ive got a 27 turn team orion "stock" motor and it seems to have a lot of torque, great for drifting, i use it my TB-01..... not sure how much it costs though, ill have a look at frontline for it.....

Have tried many different motors on drift cars with PVC tyres - everything from silvercan 540s, to stockers and mods. Yes lotsa torque is what you want.


540 has lots of torque but is pretty slow. Yokomo tyres grip a bit better than PVC so you'll need a bit more power.


Ran a 27t stock motor (a Trinity P2K known for more torque) last weekend but although it was better... more speed wanted! We had geared this lower than if we were racing in Stock... so top speed is nothing flash.


Favourite is still a mild mod 17-ish turn. Gives the best combo of speed and torque, makes driving much easier. So run a mild mod with bearings and gear it low, you can afford to set the timing quite advanced too for more torque.





Ultimate is a Novak brushless... heck, you won't even need drift tyres to drive sideways with that!!!

a 27t stocker is more than adequate. I use a kisbey 19t motor with my yoke cgm equipped with the drift tires. I think you will find the included pinion (30t) is a tad tall for most mod motors. your final drive will be around 5.49:1 with the 30t pinion. dropping to a 25 t pinion will be a bit more motor friendly.

haha... one can drift using nitro tourers running on rock-hard Tamiya kit tyres... so maybe my speed expectations might differ to others.

drift is the only way you can drive a 1:8th kyosho land jump on road.
for those who don't know its a old chain driven buggy with a locked rear diff.

My son has a Yokomo drift car with a 17T x 3 Peak motor & it seems to have enough power.

Savage has enough power to drift anywhere, even on tarmac.


Rip your tyres to shreds though...
