I bought a pair of wheels that just barely fit inside a piece of 3in PVC pipe and then just wrapped a bit of duct tape around the rims to get a snug fit inside the PVC pipe and just used that. worked fine and when the PVC wears out its replaceable since you didnt glue anything.

Ok cool. I will give that a try. Crazy that nobody makes 17mm 1/8 scale drift tires and wheels except exceed rc. I shall make my own out of a old set of revo wheels I had laying around that's 17mm.

I know right!! These companies should know that people love putting drift tires on just about everything occasionally even if its just for a goof. Seems like theyre missing out on some money there. :)

I will video my summit drifting across the parking lot as soon as I get it all set up. I'm headed out of town in the AM for work so I will try to get it all set up by the end of this weekend. I'm buying the Vaterra for my drift car but I thought it would be fun to drift my summit and maybe even my revo in a open parking lot.
