I just noticed that you can drift if your on a hard surface by just running on the rims. It spins like hell though. Still fun.

well here's what i did.....

first i had stock tires back and soft bit racer front w/ 3.0 motor and blue gears


first drive ur car over a small amount of baby powder...or drive or a dusty floor.. (not too dusty or u'll have no more grip on the back tires and spin out)

now right before you approach a turn ..tap the opposite direction of that turn and quickly hold down the direction of ur turn..by now ur car should be drifting...u have to have a good feel for ur car..when u see it drifting too hard...u have to tap the opposite direction (to create this understeering) so that ur car doesn't spin out...

happy drifting!

i'd love to see that video of that drift...can you post a link to it?
sorry. i have no idea where it is. i think it was a japanese commercial for bit char-g. it showed 2 cars running around the table top. and this one shot showed a slow motion of one of the bit go around (i think it was)a pencil holder, and it drifted around it

nothing=no tire at all, you ride the rims? i like that scotch tape idea, since i ordered a 3.0 motor and the gears shelling out for the tires too is something i shoulda done in hindsight...

yeah i do the no tires in the back thing 2 with my 1.0. i am a newb but my car does actual peel outs with no tires(dont no if u care but i think its fun). um this whole tiny rc thing hasnt hit my area really big yet so bear with me until i get some real knowlege of this stuff. just wondering wouldnt the rare earth magnets help with drifting since they are a lot more powerful(not with a superfast motor cause then the car would flip). got some upgrades on the way(for draging mostly 3.8 with rare earth magnets probly wont be good for tracks). um i plan on getting a 2.2 or 2.6 motor when i order some new tires and gears. i love how cheap all this is i can wait to find some people who just got thier cars and try to race them for pink slips(uh u guys really do that right). also is the drift kit worth getting if i get a tire kit and an axel kit then the only thing i wont have is the steering suspension bar thingys. ok well thats all this newbs got right now lata.
