    hey, drifting is a controled slide used primarily to negotiate a turn in which you want to keep an increased speed or stay at higher rpms. most of the time it is slower to use on a corner but if properly done it can be faster. DRIFTING IS NOT POWERSLIDING. power sliding is flooring it around a corner in a camaro drifting is a CONTROLLED slide.

    I saw many ppl made their tires out of PVC pipes, and glue it onto the rim.

    pvc pipe?you mind as well just take the tires off and ride on the rims or drive the car on ice.

    i would say try useing foam tires.Not rubber tires with foam inserts.Foam tires.

    You can't use foam tires for drifting, they grip too much. You have to use hard compound tires with firm inserts.

    you would have to try it first before you claim that,mastec.and even if you did try it and it didnt work for you,it could be caused by your level of driving skill.

    Have you ever ran foam tires Tim? I have, and it doesn't work, and it wouldn't work for you either. If it did, wouldn't all the top drivers be running them to drift with? Or are you saying that their drivings skills aren't up to par either. You drive a Rustler, you don't even like on-road cars "with their silly little wheels"(you said that) anyway, what would you know about it. At the beginning of this you didn't even know what 'drifting' was!!!!
    Before you tell me I should try something, you should check to see if I have first.

    the reason why the foam tires didnt work for you,mastec,would,most likely be caused by you not knowing how to drive.

    Hows the weather in your little world? You play with the toys of this hobby ie. Traxxas Rustler,Bolink. And how do you figure you have ALOT more experience at this than I? You say this may not be obvious to others? Do you really think they are that stupid?

    I must be nice living in your little dream world where you know something, there has only been a few that have agreed with you, probably around the age of 13 or so, but as soon as they get their cars and try your ideas, will soon dissagree with you. So live it up King Of Nothing.

    You read them to learn something, then you dissagree with it so, I guess, to save face.
