  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.

  Replicating my S13

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.

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

  Wekfest Houston 2017 Layout
Posted by: austinonevia - 12-06-2017, 12:04 PM - Forum: Drift Track Layouts - No Replies

Last weekend I went and helped set up the R/C drift track by RC Garage at Wekfest Houston, here are a few pictures of the event. RC Garage TX is a really cool local shop and track here in Houston. We tried to make a replica of Ebisu Minami. It wasn't perfect, we could have used more space for the tighter corners, but overall it was very fun. The jump actually worked like it does on the real course too.

Hey everyone, I've been browsing this site for a long time and finally made a profile, even though it seems like this forum is dying. :(
I drift at a local track here in Houston called RC Garage quite often. I got a Sprint 2 as my first drift oriented chassis a few years ago, and a year and a half ago finally got into RWD. Up until two weeks ago, I was using a MST FXX-D. I bought a Yokomo YD2S Plus to replace it and I love it.

I've found lots of help on various threads on this forum, and I hope it becomes more active again.

Video Off Road Racer Becomes Part Time Drifter
Posted by: Vital-Blurs - 12-05-2017, 02:23 AM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

Hi everyone.

I'm still fairly new to the RC drifting scene, but I've been racing 1/10th scale electric off road for the last 4 years or so, at Adelaide Radio Controlled Raceway (ARCR) in South Australia. Having an outdoor clay track to race on every fortnight is pretty sweet, yet it takes a huge amount of work to maintain and the weather can bring the season to a complete halt occasionaly. Sometimes months between race meetings!  I needed something indoors  =S

Thankfully, I could see that RWD was now the way and decided on an MST FXX-D in RTR form with the Tamiya BRZ body to get me started quickly. I just finished off the body wth some decals, LED's, pipes and magnetic mounts.

[Image: GXaBMF0h.jpg]

[Image: vdAUwNzh.jpg]

I found the car extremely easy to drive straight away with the gyro set at the default 100%, although a little twitchy. With half a dozen packs of practice and the gyro turned back to about 50% it's an absolute breeze to drive. It's such a relaxing way to enjoy RC and a nice change of pace from racing  =) 

What good is a drift car without somewhere to drive it properly though?....thankfully the Warehouse Sliders are based only 5 minutes down the road from me and on the opposite weekend to my off road commitments. Lucky me!

I've also been producing race videos for ARCR for some time and of course, my YouTube channel is now quickly filling up with drifting vids, too.  Here's one from the last session just a couple of days ago. 


*Until I figure out how this forum likes its YT links inserted. Every forum seems to be different. Any tips?

  Yeah Racing YD-2 Upgrade Kit Review by Oversliders
Posted by: Tiger.T - 11-21-2017, 07:38 AM - Forum: News and Announcements - No Replies

Once again Yeah Racing is killing it with an entire set of Hop-ups for the YD-2.
And as usual, I had to restart from scratch by putting my chassis back to stock to really appreciate the upgrades. Let's take a look at all the goodness.
Carbon Lower and Upper Decks:
[Image: DSC_0171-1024x681.jpg]
Well, almost stock since I kept my weight shift kit :P
I really like the look of the carbon plate in their conversion, but the most amazing thing about this kit is the price! $50 for the lower deck, and $15 for the upper! That's a $65 carbon conversion set! WTF. The fit is on point and the cut is actually quite good. Obviously you won't get some super smooth edges like a high end deck, but you're not getting some cheap knock off quality either. It's just right and will do the job fine.
[Image: DSC_0170-1024x681.jpg]
Now let's look at the alloy!
The kit brings you the following: a motor mount, front shock tower, front lower arms, front upper arms, rear shock tower, rear lower arms, adjustable length CVDs, a new steering bridge, and cool looking bumper plate. And once again, the price is ridiculous! this entire pack is under $120 and provides you all the adjustability needed and some! The whole thing include clear instructions for installation and adjustability.
[Image: DSC_0273-1024x681.jpg]
Motor Mount:
[Image: collage1-1024x522.jpg]
The motor mount allows you to setup your motor in 3 positions: stock - high upfront - high back.
Since I'm using my weight shift kit I opted for the high back position and it worked wonders. I really fell in love with this piece because of it's super sharp design and graphics. It felt very reminiscing of a Gundam look.
Lower Control Arms:
[Image: collage3-1024x625.jpg]
The lower control arms are also pretty impressive. The construction is super lean and almost too thin at first sight, but after assembling them and giving them a few tugs, I realized they were actually quite strong and will do just fine on the track. Now with that said, I would be careful if you go to tracks with sharp wall ends where wheels could get caught. At high speed, I'm sure these puppies won't like a hard impact.
[Image: collage5-1024x614.jpg]
They have adjustable track with a single screw which make for quick adjustments and offer a lot of mounting positions for your shocks. One feature I liked a lot was that the droop screw hole has an O-ring in it which prevents your setting from changing due to shock or vibration. That's a neat feature I had not seen used on these grub screws before, but make a lot of sense.
[Image: DSC_0274-1024x681.jpg]
Shock Towers & Front Upper Arms:
[Image: collage7-1024x502.jpg]
The front tower is a big improvement over the stock plastic one. You basically get about 4 times more mounting position for your shocks. The fit is also perfect and lines up with rear bridge perfectly. I would not have expected less from Yeah Racing. As for the upper arms, they are quite standard for today's trends. A lean and clean piece of aluminum with a tightening screw for the turbuckle. You re-use your factory hardware and done.
[Image: collage4-1024x522.jpg]
The rear tower had me scratching my head for a second when I first looked at it through the bag. I thought something was missing until I opened it and realized the turnbuckle mount was under the tower! What a slick trick it is. This is a great way to shave some weight and still keep the adjustability needed to perform. I most likely will have to mess around with the proper spacers combination to get the right roll.
[Image: collagebad-1024x307.jpg]
One thing I thought was weird was the clearance for the damper mounting screw. For some reason, when using the inner most position, I did not remember having binding issues with my spur on the stock towers. I have not had a chance to verify why I was getting this difference but it can be easily fixed by spacing the shock tower back a few millimeters to slide a nylon lock nut in there. (sorry for the dark pic)
The Steering Bridge:
[Image: collage6-1024x307.jpg]
the steering bridge replacement is pretty sweet. It seems to be really close to the Carb-D system, but the bridge positions sits a lot further within the bulkhead than the last one. This should result is wider range of motion and a slightly increased angle ability. If bought by itself, this part is $17 only which is a must have on this car. Buying this by itself would already be a great hop-up for your car.
[Image: collage2-1024x614.jpg]
I paired this cool steering bridge with the even cooler Power HD Storm 7 brushless servo, and Yeah Racing servo mount. The black on black look is just so satisfying.
Adjustable CVDs:
[Image: collage9-1024x225.jpg]
Just like the big names out there, these adjustable CVDs are a must have to pair with the adjustable arms. The construction is solid and they come with a double set screw engagement so they shouldn't come lose anytime soon. Everything was a direct fit in the orginal rear uprights and no shimming was required.
Powerplant upgrades:
These upgrades were not YD-2 specific but I felt like they were worth showcasing.
Since I'm building this chassis for my significant other, I ended up using some Sanwa electronic instead of Acuvance. But the Sanwa cooling is just meh... so once again Yeah Racing came to the rescue!
[Image: DSC_0262-1024x681.jpg]
I ended up using the 25mm to 30mm fan adapter, the gnarly aluminum tornado fan, and fan shroud. This came out super clean and almost look like a factory setup. These fans can be hardwired to the ESC + & - battery connection to run at their full potential. If used plugged in your receiver, they will most likely get 6V like most system, but there can actually run on a fully charged lipo at 8.4V! The one thing to be careful when doing that is to not leave your battery plugged otherwise you can discharge a lipo below its safe voltage. On the other hand, I think it's great to do it that way because it's a good reminder to unplug your lipo once you're done with your run. We all heard freak stories of car bursting into flames for no reasons whatsoever.
Overall impression:
After all these upgrades you'll be about $180 deep with alloy and carbon parts, but considering you can get yourself a YD-2 for about $170, then get decked out for such a low cost, it's a very attractive setup. The YD-2 Plus retails around $350 and doesn't even bring this level of adjustability so it clearly is a no brainer. As for the quality of the kit, everything met or exceeded my expectations. It's clever, it looks sharp, and it's affordable.
And every upgrade has it's own set of instructions as well so it's very easy to install.
Extra bits:
I also added some WUN VX knuckles to replace the factory ones and the whole result came out really good. Low bump steer and plenty of turning angle.
[Image: collage8-1024x522.jpg]
The final result is a great chassis for about $350 (Yeah Racing products only), which will provide a considerable amount of adaptability and fun for any experience level. I also believe this chassis can easily dominate competitions if tuned right.
[Image: DSC_0266-1024x681.jpg]
I did forget to showcase the bumper plate, but you can catch it on the Oversliders Instagram and as you'll see it is just like the rest of the kit, super clean and sharp.
Overall this kit gets an A in my book and is totally worth every penny.
All these cool parts can be purchased through RCMart or your local Yeah Racing distributor.
