Question Drift Tires?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm almost done building my Sidewinder Powered TT-01 Drift Car and have found myself with a dilemma.

What kind of tires should I use?

PVC is out of the question, been there done that.

I'm looking for some advice towards Rubber Drift Tires, as my TT-01 is MS Powered I have more then enough Torque to brake traction.

I have seen the Hard Rubber Drift Tires but they really just look like glorified PVC Tires.....is there any other options "tire wise" out there for my Drifter or do the Hard Rubber Tires actually work?

Thanks in advance guy's!

actually if u get the hard rubber drift tires from tamiya it will work wonders with ur set up u wont be able to do the gear swap so u can simulate over steer ( side compensation ) but it will work for u

p.s. have u tried black 2 inch ABS pipeing?

Re: Drift Tires?

pvc style are easy to slide at low speeds, I use the Tamiya hard rubber, but it carries a little more speed due to the traction, you need to be on the power all the time to keep them broken loose. My car:

Re: Drift Tires?

Try this website. These look amazing, I am planning on trying these shortly. Very much like tires I got in HK and what is used in Japanese drifting.Also, IMO, Tamiya make some really nice drift tires, I like them better than HPI, the seem softer cuz they are partly rubber.

Re: Drift Tires?

I use PVC for my race car. with them it's easy to slide at low speeds. if you don't want that I think the Tamiya Drift tyres will be best for you.
