This car can simply be described as not ideal for beginners. It needs an expert drift RC driver to handle. It’s a real beast! It is difficult to find a proper competitor for this one, even among all the best rc cars.

The car is made up of advanced technology that may not be suitable for just anyone who wants to try it for the first time. In addition, it has comes at a price that may make you think twice before giving it someone to ‘try it out’. Although it’s not a budget breaker, the car fits under the $300 threshold. This should not just be ignored.

With its powerful motor and state of the art electronics, the car has a chassis that is designed for drifting and supports it effectively. The brand new and upgraded 2.4GHz Automatic Frequency Hopping System can easily keep up a constant direct connection with the car and tune out any interferences that may be facing it. This is really great in case you are racing against other racers because each and every car on that track comes with its own radio system.

To add to this, the chassis is fully adjustable, and the special drift tires assist in holding those extreme drift angles that occur while creating a spectacular experience. To make it better, the upper and lower plates of the chassis are made of carbon fiber and this keeps the entire body as lightweight as possible.

The shock system is one to marvel at because it is well developed to reduce any chances of damage due to collisions and bumps. For example, the oil filled shock absorbers and the cut pistons do a great job in keeping the car level at an optimal angle when drifting on rough terrain.

I have observed many cars and the X10DR Pro Drift Car is among the best drifting vehicles in the world. I can highly recommend it to professional drifters due to the high speeds of this car. The car is not suitable for people who are not used to controlling a drift car because losing control is so easy with this one.

It may be a bit hard to find the right track for your car locally. The car is a fast one and comes with drifting tires. In case you don’t find a great track and you want to drive it on asphalt, make it a point to buy new tires that are eligible for the road. This is because the drifting ones may run out very fast.

When you open a new one, you will come across a provided battery and transmitter. However, you will need to buy batteries for the charger and a charger for the Li-Po battery.

Advantages

  • Advanced driving technology.
  • Designed for drifting.
  • Beautiful body.
  • Incredible speeds.

Disadvantages

  • It’s not ideal for asphalt with its stock tires.
  • It’s expensive.
  • It is too fast for normal race tracks.
