The RC drifting noob finished the the Sakura D4 RWD chassis rolling kit build last week. It probably took me about a total of 8 hours (accumulated) to get almost all of the parts assembled for the rolling kit. It probably is too slow for you guys out there, but hey, this is my first scale RC, ever! Cut me some slack.
Back to the build, there were 9 labeled bags, and another one for the tools inside the Sakura D4 RWD box. The bags are labeled clearly and corresponds with the each of the components or sections that will be built. For example, bag 1 is for building the main chassis frame, and the lower suspension arms.
Here’s a short clip of a solo run on Ebisu’s D1GP section. This also served as a test for a new smoke add-on. I got it from the TougeLife mod by Ryan Smith. You can grab his mod at their TougeLife site.
I didn’t really like the previous smoke add-ons I’ve used in the past, basically because it gave me a hard time seeing the car in front, and they were practically just all white. But the smoke add-ons that came with the TougeLife mod has textures that makes it look better, and more realistic.
Enjoy the short rFactor drift clip below. Let me know what you think.
Had fun drifting the BMW M3 E46 made by Rasta Drifter. This isn’t an official release yet, and haven’t asked for permission from Rasta to add a download link for this rFactor drift mod, so just feast your eyes on this beauty. We have the opportunity to get this baby sideways because we’re both members of the Facebook group, JDMFactor.
Definitely needs a lot of upgrades for the rims. I’m all good as to how it looks, and honestly don’t want to have any weird looking body kits on it. In terms of Force Feedback, it feels great with my Logitech G27, with Realfeel plugin installed.
rFactor drift session on a publicly available server named P-Server. Been away from the online drifting scene for a while, so please forgive the crappy drifting and shallow angle, at some points.
As usual, some good tandem drift runs with Esteed at the Yokohoma Docks. There’s more from where this came from, and better. This is raw footage, no editing involved, just using default camera angles provided by the track.
This is just a preview of some of the action that happens in the rfactor online drifting scene.
