gone on the hpi japanese website to check what they had there and what i saw was a micro rs4 drift. 2 bodies: rx-7 and trueno. these drifters have a special part called the d-box. it will automatically counter-steer for you. heres the url: http://www.hpiracing.co.jp/index2.html

Just a heads up, the DBox is a $150 piezo electric gyro from my understanding. You can get cheaper models designed for heli/plane use starting at $35-40. Needs to be installed with the proper orientation etc. but pretty much the same thing with a fatter price tag.

Thanks alot, another one I want. However, wouldn't that make it to easy? Isn't part of the fun of drifting is being able to control it yourselfe?

That's what I was thinking but I didn't want to be the one to speak up :p

At least it's better than those cheap Toys R Us Tyco RC drifters! Anybody played with those? I wonder if their worth the price. Might be cool to add to a collection.
