got the 1/10th scake 4wd buggy up and running for the track this weekend.

new chasis, new wheels and tires, new front shock tower, and rebuilt the shocks.

still need to install the waterproof reciever box i got for it, and then get rid of the hideous/poor fitting body. but those two things can wait till next week.

should also be getting my brother's old jato in the mail today, and starting the custom brushless conversion.

This is the hpi sprint 2 flux. Brushless model. 53mph with a 2s. With hpi rims and drift tires. It's a blast. More Fun when there are other vehicles.

I'd get the same one if I had to do it over again. I like having the extra power with the brushless motor. Most of the guys that I drift with have this model. I think one has the sprint 2 drift. Brushed motor and it came with drift tires. Wish they made a flux version with drift tires.. oh well... tires for this aren't bad at all.

I imagine a 4wd short course or buggy would be entertaining with a set of drift wheels/tires

This is correct. Pretty damn fun! Just learning how to link the drifts together is going to be the key.. And control.
