Doh i forgot, if you do have the rear red gear that came with the awd kit, don't try glueing it. I had a hard time with mine and it never worked out. Someone needs to machine a fully aluminum drive train for these things!

Well you can order another diff at atomicmods if you screw it up. But take the stock diff apart. You will see a big blue gear and 3 little blue gears. Take the 3 blue gears out and the spacer that holds them in. Then you will see another big blue gear. Glue both big gears to the case of the diff. make sure your driveshafts fit in before it dries. After its done drying put the gear back together and put your car together again. You will have all power going to the rear wheels and you can drift with ease, but its easier to strip the glue out than you think. So be careful with the throttle and only drift on low grip surfaces like on linoleum (sp?) and stuff. If I take off at half throttle on carpet and hit full when it picks up, I can do nice fishtails and can actually get the car going sideways on carpet.

Uhh, yeah, braking is involved in a couple drift techniques, but just enough to lose traction, and that isn't the ONLY way to drift...

another technique involves weight transfer of the car using the brakes. when you step on the brakes, weight is transfered to the front of the car which reduces rear traction.

if you get the awd upgrade it gives you an extra diff, but i'm not sure if it's different than the stock one or not. if it isn't you could lock your stock one and keep the two awd ones unlocked just in case you wanted to swap back to an open diff setup.

has anyone tried putting a small amount of silly putty on the diff gears? that could be one way to lock them up temporarily and still be capable of going back to stock if you decide you didn't like it.

BTW- drifting relative to racing is not intended for speed on a track, it's just a way to keep the rpm's up on an engine through a turn which is helpful in rally racing. not on most paved surfaces where maintaining traction would be faster. on a paved track grip is faster than drift.

In general, the fastest line through a corner is the one that allows the greatest radius or the straightest path....believe me...i have plenty of experience in this.


Heres a nice link to some cornering info.... ...and here

anytime you wanna put this theory to the test...come see me @ Moroso motorsports park here in florida and I'll put laps on you while you drift your way to the truth....

+1, that's why drift competitions are not all about speed and why you don't see nascar, formula 1, cart, indy, etc. cars drifting.

why would someone come to this thread only to knock drifting? if you don't like it obviously don't reply. like nascar, it's not for everyone. but don't say it's not racing just because you don't think so. japan started the drift craze and use it while racing in events, wrc drift thru turns, it's being done....

someone would be offended if i go to nascar car threads and mock the left hand turns for example so don't come here knocking this subject please.

personally, i love drifting, but the reason for the controversy is misinterpretation. 2fast4u said something that sounded like the fastest way around a turn is to drift, which upset some of the community here because that's not true. now i realize that he meant that when your drifting, your going to want to go as fast as possible while maintaining the drift, and not that the fastest way to go through a turn is to drift.

there's one excuse to drift... on low-traction surfaces when you need more steering, or you need to get the car through a tight spot quickly. rally racing would be the only place you find these conditions.

the other, theoretical condition is that drifting allows the CG of your car to take a wider radius than if you were to enter the corner using grip (because the rear will often follow a tighter line, thus the CG has to turn tighter). so surprisingly enough you can really cut into a corner with a drift. but (assuming a RWD car) to accelerate efficiently out of the corner, you have to regain traction before you reach the apex of the turn. and since the drift already set up your angle of corner exit, you need very little front grip when exiting the drift.

when you apply this, you can do as follows: set the car up for a touch of off-power oversteer, and as much on-power rear traction as you can get. entering the corner you can coast in and turn, or brake and turn. but you have to start getting on the throttle early to avoid losing the slide (you don't have much inertia to work with). keep the throttle low enough to not gain any angle. when you get to the apex, hopefully you've already got traction; if not, lift off enough to get it back, and accelerate out like a normal grip corner.

that IMO is an efficient use of the drift; under power, there's only one way to get the most out of the tires, and that's under full grip. but when decelerating, you have some options, and the drift is one of them. the scandinavian flick was invented for this purpose.

2fast4u- when you wrote the guide, had you actually tried drifting? without ridiculous skill and good equipment, RWD RC drifting is quite hard.

1) would awd slow down my xmod ALOT or do i HAVE to install lithium ions

2) can i drift with this setup eventhough my car is this heavy

Drifting a RWD Xmod with rubber tires is so improbable... not impossible, but infinitely hard to pull off.

Grab an AWD kit.
