Hi guys and girls

I drive a HPI Pro 3. I used to drive it in normal touring races so the setup is completely different from driftcars (I presume...).

I was wondering what basic things I can change that will make my car drift better?
I'm still a student and I don't make any money so it would be cool if these changes are low-budget!

1st you have set up your suspension it should be soft in the front & med hard @ the rear

2nd im sure you have a highspeed motor all you have to do is make your FDR 7 0r 7.5

3rd lock your rear diff & front one way or center one way is recommended for the hand break effect of the car

i hope it helps :cheers:

Thanks for the respons!

1: that was on my list as well :p

2: by FDR you mean the ratio?

3: lock the diff? How do you do that? Isn't that bad for the car?

I'm already learning!

btw: is that Lexus shell yours? That's one very nice shell!

your kit is using ball diff right ? if it does check the link below

https://www.dubdrift.com/looking-for-something-f9/looking-for-spool-t692.htm

locking rear diff give the car more torque at the rear to make the car spin

FDR means the drive ratio

yah! it it a lexus ISF Racing concept shell

Hi there Pietero.

It would be best if you get yourself a spool (direct coupling) and one-way for your kit.
The spool is a solid differential and is a lot better than tighten (or locking) your rear diffs.
If none is available, tighten/locking would be your only choice. But be warned, it was put a lot of stress on the differential. Plastic parts would be the first to give in.

The FDR (or Final Drive Ratio) refers to the gears being used.
You'll have to adjust your FDR to properly suit the motor you are using.
A 7-7.5 FDR might be commonly used, but it still depends on the motor.
I'm using a 3.5t brushless motor and my FDR is over 10.
For now, stick to the gears that came with your kit.

Once you grow in the hobby, then you can start experimenting with this and that.

Goodluck sir and hope you enjoy drifting. =D
