    No, I doubt you could drift them but they are pretty neat looking :)

    They say they are driftable, but i'd have to see it before i believed it. But ya, those are perty sick looking.

    they ARE 4wd...and fully proportional. so they should drift just fine...I'm going to get one just to find out. pics soon.

    my tyco rc !!! yeahhhhh lol

    i just got one 2 weeks ago. This was becasue i wanted to get into drifting and i didn't realize that my tl-01 could have. lol

    This car is amazing. for the price it comes with a 7.2 nicd battery with charger 4 AA and an extra set of wheels that have rubber on them .

    My complaints:
    - glitchy radio system 9 that isn't as responsive as a hobby radio.
    - very noisy gear box do to how the gears are loosly in place
    - no shocks (basically like a bolink pan car)
    -noisy servo
    -cheesy stickers that say drift kings

    Pluses:
    - locked diff
    -stock 540 sized motor with a built in turbine
    -metal shaftes on axels and driveshaft
    -hexagonal hub witch is universal to fit hobby wheels
    -threaded wheel nuts
    - the drift wheels can be mounted on most hobby cars
    -tires are abs or hard rubber

    -I made a car domain page for this car
    i added many mods to this car including
    -electric flip lights
    -yellow paint job
    -planning to install head lights

    Kenji !!

    I remember you were Flamed for posting your Drift King on another Forum.. I supported you on that one...

    I would suggest to others that they Try these first before buying into a Drift King

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-1-10-HBX-SK...6016783200QQcategoryZ2565QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    They are made by HBX, are Tamiya TL-01 replica's and are perfect for getting into drift on the Cheap.. thats if you can win one on e-bay Cheap enough.... Remember to Include $65 Postage because these are shipped world wide from Australia..
    Go into your Own Home Town E-bay and Look up HBX...


    Kenji : your TL-01 will drift, just throw the Drift Tyres from your Drift king onto your TL-01.... :D

    But under a "experanced hobbiest" you would need mods done. But i dont say it cant drift, im saying it's probably crappy at it. Just My opinion tho...

    well actually i had just got this car not long ago and that is probably just as far that i would go with this piece. it drifts preety good i will post the vids soon. well having many mods doesn;t mean the hobbyiest is experienced. it could mean some guy with alot of money to waste.
