  General Question - Rear Lock Diff
Posted by: madeinjapandad - 09-21-2017, 08:43 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)


Do ALL RC Drift cars need to Lock The Rear Differential ?

I understand that it makes the car drift smoother , correct me if I'm wrong , please ; and if that is the case then why don't the manufacturers simply sell for example RTRs with pre Locked Diff ?

Am i missing something ?

Thank You .

Could anyone kindly inform me if there is a difference between the HPI RS4 Sport 3 Drift Subaru BRZ RTR and the HPI RS4 SPORT 3 Vaughn Gittin JR RTR ?

What are the differences and which one is better ?

Thanks to all you HPI experts out there...

Additionally , does anyone know how any of these HPI drift models ( being the best HPI has to offer ) would compare to the newest variant of the MST MS-01D ( http://www.rc-mst.com/product_car_info.p...31&sn=1687 ) or the MST FXX-D , or the MST XXX-D ?

Do the HPI cars have anything on the MST models ?

Based on my research the HPI stock can't mess with ANY of the MST models , am i correct ?

Looking for some pro answers , thanks in advanced to anyone who can help out , surely someone out there knows a thing or two about the mentioned rides !

  Hilux body on a tc4
Posted by: c0bra - 09-20-2017, 10:20 AM - Forum: Other Manufacturers - No Replies

Like the title says I'm looking to start a drift build based on a team associated tc4 chassis (already have it) and will be running a hilux/Mojave body.

I haven't decided if I want to go with shortening the wheelbase, or perhaps using a Mojave 4 door bed, which would be the easier route. Or just saying f*** it and going to a custom approx 1" stretched chassis with Sakura d4 front end and tc4 rear to keep everything low with a Mojave 2 4 door body.

Any thoughts/suggestions? Or any build threads that have pics from a similar build?

  TA04 CS options?
Posted by: JCraven94 - 09-19-2017, 03:01 PM - Forum: Countersteer - No Replies

Hey all, pretty new to rc drift here, but learning fast. I currently have a Tamiya TA04-S running a GoolRC brushless setup on 2s. Installed a one-way front diff and made some ABS tires, also has an "lsd" (I used plumbers putty but it isn't fully locked haha). It handles really well and I'm getting the hang of it pretty fast. I'd like to look into CS drifting but was wondering if this chassis really has any options as far as pulleys go. I know it's an older chassis, and it doesn't look like they were too popular with drifting, so I'm having trouble. Was wondering if there's any compatible parts from other chassis that would work?

Thanks, Joe

  Sprint 2 Front Motor CS
Posted by: dewkiie - 09-18-2017, 12:54 PM - Forum: Countersteer - No Replies

So ive been trying to figure out a couple pulley/belt combos for a front motor set up. Ive even asked my local hobby shop, but they can only help me with product numbers and actual names.

Im currently on a locked stock rear and an open stock front. Havent pulled the trigger on a one way front just yet, but plan to do so soon. Most likely keeping it 32T. So my question for you guys is what pulley/belt combos have you ran? Just naming the teeth count doesnt help much, unless i can look it up in the belt guide. Very new to this whole hobby as a whole, help please? :)

  Hacktronic Drift ESC - slow reverse speed??
Posted by: brendo - 09-11-2017, 10:08 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (1)

Hi All,

I got a new Yeah Racing Hacktronic Drift ESC today along with a Hobbywing QUICRUN 3650SD 8.5T motor.

Everything works fine, except reverse.

If anyone else has this ESC in drift mode I'd like to know how fast your car goes in reverse? Mine goes very slow in reverse. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be that slow in reverse or not? With other ESC's reverse has gone a similar speed to forward. Forward is fine on my car.

I assumed that throttle calibration might be the problem, but I cannot seem to get it to calibrate. I turn the transmitter on, hold full reverse, turn on the car/ESC and it is supposed to beep twice, but it does not beep. It's just on like it's not being calibrated. I tried trimming the throttle on the transmitter, but nothing I do seems to make any difference nor allow me to calibrate the throttle with the ESC.

Any ideas?

Hello everyone I just recently purchased a omg Lp-bf07S servo and I'm having trouble with it.

got most of my rmx 2.0 s built up, it all was going perfect until the part where i had to build the diff. I can manage building up one half, but the second hand where i have to stick the tiny tiny bearings between two washers i just found it impossible, ended up just putting the diff together without the two small washers and small bearings. the bigger balls went into the gear no problem

anyone had trouble with this??

  My D4 CS Build
Posted by: FR_Slow - 08-29-2017, 10:12 AM - Forum: 3 Racing - Replies (7)

Starting this thread to chronicle the progress of my Sakura D4 CS. This is my first drift car, and first time building an RC kit (owned RTRs in the past).

For electronics I went with:
-Yeah Racing Hackmoto V2 13T
-Yeah Racing Hackgear Servo
-Yeah Racing Tritronic

If, more likely when, I convert the car to RWD I will likely switch to a 10.5T brushless setup and add a gyro.

First planned upgrade for now is going to be period correct wheels to match the ABC Hobbies R30 body that will be going on it.

Here's the progress I've managed to make so far.

I'll post an update once the chassis is complete.

Posted by: FR_Slow - 08-21-2017, 12:52 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (4)

Hey everyone, I'm Chris from the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I played around with RC cars a little in high school and college, mainly just bashing around the desert (originally from AZ) with a cheap Traxxas Rustler. I've been wanting to get into RC drifting for awhile now, but have always decided to spend the money on 1:1 scale car hobbies instead (autox, hpde, and rallyx in the winter).

After a bit of research, probably less than I should have done haha, I order the following yesterday:

-Sakura D4 AWD
-Yeah Racing Hackmoto V2 13T
-Yeah Racing Hackgear Servo
-Yeah Racing Tritronic
-ABC Hobby R30 Skyline body
-FlySky TX FS-GT3B
-Charger and a Gens ace 5000mAh 50c 2S LiPo

I went with the CS D4 simply because of reading and watching a good number of reviews that said it'd be easier to learn and less likely to get discouraged, although I read plenty of opinions that also said to just jump into RWD. My main goal, for the time being, is simply to have some fun with a moderately expensive toy. I figured the D4 would be a good choice since it was in my price range and can be converted to RWD fairly easily.

This is gonna be my first time actually building a kit, my old Rustler was bought as an RTR, and I'm pretty excited for that. Looking forward to joining the community, and learning/sharing a lot more on here.

Here's the progress on the car so far.

[Image: rztm6p8wdlrgijaoy6qn.jpg]

Ran into a bit of a snag last night with the upper deck and front shock mount coming into contact with each other, so I'm picking up some sand paper today to take a bit off the front of the upper deck. Hoping I can finish up the build tonight.

  Budget drift car
Posted by: dadwithrc - 08-20-2017, 08:17 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (5)

Whats up guys? 
Let me start off by saying who I am. I just got into the RC hobby less than a year ago. I have a brushless monster truck right now. Thats it. I have been going to the local track and watching all the racing on and off road. I have never raced myself. I have been looking at getting a new on road car, drift type of course. I have been to Japan 4 times and I have fallen in love with the JDM style cars. But being so new to RC I have lots of questions. 
Question 1: I have been looking into a few drift cars and I want your help picking one. I have been looking at the 4WD Exceed MaxSpeed GTR. Brushless and ready to run. It is shaft driven and under $200, not bad. The other is HobbyKing 4WD Mission D. This one is belt driven and I feel would be better as a drifter. The Mission D is not brushless or ready to run. But for less than $100 for an ARR is a steel. I priced it all out and I can get the Mission D for around $175 and thats with a nice radio that I can program 10 cars to. If I like drifting then HobbyKing sells the brushless kit for $65. The Mission D is a clone of the yokomo drb so I can get pretty good parts that way.
 If I have it right brushed might be better to start off with only because its slower and I can control it better. 
I know that neither one is not the best RC out there but I'm on a tight budget. I have six kids and trying to give them everything doesn't leave me with much to spend on a RC. I looked for a used one but I can not find one anywhere. I am leaning towards the HobbyKing only because I can get more for my dollar. For a basher I think it would do. I just want to know what you guys think of the cars and make sure I am making the right purchase. I have tons of questions but I think that I will start with this one first. As the thread goes on I am sure I will ask more.
Thanks guys and I hope to be posting more.

  What drift chassis is also good for all use?
Posted by: Defiance - 08-18-2017, 07:47 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (5)

I have been trying to find the right chassis for a few years now but I just don't know. There isn't much only for really anything rc related and what there is really isn't to helpful. I mean some of the websites have an add to cart option but it's just a picture and you can't click on it and one website had just products but you have to be a dealer to order. I have found the Yokomo YD-2 EX and the MST FXX-D vip to be vary appreciated in the drift community but the are now comparisons with any chassis and the YouTubers tell you buy them but I can't buy both. Also everything I find is with drifting only and I also want to do normal track races and I bring my cars to the car show I have (with real cars) and I race against my friend (in a straight line like a drag race). I would like it if anyone could give me any help/feedback/suggestions. Thanks

  Sakura d4 rwd rear belt too tight
Posted by: Retrom - 08-12-2017, 03:48 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (3)

I'm not really sure what to do, my newly build d4 has an extremely tight belt no matter what I do, I completely rebuilt the belt system and it's stI'll the same. So tight the wheels won't roll unless you turn them manually. Do they just need to be broken in, because I spent a solid 30 minutes just trying to get them on. They're on the lowest belt tension setting, (I think). Any help is appreciated.

Info New in Minnesota
Posted by: bry73 - 08-11-2017, 09:12 PM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

Hey All,

New to this R/C Drifting scene, and I jumped in feet first with a 3Racing D4 RWD kit using a Kenitics 4000KV Brushless Motor/ Esc Combo from Horizon with a Onisiki Gyro. 
Also purchased a 3Racing D3 AWD Roller and using a Orion dDrive Brushless motor to assist in my learning curve of Drift and what each style of car is capable of doing.

A little about myself, Growing up my parents never allowed me to have a decent R/C, Then after getting married and enlisting in the NAVYin 1988, I was finally able to afford to get
my first R/C, A Tamiya Grasshopper, which was veryquickly followed by a Tamiya Blackfoot.  I then got stationed in San Diego the fall off 88 where I soon discoved R/C racing. My next purchase 
was a BoLink Eliminator Pan Car Chassis and racing on a outdoor paved R/C Road Track. I started at the end of the decline in Pan Car Racing at that point in time. To then discover the dirt off road
racing. The RC10 buggy didn't do much for me, but the RC10T had me hooked, so after a year of not racing do to being out to sea and becoming a new father I was able to finally get that new 10T.
First year was stock and not competitive, 2nd year was better results better parts, 3rd year I was all in with a carbon fiber chassis and all of the expensive titanium parts and matched cell battery packs,
com lathe and brush cutter. Was having a ball of a time spending money like it was going out of style, New tires every race day, New motor every other week stacks of brushes and batteries, and 2 packs of cigs every race day, Man was it fun (NOT) Rage sold eveything one weekend for 200.00 in 1994/5. Took a very long break till around 2007 when I got back into R/C with a Helicopter since that wouldn't
lead to competition. Nope it sure didn't, but as Heli's got bigger so did the repair bill up till I had a misfortune with one and I had a very close call with a carbon fiber blade, and one of our pets didn't fair well at all.
I know this is getting long, but almost to Me and Drifting. I then managed to find myself now employed as a R/C Specialist at my LHS and managed to hit my head on some rocks and get deeply involved in Rock Crawling and back into Competition. But due to that I was able to grew my LHS Crawling section of RC vastly and able to now make store purchasing decisions. Several of my crawling buddies are also into Drifting, and my LHS didn't have anything other than the HPI sprints and the Vaterra Touring cars. So I have taken on the task of trying to expand my understanding of r/c drift and also to increase the stores selection of vehicles. So I was able to bring in a 3Racing account and also Yeah Racing into my  LHS.

Hi all!  ^^
I am new to RC drift and RC in general and I've ordered Sakura D4 RWD as my first chassis.
Now I need electronics.. Somewhere in ~100-130€. The point is to keep it as cheap as possible, but not totally crappy. Bang for the buck, to be short...

That's how I see it:

  • Motor ~ 30€
Turnigy TrackStar 10.5T Sensored Brushless Motor 3730KV
  • ESC ~25€
TrackStar Sportsman 60A
  • Servo ~5€ lol or ~13€
Dirt cheap servo... It just should work?..
Turnigy™ DRFT-303 1/10th D-Spec Steering Servo 4.5kg / 0.10sec / 39g
TrackStar TS-411MG Digital 1/10 Scale Short Course Steering Servo 25T 11.1kg / 0.09sec / 57g
  • Transmitter+Receiver ~20€
I guess it'll do the job
HobbyKing® ™HK-GT2B 3CH 2.4GHz Transmitter and Receiver
  • Battery ~15€
ZIPPY 4000mAh 2S1P 25C Lipo 
  • Charger ~15€
IMAX B6 DC Charger 5A 50W (Copy Lol )

TOTAL: 110/125€

How is it? Maybe sth can be even more cheaper and still +/- good? Or should I replace sth with better equivalent? =S
