Posted April 23, 2013 by admin in RC News

Get these RC Drift cars at: – Three HUGE Drift Cars – Version 2 of the Mad Drift Electric Brushless Racing Edition RTR Drift cars – ARE Super Fun to fool around with! This is out first time unboxing these and seeing them up close int he studio. Everett was in the neighbourhood, and stopped in. A GREAT Time to unbox and check these rigs up close! JEM Got a RED one, I got a Blue one, and Everett got the Sweet Neon Green. This is JEM & Everetts first time with a Drift car – and it really gives you an up close look at how it is to drift with these cars – if you have NEVER HAD EXPERIENCE with it!

These rigs are fairly inexpensive, and are a cool looking product! its hard to judge the size of these big rigs while on camera .. but I hope it gives you a different view of “Learning how to Drift!” There are SO MANY OPTiONS to Try out :~)

Enjoy my friends, and hope you enjoy this RC ADVENTURE!

Here are some Specs from the NitroRCX website:

Exceed RC has raised the stakes by releasing their 1/8 scale platform on road car. The result is the MadDrift Brushless Drift Car. Ready to hit the streets right out of the box, the MadDrift Brushless Drift Car packs a long list of features and flaunts a distinctive look that will leave the competition in the dust.

This car is loaded full of features. Power is delivered through a high performance 540L 2150KV brushless motor and supported by an 80A Brushless Hobbywing electronic speed control. Enough power to deliver tire-shredding torque and reach the high RPMs needed for high-speed drifting. The 2.4ghz Radio system keeps the driver in full control. The Racing edition features all the parts in the limited edition but also includes Big Bore threaded aluminum shock bodies and front and rear aluminum differential and control arm braces for even more control. Oiled filled shocks and the included sway bars keep the car in control during hard cornering. The ESC is mounted right in the center of the car and the two batteries on either side of it to create the best possible balance and weight ratio for superb handling. All the features of this car scream performance in a ready to run package.
