      10-02-2012 06:43 PM #1
      Eveyone into Drift cars? I just got a HPI e10 Drift Monster Mustang edition. Its a lot of fun. I ordered new wheel and tires, 911 GT3rs body, and LED lighting for headlights, fogs, brakes, and turns.

      Can't wait to put it all together. I'll take pictures when its all done.

      Just curious, Does anyone know of any good Chargers? I'm looking for one that is under $50 that will charge under an hour.

      BTW I own a Hpi E10 Toyota trueno and a Tamiya TL-01 BMW E30 M3 w/ Drift tires.

      ^^Thunder AC6, hobbyparts.com Will charge 5000mAh batts in one hour (up to 5c). There's an upgraded version whose model escapes me that does slightly faster charging/blancing/discharging.

      I rock the AC6, it's really all you need for drift cars (since you won't be needing to charge faster than 5amps etc...)

      I just got an E10 as well.
      Fun car out of the box
      Now I want to buy some upgrade/ aluminum parts and a stronger motor
      Goes pretty good on hard rubber touring tires too

      before you get all crazy with aluminum hop-ups... get a front one way and lock the rear diff. Then add parts that give you more suspension adjustment (caster, toe, camber). Add some front-kick up (spacers under the front suspension carrier) and start tuning.

      Once you're ready for shiny; invest in a good set of shocks (Tamiya TRF, for example) and springs.

      Broke my steering shiz. And the 15 turn moter won't stay put so. I guess it's time for some aluminum junk. E ten is a fun cheap car till I gets expensive. Also have a 1994 era rc12l extended

      HPI Cup Racer with custom front one way, increased caster and adding lots of weight to the front bumper. Steering geometry is ass, but that's why its a WIP.





      Our biggest meet to date!

      i got the sprint 2 sport a couple weeks ago just for drifting. (came with grips and drifts) before i even purchaced it i also grabbed a trueno body off the shelf. gave it a quick (IE sh**ty) paint job since i knew i would be hitting stuff with it. next body will be an s13 with lighting.



      doesn't look anything like that now its all banged up. i call it my drift missle body

      ^^ no reason you can't move out here! If I moved out there, we'd have no place to drift (location is my work's café...) Normally, it's just ~6 of us.

      Yokomo DIB ver-RS is released! a good option for anyone wanting to skip the RTR money pit.

      I have different models of rc drift cars and these can easily grab a winning position in tracking race. I got a fun with it.

      That's and old chassis man. Too bad you didn't get sprint 2 Flux with brushless motor.

      I realize that. But it gives me something to do when I'm not running my SCT or crawler.
