Well We tried Drift Type T and A on the parking Lot
Type T is too Slippery.
Type A us too Grippy.

I will have to figure out how to lock my rear diff on my E4RS.
But to most o fus its too Sticky or Too lose.

Also whoever has a Broken gardne hose that is not used anymore and can donate that, would be great.
We are planning to set up a Small drift track next to the Regular track.

T-drifts are really the only option there is, Ive tried PVC but its just a joke. So ive just been practicing with t-drifts and got pretty good with them. Cant wait to come out to a bash! Is there anything going on this sunday?

If its not raining every sunday.
I advice to come out 10am-12pm that when you don thave to deal with Trucks.
Since its the main core ppl there. And mainly touring cars and drifters.

Once 12pm hits its utter bash, entertain the crowed utter chaos and destruction.

As far for Tires
T drifts is Very slow Drifts
A Drifts is fast drifts

This is the first time for me using Type A so it was different.
I need to find a way to break loose easier on command with Type As

Lame, I get out of work at 6:30am on saturday's.
Well the speed of the drift isent much of a bother to me but more of the angle. With T-drifts I get a nice speed drift with a good angle and control. But with A's It seems like its just flying sideways around a corner for a brief second. But locking the driff. I think is the only real thing you can do for breaking loose on demand. Ive tried a few times to lock mine but have it so Its not permanent but it often just slips. Jamming 22 guage solid copper wire between the gears isent doing the trick for me, its time for some drastic measures!

Stay away from Traxxas and Associated, and some HPI frequencies.
If you are FM i doubt there is any issue, b/c the guys that are using FM use very rare and hard to get crystals.
All the high end electronic users are on 2.4ghz.

But just bring 1-2 extra sets of crystals if you are on AM.
Else ask around if any one on that frequency, one of us will help you out.
