Warning New, having a couple of problems. Help a ginger out???
Posted by: MurphysGinger - 02-23-2017, 11:44 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (1)

Hello All,

So, I am new to rc drifting. I just built my YD-2 chassis, and that went smoothly. 

1. I have all electronics in the car and it runs no problem. I'm having a gyro issue, however. When the car is turned on, the wheels go from left to right very frantically. While drifting they do the same thing. I'm not sure what I've done wrong, but I know it's probably something stupid on my part. The electronics are in, but not secured down. I did secure the gyro, so it would work (or so I thought.)

It's all Yokomo. 13.5 motor, esc, and the gyro is the YG-302. At first the direction was wrong, flipped the direction in the gyro and it counters correctly, but spazzes out left and right like crazy. Even when I drive it and stop. It'll sit there and still spaz out, unless I take the front of the car off of the ground, and then set it back down.

2. The Savox servo sounds like it's making a "crackling" or an "interference" like noise. It's worse when it's first turned on, and decreases a little the
longer it's on.

3. Is more of a body assembly question that boils down to my stupidity, I'm sure, but I want to get the chassis going more than anything.

Thanks for reading, hopefully someone can be my rc drift knight in shining armor.....no homo....

  E10 Steering Issue
Posted by: GianTyphoon - 02-20-2017, 03:18 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (4)

Hello DriftMission forum members.

I have had an issue with my HPI E10 steering whereby the wheels appear to be slightly 'toed' out. This could be normal but the main problem is that the wheels turn further in one direction than the other. Now, I have played around with the steering centring controls on the transmitter to make sure the wheels are straightened. I have also replaced my steering servo to try and fix the problem, however, this has made no difference. The left wheel - which will not turn as far as the right wheel - also seems to slightly lose drive when turned at full lock left meaning the car will sometimes misbehave mid-drift. 

Of course, this problem is incredibly frustrating and has resulted in the car not being used for a while despite me having loved using it when it still functioned properly.

Any help and / or knowledge as to a solution for this problem will be much appreciated.

  Compatible separate suspension mounts for MST FXX?
Posted by: exwhyzed - 02-17-2017, 11:20 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Hi All,

In looking at the MST FXX, it has 2.5mm suspension arm pins.  I think Yokomo uses the same size pins on their chassis, and so the Yokomo separate suspension mounts would work on the MST FXX (if i create a custom chassis plate).

Can anyone suggest any other separate suspension mounts, other than the Yokomo ones, that would also be compatible with 2.5mm arm pins?  Thanks in advance!

  Sprint 2 Battery Not Working
Posted by: snakenator - 02-16-2017, 09:08 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (7)

I recently purchased a sprint 2 and it works wonderful- most of the time. I bought it with five battery packs, a 7.2v 1800 mAh, 7.2v 3300 mAh, two 8.4v 4500 mAh, and an 8.4v 5100 mAh. They all work great except the 5100 battery. When I plug in and turn on the car it begins to beep and never stops. I thought it might not be charged so I charged it up but it still doesn't seem to work... Any ideas on what might be wrong and how to fix it?

  First Drift build, Looking for some advice on chassis.
Posted by: Coloursofdan - 02-15-2017, 06:05 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (9)

Hey guys I'm looking to build my first RC drift car. Got decent knowledge of drift physics and setups but new to RC drift. Been doing heaps of research and think I've narrowed it down to a few options.
Currently I'm looking at getting a AWD CS setup (eventually 1.8 - 2.0+cs) but could go RWD if its just better. From what I've seen RWD is a lot harder to get setup and needs a fairly controlled surface. Ill be Driving on asphalt surface mostly, got a car park 1 min walk down the road and the local track is also asphalt but much smoother. There is a carpet track 1 hour away.
Chassis I'm looking at are the MST MS01D S kit or Sakura D4 Awd with upgrades.

MST MS01D S kit is $264au
Sakura D4 awd kit is $133 + upgrades = $294au

Here are the upgrades I'm looking at:
3Racing Sakura D4 AWD Aluminum Slide Steering System
3Racing Aluminum One Way Tube
3Racing Sakura D4 Belt Tensioner Bearing
3Racing Sakura D4 Belt Tensioner Post
Yeah Racing Aluminum Adjustable Front Lower Suspension Arm
Yeah Racing Aluminum Adjustable Rear Suspension Lower Arm
Yeah Racing Aluminum High KPI Adjustability Steering Suspension Knuckle (or 3Racing Aluminum Knuckle Version 2)
= $161

1: Is the MS01d S stock for that price as good as the D4 with upgrades? Seems hard to justify spending extra for the MST. 
2: Are those upgrades the main ones i'll need? 
3: Are any of them not worth getting at the start?
Or is another option worth looking at?

Thanks for your time and knowledge.

  So Uhhh... I Guess I'll Introduce Myself...
Posted by: snakenator - 02-15-2017, 01:15 AM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

What it do everybody, it's your boi Snakenator!

So a bit about me:
-Livin in the BEAUTIFUL city of Bakersfield, CA... Worst air pollution in the U.S!
-Finishing off my senior year of high school
-My sole source of income is YouTube... so yeah, no job at the moment.
My YouTube channel is http://www.youtube.com/dawsonpitcher in case anyone cared, but its mostly just vlogs and crap, so idk if that would really be how you wanted to spend your time.

I have never done RC drift before in my life. Well, that's not true. I did mess around with my uncle's for about an hour and then also had a $20 "Super Drift RC Racing Car" Oh, I occasionally drift in real life... But that is the extent until now. I plan to get into RC Drift stuff at least a little, hopefully a bunch, and that is why I joined the forum: rather than make the mistake of going in blind and then going back and realizing what I should have done, I plan on doing as much research and getting as much help from y'all prior to investing big bucks, then I won't have to make as many mistakes along the way.

That's about it... Hope you can put up with me and my newb-ness for at least a month, then I hope to have done much more research on this hobby so I think it's fair game for you to press me when I make a dumb claim or don't know anything at that point.

Info How to stop crab walking
Posted by: gbalstad - 02-14-2017, 08:11 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)


I have an RWD Sakura D4, I just ordered an aluminum steering rack from 3Racing, but in the meantime I am trying to understand and remove the "crab walk" that the car is currently exhibiting.

I understand that the crab walking is a result of bad ackerman angles.

I consulted this blog post and posed a question at the bottom:

In short what causes crab walking? Is it due to the leading wheel (say your turned right, the right wheel is leading, and the left is trailing) have a greater angle than the trailing wheel?

Thanks very much for any assistance.

  Help on Carpet for drifting and links to buy them
Posted by: Dhulsedrift99 - 02-11-2017, 03:37 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (5)

I need some help on finding carpet to use for rc drifting. I looked at carpet online, but I don't know what kind of carpet to get, and when I find carpet that looks good for drifting, I don't know if they have fireproof stuff on it, fuzzes up, or if it is good for drifting. I've seen threads with people saying that certain kinds are good for drifting, but that doesn't really help with me. I would like links to sites on the carpet that rc drifters bought and use. I don't have a lot of money to spend on the racing carpet that costs $1,000 per roll right now. Like I would like good drifting carpet for a good and reasonable price, but still do good at drifting, whether it's roll or the tile kind. I'm asking for help from fellow RC Drifters about carpet to use, and links to buy it. Hope you guys can help me and send me links to places where to find carpet for drifting.

Hey guys! New drifter here, I'm afraid I don't have the chassis YET, but I have started ordering other parts for it.

Until then, my little la trax sst with drift tires is quite fun :)

I received the rear diff locking block in the mail today, Radio tx/rx & hex screws should be showing up next week, and come next Friday I'll be ordering the actual chassis, as well as some extended body posts, magnetic stealth mouth, etc...


The Very first shiny blue part! I'm excited. 

This build may be a little slow, my budget is sort of low as it is split with my model train layout lol.
So, heres the SST:

And the very first part of my tamiya!:

  Hpi Sprint 2 Weight Distribution
Posted by: Gramps50 - 02-08-2017, 03:21 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (3)

What is the typical weight distribution is being run on the HPI Sprint 2 Flux? I bought some kitchen scales so I could put each wheel on the scale and get a weight on each conner. I was surprised when putting my chassis on the scales. I had the battery installed but no body. I got the following readings

RF 380g
LF 227g
RR 276g
LR 425g

The previous owner has moved the esc to the center of the chassis. This just doesn't look correct to me.

I got the name 2leftthumbs, because I started my hobby flying Helicopters.

So if you ever been into the real hobby grade helicopters, then you know

a person first hobby with absolutely no ideas of flight went through......

After going through 2 blade 450, and 1 align trex 450 the name was formed.

Afterwards a few months later down the line I discovered Flight simulator

2weeks later in air flight possible, 1 later full flight, 4 months Later

tearing them up again. 1 year later full out 3D. Not he best, but better then most.

Then I got into fixed wings, after wards RC scale Crawling. I Love it. I like the

concept of upgrades, and scale accessories. That's why I got into RC drifting. The

accessories is never ending. I Love RC Scale Trophies. ;)

Gear Hello from Atlanta! New 1/24 scale drifter
Posted by: BoilingOil - 02-07-2017, 11:28 AM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

Brand new to RC, and then I found out these little things are heavily modable. Then I saw that they can drift. Take my money.

I got two of the 1/24 scale MicroX Racing cars [1x Rally from nitrorcx.com, 1x SCT from amazon] and started taking it apart after the first battery ran out.

What I've done so far:
- Lowered
- Upgraded to 7.4v 500mAh Lipo (Frankensteined from a drone, relocated to front above servo, lots of wasted space on the chassis due to lonely battery box.)
- Upgraded to oil filled shocks *
- Upgraded to Metal diff cups *

I'd love to transform this into a RWD drift car.
Next steps:
- C-Pillar deletion mod ** (frankenstein/cut up some custom pieces so I'll photo document my success/failure)
- Adjustable front upper mod **
- RWD Conversion ** (shorten the driveshaft, or run motor direct drive if possible)
- Crazy steering angle mod (picked up a 180deg servo, want to learn about them more, I want light enough/torquey enough/zippy enough)
- New Tx/Rx for brushless ESC/Motor.
- Custom chassis with more space and upgrade to 1/10 scale ESC/motor. 
- Heavy Duty all metal rear diff to get away with that.
- Custom parts redone in CF/Aluminum.

I plan on investing in a 3d printer very soon and making my parts available to swap between all three same chassis, maybe some interchangeability between the Losi and the WL-Toys 1/24 cars (adapters n whatnot).

I have photos of my car, I'll make a build thread if anybody is interested in following my work.

* What I've Noticed: 
Surprisingly, the one I ordered off amazon had upgraded metal diffs and oil filled shocks vs the one I ordered straight from nitrocrx.com being hella vanilla.

** Only If I Need To:
If somebody else has done it and has rolled a good mod/technique/partlist/cad/schematics for printing/modding, I'd like to adopt/adapt. If not this will be fun to me.

  Spring selection Sprint 2
Posted by: Gramps50 - 02-04-2017, 09:24 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (5)

I'm a little confused, I'm reading conflicting information as to how to select the proper spring selection. I have a Hpi Sprint 2, all agree that the stock springs are way to stiff for drifting. Some sources say that the front should be soft and others say the back should be soft. One of the sources said both depending on which youtube video you watched.

My Sprint 2 is 50/50 with the rear diff locked, front diff open but has Lucas Red & Tacky grease in it. Stock shocks no idea as to oil weight ( was bought used). Currently running T-Drifts #4406 tires.

  Sprint 2 update build
Posted by: gcarrell2 - 02-02-2017, 12:00 PM - Forum: Hot Bodies and HPI - Replies (2)

So update to the build. I scrapped the 2wd at this time. I will be attempting a 2wd with the current 4wd chassis in the future. But update on my 4wd progress. I decided i wanted to monoshock the front suspension and camber link the rear. I purchased both products from 3racing and were designed to fit the Sakura D4. With the front shock, I added a shaft from a 1/10 buggy to reach the monoshock towers. I could have added a long rod end, but I didn't have one at my disposal and was too lazy at the time to head to the hobby shop. In the future I will be replacing the shock with a 1/10 buggy/truck shock and spring for more adjustment options. For the rear camber link mixing kit, I replaced the turnbuckle that was supplied with the kit with a turnbuckle I had laying around from a 1/10 buggy. I feel the car is more stable in the corners and is easier to drift and change directions. So far I am happy with the outcome. I am thinking about ordering the exotek chassis and doing a c-hub modification and possible 2wd without getting the Yeah Racing conversion. Pictures to follow.
*I have to note that the 2wd I was setting up was not my kit, but a kit a friend let me borrow. I might give the Yeah Racing kit another shot on my ride.

Posted by: aackjw - 01-31-2017, 04:14 PM - Forum: Work-in-Progress - No Replies

I'd like to share my recent project. It's been pretty slow on the progress due to the lack of time & delivery delay on parts.
Also This is not exactly 'the progress'. It's rather 'where it is'. I'm open to any suggestion or advice. Also I'm willing to answer any question about what I'm doing or will be doing for anybody who is in the same route.
The chassis is Sakura D4 RWD. Everything at the moment is stock except Usukani KPI knuckle.
The build has been pretty straight forward. As a lot of post mentioned, there is huge slop on steering. So I ordered 3racing slide steering option kit. I will post the chassis later.

Also when I check the fitment on the body, the stock wheelbase setting seems longer with fender from the wide kit of the body.
I cut off the inside of the fenders that I red-circled in the picture & moved the spacers to the center F&R so I can make the wheelbase shorter.
Even after that, it seems still roughly 5mm longer than the body.
I ordered Usukani upper arm/lower arm V2(i got this instead of V1 since V2 is smaller so it might have more space to play)/bulkhead to see if I can adjusted accordingly. I'm kind of running out of option because I found this issue after I made a hole on the parts & the body for bolts already.
Anyway, my next move will be.....
1. install Usukani parts & see if I can make it fit without modifying the body parts already painted.
2. If that doesn't work, I'll try to move rear fender toward rear & cover the bolts hole as much as I can.

I will update the post with the postmortem once I'm done.
Thank you for watching.
