323it i tried drifting a skyline with the stock medium tires on all corners, wit a 3.8 motor... Guess what happened... U cant drift lol. Itz really hard the best i can do is whip the car around. Ive got it to skid a turn but then it spun out when it came outta the turn so that sucked.

Our whole downstairs is hardwood! All I have do do is use some cleaner and clean a bit of it and I can drift all day. I have a track set up down there. It's great!

I need to get it on tape because it looks awsome!

2.2 motor
stock stabilizer
orange gears
medium tires on both front and rear
dual batt mod

its a good drifter, u cant do it at top speed or the thing flips over so i just accel let go tap opposite direction and then to the direction of the turn while tapping the accel

IT EVEN DRIFTS ON CARPET!!!!!

heya guys i think i figured something out, but not that important...

since ive been using full size ZZ rims on my bit, ive always used full size tires...and i noticed that i had some soft front tires left over, so whati thought to make lowprofile tires, is to put the small front tires on my car..and for some strange reason, it makes me drift better....but it maybe just me...

my current setup was:
no stabalizer
hard ribbed rear tires, or medium tires on the rear
soft small front tires on full size rims on the front
red ZZ gears
2.6-3.8 motor
and using my lowered/lighter skyline body

i was actually amazed that my skyline went straight...because normally it would venture off to the side when i put it in the new front slot to lower it...i think the overstretched tires helped out alot..

hey yo... driftin is something i would love to do in real life, but me and my friends settle for just driftin with our bits. i use a really simple set up.

R32 Skyline from the History of GTR set
BitRacer 3.0 motor
BitRacer Soft front tires
BitRacer Hard rear tires

and thats about it...
my friend uses a the same except for the body... its a lancer. try these setups out and get back to me with ur results...

oh yea try to drive it on tiles that arent too dusty cuz its just a really big hastle to clean your chassis and tires. a little bit of dust helps, but too much just makes you spin out a lot easier.

Ok i need to know what i need to be able to drift. I bought the tune up set from here and it says it comes with a drift axel, so what do i need to do with it just put it on the car and, well, i read that you use the suspension arm with 2 holes. Then what? Hope you guys could help, thanks. I also would like to know, what you have to press, as in on the controller, to be able to drift, thanks.

**EDIT**

Oh yea, and when i look at the regular rear axel, on the rims it has 1 line in the middle, and when i look at the Tune-up set back axel rims it looks all rigid and everything, whats the difference? Thanks.
