motor mount and D like tyres I was recommended, I do t know the compound it's in japanese! Thanks!

Posted by: charlow7mgte - 01-20-2019, 06:46 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (1)

Hello everyone im Charlie from Central PA, ive Always wanted an rc drifter so I finally got one, didnt do much research at all but I think I made a pretty good start-up decision, its a redcat thunder drift AWD belt driven with a brushed motor and a Pandora RC Nissan 240sx body, the battery doesnt last long at all and the steering seems a little goofy but I think I can solve those problems relatively easy, it seems to be pretty in depth as far as suspension adjustment all I've done so far is slam it, if anyone has any input on these chassis as far as things I should do/look out for id appreciate it, converting it to RWD would be great im not a fan of the AWD very much but its my first one so now I know what i want next, planning on doing a complete inside/out build of my actual car. Anyway heres a couple quick pics of the car [Image: 857c7c01bd4bf5d984a0f4aa8cbaad2d.jpg][Image: bb0673f882843dfcc83ae91c80de8a58.jpg][Image: 70a9a3882eabde713c68e45ca3f7b8f9.jpg]

What do you guys think would be the best choice for me with further tuning and modifying options. Also which electrical components you would recommend. If possible please include the pricing. 

P.S. Hope its a right place to post this kind of thread.

Hopefully this is the correct spot to post this, and I have seen some similar posts, but as quickly as times change I didnt know if there is any new information. I just bought my first drift chassis, also my first kit. Trying to get back in the the rc thing. I have some electronics lingering from older stuff and a friends used traxxas. My big question I cant find much on is gear mesh. I want it to be as efficient and quiet as possible. I assume I'm accompanied in this quest. One more question, does anyone know of where to get all metal gears for the mst?
Thanks for any help. Chris

i everyone im Dan,

Im from the UK and have just got into RWD RC Drifting, i have previously been drifting 4WD at my local track.
I currently have a Yokomo YD-2 that im struggling to get to grips with 
[Image: 44726063230_9e3b0ec608.jpg]
[Image: 44726063210_8a4d929322.jpg]
My current setup on the car is one that i got off Yokomo's site for carpet use 

The parts on the chassis is

  • Quartz QZ502 Servo supported by a SkyRC GC301 Gyro soon to be Onisiki when it arrives
  • Vampire 9T Brushless motor uncensored
  • Sky RC 120Amp Brushless Sensorless ESC set to blinky mode  
  • Cheap Plastic Rims and Tyres with as much grip as a butter on a frying pan 
Im wondering if anyone can give me a guide in the right direction to making it drift like all them damn videos that persuade you to spend money on sick rc cars that may or not be for food shopping......... ='(

Anyway! the setup im running seems to have a Whole lot of angle and not much grip at all maybe it just me needing alot more practise.
