Thank you for supporting DRC and submitting your wonderful shells for the rest of the rc drifting community to enjoy. Without people submitting their shells, there wouldn't be a contest and the art of shell craftsmanship would not be a part of this hobby. To thank you, the DRC member, we have expanded our prizes to First, Second and Third place vote getters!!!
First Place Prize will be from Genki or Capsule2One, alternating every other month.
Second Place Prize will be from Odyssey. Every month, he will send you a set of Odyssey Garage Tires valued at $19.
Third Place Prize will be from DarkBeginning. Every month, he will give you DRC Credits to be used towards any purchase at www.rcdriftshop.com!

If you have MySpace, please add us on! If you don't, get on MySpace now and join! If you are a DRC partner and would like a banner on MySpace, please make one 320x50 banner and submit it to me. We will glady put it up to give your site added exposure.
Another new exciting addition to the RC Drift Community is the RC Drift Directory.

Popularized by such movies as Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and the well-known animation series Initial D, the once amateur sport of drift racing now has a wide audience and professional race series. Tamiya now brings you the last generation Toyota Supra (JZA80) sports car on the drift-spec TT-01D chassis. Add this beauty to your collection of rc drift shells. Check out this tutorial on how to paint shells!

Check out the new DX3R from Spektrum! It's sure to make some head turns out on the track with this new futuristic, funky form.
While DX3R’s intelligently designed ergonomics are the first thing that catches the eye, it is the superior responsiveness of its advanced 2.4GHz DSM2 technology that will get people talking. In addition to unparalleled freedom and interference protection, DSM2 has a faster response time than any other spread spectrum or PPM system. With it, you will be able to hold the “line” around a track with a level of precision and control unlike anything you have experienced before. And because DSM2 uses direct sequence spread spectrum technology, you’ll maintain this superior response rate no matter how “noisy” the 2.4GHz environment gets. Click HERE for more info.

Check out the 3Racing chassis upgrade for the Tamiya TA-05! This well balanced and drift proven chassis now has carbon fiber and blue bits to make even the Yokomo BD envious. Find out if all this bling is worth the buck or if it'll leave you singing the blues.
