    With the sucess of the yokomo drift platform, HPI have released in japan some drift tyres and wheels, they come in 26mm and 30mm pairs. they are called Stage-D and are being used in august as a control tyre for a hpi sponsered rc drifting event. to me they look rubber, cant be sure though. ive also heard that HPI will e releasing a drift chassis pack, dont know anyting about it though. could it be unvailed in august at the stage-d event?????
    anyway here are some pictures...........

    what did I say a month ago, the manufacturers are barging in, it won't be long before rules/regs are announced and we're all wallet racing again.

    I've been around rc for nearly 30 years, I've seen it happen time and time again, RC Drifting = cash cow!
  13. wow i hope they work just as good as my pvc. i cant wait to try them out

    Thats what I have come across to but I still want to get ahold of some and see if they work very well on an electric...

    I dont see why not, just get your electric going fast. No more Ballets...
  17. they work outstanding on both elec and gas. mine came with the conversion kit.
