PostSubject: hello there   Mon Nov 09, 2009 2:26 am

hi gents,
i used to be an active 1/10 nitro racer in manila from 2002-2005. racing in speedzone, mang's track in capitolyo, pinagbuhatan pasig, montalban race track and of course the popular jp race track. i miss those days smelling nitro fuel every race. now i am based in fujairah since 2006 and i wanted to go back into rc hobby. i am not sure if there are 1/10 nitro touring car racing in uae, i can see that most are into rc drifting which i am very much interested to join. i have not tried rc drifting so i wanted to ask everyone what would be a good car that you can recommend to start with and later on can also be used in racing. looking forward to meeting all of you soon and be part of the group. cheers1 smile bounce

Welcome!..not only to Dubdrift, but also to the world of non-smelly, dirty, noisy electric RC.. smile
I am sure the drifters here will offer you plenty of advice on what kit to get and have a hunt through the forums, there are already a few threads with the pro's and con's of the available cars. There are a few shops here that have taken to offering the HPI Drift ready-sets, which might make the entry into drifting a little easier...

As far as nitro goes, I reckon the Al-Ainguys with their track at the motor city will be avid nitro tourers, but Dubai is an unknown entity for the on-roaders. The Nitro buggy guys meet at Nad Al Sheba but the racing is not as organised as it used to be...

Good luck!

hello cathurga and altimeters,
thank you for the welcome smile i have read your post on the different kits to consider in drifting. i think tamiya is a good choice since they have a number of shops around in dubai for parts support. i like the term, world of non-smelly, dirty, noisy electric RC smile . though i was first introduced to nitro and i had fun racing those days. this time i want to try ep drifting since most are into it.

thanks neil. nice pix of your kit. i have one stupid newbie question, drifting has special tires right? does it consume a lot of tires since its sliding everytime. sorry since i am more familiar with foam and rubber tires :confused 😕

nope... it usually takes a few months, lets say about 8 months before the tires run out. unless you drift all the time then it'll wear out faster. and also the type of road you are drifting.
