The Redcat RDS Competition Spec 1/10 2WD Drift Car Builders Kit offers a highly adjustable and high performance drift platform, whether your a veteran drifter or just starting. Using a competition inspired design the RDS platform provides a solid base with the ability to fine tune the driving characteristics to your liking. By using premium features such as a carbon fiber chassis, adjustable motor positions, multiple shock mounting locations and a plethora of suspension geometry adjustments it's easy to see how the RDS is a must have for the drift enthusiast.

Designed with competition in mind by the seasoned drift drivers, the RDS has been developed to give you the edge you need at the track. Through rigorous testing Redcat was able to specifically cater the RDS platform to excell on prepped surfaces such as P-Tile and polished concrete as most drift tracks will use these surfaces. With that in mind the RDS design can easily adapt to less than ideal surfaces such as unpolished concrete or asphalt with it's incredible amount of chassis adjustments. 

The RDS chassis is completely adjustable allowing the user to fine tune the chassis to best suit your driving style and surface. The motor plate can be mounted in three different positions, altering the car’s chassis roll and weight bias. This can adjust the amount of traction and chassis roll the RDS has on different surfaces. The RDS has multiple steering link positions and a sliding Ackermann plate, making it easy to fine tune the Ackermann. The RDS is loaded with tuning capabilities that will suit even the most advanced drivers.
