You know, the Zip-Zap cones and barrier set are great for this purpose, and cheap, but are tough to find these days.

Here's a slo-mo clip of a reasonably good drift; I mapped out my steering and throttle movements, in case you guys would like to compare.

Since the M3 is waiting for some FETs, I've added my own small touches to Tuner1989's MR02, including the ball diff, rims and motor from the M3, and a silver motor mount to match with the clear chassis. (The M3 will be getting a handwound motor with the FETs, and *possibly* some other nice bits and pieces -- I still need someone to machine those rims I designed.)

As for the its performance, I will say this. I tested the car with 2-months-dead batteries, and it still broke traction from a standstill. I hadn't expected this kind of performance from a Nelly; ph2t makes an awesome product.

This car will be my main drifter until the M3 is back up and running; if that takes a long time, expect to see an NSX in the next video clip. :-o
