  Novak Drift Spec
Posted by: robb41488 - 10-27-2012, 01:06 PM - Forum: Electronics - Replies (6)

This is a discussion on the Novak Drift Spec Combo w/ 13.5t ss motor. (nov3073)

I purchased this combo set when it was first released for my tc-fd. After putting it through its paces i really like it.
I feel as though this set is perfect for a begginer as it's a little slower then most advanced or seasoned drifters are used to. With that being said it allowed me to learn the paces of drifting a counter steered chassis even though i would like to consider myself a seasoned drifter. This combo is a perfect match for anyone looking for a fairly priced unit (under 150) and a unit thats going to last. Normally i would use Hobby Wing setups but after using this setup i would highly recommend the switch. I have also replaced the 13.5t motor with a 10.5t "hot" trinity torque monster D3.5 recently. After many hours of use the ESC is still going strong even though it is only recommended for a 13.5t max. Here at drift mission we don't normally recommend doing such a drastic upgrade over manufacturers specs unless you want to risk the life and longevity of your ESC. This should be done at your own risk and discretion.

You can find this combo on our blog at http://driftmission.com/team-novak-drift...ss-system/

  Tamiya TA-06 Pro
Posted by: wilke - 10-27-2012, 11:15 AM - Forum: RC Drift Chassis Picture Gallery - No Replies

Driftmission finally got our hands on a second-hand Tamiya TA-06 Pro chassis with a VBC Racing conversion kit. The TA-06 is Tamiya’s continuation of the very popular TA series 1:10 scale 4WD belt drive chassis. The most notable different from the TA-05/TA-05v2 is the newly redesigned IFS (internal front suspension) system; the dampers are now in-line with the chassis. Another major change is the motor position; it is now situated in the rear center position of the chassis, similar to Tamiya TA-04 chassis. This chassis is currently very popular in the RC Drift community in Japan, so we wanted to see what the hype was all about.

  • Tamiya TA-06 Pro Kit
  • VBC Racing Conversion Kit
  • Aluminum option parts from Eagle Racing
  • Aluminum option parts from Weld Overdose
  • Countersteer parts from Tamiya
  • Countersteer belts from Tetsujin
