With winter beginning to show its fury, my attention has turned to some indoor projects. I decided to attempt a unique build involving converting a plastic model car to a RWD RC drift missile. In this video I introduce the project car for this build; an assembled 1/24 1991 Pontiac Firebird model kit. Give an over view of my plans for this project, and tear down the model to give myself a clean slate to mount the electronics to. As I was building I realized a 1/24 scale axle I previously used in a similar car set up for drag racing would fit nearly perfectly in to this car, adding an extra level of realism but also add difficulty to this already tricky build. Will it drift? Will it even drive? Will it catch on fire? Too early to tell but this will be one epic build.
