    Drifter?

    so I found this picture on the interwebs and I was wondering if anyone raced these and if it is a drift racing truck or what? I would like to make my slash into this but I need to know what they run! If any one knows help is appreciated! Thanks

    Here's my chevy truck:

    And with some gorilla tape on the tires, you have a drifter:

    Never tried electrical tape, but I know regular duct tape doesnt work well. It gets eaten up quick. The gorilla tape worked good, also found out that when taping ur tires, dont use regular duct tape either. The gorilla tape works good for that too.

    That would work good! I am lowering my slash and modifying it a little so it will be "aerodynamic" haha thanks for the advice!

    Is your video a 2wd or 4wd? Just curious. Neat idea.

    You're taping the outside of the tires? It's the first I've heard of it.

    i know for the cars that were made for drifting like the tc10 my teacher would take old wheels and a certain size pvc pipe and then slip it over and glue it. i think there wheels were the same size though not a 2.2/3.0 like a sc truck has.

    Yes I did this to drift around for awile. I think it also stoped ballooning a bit too. But then you loose traction and when on asphalt you have to acelerate slowly or you spun out
