Still wondering how to drift? A fantastic trick that pays homage to original RC car drifting video products made a few years ago in Japan, the real thing most drivers want to know is just how to drift! It's a complicated trick with one advantage: it gives the car the ability to take sharp, experienced corners without losing speed. The effect is to make the whole car look as if it's taking the corner completely sideways, since the wheels are turned horizontally and the body remains parallel to the straightaway. The trick takes a lot of experience, and there are four essential tips to consider when imitating those videos and learning how to drift:
Tip #1: You will need an RC drift car that has 4 wheel drive like our nitro rc drift cars or our electric rc drift cars to imitate the videos properly
Tip #2: Electric RC cars are better than nitro for those with less experience
Tip #3: Smooth tires are necessary when learning how to drift and are included with each of our rc drift cars.
Tip #4: The track must be low-friction
Four wheel drive is necessary when you are figuring out how to drift. Without this element of control, your car won't slide the way it is supposed to, and it may well flip during the experience. Learning how to drift takes time, so savour the experience. Electric RC cars won't break down while you're learning how to drift. Invest in one of these and your experience levels will match those videos soon enough.
RC car drift tires are included with each of our rc drift cars and are vital to your ability to drift.
Lastly, remember that the drifting experience only works with a low-friction track or with a high powered car (preferably nitro) that won't lose speed on a sticky surface.
