    can you turn a two wheel drive car into a drifter?

    do you need 4 wheel drive to drift? heard some guys put electrical tape on mini e-revo's was wondering if i could do this with my rustler?

    its extremely hard to drift with a rustler or any 2wd car bc there isnt much weight up front and you will just spin out.

    Hey, just try it. it wont hurt anything haha

    I would say full on drift with 2wd, I do it with my B4 regularly on low grip tracks, I can go for entire corners through the whole track, super difficult, but I guess that's more "power sliding" I don't want to start an argument, but I think power sliding is started in the while already in the turn using power or brakes, drifting being started before you get into the turn and carried through out.

    but yea, generally 2wd drifting with RCs is not very practical

    Power sliding is one slide. Drifting is linking power slides that are started using a variety of methods.

    It's impossible to drift a RWD RC well especially when they're small and light.

    You can drift Bajas a little, but I still wouldn't call it full on drifting.

    Drifting a 10th scale rc rwd is possible and can be link but it's very difficult. Basically a chassis has to be weight correctly and setup nicely. As well as the surface your drifting on has to be just right.
