PostSubject: Base Starting point to get into drifting   Thu Oct 28, 2010 11:40 pm

Chassis Selection:
Drift chassis are nice but most of the time build cheaply and build only for drifting.
So the logical choice is a decent entry level Touring car, which can do both.

Basic Chassis:
Ofna JL10 (Probably the cheapest competitive chassis out of the box)
Team Associated TC4 (Every one can get parts for them and they are easy to buy for cheap)
Team Magic E4D (Its upgradable to a E4RS E4FS which are high end carbon chassis)

More Exotic Cars:
Any Current Xrays (Expensive lil buggers)
Team Magic E4RS/FS (My choice due to battery location and light weight)
Losi JRX-S Type R (Very Expensive But great battery location and structual integrity)
Losi JRX Pro (Front motor Location)
Tiger Moth LCG V10 (Battery Location and open space)
Team Associated TC5
and the list goes on...

Whats different in drift cars ?
Well weight shifts and what u want it to do.
Weight is in the front or is able to shift it to the front. U want all ur control in the front 2 tires since ur back is floating most of the time.
So cars with front motors are preferred but is not a must. Most entry or pro level touring cars can shift their weight via suspension.
Hence again its adviced to get a Touring car based Chassis not a Drift Chassis so you do more with in the hobby.

Power Plant:
No you dont need the best electronics to drift.
Brushed Motors and ESC at 13.5t ish will get you start drifting.
If you cant find specific electronics in brushed for cheap. Look into Short Course 2wd Trucks RTR. Most people get rid of that system once they got the Short Course truck. Its a Great Budget system to get a Drifter Going. (Blitz, SC10 are the ones you looking for)

Else if you want to not worry about it no more get a brushless.
Motor 8.5 - 13.5 are comfortable motors
Esc make sure its a decent ESC that has cooling (Drifting will heat up ur ESC alot)
