Tokyo Street Drifting Rc Style. Now as much as I enjoy playing around with RC drift cars myself, I’ve all but given up on trying to further learn how to do it properly.

Tokyo Street Drifting Rc Style

I actually haven’t touched my RC car since last fall, ever since that feature I did on the custom RWB Porsche body that Russ over at RE-Xtreme built for me. Lack of spare time, combined with the extreme intimidation I get when attempting to drive at an RC track in Japan, has kind of put me off. But when Johnny at Weld called me the other week, telling me of this big RC drift event he was organizing at the Max One track in Tokyo, I got rather excited and decided to stop by. The event was held over two days and combined a display of all the latest parts from all the big RC Drift brands, a great way to pick up discounted hop-ups for your car and other miscellaneous gadgets.

Johnny rented the second floor to a brand new building opposite Oiimachi station in Tokyo… …and had all participating companies set up their displays inside.

Optic Fiber Scale LED Guide

There are certain models, such as Audis, which just feel bland when a sticker is used in place of an LED strip. In an attempt to remedy the problem, I devised a cheap and effective way of creating a strip of scale LED lights using optic fibers and LEDs. What you will need: An optic fiber toy, or optic fiber strands ($9 from Amazon)Light BucketsLEDs (one per strip/color)Black or Silver tape, or stickerExacto Blade or Hobby KnifeScissorsGlue Gun, or other quick drying glueRulerDremel (optional) First, you need black or silver tape, or a sticker that you can cut to shape.

Once you’ve cut your tape, lay it down sticky side up. Count how many LEDs you’d like, and then cut that many strands off of your optic fiber toy. Using your ruler, lay your strands on the sticky tape and spread them equally apart. This is how it should look when you’re done laying your strands. HOW TO: Make body clip pull tabs. So I've been out of the game for a while but one thing that stuck with me was bleeding fingernails and fingertips from removing body clips.

I used to make these years ago when I got sick of the pain and struggle. Figured I'd make a little DIY tutorial - for those who haven't seen or done it themselves. (I'm sure there are a few How To's of this method already - but - I browsed this section and couldn't find one.) It's a very simple, cheap and easy method. I used items I had lying around the house, so it really didn't cost me anything!

Do you want to start RC Drifting? - MAX SPEED TECHNOLOGY

We love RC drifting, and know that almost everyone that tries it with us, feels the same after a very short time – often before even buying their own chassis! I wanted to take some time to write a post to help guide everyone who is new to RC Drifting on how to select an RC drift car, setting your priorities and hopefully help make getting started a little easier for you. The most common question we get asked is “which chassis is best?”.

To answer this with a specific answer is next to impossible, because each driver wants different things from their chassis. People drive with different styles, different settings, and have different requirements. What I plan to do with this post is simply write about each of the MST chassis out there, and let you know a little about each of them and why you might consider them. The MS-01D is our mid motor, belt drive chassis and it’s available in 3 versions. MST UK MST RC Drift Cars - Want to get involved with RC Drifting?

Airbrush Paint Car. Easy Paint-Pen Detailing - RC Car Action. I am always working on new projects for Radio Control Car Action, and this week I have a sneak-peek at an SCX10 Deadbolt I’m detailing out for a How-To article in an upcoming issue. I have been detailing scale vehicles for many years now and I used that knowledge to write an article that shows you how to add scale details to your truck and how to make those details look more real. The tips in this article are not limited to the SCX10 and will work on any scale vehicle that you are working on. The base truck for this article is an Axial Deadbolt and as you can see that my truck doesn’t look like the standard issue truck any more. Check out the October issues of Radio Control Car Action magazine to see how I made this happen but you can see one of the tips right now.

Here is the stock truck. And here is the after version. The stock wheels on the SCX10 series of trucks has details such as nuts and bolts to make them look more real. How To Tips & Instructions.

Blog – How to Paint Your RC Car Body Shell into a Masterpiece. When it comes to RC related tasks, painting a body can be one of the most intimidating tasks for a modeler. There are so many talented people out there who create masterpieces that painting your first body can be rather daunting. I have seen many of these people at racetracks and clubs around the country running what I call the “One-Color Wonders .”

RC MAZDA RX7 1/10 drift Homemade interior. Untitled. This guide has been in the making for months now. It has taken this long due to time constraints on my part. Please note that the guide is based in part on GT3 & GT4, but the theories can be applied to any version of the game. Weight Transfer Understanding the simple physics of weight transfer is key to tuning cars. When stationary, the weight of the car is distributed evenly on all four wheels. Understeering and Oversteering Understeering is the lack of responsiveness of the car’s front in turning into a corner. Oversteering is the tendency of a car’s rear to slip out in mid-corner. Our aim is to get rid of understeer and oversteer as much as possible, since it ruins lap times and tire wear. Spring Rates The Spring Rate controls the transfer of weight of the car.

Let's use a medium weight FR car (1200kg) as an example. FR cars have more varied requirements. So the next big question is how much Spring Rate is not too much or too little? HOW TO: A basic guide to suspension geometry and settings - Chassis & Suspension - MST UK - RC Drift Forum. So it's appears it's high time to explain just what all these adjustments you can make to your MST chassis can do and the effect it will have on your driving. The foremost thing to remember about settings is that you are trying to achieve balance.

Too much of anything can become a bad thing, unless of course you are trying to achieve something very specific. The simpler you keep things, the better it will be. How to setup your driftcar (Drifting 101) Drifting 101There have allways been a lot of questions about how to set up your driftcar, I thought it was a good idea to make a thread about this, gathering it all in one place.1. DifferentialsTo get good control of the vehicle when drifting, it is important to have a locked reardiff and a locked or adjustable frontdiff. There are different types of differentials.1.1. Oil FilledAn oil filled differential is an open diff that you can change the level of lock with the viscosity of the oil you fill them with. Usually, 300k in the rear and 150k in the front should do the trick.Some fill these with glue to make them 100% locked, this will work, but its better to get a real locked diff if available.filling-oil2.jpg1.2.
