It is a simple and light car. It is powered by 1 XL motor for driving and a M motor for steering. Car slides easily on curves.

Although the RC motors turn at a faster Revolutions Per Minute (RPM) than the Power Functions XL motor (1300 rpm vx. 220 rpm), you have already achieved the "drifter" car setup with your existing smooth wheels.  The 8376 Hot Flame RC car (which is also a "drifter"; http://peeron.com/inv/sets/8376-1) has SMOOTH 44777 wheels: http://www.bricklink...tem.asp?P=44777 .

Thank you all for good ideas!  :classic:

What transmission do you use - 1:X? Does it have a differential (what is its type)?

Direct output from the faster, closer axle. One motor per wheel   :laugh:

Are the 2 motors working together all the time? I mean is it a real drift?

P.S. I have ordered 44777 wheels, so I will test it when I receive them.

I have bought them separately from Bricklink. I don't have the complete set, I have just the tires.  :classic:
