THAT WAS COOL, damn i just sold mine!!!
i never tought about doing that. I do know to keep one of them up to par it coast about as much as a real car. When i raced them, every race i would brake something.

Re: R/C drifting this is a must see its great

thats crucial i wanted a nitro car for a long time but never got into em. Id rather spend money on my real car. Im still having trouble deciding what kind of car i want.

them dudes have some mad control over there cars ..or some vary slick tires.
i could almost get mine to do that (the electric one) but i had top of the line tires all the time so it was pretty much glued to the track.(car is a traxxas 4-tec)
my truck which was a nitro burning monster..lol (team losi xxx nt) that could rip em loose anytime you hit the gas.
all that cost way too much for me ... between race entry and parts it must have cost as much as if not more than my real car now
the nitro truck has a blown clutch and the car is sitten pretty on my dresser (the car show car, chicks love it...lol)

Re: R/C drifting this is a must see its great

i have a nitro one with a 2 speed tranny that was clocked at 60mph.... some people say that if get the tranny set up perfect and use the race gas they could hit 90... have yet to see that though...
