Hi Admin, even though I am new to RC drifting, I am not new to drifting 1:1's. That is why when I took up RC drifting, Counter-steer was the only way to go in terms of realism. Unfortunately it is difficult to find good resources on counter-steer setups, so I was hoping that I could join this CS only forum and learn and share my experiences.

Cheers,

Mark

Hello Admin, I was referred to this forum by my friend, Mark, who posted before me.
I am very excited to find an RC drift forum dedicated to only Countersteering.
I'm active in 1:1 drifting since 2003 and had known about RC Drifting since long time ago.
I finally decided to get one when I found out that countersteering is possible in the RC Drifting World.
My TA05-IFS was overdrived to 75% (2 weeks after I bought it) and I am starting to get the hang of it.
I hope I can learn about RC CS tuning through this forum.

Here's a video of me practicing Countersteering with my TA05:

Sorry Randy you posted up your information before I added those fields.

It's going to take a bit before we figure out how we are going to do registeration. The website just went up a week ago so we are still figuring things out. I'm sure things will be sorted by tonight.

Mike, yeah go ahead and post it on your blog. I want to see if it will put your post in the RSS Feeds. I dont think it's posting your feeds on the forum for some reason.

Hey guys!! :wave: :wave:

So glad this forum is up and running, looks great! I'm very happy to have a new place to call "home" finally! |O| |O| |O| |O|

As most of you know me, I am the founder of V95 R/C Drift Team here in the Northeast (NJ/NY) Area and was a "Mod" on GroovyDrift for the East Coast Section for the last couple of years. Our team has been the pioneers of RC Drifing in the Northeast and have been consistently doing it for almost 5 years. We have been to every FD & D1 event that has happened near us in all those years. Our team has been the "go-to" guys for FD to set up RC Drift Demos for the last 4 years...for D1GP we've participated the 2 times they came out to NJ

Aside from difting events, we do drift demos at Car Shows, Charity events, hold local meets and occassionally have "Comps" too.

Hopefully we can continue growing in the hobby and push CS to the next level too! If there is anything any of us out here in New Jersey and V95 Team can do to help around on the forum, please don't hesitate to ask!

Here is my basic info:

WooOOooo! The one main reason why i loved the counter steer was because it is growth.
I like to grow and learn more in everything that i do, thus why i got really bored really quickly of other forums
where counter steer is hardly ever talked about and is abit outcasted in a way.

Here in Sydney Australia ive had my fair share run in spreading the word of rc drift. Ive helped organize some
rc drift demos at a few car show events as well as holding some local casual bash meets and gathering as many
new people as I could. Sadly though with the lack of support in Sydney, we get our moments of Highs and Lows
so after every big major car show event we do for example, we will get an epic low afterwards where everyone is
left drifted out.. In worst cases we lose alot of major players in this period to other hobbys and other factors of life
like work and other commitments.

WELL! thanks to counter steer i think it has helped some of those people who are drifted out, abit of a new spark
to try something new and to get back into it.
I am trying my best to spread the word and talk as much as i can about counter steer but since i am still practicing
and tweaking my setup people are still 50/50 since they cant see mine dishing it out as nice as Dlike and team arai.
So thats something i gotta work on if i wanna help get rid of this drought of drift that we currently have around here.

So hopefully this forum can help me achieve that..i think that the more knowledge i get and learn from this forum the
more confident i can be with my counter steer and then i can bring the dying drift in Sydney back to life!

Watched your blog almost weekly last 3 month. Noticed your latest version on your driftmaster looks very similar. Wondering what you use to fix the top of the steering posts. That blue part.

Just did the registration.

Hi !

Name : Cédric
Age : 17
Location : France
Years Drifting : 2-3
Counter-Steer Chassis : TAMIYA TB-03 IFS-FSC

I discover this forum by the sil40sx's blog. ;)
I have a TAMIYA TB-03 since 1 year and upgraded it just with the necessary. Recently I have made a Front Servo Conversion then I will post photos (when they was made) on forums, and as soon as I have sold one of my body, I upgrade my chassis and buy the FCD kit 1.5 for YOKOMO. At this time I have 1,17:1 overdrive, not a lot but for the moment I can't more.
Thanks to the FSC, I have 48° steering angle, 0° ackerman and a better weight repartition. :up:
My car was in setup why I haven't training between 2 month and the last session was verry bad :cry:



Bye ! :)

Counter Steer Chassis: Hot Bodies Cyclone Surikarn Edition


I know im kinda late joining this forum. Been atempting to c/s my cyclone for the last 6months now. Its a joy and its also a challenge. Its also so much fun I can barely go back to driving a regular r/c drif car. So far still trying to find 90%+ full counter steer lock. Right now im only acheiving 60-75% counter-steer lock. My chassis is only 1.5 rear overdrive, I dont think i'll over drive the rear anymore. But, more likely to underdrive the front. Anyways when Im not working on the real cars. Im at Arai getting my c/s drift on!

Hello, everyone! Im Hyren from Team Touge Knights. Been on the c/s r/c drift for about 6months. Im still on the learning curve of being more consistant, but it never ends due to constant change in setup. Hopefully i'll find the right tune and just drift in true scale form but as good as i did with regular r/c drifting.

hi there, ive read about this CS forum at Sil40sx blog.
I am driving my BDM CS mod. since last year June and had a lot of good info from Katsumi's posts and GD's setup.
My CS chassis is finished modding for now and drives great but i am looking for some better tips and tricks to fine tune my Chassis.
I have 2 options of countersteer setups> a 62% overdrive version and a 87% overdrive version. Just by changing the Centeraxl with other pulleys
In Holland there aren't a lot of people who are running with a CS chassis, but a few people (like Speedfreak |O| ) are also trying to use CS or build a CS chassis ! :up:

greetings,

J.

Hi all...

nickname: roosterfella46
location: east java - indonesia
years drifting: 2 years
drift chassis: HPI RS4 Pro3

Hi all...
i'm Youngki from indonesia...
been doing R/C since 2001 but really started R/C drifting in 2007, so far i can only do the "olskool" 50/50 R/C Drift.. :oops:
that's partially because i've no access to a C/S Drift parts for my old drift chassis..
i am eager to do a C/S Drift mods to my old but reliable Pro3..
reasons for not upgrading to a newer chassis is because:
1. Short on Cash :oops:
2. I have 2.. yes 2 fully assembled HPI RS4 Pro3 kits with more than enough parts bags to back it up.. :roll:

C/S R/C drift is the new hottest trend in R/C drifting...
from what i see it'll make R/C drifting more challenging..
because i feel it's started to get boring doing the 50/50 style.. :down:
through this forum i am hoping i can learn some more bits n pieces on C/S Drifting and how to do a C/S mod to my old Pro3
cheers...
