    My neighbor and I recently started drifting our RC cars. I've got an RS4-1 he has an RS4-3. We are using PVC for tires at the moment. I would like to get some ABS just because it's black. No one in DFW stocks or can get this stuff that I can find. I have tried Home Depot, Lowes, and several plumbing supply houses. No luck.

    If anyone out there is willing to ship, I'll pay. I figure it's as easy as cutting a 6' pipe into 2' pieces, taping it together, and slapping a label on it.


    P.S. What do the other Dallas area drifters do for tires?

    I use pvc mostly, or drift rings.....pvc has held up pretty well the only problem I have is having to clean my car after a good hard run from the pvc shearing off...

    Ill check around for some leads on abs around here, I figured home depot or lowes would have some abs pipes but ive never checked to be honest...
