  Hello from Saskatchewan
Posted by: DeadOnImpact - 01-26-2018, 10:18 AM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

Hello everyone!
Drifting is finally starting to catch on in my city, so I'm hoping to expand my knowledge to help more people around here get into it and enjoy it. I've been a lonely parking lot warrior for about 5 years, but now there is finally the beginnings of a track in the works. It's polished concrete and a lot different than the rough and rocky asphalt I'm used to, but I'm getting my cars dialed in to (hopefully) their new home. I run an MST FXX-D and XXX-D.

  Sakura D4: Update ii
Posted by: MrAkhtar86 - 01-24-2018, 02:04 PM - Forum: 3 Racing - No Replies

New year!! Hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and had some time off.

Update on the D4:

[Image: 20180121_161703.png]

I'm quite happy with how the rear is setup; good amount of forward and lateral traction but I would like a little more visual movement. I will also be looking to have a play with a ball diff setup.

[Image: 20180121_161720.png]

The front however, I'm not too happy with it. The steering works great, good toe and Ackerman throughout but I'm thinking perhaps the geometry needs tweaking. Either that or I'm using the wrong springs; there seems to be some understeer.

Recent changes:
Overdose 5wt mineral oil
3Racing front spring (25 x 1.5)
Top L6, bottom 3

HPI 10wt oil
MST soft spring (32 x 1.2)
Top L1, bottom 1

Tweak on and keep drifting fun.

Hello, this is my first post but ive been 50/50 drifting before, i want to order a nice and cheap chassis kit for cs drifting and i saw the one pictured, to me it looks like a sakura d3 clone and i'd hope that is true so i can use their parts and hop ups too.

[Image: 1-10-Scale-Assembly-Red-Car-Frame-Kit-al...20x220.jpg]

The thing i really like is that its only 94 dollars and has a lot of aluminum parts on it, also the sakura is mostly pink but i like the blue better.

Hi, newbie to the drift scene. I have a hpi sprint 2 that I'm getting ready to run. Now I know it's not that good, but I don't have the money to get a new car so is there any hop ups for a different car that is compatible the the sprint 2 platform? I've seen the whole suspension kit on Asia tees, but is there anything else? Thanks for the help

  FXX-D VIP SSG to FMX-D chassis conversion
Posted by: Readman - 01-08-2018, 03:49 AM - Forum: Max Speed Technology (MST) - Replies (2)

Hi guys,

I am fairly new to the drifting scene and recently bought an FXX-D VIP. At my local track there is a lot of people using Yokomo Yd2s and other rear or mid mounted motor chassis so I thought I would go with something a little different with the FXX with the front mounted motor. I instantly realised the car to be way slower as the weight is greater towards the front which means it’s very hard to keep up with others on the track. 

I bought a rear battery mount which places a lot more weight over the rear end and then was told about the FMX conversion. My question is, has anyone used the existing FXX chassis but modified it to fit the mid motor mount? I can’t seem to find anything to give me dimensions so I can square the FMX and FXX chassis’s up against each other to see if the front and rear end holes all align. I do realise I do need the motor mount, drive shaft and upper deck but I don’t want to spend another £80+ on the FMX deck if I can modify my current one. 

If anyone has done this modification or knows if it can be done it would be a bit help.

  Can't bind hobbywing esc to mst ms-01d
Posted by: RC DRIFTER1738 - 01-03-2018, 01:17 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (6)

Hi guys,
As suggested by the people in the previous thread, I went to my local hobbystore and picked up a hobbywing 1060 esc. I asked the people there if they could take a look at my drift car and they didn't even know what mst is LOL. So I managed to connect the esc and everything, but I can't bind the transmitter to the esc. Whenever I use the transmitter, the car therefore doesn't move. I even looked at the instruction manual for both car and esc. The receiver gets power, esc is turned on but flashes and even the transmitter work. If someone knows anything about this problem, please help me.

Hey guys,

Just scooped up a Pandora RC 194MM body to start replicating my S13 coupe. What is everybody using for a chassis for these? 

More importantly, I'm going to need a hood vent and roof wing for mine, as i'd like my RC to be as IDENTICAL as possible. What are you guys using for those?

Heres a few pictures of my coupe

Warning First RC Drift Car
Posted by: AlaskaRc907 - 12-19-2017, 11:44 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (4)

Hi there this is my first time on these forums and I would like some feedback on a decision I'm trying to make. I live in Alaska where there are no true RC drift tracks but I am planning on making one up at my cabin where I have a large space to put a fun little layout. I am a sort of drift prodigy to everyone who knows me knows that if it can slide I'll slide it(Dirtbikes, Snowmobiles Side By Sides four wheelers and full on trucks). I want to buy a fun car that can be upgraded and will be reliable. However, I am worried that I'll learn and surpass 50/50 and CS drifting and go to a whole new setup. I think if I went straight to RWD that i would be able to learn it without to much trouble but am also a little worried about getting a good chassis so I can learn how to drift a little. I have done a lot of research and am currently leaning toward an MST FXX-D S or an HPI sprint 2 (If i can ever find one). Please give me some suggestions and tell me if I would be able to just go straight to RWD. Thanks for the Help!

  sakura d4 sport black editon vs standard d4
Posted by: DrifterHoboATL - 12-15-2017, 03:35 PM - Forum: 3 Racing - Replies (5)

whats up guys. im looking to get into rc drifting and ive been doing a lot of research. ive never done anything more advanced than an xmod(hahaha) when i was younger. after some research ive settled on a sakura for my first build based on them being relatively inexpensive, a good following and good amount of aftermarket parts, and ive heard its a good kit to learn on both for building and driving. 

ANYWAY, my initial thought was to buy a d3 cs but i have found that the rwd is the favorite/standard now so i started looking into the d4 rwd. i then learned the d3 and d4 are discontinued (so the d3 i was looking at on amazon was probably a fake knockoff). This has all lead me to the the d4 sport black edition rwd. i just wanted to pick some brains about the new monoshock setup up front and to see how you guys would compare the overall quality to the regular d4 rwd. i realize ill probably have to buy a second hand standard d4 rwd if i decide to go that route which is a con for me because i was really looking forward to building my chassis and personalizing my build. 

Like I said, i am brand new to this scene and would love to talk to someone about these 2 chassis and just rc drift in general. any advice or pro tips are MUCH appreciated.

what is up guys. i am from atlanta and am just starting to get into the rc scene. the most experience ive had with rc was an xmod when i was younger haha. right now im looking into getting the sakura d3 cs chassis for a starter and researching what components to put into it. ive heard the cs has quite the learning curve but im looking forward to learning the technique. like i said, i am brand new to the rc scene so any advice, links, pro tips are much appreciated. ive been looking for some good sakura builds on these forums but being new to the rc world i know close to nothing about all the components i need and what to look for when picking certain components. kind of learning this whole thing as i go.

Image Traxxas Rustler ~ Sand Buggy Turned Drift Car
Posted by: SlammedRustler125 - 12-08-2017, 05:25 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (4)

So, I'm VERY new here... The name's Everett, and boy, have I got a build to show you. Picture this - you have 2 rustler chassis (1 velineon brushless, one good ol' brushed) and was getting bored of the offroad cycle - Run, Break, Buy, Repair, and was starting to be very interested in drifting. And voila, I order a set of drift tires, a set of rims and a Tamiya Torque Tuned RS540 barrel motor. After dialing my suspension setup and tire composites, and doing tons of tiny things to the build, My dad (Who raced RC's in the 90's and lost very rarely) found his old Acto-Power Touring Special Motor From the early 90s and gave it too me, as he is now building RC crawlers and has very little interest in racing anymore. Anyways, After some slight research on these motors which are now discontinued apparently put out 440g/cm of torque and capable of over 30000rpm If you are running advanced timing. Just got it put in tonight as I have been busy with school, and have nowhere to run it because I live in Canada and currently have over a foot of snow and this car has 0 ground clearance. Been quite the tangent so you can already tell I feel right at home on the DriftMission forums. Only having slight issues with uploading my pictures as thier filesize is far too big
