    is it an E10 chassis?

    If it is... they're only good for holding shells off the ground.

    If you're actually planning on running the thing, get something better...
    Tamiya TT01 is usually best choice at that pricerange.

    TT01 are a good entry level car and very strong (i have heard of people running them over and surviving it) also can cop a fair hit at 80 km and still drive it back

    If you went that way get a bearing kit and alloy shaft this will mkae run time and EVERYTHING better..... and you can put and body you want on it really

    And if you wanted to go a bit futher a 5.5 turn brushless system is great for drifting but some people recommend the 9 turn but each to there own

    Cheers brad

    HPIs nitro drifter would be based on their Nitro RS4 3evo which is about 5-6yrs old now.

    It's a solid design & runs well, but nitro is heaps harder to drift with than electric. Also due to noise limits where/when u can play in suburbia.

    It comes & goes; regular turnover of suspects.

    Them younger kiddies might not be into yapping on forums these days, preferring narcistic bookface ways of posting selfpics of themselves...

    Hi all,
    Long time since I've done any RC and been on AUSRC, and a about to get back into it non competitively...

    I was too looking at the HPI RS4 3evo myself just for giggles and funzies, and I am glad this thread exists...
    It goes to show (a) I am getting old (b) there's interest in drift - albeit a little.

    Regarding the car, I know parts are kind of everywhere, as most LHS's not only stock the car but also the parts....
    Engine wise, I myself aint too fussed, as I know it can be tuned, and there's many other high port engines available, but i'm not sure on mount configs.
    I've seen a few vids of 1/10 nitro drifting on youtube, and boy are some of them running too lean.. I had to stop watching some of them as I was sure that the person who posted the vid was not going to be posting too many more vids with a tune up like that

    anyway, hi, hi and glad to see this thread !
    * No broom broom @ the moment =8'^(
