  MOTOR HELP (Sakura d4)
Posted by: Millsicorn - 03-07-2017, 08:15 PM - Forum: Electronics - Replies (3)

I just finished assembling my Sakura D4 and put all the electronics in. With the battery charged, I turned on the car and binded to my transmitter. After reversing channel 1 so my steering worked, I tried the throttle. The motor started turning but never gave me much throttle at all. The car moved at very slow speeds and it was obvious that something was wrong. I am running the "Gool Rc" brushless combo from amazon.(which I plan to upgrade later if I feel the need).

I came here after I went to a RC drift track last night.

It sparked my interest, and really I'm looking for some help.  I want to buy a libertywalk body kit, or pay for someone to make me a body kit to put onto a 1:10 RC drift car.  Can someone help me out?

  New to RWD
Posted by: Gramps50 - 03-05-2017, 10:53 AM - Forum: Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) - Replies (5)

I started drifting about a month ago. Started by doing donuts around trash can lids, progressed to figure 8's. Now been doing donuts and figure 8's around some cones. Been to the local drift track (carpet) several times with varied success. Which bring me to my point I want to venture into RWD so I will be getting a Yokomo YD2 in the next couple of days. When it's built I will be ready to wet my feet with RWD. My question is how do I start? From the beginning doing donuts, then on to figure 8's or is there a better way?

  Pipes BFU help.
Posted by: NascarSigEp - 03-02-2017, 03:13 PM - Forum: Help Section - No Replies

Hello everyone.
I have an MST Fxx-D RTR and have bought the Pipes BFU 2.0. I am running a Futaba 3PV transmitter and receiver. For whatever reason the BFU is only working when brake is engaged and held or in reverse and the brake lights are only active when under forward throttle. I have reversed channel 2 and still am getting the same results. I have tried 3 different BFU's with the same results. Can anyone help with advise to correct this?

Thank you!

  Steep Learning Curve?
Posted by: Dripp_e - 03-01-2017, 10:08 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (3)

New to RC Drift, not to the hobby of RC. I come from a offroad background, mostly bashing, some racing. I've built a Sakura D4 CS and have been trying to learn to drift, with varied levels of success. I went to my first event last week and I really had a hard time drifting the course without spinning, understeering, or crashing. I know I had some pretty aweful tires which could be part of the problem. I had trouble getting a consistent drift or linking corners. Car has massive understeer on entry and in drift. I was also told I should convert to RWD and learn that instead of bothering with CS.

short story long, is the learning curve that steep? Does setup play that big a role? Help a newb out. I run on carpet.

Setup for reference:
Yeah racing Gyro
Bluebird Servo
13.5 T Brushless sensorless running on 2s
Yokomo Super Drift Tire Zero One R2 (I have some MST Silver dot on order)
3 Racing Front one way diff
Flysky radio and reciever

  Help with fitting a 200mm wide body on my Sakura D3
Posted by: Nu2drift - 03-01-2017, 02:01 AM - Forum: Countersteer Setups - Replies (5)

Im wondering if anyone can help me with a dilemma... i recenrly purchased a sakura D3 chassis and i wanted to stay with rhe pink anodized theme on the wheels. So i searched and searched for a set with a pretty deep offset and the most i could find was only 3mm!! To add to the mayhem i bought a 200mm body to go on this chassis, so now im trying to see if anyone here has dealt with putting a 3mm offset wheel with a 200mm width body, and what width of hex hub they had to use to male this work?
By my calculations, if the stock width is 190mm with a +5mm offset wheel, and the wheels i got are only 3mm, then that brings it down to 186mm. So if i need to get to 200mm then i would have to compensate 14mm total (or 7mm per side) in order to achieve the 200mm total width... does anyone know offhand whay thickness the stock hex hubs are so i can add the 7mm to it and get that thickness of hex hub?!! Please help!

  First time purchasing a brush less system, Does this look right?
Posted by: santafe17 - 02-27-2017, 02:49 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (4)

So, I have a Tamiya TT-02 type S.

I plan to drift it as well as drive it with grip tires. so it's sort of a dual purpose basher.

I'm not trying to win or even enter races here, I just want to go faster than the motor that came with it.

I THINK I've settled on a good combo here, but I would LOVE some veteran opinions..

the question - Are these two going to work together?



And my second question, Do you know of something better at the same price point? my budget is a 100$ bill or less.

I found a good website: https://zoptamo.com/s-drifting-c-us , but turned out, that there is nothing about drifting. Maybe you could recommend me trainers?

Warning New, having a couple of problems. Help a ginger out???
Posted by: MurphysGinger - 02-23-2017, 11:44 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (1)

Hello All,

So, I am new to rc drifting. I just built my YD-2 chassis, and that went smoothly. 

1. I have all electronics in the car and it runs no problem. I'm having a gyro issue, however. When the car is turned on, the wheels go from left to right very frantically. While drifting they do the same thing. I'm not sure what I've done wrong, but I know it's probably something stupid on my part. The electronics are in, but not secured down. I did secure the gyro, so it would work (or so I thought.)

It's all Yokomo. 13.5 motor, esc, and the gyro is the YG-302. At first the direction was wrong, flipped the direction in the gyro and it counters correctly, but spazzes out left and right like crazy. Even when I drive it and stop. It'll sit there and still spaz out, unless I take the front of the car off of the ground, and then set it back down.

2. The Savox servo sounds like it's making a "crackling" or an "interference" like noise. It's worse when it's first turned on, and decreases a little the
longer it's on.

3. Is more of a body assembly question that boils down to my stupidity, I'm sure, but I want to get the chassis going more than anything.

Thanks for reading, hopefully someone can be my rc drift knight in shining armor.....no homo....

  E10 Steering Issue
Posted by: GianTyphoon - 02-20-2017, 03:18 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (4)

Hello DriftMission forum members.

I have had an issue with my HPI E10 steering whereby the wheels appear to be slightly 'toed' out. This could be normal but the main problem is that the wheels turn further in one direction than the other. Now, I have played around with the steering centring controls on the transmitter to make sure the wheels are straightened. I have also replaced my steering servo to try and fix the problem, however, this has made no difference. The left wheel - which will not turn as far as the right wheel - also seems to slightly lose drive when turned at full lock left meaning the car will sometimes misbehave mid-drift. 

Of course, this problem is incredibly frustrating and has resulted in the car not being used for a while despite me having loved using it when it still functioned properly.

Any help and / or knowledge as to a solution for this problem will be much appreciated.

  Compatible separate suspension mounts for MST FXX?
Posted by: exwhyzed - 02-17-2017, 11:20 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Hi All,

In looking at the MST FXX, it has 2.5mm suspension arm pins.  I think Yokomo uses the same size pins on their chassis, and so the Yokomo separate suspension mounts would work on the MST FXX (if i create a custom chassis plate).

Can anyone suggest any other separate suspension mounts, other than the Yokomo ones, that would also be compatible with 2.5mm arm pins?  Thanks in advance!

  Sprint 2 Battery Not Working
Posted by: snakenator - 02-16-2017, 09:08 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (7)

I recently purchased a sprint 2 and it works wonderful- most of the time. I bought it with five battery packs, a 7.2v 1800 mAh, 7.2v 3300 mAh, two 8.4v 4500 mAh, and an 8.4v 5100 mAh. They all work great except the 5100 battery. When I plug in and turn on the car it begins to beep and never stops. I thought it might not be charged so I charged it up but it still doesn't seem to work... Any ideas on what might be wrong and how to fix it?

  First Drift build, Looking for some advice on chassis.
Posted by: Coloursofdan - 02-15-2017, 06:05 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (9)

Hey guys I'm looking to build my first RC drift car. Got decent knowledge of drift physics and setups but new to RC drift. Been doing heaps of research and think I've narrowed it down to a few options.
Currently I'm looking at getting a AWD CS setup (eventually 1.8 - 2.0+cs) but could go RWD if its just better. From what I've seen RWD is a lot harder to get setup and needs a fairly controlled surface. Ill be Driving on asphalt surface mostly, got a car park 1 min walk down the road and the local track is also asphalt but much smoother. There is a carpet track 1 hour away.
Chassis I'm looking at are the MST MS01D S kit or Sakura D4 Awd with upgrades.

MST MS01D S kit is $264au
Sakura D4 awd kit is $133 + upgrades = $294au

Here are the upgrades I'm looking at:
3Racing Sakura D4 AWD Aluminum Slide Steering System
3Racing Aluminum One Way Tube
3Racing Sakura D4 Belt Tensioner Bearing
3Racing Sakura D4 Belt Tensioner Post
Yeah Racing Aluminum Adjustable Front Lower Suspension Arm
Yeah Racing Aluminum Adjustable Rear Suspension Lower Arm
Yeah Racing Aluminum High KPI Adjustability Steering Suspension Knuckle (or 3Racing Aluminum Knuckle Version 2)
= $161

1: Is the MS01d S stock for that price as good as the D4 with upgrades? Seems hard to justify spending extra for the MST. 
2: Are those upgrades the main ones i'll need? 
3: Are any of them not worth getting at the start?
Or is another option worth looking at?

Thanks for your time and knowledge.

  So Uhhh... I Guess I'll Introduce Myself...
Posted by: snakenator - 02-15-2017, 01:15 AM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

What it do everybody, it's your boi Snakenator!

So a bit about me:
-Livin in the BEAUTIFUL city of Bakersfield, CA... Worst air pollution in the U.S!
-Finishing off my senior year of high school
-My sole source of income is YouTube... so yeah, no job at the moment.
My YouTube channel is http://www.youtube.com/dawsonpitcher in case anyone cared, but its mostly just vlogs and crap, so idk if that would really be how you wanted to spend your time.

I have never done RC drift before in my life. Well, that's not true. I did mess around with my uncle's for about an hour and then also had a $20 "Super Drift RC Racing Car" Oh, I occasionally drift in real life... But that is the extent until now. I plan to get into RC Drift stuff at least a little, hopefully a bunch, and that is why I joined the forum: rather than make the mistake of going in blind and then going back and realizing what I should have done, I plan on doing as much research and getting as much help from y'all prior to investing big bucks, then I won't have to make as many mistakes along the way.

That's about it... Hope you can put up with me and my newb-ness for at least a month, then I hope to have done much more research on this hobby so I think it's fair game for you to press me when I make a dumb claim or don't know anything at that point.
