Picked up these HPI tyres for 200 yen a pair mounted on rims from Super Rajicon's new shop.
Hot Bodies Hpi Racing 26mm Mounted Cut Slick on 10 Spoke Rim +4mm Offset.
I put them on my Drift Package car. Awesome.
I had forgotten how fast RC cars are. Accelleration is awesome!
Haven't smelled the motor getting hot in a long time. 20 minute session.
This will be a home for all my RC related stuff previously without a home. I have a Yokomo Drift Package with a few mods that I am enjoying in the drift scene. Recently in 2010 it has become an Full Counter Drift setup with less 4wd and more Rwd.
I have loaded the history and my current collection. So really the blog starts from here. 09/09/09 easy to remember.
Enjoy my RC Drift Blog. It may not be updated too often but stick it in your RSS feed list anyway.
My Drift Package Chassis (MR-4TC SD CM) is now at a reliable stage. It has the additional parts from the updated kit including the gods sent easy access battery clip. Apart from the other accessories listed below, it's still pretty stock.
I want to add the carbon conversion to save some weight though. And the Drift Master alloy front and rear gearbox housings. Other future mods will be small additions to tighten up the sloppiness of the steering and suspension.
This body is awesome! Set for the street on chrome CRKai, it looks great. But there is a problem. Even with suspension set at ultimately low levels, the body is unable to be lowered enough at the rear on the standard posts.
So you are left with a dilemma.
Run the body high or cut the rear posts... hmmm.
For now I don't like many wheels that I have on this car apart from the Emotion CR-Kai
They all stand out too much.
Even the awesome RS are too bright. (they will be painted Siver)
But until then it will not look it's best.
High side view. The little side fender addition wings already have some damage.
TE37 look good but the offset is wrong for this car.
