Losing grip – getting up to speed

Anyone who has ever driven an RC car, is probably familiar with the most common question from casual observers: “How fast is it?” I suspect this is one of the main reasons why high speed runs have gotten so popular recently  – it must be pretty cool to be able to answer that “Well, today I’ve only hit 106 mph, [...]

Losing grip – in the mortal realms

Last week this column had the pleasure of grazing the pastures of drift heaven, being amazed by the divine skills of Vivian Grobler as manifested in his beautiful BMW M3. This week, we are back in the realms of mortal men, with me standing as prime example of one of their kind. Not that you will see any pictures of [...]

Losing Grip – Drift Package

I currently have the privilege of a couple of days off from work – sadly a far too unusual occurence – and have taken the opportunity to go for a trip to the beach. Swimming, having coffee overlooking the ocean, and drifting in the basement carpark. Neither much sun nor any good views down there, but an excellent flat, smooth, [...]

Losing grip – this is what you want

In his latest ramblings, Cubby wrote that I was hardcore about drifting, and he was right about that. I am however not the archetypical hardcore drifter, since that particular stereotype would require an indoor drift track and a fancy, transmitter with custom bling. Mind now that I certainly would love to step into that person’s shoes, but sadly the closest [...]

Losing Grip – No guts of steel

After recently having built an Axial Bomber, it was in many ways a liberating experience to build a drift kit. My bomber was heavily upgraded from the start, with lots of aluminum, stainless steel, M4 hardware, massive power – the works. I looked at every single piece of it and considered whether it was likely to endure the (ab)use I [...]

Loosing Grip – Getting Dressed

When I bought my first drift car, a MST RMX 2.0 kit, I spent a lot of time thinking about what body to dress it with. After all, the body is what you are going to rest your eyes on when you drive it. No matter how fancy and blinged up the guts of the car might be, the body [...]

Loosing Grip – Big Squid RC Goes Sideways

What happens when a crawler guy takes a wrong turn? He gets into rc drifting! I like to believe that the first time anyone sees a car drift a corner, one will ask oneself ”Why is the driver turning in the wrong direction?” For it is a weird thing, seeing a car moving sideways around a bend with the wheels turned [...]

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. The tracks some of these clubs are constructing to drift on are beyond real. Rumble strips, guard rails, [...]

Lexus RC Drift Video

Recently we posted information about the Team Associated Lexus RC F, and today we see a video collaboration between Lexus and drift guru Drift44. It’s a nice video with serious drift precision shots. I’m sure the outtake video will probably follow shortly showing the dozens of attempts to get it all right, but it’s still cool. Check it out below.
