RC Drift – August Question of The Month!

Hot on the heels of our last monthly poll to determine what is the most popular RC Drift setup. With over 31 days of voting the winner with 78% of the vote is Countersteer (CS – Counterdori).
DriftMission.com staff were surprised by the lack of votes for 50/50 as it still has it’s place in the hobby; the complete breakdown is shown below.

  • Countersteer (CS) – 78%
  • 50/50 (4WD) – 17%
  • Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) – 5%
  • This months question is to find out what is the most popular Countersteer (CS) Ratio? As usual this poll will be up for the month of August with results posted on September 1st. To all my CS, 50/50, and RWD RC drifters out there, tell your friends, tell your family, tell your pets to come out and vote!

      1. Ive only ever seen 1 person attempt it in a forum somewhere…. I think it has merit, but drift chassis trend has been front mid-motor mount; rather than rear mount for racing purposes. It can be be counter steer modded, but there is no kit for it, and I suspect there wont be a cs kit made for it either…. pretty much a full custom mod, but very possible. I suggest doing some more research into drift chassis, then make a more informed decision. Good luck

    1. I have been reading up for some time now my thinking is the TA-06 is the next generation ta-05 I see a lot of people drifting. The HPI drift cars are all rear motor mount as well. I am just not looking to spend 500 on a chaise today, I am new and need to start some place. I thought ta-o6 would be a good choice, I would love to hear your recommendations.

      1. I totally understand $500 is a big initial investment. The ta06 is indeed the next generation of the popular ta05. The ta06 differential design has been drastically changed compared to the ta05, and counter steer mods will left up to your imagination. All you need to get started drifting is a chassis (drift spec chassis or touring chassis) and some hard compound drift spec tires and you are good to go. Have you checked out your local hobby store to see what type of equipment they carry? It could be a better indicator of what you should get…. 

        1. I am in the bay area, CA same as you I think. I have been to Sheldon’s and J&R. I also went out to the last hyperdrift event to check things out.
          Seam like I see alot of ta-03 drift spc. Seams like drift tires on a ta-06 has to be better.
          I keep reading about hot bodies and yokomo but hard to find local and seams like pro level ride.
          I still need to buy the motor and electronics as well.
          Can you say Noob!
