Every day this week I will be posting a part of the ‘Pro Tips with Jilles Groskamp’ series RedRC has done a couple of years ago. Groskamp is a Dutch RC touringcar driver for Tamiya. He has won many titles over the years and is seen as one of the best drivers in the world.
You might be thinking, these are tips for racing, what is it doing on a drift website? Well, most of the setup is the same on both racing and drifting cars. These video’s have some very usefull tips on maintenance and setup. I’ve watched them all multiple times and learned a lot from them, and I advise you to watch them too.
In part 1 Groskamp talks you through maintaining and setting up the shocks. The shocks are offcourse one of the most important components on any RC drift car, and its good to know what you’re doing next time you’re rebuilding your car.
