Midnighters 180sx

Picked up a D-Like 180sx from a friend of mine that decided not to build it and decided to make a copy of my real car, took a while to get it all done but finally got the light buckets I made to stay in place and get my wheels in from japan. http://slide-factory.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/DSC442...

Lights, Camera, Drift!

Afro’s RC has been under construction the past week but that has not stopped us from continuing to have a great time on what’s left of the old track. 4 car tandem trains is not a rare occurrence anymore at the club and this time is no different! http://slide-factory.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/DS...

Re: Got the CS kit installed...Now how do I get more drift angle

I dont have a VDF but generally the place to sart is to figure out what's your limiting factor.

For me it was my bump stops on my SPrint 2 and after removing those I got a lot more lock, then it was my CVD's that started binding
