    The fastest and best way to learn all that is to buy a "RC Driver" mag, it has all those terms and such in the back.

    PVC is that white plastic pipe you get for plumbing from the hardware store, and ABS is black plastic piping you also get from the hardware store. I suggest looking for ABS its black (more realistic) and it simulates real drifting better than PVC, It is also favored by most drifters.

    From what I've been told from people ABS pipe is what you should use. Apperently if you use PVC pipe when you drift the friction causes heat and the pipe lets off harmful gases.

    I used to work at a shop where vinyl was injection molded. the fumes were bad enough, but not irritating. I think a drift car would not give off enough fumes to bother anyone, especially if it is used outdoors where there is plenty of fresh air.
