  3D Printing an Entire RC Drift Car - Need Suggestions!
Posted by: Kolektiv - 07-02-2018, 02:09 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Hello dear forum users,

          I am planning on making a 3D printed RC drift car. I own 2 cars 4 planes and a drone (so I am not new to RC but am new to RC Drifting) and have been using my 3D printer for about half a year now (I have decent experience with modeling in AutoCAD, Fusion360 and others).

          Since I have never owned a Drift car Any suggestions you have are welcome. Did anyone else here already make this, what material are the tires made out of, will a plastic chassis hold up to the force a drift car puts on it, how important are the suspensions (are they just for looks or do they actually provide some sort of improvement to preformance or something else, which parts do you reccomend I upgrade to metal etc.

BTW, I am building this with the scraps of my 1/12 buggy so i can pick up lots of spare non plastic parts if necessary.

            Hi from Chicago. Working on a TT02 (and hoping for that TT02 rwd conversion from Yeah Racing). Also eyeing a XXX-D...would this be decent to convert to RWD too? My shell is a Matrixline '12 Beetle.

  Exceed RC drift star RWD setup
Posted by: Keylime Slides - 06-08-2018, 03:03 PM - Forum: Other Manufacturers - Replies (1)

Hello! I am a fairly new drifter and do not want to spend 200-400 on a D3 or MST, as I am saving for an Actual track car, but I already have an exceed RC drift star chassis, and I have tried running it RWD before but there was simply not enough steering angle to control the rear end in a drift, so my question to you is: Do you know of any angle kits or other hop ups that are compatible and increase steering angle? I already know about the aluminum hop ups, but none of them actually increase angle.

  First RC Drift Build Questions
Posted by: HerosMustRise - 05-22-2018, 01:56 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (2)

I have a few questions about the Sakura D4, which I have read a lot about (most reliable for cheap). Just for a basis what are some pros and cons, I mainly ask because I don't know what to look for as I'm new to this.
Just some things that make it good in its price range and bad as well.

I have recently discovered the vast community that surrounds the idea of drift RC. I am interested in this, since my life has always been about the idea of cars. I am definitely new to this scene as I have no clue what I am doing. Please bear with me, as I will be learning and experiencing a new hobby. Thanks for having me!

  Anyone familiar with Sanwa electronics ?
Posted by: tt01 project - 05-09-2018, 09:46 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (1)

Hello there 

I rushed and bought a couple of Sanwa electronics , I didn't read and research but thankfully everything I bought so far is compatible.
I currently have the.

Now I need a servo but it seems I'm limited to certain servos due to incompatibility with my other electronics.

Info on the MTS
●Please do not use Analog Servo for SHR mode or SSR mode.
If analog servo is used for SHR mode or SSR mode, the servo will be broken and will not work.
Digital servo (SRG series, Digital ERG series, SDX series) can be used both for NOR mode and SHR mode.
●SSR mode can be used only by SRG series servo.
●In SHR or SSR mode, BL-RACER, BL-FORCE, BL-SPORT, F2000, F2200, F3000, F3300, SBL-01, SBL-02 and SBL-03CR do not work.
Please use NOR mode for the above ESC.
●SV-08, HV-10, HV-12, F2500 can work by NOR/SHR MODE.

I really wanted to use this servo PGS-LH TYPE-D but it seems like its incompatible with their only drift gyro Wtf go figure 
Not Compatible with CODE 5 (M12, EXZES Z, MT-4S, MT-4, MT-S) What the hell is code 5 ?
In case of using with incompatible Gyro for SSL (SGS-01C/SGS-01D), the servo cannot be set by transmitter through SSL function.  Who's the genius in R&D ? 

I'm thinking my best bet is the SRG-BLS Ver.2 

I don't know though because it's my first attempt at something sophisticated like this.
Any thoughts ?

Exit Newbie Questions :s
Posted by: SircaM - 05-05-2018, 05:41 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (2)

Hi Guys, im new on RC DRIFT.
So, recent i bought Sakura D4 Black Edition RWD Chassi, but basically is my first project. before i had TT-01 E (i bought complete kit TT 01 XB).
So my questions is:

  1. Atm i have weak motor (Tamiya Super Torque) and weak esc, but next month i wanna buy another motor and esc (this month the money went away =L ), and i install that motor and esc on SAKURA D4 with gyro GC-301, and some weak SERVO. When i change motor/esc/servo, can i do drift correctly? i mean atm i can do only small drift, if i try big curves i lose control.
  2. I need some kit for stearing? or can use original kit at the beginning?
To consider: i run on asphalt.

Sorry for bad english, and thanks in advice.

  1st 1/10 drift Project , Sakura D4.
Posted by: tt01 project - 05-01-2018, 11:46 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (9)

Hello there 

I have been updating this post , I received the majority of the stuff I ordered , waiting on a few , will update this when I start putting everything together by the end of June .

I wanted to build a  Tamiya 1/10 TT01E Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evo.II and turn it into a drift car.
I haven't bought anything yet when I initially posted this , I was just developing a shopping list in hopes of getting feedback and advice on choices and alternatives.
Why the TT01E ?
Simply for the body. On discount but didn't buy it , might not buy it at all or I might still get it LOL conflicted between want and waste.
Whats the plan? I have been editing this post as I buy stuff or decide on parts and specs
- Chassis  
3Racing Sakura D4 RWD Pre-Assembled Chassis . Bought on discount
This has the mono shock mounted on the upper front arms , I don't know if they call this V2 or Advanced Chassis.
- Gyro 
Sanwa drift gyro Bought on discount
Can set up from your transmitter , using gain adjustment 
- ESC 
Sanwa/Airtronics Super Vortex Type-D Sensored Brushless Drifting ESC Bought on discount
●Back cancel function

●Boost Zero displaying function
●SSR/SHR/NOR automated recognition & displaying
●8 program mode equipped
 ・Throttle response (new function)
 ・Neutral Brake rate
 ・Drive feel
 ・Neutral Brake feel
 ・Brake feel
 ・Boost timing (Advanced timing)
 ・Turbo / Revolution limiter ( New function )
 ・Power mode / Active throttle ( New function )
●SSL function
- Motor  
Onisiki 8.5T Bought on discount  Omg  8.5T ? what were you thinking? Relax , I can lower the timing manually on this specific motor and automatically via the Sanwa remote hopefully.
[Image: onisiki-oni-6406-5.jpg]
- Wheels & Tires 
MST offset changeable wheels and MST drift tires Maybe Next Month 
- Servo 
Bought on Discount ,Blue Bird BLS , Fastest + Cheapest + wide power range.
I really wanted the PGS-LH TYPE-D but unfortunately it isn't compatible with the transmitter nor the gyro.  ='( 
- Transceiver Set  
Sanwa MT-S 2.4GHz 4Ch with RX-482 Receiver Bought the cheapest price I found 
●When used with compatible RX-472, RX-482, Super Vortex Series, SV-Plus Series, the setting of ESC etc. by Transmitter is available through SSL functions while driving.

●Since the setting can be done without the stop of car, the detailed adjustment in accordance with Race conditions 
is available without interruption of Intervals and the change of machine conditions.

Bought a set of Hopups , discounted of course. I like discounts , we all do.  ^^

  • Yeah Racing Aluminum D4 Steering & Suspension Upgrade Kit For 3Racing Sakura D4 AWD RWD Pink #SKD4-S01PK Have been installing these whenever I got a chance , SKD4-002 Adjustable upper arm will not fit with the mono shock wing upper arm . you need a 10x15x4mm ball bearing for the SKD4-001 High Kpi Steering knuckle. The SKD4-011 Spur Gear Adaptor does not align with the Spur Gear holes and will cause your spur gear to warp and wobble and ultimately break  , so you can skip that.

  • 3Racing Sakura D4 RWD Aluminum Curve Slide Track Steering Set Black #SAK-D4827/BK This is the last thing you want to install as the curve arm rests on 4 tiny steel balls that will drop out and disappear while fiddling about with your car so save this step for the end when you've got your servo and install together. Maybe put some grease in the holes to keep them stuck in there.

  • 3Racing Sakura D4 15G Brass Weight Balancer 5 Pcs Gun Metal #SAK-D4802A

  • 3Racing Sakura D4 5G Brass Weight Balancer 5 pcs Gun Metal #SAK-D4801
After installing all the Upgrades the Original non modified Chassis weighs 639 Grams vs Fully Modified 625 Grams
Just the Chassis excluding ESC , Motor , Servo , recover , battery and weight balancers .

I dont know what I'm getting myself into.
I don't like fiddling about with 1/10 cars so the convenience the Sanwa system offers was a no brainer as you can modify the motors RPM , the gyro , the servo end points , the rate of acceleration , and god knows what through the remote.
Buying the Sanwa system will keep me up at night and I hope its worth it , but I won't know for sure until I have money to buy the Servo.

I still don't have a body but I've bought the important stuff ... discounted.  ;)
There isn't a lot of info on the Sanwas on the net so I really hope I don't live to regret my decision but I saw a good drifter on youtube (Afro's RC Club , guy from Canada) with a Sanwa esc on his D4 and his team at least own 2 D4s and that encouraged me to buy a D4 also.

Hello there.

I've always liked drifting and wanted to get into the hobby.

So I bought myself 2 Kyosho MA-020 Mini-zs , one for myself and one for my kid , and immediately started buying parts and modding them , but no matter how you mod them they don't seem to drift too well with off the shelf parts. Most Mini-z enthusiasts build their own parts , a lot of 3rd party aftermarket Mini-z awd parts are no longer available and parts have recently become scarce.

Now I'm transitioning into 1/10 scale , as I put together a super clod buster for my kid successfully , I've developed a nostalgic motivation.

I want to build a Tamiya 1/10 TT01E Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evo.II simply for the body and turn it into a drift car.

I will be needing all the help I can get as I don't have much experience.
Any advice will be much appreciated. 

Thanx for taking the time to read my post.

Hi, I'm new to the drift.
I have an offer a chassis mst fmx with gyro mst lsd2 with little use for the same price as a new chassis kit mst rmx 2.0 S. Which should I choose?
I have experience in assembling rc kits.
If I stay the fmx I should buy a short lipo battery, if I stay the rmx I should buy a cheap gyro. Thank you very much for the help. Best regards.

I have been into RC everything since 1992... boats, planes, helis, cars, trucks, drones, turbines, gassers, nitro and electric.

I am mainly into U4RC these days but just picked up a HPI Hoonicorn.

I know it isn't a serious drift platform. I have however searched for ways to make it better in both performance and scale appearance.... i.e. interior, lighting, etc.

What if anything is there to enhance the RS4 Sport3 platform other than HPI's options offerings.

Any help would be appreciated.

Here are a couple of my U4 rigs...[Image: d92f3700faf8e5d016d3b4a092fb01da.jpg][Image: b3e18eeaf86c701f829d55abe38f43ba.jpg][Image: 4a6a8ba2c1213abbb6ecbb2a63af5828.jpg][Image: a0023c2f35cde19f3e472b009b4b9e71.jpg][Image: 1a773200516f020cfc37aff739f872b6.jpg][Image: 76f6c0ada40d08840414780d2e0c0763.jpg][Image: 6f3577519aa548bfb9da7d91f08ec0b2.jpg][Image: 224b84d5cc07a8fab16ca3a19bf6eb09.jpg][Image: 5dd5d6f72f2fb48952f2985092cb80e7.jpg][Image: 097b3748ffc1b74173335a72115d6727.jpg]

Ordered an MST RMX 2.0 S, been drifting AWD sprints and RS4s for 10 ish years on and off, been seeing a lot about the RWD high CS stuff and decided to give it a shot.

All of my spare RC money has gone into crawlers and Mini Zs in the past 3-4 years, started to get a little stale so here I am.

Any pointers going from AWD to RWD?

  Hello from yet another newbie
Posted by: FriktionRC - 03-31-2018, 09:57 AM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (1)

Hi folks ,

Thought I'd follow on the heels of other new members and introduce myself. Am very new to drifting ( I know what it is but was never really into it) and also new to rc drifting although not new to RC. I'm returning to RC after +30yrs by purchasing a 2wd Traxxas Slash. To give you an idea of how long ago I've been away from the scene....my last RC was a Tyco Turbo Jet Hopper (which I recently discovered was still around had when my folks cleared out their loft!!!).

So why drift rc? Well, like the reason for buying the Slash, I wanted to get into it after seeing many many YouTube videos. I didn't go down the 'standard' route (if there is such a thing) when I picked out my initial drift car. I wanted something cheap that I could find easy to use and also modify....so, I purchased a 4wd brushed Banzai FTX S15 second hand (got it for less than half price of a new one). Came with everything and was in good nick apart - so well pleased with that.

I don't have any tracks near me so though I would like to take it round a track I want to get into the body modding side of things until I find a decent place to run it. Also I've recently gone brushless in my Slash so at some point I would like to upgrade the stuff in the FTX S15 too.

I'll populate my profile and upload some pics as and when the build gets started. In the mean time please be patient if I keep asking questions - I know nothing about all of this hahahahaha.

Cheer's all
PS, if anyone is from the UK pls say hi as it seems that the majority of folks on the forums and sites I've been on are from the other side of the pond

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where to get a full upgrade, arm and ball cap. All the aluminium upgrades i've seen still use that composite ball cap with the aluminium control arm.
