In the UK drift rc cars were first seen around 2005. The first rc drift cars was a touring car with a drift car body shell and paint scheme.  Full scale drifting originates from Japan and the art of drifting is all about getting your car sideways and using the power of the rear wheels to drive the car whilst being sideways.  Sounds easy! There is a lot of skill required to do this correctly and a real drift car is 500+Bhp to achieve this.

In rc drift the principle is the same but to aid the rc drift car to break traction we use hard plastic tyres that constantly wheel spin but still give grip.  Throughout the country there are many rc drift clubs.  Different clubs run on different surfaces with most of them selecting carpet to be the surface of choice.

RC drift car come in two different chassis forms and these are RWD (rear wheel drive) and CS (counter steer or all wheel drive). In 2017 the majority of RC Drifting enthusiasts switched to RWD cars.  The design of the newly released chassis kits like the Yokomo YD2 made the setting up of the car easier.

RWD cars are tricky to control and require a gyro to be fitted to help you catch the car from spinning around. A true CS drift car can change the way the power is delivered to the front and back wheels by altering the gearing.  The higher the CS the more the back wheels will spin compared to the front wheels.  Another major advantage to a drift car is the amount of steering lock these models have which is needed to catch the car from spinning out.
