I have been seeing lots of drift and drift tuning related posts lately so I figured i should share this link with you guys. Over on the FM4 forums is APX Walker's Tuning Guide *For Drifting Competitions*. I have been using this for a while to help get base setups on my drift cars and it works great. There are a couple of formulas to get used to using, but after you build a few cars it becomes very easy. Hope this helps those looking for answers Very Happy

Thanks for the help! Now i will finally be able to create my own tunes instead of buying those rediculously unstable drift tunes in the storefront!

Ive used this tuning guide for all of my drift tunes...I just need to figure out how Front and Rear Camber/Toe affect my drifting and I'll be good to go...hopefully.

i found that 4 degrees of front toe out combined with full negative front camber/1 degree neg rear camber enabled me to hold my drifts for longer,any tips any of you guys can offer would be helpful as im no tuning expert but it seemed to help me improve a bit

bumping this because I'm assuming some of us might want to put a drift tune on the rx7 spirit R from the last bounty hunter

i've found that when it comes to drifting knowing the rite amount of throttle control and knowing when and how much to counter steer is a big factor the most i'l do for my drift cars as far as a tune is if im pushing through a corner i'l lower my front tire pressure a little to help it grip but, if anyone would like to do a drift session i'd be more then happy to give out some pointers, im no expert at it but i'll give it my best shot to help Very Happy
