5 Traxxas RC Drift Cars That Take Corners Like a Champ

Posted by RC Superstore on 1st Dec 2022

Do you love the thrill of taking corners at high speeds, and putting on a show while doing it? If you're nodding your head then you're probably a fan of drifting. And if you also love RC cars as much as we do, then you're definitely in the right place!

Now, we know what you might be thinking, "Does Traxxas even have RC drift cars?" The answer is . . . well, sort of. While they don't yet offer an RC car that's out-of-the-box ready to drift, they do carry several models that—after slapping on some Traxxas drift tires—are more than ready to take those corners like a champ.


In this post, we'll take a look at five of Traxxas' best drifting RC cars (in no particular order). So buckle up and get ready for some exciting driving!

1. Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 Ford Mustang GT

The 4-Tec 2.0 Ford Mustang GT from Traxxas combines a classic muscle car look with modern RC tech. It's equipped with a powerful brushless motor and can easily reach speeds of up to 30+ mph, making it an excellent choice for those looking to drift in style. Plus, its wide-set rear wheels and low center of gravity mean you won't have to worry about it flipping over when you take those corners at speed.

2. Traxxas Ford Fiesta ST Rally

If you're looking for the best RC drift car, the Traxxas Ford Fiesta ST Rally is the perfect combination of power, speed, and agility. The powerful Titan 550 motor will muscle you to the front of the pack and its low center of gravity (low-CG) chassis provides the ultimate handling experience to keep you there. The bulk of the Fiesta's mass is distributed down the centerline of the chassis for smooth, stable cornering lap after lap after lap.

3. Traxxas Toyota GR Supra GT4

The Traxxas GR Supra GT4 captures the muscular curves and fine detail of the all-new Toyota Supra with the proven performance and low center of gravity of the Traxxas 4-Tec 3.0 chassis. Feel the surge of power as the GR Supra rockets off the line with an exhilarating 30+ mph top speed, then brace yourself as the ultra-wide racing slicks let loose in the corners. The 1/10 scale GR Supra GT4 RC drift car delivers fun, thrills, and—of course—the sickest drift marks!

4. Traxxas Ford GT Supercar

With the same 4-Tec 2.0 chassis as the Mustang, it's no surprise this blistering supercar performs just as spectacularly in the drift circuits. Combining speed, strength, and style in one dynamic package, the Traxxas Ford GT's low center of gravity and finely tuned suspension provide crisp, responsive handling and sharp cornering. Plus, the Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) system works behind the scenes to help prevent spinouts and loss of control on slippery drift surfaces.

5. Traxxas 4-Tec 3.0 Chevrolet Stingray

If you want your RC drift car to look great as you slide around those corners, there's no better way to do it than with a Corvette—the name that's synonymous with American sports car excellence. From injection-molded inserts to LED-ready lenses, Traxxas meticulously recreated the new Stingray body with stunning accuracy. And if you think all that speed and style comes at the cost of handling, you'd be dead wrong. The Stingray RC car is geometry tuned with a low-slung weight position for maximum stability and precise cornering.
