We need to find a carpet place to do that.
And we need 2-3 guys come out regularly and practice Duo or Trio Drifts.
I done it before but it takes alot to do that, with the Groovydrift guys.
Set up is quite a but different.

I am up for that kind of drift If you are =D

By the way do you drift decent w/o countersteer or you planning to dive right into countersteer ?
Because Countersteer is a whole different animal when it comes to drifting.
Regular Drift > Regular Drift w/ counter steering NO MODS (Some Cars can counter steer shortly w/o the mod) > Drifting w/ Countersteer mod
That how i felt, was my way to get used to that countersteer. And servo speed helped alot.

PS: NICE MOTOR IN THE SHELL THERE =D I LIKE IT !!!
TIP Try to use the Flower Mode on ur camera (Macro its normaly always a flower symbol) Should Clear up the image alot.

I'm down for that... but my car is not.
... as far as carpeted area, I got a truck with a camper.
I can throw a roll of carpet in the back of my truck and outline a track with PVC.
Find a empty lot, with minimal traffic(people) BAM, got ourselves a carpet track.
Hey, do you know what kind of tires they are running?

I want to drift with CS mods... the drifts look so clean.
Have been reading how difficult it is, but hell.. that makes for a more entertaining hobby.
I mastered PVC drift 5 years ago in a matter of a couple months.

Now that I am actually dipping into RC's and how they work.
I am realizing that this will take up A LOT of my time to get a nice set up.
... then even more time to run that set up smoothly on a track.

Which is quite exciting.

P.S. hold on to the XXX-S for a little bit. Think I am going to pick that up over the Sprint 2 FLUX.

Well This sunday come out to Randy's !!! Tomorrow that is.
They are setting up a parking lot type track at randy's.
Its Not a track track but a track to get novice people into RC and teach them about the basics.
Some of us started to race now, and graduated from the parking lot bash,
but Randies is a much more relaxed, fun enviroment so we always come out to play or hang out.
If you got a touring car or drifter come out at 10am, once 1pm hits the ofroad and anything will show up.
Its pretty relaxing, even if you don't have anything come out get to know some of the faces on the forum.

As for tires. HPI Type T will act like PVC tires. HPI Type A you boogie around the track pretty fast drifts are alot mroe realistic with decent speeds. HPI D Nitro Drifts are very sticky and you making more like Race Drifts. I recoment Type A's for Randies parking Lot.

As for my XXX-S
Its still over at Randy's Hoby store.
Pop in the store when ever you have time and look at it.
(They released the Losi XXX line up so PARTS are all available)

I have decided with the Sprint 2.. leaning more towards the FLUX.
Either way it seems people have been able to make these chassis front mid motor.
Stock Sprint 2

Front MID motor Sprint 2...


Now I can't find any tutorials or DIY threads on the subject of.
... you guys tell me how he pulled it off.
Thinking he just swapped the front parts/tower with the rear.
The chassis and motor placement looks as though they have not moved.

He seems to have to flipped the buttom chassis and made new holes on to the chassis so his front and rear bolts on backwards.
But would have to see the car itself to know.

The chassis is still in the stock position and so is everything else except the.......Read below!!!

This is probably easier than you think. The front and rear "A" arms are the same and the F/R bulkheads are the same and that tells me you can move things around without a problem.... so move move the steering knuckles to the rear along with the steering cranks(you will have to drill new holes for the cranks) and make new linkages between the cranks and 1 long A$$ link from the servo to the crank system. Obviously move the rear hub carriers to the front and now the car is backwards. Flip bumpers and you should be done.

Let me know how it works!

I am more inclined to have a 'professional' do this.
Anyone wanna take a stab at it?
Ill provide the car...

I have 300 now.. 350 next week.
Need to do some math to see whats better to get.
A Sprint 2 or a Sprint 2 FLUX... I wanna go brushless...
So far it seems the FLUX is better way to go, money wise.

New FLUX!!
... and yes I am.
A mild one at first...
I think its set up is
Front 32/15
Rear 32/15

Ill put a 20T for the rear center pulley.
That will put it at 33%
