5 tips to help you become an expert RC car drifter

Are you still wondering what the best way to drift is? One of the best ways of doing this is getting in a lot of practice, and this only comes with years of experience. There are a few things which you will need to keep in mind:

  • You will need an RC car which comes with a four wheel drive if you want to drift properly.
  • Electric RC cars are going to work much better than regular nitro cars for those less experienced.
  • Smooth tires are very important when you are still figuring out how to drift.
  • You will need to make sure the transmission is sealed properly if you are to drift well.
  • The track will need to be low-friction if you want a great drift.

It goes without saying that you need a four wheel drive if you are to drift well. Without this type of control, your car just isn’t going to slide properly, and you may even end up flipping it. You will also need to get special tires so that you can slide properly on corners. If you don’t want to spend too much money on tires, then get some ABS or PVC pipes and wrap them around your tires. You could also consider wrapping your tires with electric tape. It all comes down to how much you want to spend.

Learning how to drift can cause a lot of dust and dirt to get picked up from the track. You need to make sure that none of this can get into your transmission and cause damage to your car. If it gets to the engine it will only wear it down which will result in a poor experience for you. Lastly, always remember to start off on a low-friction track, and only move to regular tracks once you’ve built up enough confidence.
