What makes a good drift tire?
Ultra-High-Performance Tires are the Best Choice for Drifting on Street and Track. The stiffer sidewall is much more durable, while the sticky compound gives better control while drifting. Ultra-high-performance tires are an excellent choice for drifting on the track, even for some regular drifters.
Are drift tires hard or soft?
The best drifting tires typically feature shallow and almost bald tread patterns, with wide grooves, strong midribs, and hard vulcanized rubber that lends strength and durability.
Is drifting bad for your car?
In drifting it’s not uncommon to break parts, and also cause potential failures in parts like like axles, and drivetrain components. High rpm and abuse accelerates wear on the transmission, engine, and other various components throughout the car (brakes, tires. Etc). Excessive wear of tires and brakes (mostly tires).
Does drifting destroy tires?
The wear and tear of drifting can lead to a drastic difference between the front and back tyres. It has some major impacts on the rear wheels and can destroy them in a day so the usage of good expensive racing tyres should be in the front sets where has that tougher compounded that should be used in the rear.
How do you remove a drift RC tire?
A: Heat up the rim and tire in a bowl of hot water. The hot water will soften the plastics and allow the tire to expand and slide off the rim easer. B: Use a heat gun to heat up the rim and tire to remove it.
Are wider tires better for drifting?
Drifters need wider and lower-profile tyres because more width means better grip while a lower wheel requires less car force to spin it. However, you should make a decision based on what you need: a smaller tyre is better for acceleration but worse for the top speed, and vice versa with a taller tyre.

You can certainly reglue either a section of the RC tire or the entire thing. You will want to make sure to remove the old glue and properly clean the tire before regluing it. ALWAYS remove any leftover adhesive and get the tire and rim as clean as possible before gluing.
How do you get water out of RC tires?
Cut two small holes (3mm or 1/8” diameter) in each tire. Each hole should be near the tire center-line, 180° apart. Drain the tires by spinning the tires at high speed to “sling” the water out. One way to do this is to make several high-speed passes on a flat, dry surface, if possible.
