    im lookin for a drift car, i heard something about these haveing gear diffs and that might not work for drifting, but i dont understand why, could someone explain if this is true or not, and why

    also, just wondering if people in general like these cars

    Im not a big fan of those cars, but im all for the use of those. I perfer AE and HPI for life.... but thats just me :roll: :wink:

    Gear diffs. This means poo poo caca! Any kind of diffrentals will work, it just may be a little harder or differnt then some. But, IMO, i lock ALL the diffs i play with, so it doesnt bother me at all. So yes they are useable, just may take some getting used to and such.

    the other type of diff is a Ball diffrental. WHat the diffs do is distributes power to one wheel or the other. Theres 2 in the car, one in the front, one in the back. If one wheel is spinning, it puts the power to the other wheel basicly. I lock my diffs due to it keeps both wheels spinning at the same speed, reguardless of if anything is hindering it or putting excessive friction on them.
