    Drifting setup

    Hi,

    I heard a few things about a drifting setup and I just wanted to set things straight.
    Could anyone please guide me about the settings of things like -
    Can I increase the wheel turn angle?
    Should I loosen or tighten the slipper clutch and what does each do?
    Any other things I should adjust?

    Thanks!

    (P.S. thanks to gorilla for is help also haha)

    I use tamiya drift tech tires. And lock the rear diff. This makes it easier to make it slide out and makes it easier to keep the drift going. I use green springs and 50w oil in the front shocks and orange springs with 15w oil in the rear. The light oil and soft springs help the rear have just enough grip to be controllable and the stiff front end helps reduce chassis roll. Its all about the right balance between chaos and control.http://s1294.photobucket.com/user/Ji...fxle2.mp4.html

    Like the way it drifts. Going to have to adjust mine to get it more controllable like that.

    Going to try play a bit with my current setup and adjust it slowly so I will learn everything (before buying new springs).
    Thanks bro!
