RC Drift Bible

Welcome to the RE-Xtreme RC Drift Bible.

In an attempt to answer many of the regular questions I get asked, I'll pass on some knowledge, add something to think about as well as some tutorials and examples.

The following categories are covered.

But as everyone has a different idea of RC drift style, Locations to drive, technology and focus, I sometimes pose questions rather than provide absolute answers.
