These days the RC drifting has become a latest trend among the RC car enthusiasts. This trend basically started off in Japan but within no time it has become immensely popular all around the globe. The fun of watching RC drifting is something which hard core enthusiasts would love to die for.
Some of the most commonly used & basic RC car drifting techniques which are used for the RC drifting races are as follows:
The first in the list is “power over” RC drifting technique. It is one of the most popular one among the racers. In this type of RC car drifting, the complete throttle is used in order to produce over steering of significant magnitude through the turn.
Second is the “faint drift” technique in which you are required to steer the car outwards of the track and then you need to suddenly turn the head of the car in inward direction by using steering traction.
Third in the list is the ‘swaying drift”, in this technique you are basically required to replicate faint drift in short slow bursts where the rear of the car keeps oscillating about the longitudinal direction giving a swaying view of the car rear.
Fourthly, the ‘kansei drift’ technique is normally utilized for high racing speeds. In general when you are close to corners at high speed for a moment reduce supply of gas. It will cause a little over steering in the car and hence you need to balance it by adjusting the steering and gas.
The “jump drift” is done by allowing one of the tires to lose contact with the track. In this technique the inside tire at the rear end bounces to lose contact with the track and in the process generates over steer.
Last but not the least is the “long side drift” which is a commonly used drifting technique. In this kind of drifting the reverse and steering is used to put the car sideways. The car enters into the turn in this position.
