CHAOS in the RC WORLD ! - madeinjapandad - 09-23-2017

If anyone has noticed , i often get lost when researching things in the RC drifting world , here is a perfect example of why NOOBS like myself get lost when it comes to comprehending things from online sources :

https://www.reddit.com/r/rcdrift/comments/32385o/rwd_or_awd/

NOTICE : THE FIRST GUY SAYS "YOU CAN RUN RWD WITH CS , YOU JUST NEED TO PICK UP THE RIGHT TIRES"

NOTICE : THE SECOND GUY POSTS " CS (4WD) GENERALLY DO NOT MESH WELL IN.."

The first guy implies RWD cars can be run wth CS , The second guy says CS is ONLY for 4WD...

SO WHICH 1 IS IT ? 

All i wanted to know is if RWD cars like the YOKOMO YD-2 or the MST S 2.0 have the capability for C.S ( 1.3 - 2.0 ) , OR am i mistaken and RWD cars/kits do NOT come with C.S capability. 

Forgive my ignorance , hope someone leads me in the correct direction on the issue of RWD and C.S ability.

Some rwd cars can become cs. For example the d4 you can buy the cs kit or rwd kit. I have the rwd but to become cs i just need a few more parts the kit didnt come with. If you look at a rwd d4 you can see that the front diff case is still there but its empty. So its still capable of becoming cs if you want.

If your talking about drifting a rwd against a cs, its possible but the rwd will need more grip as awd cars are faster.

Those are my 2 understandings from this post. Hope i answered it right.

Hello!
This is my first time here and i just want to say that I’m very happy to be here and to share my opinion.
Thanks!

I have My Yokomo DIB converted to RWD (and also the chassis is reversed) it was a CS for the first months until I decided I needed to have more angle at front and have the motor at rear. now my DIB is doing 97% angle with dual servo for each side.

Generally RWD cars tend to run a bit slower than CS. That's why some people say they don't tandem together very well.
But I find my Sakura D3 (standard 2.1 CS) drifts pretty slowly too so there's that.

Now for the answer to your RWD/CS question:
CS in RC drift means "countersteer". It's the tuning that makes the rear wheels spin faster than front wheels to create rotational difference. In short, it makes the back stepping out so you can hold opposite lock or counter-steer while drifting.

Counter-steer in general term means steering the opposite way to maintain control and slide.

RWD is not CS (contersteer) because the front never receive any power in the first place so you don't need to create rotational difference between front and rear wheels. 

Some chassis can do both things depends on the parts installed. For example Sakura D4 which comes in both CS kit and RWD kit.
Other cars can do from 50:50, CS and RWD depend on what upgrade you install on the car, for example Yokomo drift package (shaft drive chassis). It comes as 50:50 which means front spins the same rate as rear. There're upgrade kit to make rear wheels spin faster, so this is CS configuration. And there's a kit to make the car rear wheel drive too.

From your example, Yokomo YD2 is RWD only and doesn't have kit to convert it to AWD.
