All pumped up to go out drifting today for the first time (out of the house anyways) Joining the guys from One10 Drift (Bc locals) for some much needed lessons. Grabbed some stuff used after our local hobby show and thought I'd share as I know some of you are into this stuff too!

This is mine so far...
My base is a Losi XXXs chassis (thanks Kbroen)
- Stock Novak ESC
- Komoto Dragon
- DX3 TX/RX
- HPI 6mm wheels
- One10 Drift tires
- 200mm HPI Silvia body


I'm waiting on a bunch of body parts and some are here in the shop, over the next while I want to turn this into a fairly detailed AE86 Trueno.
Body Stuff...

- HPI AE86 body 190mm
- HPI Stage - D Trueno body kit
- HPI Body Tuner Kit Type-A
- HeyOK Performance LED kit with built in Pico switch
- Full Styrene interior


Wheel & Tire
- One10 Drift tires/carpet
- HPI Work XSA 02C wheels (6 & 9mm ... whatever hits the edges nice)


Performance stuff
- One Way diff (cause Kev says so) ...much to learn since my usual deal is scale 4x4's so I'm sure the list and price tag will grow after the maiden voyage!

A few pics of the car as it sits this week with the sacrificial body on it (saves Rick destroying the nice one) ...although I don't expect him to be that close to me he could still hit me while I'm parked! :shock:

Yes I know the rear wheels are the wrong offset!!!! Kev & Matt told me they'd be wrong...new ones on the way

Great suggestion on the body, do you think it would help to coat the entire front and rear bumper areas (inside) with Shoe Goe to prevent cracking after I install the lights and stuff?
May take up quite a bit of impact (From Ricks car)?

on my drifter i coat the frot and rear and the side like a inche and a haft high it make a good protection and the body feels less empty when you get hit

Oh man we had so much fun and will be participating bi-weekly for sure. The car worked well but unfortunately I didn't listen to my mechanic when he told me to break my rebuild in properly....Wide open Kev had the motor failing on battery pack 7 :paranoid:.

The event was cool, track had right and left lanes, something called "street Rules" which of course I wasn't the best at...then they turn the lights out and you've gotta rely on headlights...man I'm stoked for this, think you'd like it Mike!

Al my new parts show up this week so I'll post progress onthe car, pictures of the interior and body when I get at it. :luxhello:

Ahhh you mean how do they work not...hey Kev how was your night? :laugh:
So exited I lost my head for a minute! Well I'm just starting to soak in the info so I've got some novice baseline stuff this week. If I'm tuned in now let me know and I"ll share what I've got.
- So far I'm running the XXXs (any Awd touring car will do but was told this is a nice start)
- ESC with reverse (stock Novak)
- 19T Touring car Brushed motor...Still not sure why but most of the drift guys swear by brushed motors...I'll pass that on when I understand it.
- Rear diff is almost completely locked
- One way front diff (actually this weeks addition) This is neat...basicly the front diff while under power works normaly, under deceleration it freewheels simulating hitting the E-brake pitching the car sideways.
- The tire compounds is something else all together...still getting onto that. This week I purchased a set for running on the carpet track, I've also got a set for asphalt...both sets are made by one of our members, MattC this is the local club that we joined this week for our first outing.

Did I do better this time? :D

How does the one way diff work? Since you are just getting started do you find it is helping you or is it just making it a bit harder?

Actually I haven't got in installed yet, parts are here though. On my first outing i ran my car with the rear locked and the front open. I enjoyed the way it handled. The seasoned drifters said whatever you drive first usually you preffer. After running it for a while I actually liked it. I have driven other cars set up with the one way and it works completely different.
I'll be installing the one way over the next 2 weeks after tomorrows meet. All new parts to rebuild the car so I may aswlee do the serious stuff all at once.
Did you get your car yet Jason? ...if so start a thread so we can have a look!

This is as far as I've gotten for this weekend.
After frying the motor last time out I picked up a quick replacement LRP 19T.
Been reading up on Brushless v.s. Brushed setups and I don't know enough about that yet to make a choice...Brushed it is for now.
Picked up 3 new sets of wheels and 4 sets of tires, the ones in the picture are the carpet tires mounted on 6mm & 9mm HPI wheels.

Last meet they had the lights out for a bit so I used one of my old LED sets. No light buckets, just some holes through the lexan and lots of shoe goo. Again this is the test body, will post pics of the real body next.

This is the real body and Stage D body kit. Planning for an interior, cage and driver lots of cool lights and gadgets. I have seen some pretty cool scale drift cars lately and really want to give it a try.

This is the second set of wheels, the 9mm rears will be here tomorrow.
3xs_stp_4.jpg

After I get my full day of running in tomorrow (fingers crossed) it all gets ripped appart.
I now have the full Graphite Chassis upgrade and I'm pretty sure all of my performance parts, springs front diff....So I might as well do it all at once.
Next meet is in 2 weeks so hopefully I can get it all done.

An AE86 body eh. I must say I really do not like you at this point!!! jk

I think I am just going to paint my AE86 body black now, I will get angry if I put a ton of hours into mine as I know yours will look better.

So are we going to create a Crawl Canada Team and we can AE86 team painted cars? Some sort of red and white with black painted hood, wing and bumpers?

i just bought a nitro onroad from a buddy of mine. it came with the trueno body on it. its not that great a body, but somewhere to start anyway. i dont know what brand the car is, but i can snap some pics.

that drifter looks pretty nice. i'm trying to find one myself to buy. i'm leaning towards the Yokomo drift car cause its the best for price and available hop-ups.

post some action shots with them lights!
