Two months into 2023, we’ve got two new releases from Redcat. Things are looking up! The Arizona-based R/C brand is turning its attention back to the pavement with the release of the RDS Competition Spec Drift Car.
The RDS is a rear-wheel-drive drift car with a brushless motor, a high-speed steering servo, and an onboard gyro for improved handling. The body is sleek and modern, using a design cooked up by the Redcat’s engineers. Two body colors are available (gray and orange), each with its own decals for immediate, out-of-the-box customization.
Underneath the body, which is attached by magnets, the RDS chassis is set up for tuning. Camber, caster, Ackerman, toe, and roll center can all be dialed-in to suit your driving style.
The chassis blends carbon fiber elements with other plastic components to create a lightweight and agile platform. Whether you’re new to R/C drifting or have been slinging it sideways for years, chances are good that you’ll like this release.
