Help!

Ackerman setup on HSP drift car


Hello guys!

I need help/advice on how to setup ackerman on my HSP drift car. The rc car begin it's life as brontosaurus monster truck & then I converted it to on road rc drifter with proper parts. The rear diff already locked with hot glue. Right now I'm converting it again to RWD. I read ackerman is important. Am I correct to say that I need the toe link in an angle shape for proper ackerman setup can be achieved?

Thanks.

Well, not many people convert HSP to RWD these days because it takes more effort than getting a ground up RWD car like MST FXX-D, RMS etc.

I don't know much about this car but ackerman really is important. You'll need more than that to get RWD drift though. Basically you'll have to reinvent the whole front end to have near parallel steering to be able to drift.

Thanks. This is more like long term project for me. I'll try mod the steering to get it to near parallel. I already modified the c-hubs/caster blocks to allow more steering angle.

Try many mounting positions so that when the wheels are straight you have a bit of toe out then when you go full lock it's near parallel. But again, this depends on your track and driving style.
