RC Drift Car Guide

Radio controlled drift cars are rising in popularity. Let's take a look at the best models from Tamiya, HPI and Yokomo.

Tamiya Drift Cars

If you want to get started, the cheapest is the 1/10 TT01-D chassis. And you can choose from beautiful rc drift bodies such as the Datsun 240Z, Nissan Skyline GT-R, Lexus GS400, Subaru Impreza WRC 05 and the BMW M3 E30 Sport Evo.

Then later you can buy high-end rc drift chassis designed for competition. These have more tuning capabilities. Take your pick of belt design (Tamiya TA05 VDF) or shaft (Tamiya TB03D and TB03 VDS).

HPI Racing R/C Drift Cars

Another popular brand is HPI Racing. To my knowledge they and Yokomo are the only companies that sold a nitro rc drift car.

Their cheapest models are the 1/10 E10 and 1/10 Sprint 2 Drift chassis. The E10 has a Mazda RX-7 or Toyota Trueno AE86 body. The Sprint 2 Drift has a Chevy 2010 Camaro or Nissan 350Z body.
