  New here.. RWD Drifter from NJ
Posted by: NightFury - 10-16-2018, 10:57 AM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

Hey everyone. My names Gio and I'm in Harrison NJ. I'm trying to find others to drift with and I'm sure there are a lot of people near by since there was the Hinoi Circuit for like 5 years. Closed last year. I just got a MST RMX 2.0 S that's just waiting on delivery of final parts. Before that I had a Yokomo Drift Package but this was around 8 years ago.. it's long gone. Took time away from hobby for some personal stuff and now I'm back. Please contact me through here or even easier if you contact my Instagram : @ nightfury.jp . My company will be producing accessories , decals , and full liveries for 1/10 drifters soon along with apparel and stuff for yourself. Hope to hear from you soon. Let's get a new drift track made in the 07029 area !!!

Precision and Quality RC Drift

Spartan Drift starts its baby steps in Rc Drifting at earlies of 2009..
These years the chassis and the parts were so few so we have to make a lot of custom parts for upgrading our chassis..

We started with 4wd  chassis like kyosho tf5 and hpi sprint etc... and after this video we step to the magic world of Countersteer RC Drifting.

In the next few years we make a lot of changes to chassis like changing the geometry of suspension,the percentage of the counter,different motors ,esc, servo ,offset of wheels , tyres and many other changes to keep us satisfied with our cars.


At the end of 2014  until now playing with RWD Chassis and keep continue ...


Keep Drifting Guyz around the world.

Hey all, just getting into the RC drifting. I've been wanting to get into for a long time, as far as using the higher end chassis and electronics. Anyone out there from the north Florida area that runs locally or know of a place where people meet up? Currently have a Tamiya XV01 to start out with an AWD setup, building a MST RMX 2.0S for the more scale sliding.

  Gyro quality question
Posted by: Flux904 - 09-17-2018, 10:26 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (1)

Ordered a Yeah Racing Hackslider with my chassis (still under construction) and I have a Spektrum DX5C remote with the transmitter with a built in gyro. Is there a difference in the quality from using either one or should I just run the one that's embedded with the transmitter for ease of tuning from the radio?

  Back from a bit of a hiatus
Posted by: Steve Fox - 08-31-2018, 07:46 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

After shelving my Sprint 2 project (I have a thread here for it) due to tighter budget, I’m back. The S2 is still collecting a bit of dust, but a buddy of mine gave me his MST FXXD and Sakura D3! They’re both pretty much stock and needed some electronics tinkering before I could start running em. They came with electronics and everything I needed but had been partially disassembled. Currently have stock Sprint 2 motor and ESC in the Sakura and a Novak Drift Spec in the MST. Probably gonna switch the 2 motors as the Novak seems to be a bit of a waste on the RWD car (plus the gyro on it was fried).

I gotta say I’m loving the Sakura though and it’ll likely become my main basher, even after I get the kinks worked out on the FrankenSprint. Any suggestions for upgrades on the D3? Wondering if I should gear it more towards top end, since it’s so light and I’m running on a low traction surface. 

All my cars are running 2s Lipos now.

Killerbody Subaru BRZ with Rocket Bunny Kit. 3 sets of LEDs, 2 home made, including knight rider style 10 LEDs(5 either side). Createx paints. I didn't use the canards that came with the kit as I thought they spoil the look. The only decals on the outside are the BRZ plates front and rear. Apart from that the body is clean.

  Help figuring out how to get started in ATL
Posted by: dboeren - 08-24-2018, 10:43 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (1)

I've never done R/C drifting before but I'm interested in getting started.

Since I'm a total beginner and not sure yet whether I want to be "all in", my initial impression from what I've read is that I should start with an AWD car.

I'm looking at two setups on rcmart:

$250 MST MS-01D

$220 Sakura D4

Both of these come with most of what you need, but I want to be sure I'm not missing any minor pieces.

The MST kit I think is supposed to be complete other than batteries & charger.  It also appears to have a better radio than the Sakura kit, being 3 channel instead of 2 and higher priced.  It does not have the gyro that the Sakura kit comes with which would add $23 extra and the 3rd channel can be used to control gain on the gyro.

The Sakura kit doesn't include a body (but you do get to pick your own body this way), plus I'm unsure whether it's missing some other minor items such as servo horn, pinion gear, motor wires (someone mentioned this in a review), etc...  I'm hoping that someone here who has purchased this kit can clarify all the pieces I would need to finish off the build.  Also, if I do need some of these bits, which ones should I buy?  i.e. - how many tooth pinion, etc...  I may also need a reamer for the body?

Is there any significant benefit to choosing one car over the other?  As far as I can tell they're both supposed to be pretty good cars with roughly similar levels of parts support and I *think* either one can be converted to RWD by removing the belts and possibly some other small modifications.

I also had a question about batteries.  I'm assuming that 2s lips are the way to go, but I've seen some offhanded mentions about battery weight affecting the car too.  Is the weight related to the mah capacity or what?  Are there specific batteries that are recommended?  How long should I expect say a 3000mah 2s lipo to last in a drift car - I imagine they may have different power requirements than a typical 1/10 offroad car which is what I'm more familiar with at this point.

I expect I'll mostly be driving either in the street in front of our house or parking lots - there's a big church across from our subdivision with a huge open parking lot I can use.  I work from home so I expect I can head over there over lunch 1-2 times a week, have 40-45 minutes to drive, then come back to work.

  Heat issues, some advice please?
Posted by: Shakotanvacation - 07-31-2018, 09:59 AM - Forum: Electronics - Replies (2)

GHey guys,

I’m having a blast tuning and learning to drift my YD-2. However, I have some issues with the ESC overheating. It hasn’t quit on my yet, but it’s definitely too hot even after some pretty kind hearted revving on hardwood for a few minutes. The motor gets pretty hot too, but the ESC is worse. I’m thinking my battery is the culprit, but wanted to ask here before I spend money anywhere.

Here’s my setup:
Gearing: been trying 18/84 (12.133 final) and 26/84 (8.4 final)
Motor: 9.5T (3900kv) This one
ESC Toro 160A
Battery: 5000 mAh 45C 7.4V LiPo

Could someone be so kind and explain to me what’s the cause of the scorching ESC? Thanks!!

  Hey there from WA State
Posted by: Xayrone - 07-28-2018, 10:58 PM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

Hello there everyone!

I'm completely brand new to drift rc in general, but I have been racing and working on rc cars here and there. Drifting always seemed fun, but I haven't really bothered to get into it since I had no one to really do it with. I recently got my buddy into rc with a hopped up TT02S with some decent drifting tires to kinda just get him into it since he drifts with his real car since I was getting out of touring for F1 and 1/12 Pan Cars. He's enjoyed it a bunch, and he eventually wanted to save up for a solid drift chassis.

I came home from another day at work with a gently used MST XXX-D VIP roller for $200. I've been looking into it through reviews and some articles, and it seemed like a good place to start. I don't intend to get too serious into it just, but I may hop it up down the line. My main intent right now is to really just have fun with my friend, but I would love to fine tune and improve the chassis. I've been hearing a lot that RWD seems to be the way to go, and I bookmarked the process on how to do it in any case. It's not ideal, but I'll just pop on a brushed silver can on it for now with a 2s lipo as I slowly research about the electronics I should get into for it. But if anyone does have any suggestions or advice, I'd gladly appreciate it! I hope to learn a lot more about rc drifting in general. Thanks for listening to what I have to say and I hope you all have a good one.

I own a yokomo type c that has a 1.5 cs setup and i finally decided to look for something that gives me more angle then the stock arms that come with it, not really looking for the bling factor so plastic ones are fine. I was going to just buy the yokomo high angle Type-C front conversion but just incase there is a better setup i figure i would ask

  Gyro/servo/handset compatibility issues
Posted by: Bensmev - 07-08-2018, 07:56 AM - Forum: Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) - Replies (1)

Hi all, new to the RWd drift thing, having issues with gyro and servo compatibility. The gyro constantly wants to reset itself. It’s smooth aslong as I steer slowly, but as soon as I give it full lock the gyro starts flashing and it stays locked until I completely stop and give it 10 seconds to reset. This also happens if I tap anything or get any bump mid drift. I’m having the issue with both oniski and slideology gyros . I’m using OMG Lp-cm07s servo, omg 120a esc, and a flysky gt3b handset. Have dialled the gyro in as much as I can without it trying to reset. Have also tried analogue servo which worked for about ten mins but caused over exaggerated wheel chatter rolling and static until the servo overheated and gave up , again with gyro dialled handset turned right down etc . I’ve heard the best option is too go and buy a sanwa mt4 or similar... is this actually gunna make it work though?

What's up ya'll. I'm new to RC drifting but not to drifting. The strategies are same but controls are different. I started of with an AWD rear motor set up. The AWD was not challenging enough and the rear motor did not give me that realistic feel so I modified it into a RWD front motor set up. It kicks butt. Originally I wanted to buy one but I have only found a few that are set up that way (Sukura D3, Bulldog, and one other) so I built my own. Now I'm slowly tuning my custom/modified chassis and am excited to share it with the RC drift community, especially at events. Pictures and videos coming soon.
