Default GXP Venom Drifting

Ok, he didn't actually drift. At our little mini-meet when I met John last Saturday, I made a quick video of him trying to drift in the parking lot. There was an RX-7 in his way so he could not gain enough speed though.

The video quality stinks, sorry.

He probably hit the suspension control on purpose...

hehehe..... It was fun. It'* More fun when the rear breaks traction. And ya I hit the rear switch to raise it all the way after I wasnt happy with the way I came around the side of building. Treads still good And I am getting use to the torque steering. It definatley has a mind of it'* own.

We do this all the time, Dreamakers 'lights and sound" man'* Dad owns the whole complex so all Smokey can do is watch and "bear" it.
