Question of The Month – December 2011

The question for December is: What do you want to see more on Drift Mission? November question of the month was: What RC Drift chassis manufacturer do you prefer? This month we had the greatest voting turnout at 358 people, thank you to all that voted! The winner of Novembers question of the month is Tamiya, second is Yokomo, third is Street Jam. Read more in the full article.

Tamiya clearly shows their domination on RC Drift Chassis market with over 30% of votes. This is not surprising since Tamiya has always been strong in the market with their popular TA-05 VDF chassis and international product availability. Yokomo edged into second place with 18% of total votes, this shows Yokomos presence in the market however due to limited product availability worldwide, they seem to be losing market share to Tamiya. Street Jam/Kazama came in third with 17% of total votes. We believe that this is largely due to the flood of the TEH-R31 clone chassis onto the market that gave them an advantage in the polls. The most surprising result was HPI/HB coming in 4th, we expected a higher voter turnout but they only took 10% of total votes. HPI appears to have a good presence in the market, so their low result is slightly unexpected. It is not a surprise that ARD/D-Like/RC-Art are lower on the scale, due to limited availability of products outside of Japan and Asian markets. This may change as Alex Racing Design has recently expanded their web-store to international customers. MST/Spice are new to the market this year so it is encouraging to see the market responding to them, given another year we believe that they would be higher up in the results.

  1. There are good chassis manufacturer you guys didn’t include, like enRoute. Their JXR003 drift chassis is pretty good and also the infamous Top End Hobby (TEH) <- King of clone chassis.

    1. You are right, we did forget about enRoute, next time we will be sure to have them included. We neglected Top End Hobby because they are a clone manufacturer, we wanted to credit the actual manufacturer for the company that designed the chassis. They will be considered next time as they have more and more products these days.
