He Made drift tires out of PVC piping and mounted 'em up on some rims!!

..It's definetly fun. I can agree with that.

I bought a Tamiya TL-01 (RTR for $100) that I'm waiting for. As soon as I get it I'll use it for drifting

Its expensive but WELL worth the investment... to buy the Yokomo drift tires. I'd choose them over my pvc's anyday. The problem with PVCs wheels are they are totally smooth. Even when "broken in" they are quite slick on parking lots. But they do work quite well on carpet tracks once broken in on road surface first though. The Yokomo's just give a better balance of traction and slip.

Yea its hard on the diff's. I need to rebuild both front and rear diff's, they are really grindy.

What I found with drifting is its WAY funner when you have a course to try to stay in, sure you can do spins and tricks on a open area, but trying not to hit anything is more challenging.

If it aint yellow, it aint mine.*

*with a few exceptions.
