RC Drift Cars - How to get into RC Drifting

RC Drifting - Radio Control Drift Cares


Getting into RC drifting is simple. But, refining your skills is a different story. As with anything, mastering your RC drift car may take a little while, but the process is so rewarding. Learning to drift is easier than ever, with so many radio control manufacturers entering the arena. MST is one of the earliest drift brands to throw their hat in, and boy, have they mastered the RTR drift car—below is our “Learning to Drift” series. Follow along as Brett upgrades his stock MST RMX 2.0 to become a fierce RC drifting machine.

 Learning to Drift Series - Featuring the MST RMX 2.0

Learning to Drift Series - Part 1 - Upgrading a RTR Drifter

#1 - Upgrading a RTR Drifter

It’s time to do some drifting, and we’ve got a brand-new MST drifter to upgrade as part of our “Learning How to Drift” build series. So naturally, we wanted to see the most comfortable and consistent drifter we could make. But can you do that with a ready-to-run drifter? Well, we think we so.

Learning to Drift Series - Part 2 - Hitting the Tracks

#2 - Hitting the Tracks

It’s part two of our drifter build series featuring the ready-to-run RMX 2.0 brushless drift car. We finished giving the car a shakedown, testing the stock tires, and how different battery weights affect the drifting experience. But, we had more testing to do, including finding the best tires so that we could hit the track for the first time.

Learning to Drift Series - Part 3 - Relocating Weight for Performance

#3 - Relocating Weight & Drift Night

We are back with part three of our drifter build series featuring the MST RMX 2.0 RTR drift car. Our local hobby shop had a Drift Night, and we prepped the car for its first show. But first, we were curious what happens if you move the ESC to the back of the car, or what happens if you move the motor to raise the center of gravity?

Learning to Drift Series - Part 4 - Building a Drift Body

#4 - Building a Drift Body


We’re back with part four of our Learning to Drift Series. And it's all about creating a custom look and style for our MST RMX 2.0 RC drift car. We bought a brand-new Killerbody Nissan Skyline R31 body, grabbed a bag full of accessories—then it was time to start building!


In the previous articles, Brett upgraded the style of his MST RMX 2.0 RC drift car using a Nisan Skyline R31 body from Killerbodies RC. In this article, we show you even more great RC drift bodies.
