    I just wanted to say Gday as I am new to this site and I also wanted to say that I just bought my first RC Drift car. I have owned several real imports and most of them have been built with a Drift theme in mind. I am currently looking at buying a J-Spec S15 Silvia for my daily driver which should be fun. Anyway I have ordered a HPI Stage D Sprint 2 (which includes a 20T motor), Spektrum DX3 radio, LRP AI Bullet Reverse Digital ESC and two Fusion club packs. What do you think about my choices, will these be good for Drift? I will post up some pictures when it all gets here ;)

    Also what are all your thoughts on the LRP AI Bullet ESC? It took me ages to decide what ESC to get but I went with this one because of its no motor limit and really low price. I like the idea of it being fully automatic too. I just don't know much about the AI's and what the disadvantages are. Here are some details.



    No motor turn limit

    Handles 4-7 cell battery packs, 4.8V-8.4V

    AI (Artificial Intelligence)-no manual user setup required just pull throttle on transmitter to set up

    Digital interference protection circuitry guards against radio interference, empty transmitter batttery or model outside of radio range-model stops instead of continuing uncontrolled

    Motor and battery connectors installed-no soldering needed


    One Associated AI Bullet Reverse Electronic Speed Control with motor capacitors, tie-wraps, mounting tape, user guide and color sticker set


    Installing on vehicle and connecting battery and motor

    Is this a forum or a ghost town?

    No one has been on here for days and no one seems to want to talk about Drifting R/C cars :(
