PostSubject: Another newbie entering the world of R/C drifting   Thu Jan 31, 2013 5:18 am

Hello fellow drifters and kababayans.

I'm from AUH but working & staying 2 hours drive away from the city. Unfortunately, nothing to do much there so I decided to try r/c drifting during my spare time. I purchased a HPI sprint 2 flux to start with and familiarize myself the basics of maintaining, tuning, replacing parts, etc before going into the next level of upgrading. I found your website in youtube so I immediately registered. Please, I need your expert tips and advise for stage 1 upgrade of this kit to start drifting. By the way, I already bought some drift tires for it...so what else do I need basically?

Since I'm not really familiar of loitering around the cities of AUH and DUBAI, I'm looking for any Pinoy technicians/owners of hobby shops whom I can deal or ask assistance whenever I go down in the city. My friends from Dubai stays at Discovery Gardens and I usually visits them during weekends. Also, that's the only time I can look for anything that I need. I will be glad also to see drifters from Abu Dhabi and check some hobby shops there if any.

Looking forward to hear great responses from you guys...MORE POWER Dubdrift!!

Thanks sir sandrock...I'll try to find time to meet you during Mondays. Transport from our site to AUH city is very difficult especially the availability of our company cars to facilitate transport during weekdays.

Where exactly is the location of that hobby shop from Salam?? Are they open during Fridays?? Please let me know.

friday drift meets are in sharjah.. mondays in AUH.. but maybe AUH boys can make an exception...
and please be informed that there is a dedicated RC drift track in sharjah.. tile surface. much smoother to drift and less harmful to our "not so cheap" kits... i just hope AUH boys could also plan on playing there with the DXB gals.....
