Inside an RC Drift Car

Ok so its time to get up close and personal with an RC Drift Car! In so many respects they’re are many similarities between the 1:1 guys and the RC brigade, its only when you get up close and personal that you can see these. Full¬†adjustable¬†suspensions, arbs, steering lock kits, oil filled shocks, carbon fibre chassis, different ratio diffs, interchangeable gearboxes…I could go on and on! I met up with the Dori Garage boys to talk tech and its really amazing the way they can set up cars for different tracks, track surfaces and driver styles etc much the same as the real thing! They’re so many variables and so many custom parts available that the skies the limit with what you can build.

    This use to be my old car. It is fantastic car. When i had it is was set up for drifting as it is a touring car chassis. a full solid year of trying to get it perfect was needed. but it was a top car and still is. All the chrome was blue and i stripped them using acid and then polished them up.

    It is looking well colin
