    Herm, earler you said it was FWD. Lucky. Anyway, this presents a challenge. Your best bet would be to use PVC wheels, and electral taped fronts. Try that and tell me results.

    Also, have you ever drifed a PVC Rc car?

    Calm down...

    Read my post again, it says what i believe you should do. I was just asking if you have used a AWD car with PVC before, wondering if you knew how it works while driving with PVC. then, you would have an easier time useing a FWD.

    Not to be making you pissed or nething,...
    But i was tryin that its like impossible for me to drift a FWD.
    I took the rear belt of the HPI Pro 3.
    All i can do is wip my tail out but the car does not slideand if i do slide its a 180. not a slide.

    But maybe if the mini cooper is shorter and the weight is different i might be able to drift it with tape or pipes.

    Tell me the result too i wanna know.

    really the best thing to do would be use PVC, and find a way to lock up your rear end, without disturbing the front. That way your rear is gripless and has no choice but to go where the front wheels make it. So, use PVC and lock the rear for braking. Not sure how thats going to work, but its possible.

    And instead of trying to do all this, drop all this money to try and do this, just go and buy a AWD kit. Hypotheticly, your not going to get it to work. You have to be able to think like a circle, and know a lot about drifting, physics, and the RC Car workings.

    Depending on the kit you choose, if you get a RTR or a Kit, it will range from around $100USD to $400USD depending on brand, chassis, and what you currently own.

    USD is United States Dollar. So read it again and its exactly as it says...

    thats to much 100$$$ dollers :shock:
  15. SpArKeY_STi

    Good luck with anything then. Cause $100 doesnt really get you far, at all. A TC3 is $300, Kit its $250 + ~$150 for ESC and Tx and Rx, Plus Your motor and such. So your just going to have to find your own way to make it work.
