    Haha I'm the guy in the black/gray sweatshirt! I've browsed DW for quite some time, I'm the states though so I mainly browse other forums. Granted this isn't an introductions forum, but here's a pic of my actual drift car:

    That look like fun. Its like the evolution of drift trike's with the plastic rear wheels and all.

    Went karting at the weekend and we were all flicking into the corners in a train but the bog down so bad... this looks amazing! Why can't karting places use plastic tyres :p

    Thanks man! The kart was tons of fun. Me and a friend bought it and put the rings on it for sliding it. We also modded the front knuckles for more angle haha.

    In regards to putting the plastic rings on the front tires, without them there was way too much front grip. The front rings were narrower than the rear and placed near the outside of the tires. In a straight line you would have a bit of grip for turn in, then once you were sideways the front would slide just the right amount.

    Pay the extra for a D-Max cart and it'll hold a decent slide:wack:
    Did you go Sandown?
