Cool, my friend tries to drift but he is no where near as good as you. There is a track up in the bronx, and he tries to drift there, but the hard plastic tires ends up picking up all the rubber left behind and they ended up not sliding anymore.

Thank you for the compliment, I have a lot to learn to drift in Japan. I find that when I drift I need to remember its not about the speed its about the drift. When I try and go to fast I lose control. And yeah the surface makes a difference I drift on cardboard.

I practice lots of Figure 8's haha because I don't have a track and I try and watch my "trigger" drifting requires controlled burst of power to control the drift. Not a lot of full power. But everyone has there own style.

I am wondering if your friend goes to Hobby Hero? :D


Thanks for watching my video hope you can like and subscribe :D Thanks again for you passion for Mini R/C..!

Nice drift video and great start!
Wonder what is CS setup you talking about? MS racing axle and spurs?
In description there is no any mention about gyro-unit that have been installed on your chassis ;)
Did you see this channel https://youtu.be/V1iXQv-hED0? Videos not so old. As far as I understand the only setup in his chassis is front oneway.
Another mini-z drift channel: https://youtu.be/1IObi7XZDuY There is also CS setup. But it's handmade. In comments there is link on forum (in German).
As for your vids: it's interesting to know about your setups and about drift technique (how to drift).
Waiting for next video. Peace.

Nice videos! Very good walk through and explanation of what you were doing with your upgrades.

Ive never been much of a show drifter, but have done plenty with rubber tires on RCP or Carpet in races :D Of course, thats a different style altogether. I have tried drifting a few times, but never really got the hang of it. You are good at it for just starting, keep up the work.

Thank you, for watching and positive feedback. I need to practice a lot more to drift in Japan. But regardless I love my MiniZ and drifting doesn't need lots of space just wish I had a cool track. Please don't for get to like and sub to the channel , I will try and add new videos of my progress every week.

Thank you again for your passion for MiniZ r/c..!
