Buying a 1/10 Drift RC Car
A ready-to-run 1/10-scale drift RC car is a great option for those who don’t like to do it yourself. These cars come complete with all the parts and are ready to go straight out of the box. The trick is to know where the parts go and how everything works.
A kit with an HPI 180-size motor, optional hop-up upgrades and a starter kit might be a good choice. The kit also comes with a 6-volt rechargeable battery and a charger for the controller. One of the most notable features is the low center of gravity of this car, which means that you can drive it in all kinds of terrain.
This remote-control drift car has a 2.4GHz radio system and four-wheel drive for maximum performance during drifting. It also includes anti-skid tires for on-road drifting and a durable PC material car shell that will not crack or break. The battery can also be charged for up to 30 minutes. It also comes with a metal chassis that protects the car from impacts and prolongs its service life.
Pan-type chassis are the most common type of RC drift car. They are usually made from aluminum or a combination material such as carbon fibre. This chassis allows for higher speeds and is more rigid than a tub chassis. The pan type chassis also often has a second plate that’s attached about half an inch above the main chassis. This second plate also helps the car maintain its shape while drifting.
The CS ratio (or counter-steer) is also an important factor. Lower CS ratios reduce the torque needed to turn the front wheels while higher CS ratios help a car skid. RC drift cars tend to have low CS ratios, which make them difficult to drive and more dangerous.
The ESP Electronic Stability Program (ESP), is designed to protect your car from accidents. It also provides over-current and overcharge protections. It is compatible with most RC controllers and lasts approximately 20 minutes. It also has interchangeable tires so you can change them as needed.
The HSP FlyingFish is a good value drift car. It’s a good choice if you’re on a tight budget or just want to try out RC drifting. It boasts a powerful motor that can reach speeds up to 35 km/h straight out of the box. There is also a brushless version that can go as high as 60km/h.
