Drift Itch – Scale Drift Tracks

I think that the one thing that has grabbed and held me with RC drifting is the scale aspect of it. More and more you see scale drifters decked out with intercoolers, mirrors, wipers, lights, and it doesn’t stop with the cars.

In the latest LV Home Insurance Commercial from our friends across the pond, a young boy has set up quite the RC drift track in hit house. Around furniture, the family dog, and even up onto the dinning room table. (I still can’t get away with that!) We love any time a company uses an RC vehicle in their commercials as [...]

For added realism HPI’s new Discount Tire Nitro RS4 Nissan S13 RTR uses a nitro power plant, giving you the sound and smell of a tire burning drift car.
