Best RC Drifter, OUT OF THE BOX !!!
« on: 09 September 2009, 01:53:40 PM »
Cummon everyone, get voting and help me out.

What is the best drifter straight out of the box. I Have got a HPI E10 and not sure wether its worth upgrading to a better drifter or if there is a better drifter straight out of the box???????

Well i'm going to be honest, when i read 'Best RC Drifter' i thought you'd got a picture of me :P ;D

Depends how much your looking to spend, as at the time i could say a Hpi Pro-D or an Xray T2'009.. Which are VERY expensive chassis.

Also you say 'straight out of the box' do you mean ready built? if so there isn't much to say that is such the 'best rc drifter' either way, get a TA05, perfect step up from a Hpi E10 O0

thundertiger sparrowhawk dx is verry good straight from the box, just swap the diffs front to rear as it comes with a locked diff in the front

Right, My options are really.

Buy the second hand TA05 and all kit being sold on here by gadgified,
Buy a TT-01 New from modelsport
Buy a TA-05,
Or Keep My E10 and try some upgrades on it, but i really dont want to spend loads of money on it and then figure that if i make the same upgrades on a diiferent car it would have been so much better. Whats best outta these lot.
Im guessing its the TA-05 that is the best drifter out of these??

Dont bother with the TT-01 it won't be much better than the E10.
The TA05 off Gadgified is the best choice on your list tbh.
