So how many elecy drifters are on this site? if so what chassis are you using?

I have recently converted from nitro and love the brushless lipo power for sliding.

I've got a Great Vigor BV-1 that I use now. I'm thinking of getting the HPI Pro-D Spec R kit from RCHobbies though.

I run a ta05 v2 with a tekin fxr and a yokomo 19t drift motor. Still learning so the shell has suffered but never fails to impress.:thumb:

For a straight out of the box drifter, you can't beat a Team Magic E4D.
These are excellent and very easy to drift. Top price too, at around $399

We have tested nearly all the Tamiya and HPI offerings and found the Team Magic cars to be a lot easier to setup and the most cost effective of them all.

I'm running a TT-01d with a EzRun 9t brushless setup. Easy to drift and tough as teak.

My next car will be a TB-03. I'm not impressed by the E4D.

Pro-D feels like a pig and not as responsive as i'd like, yes it does plough on a bit... drift it rally-style.

But mine's running on std kitbox settings with T-Drift tyres and haven't
done any special tuning to it; used as a control to compare others against mainly.

Never got around to seeing how it'll go grippy on a track yet.

LOL Im in the process of building the spec R, hopefull they fixed a bit of that, Ive got a high speed steering servo too so hope fully it will do what I tell it when I tell it to. Got any vids?
