Drift Itch – Is CounterSteer Dead?

Hey gang Evol here again with some more of my musings on the ever evolving animal that is RC Drift. One my my favorite vendors (BlackStar Hobbies) posted up a thought for discussion on FaceBook regarding what could be the demise of Countersteer and that really got me thinking about the future of RC Drift. It’s funny how quickly things [...]



Team Yokomo – YG-301 Gyro for RWD drift cars

Yokomo has finally started to release some products aimed at the RWD drifter. Not a heck of a lot of details but the fact that they acknowledge RWD exists is something right?

Drift Itch – RWD drifting – Is it here to stay?

Is RWD drifting here to stay? If the industry is any indication it is. It seems like every RC Drift company either already has one (a rear wheel drive) or is currently working on one. The idea of it is fantastic and watching videos of them in action is very compelling, but in practice it can be very difficult. So [...]
