anything 4wd can drift with the right tires. but what makes a GOOD drifter is strongly based on the way the chassis is laid out. good drift cars tend to have the motor and most of the weight at the center front. that way the lighter rear end can swing around easier. also belt driven is a little better due to the smoothness of the power transfer. but all in all any 4wd chassis you can afford is your best bet.

VDF2 is being announced tomorrow at the Shizuoka hobby show in Japan. Should be a good option... but I prefer my Street Jam OTA-R31 overall (great aftermarket parts selection, easy to work on, and since Tamiya is hard to get, might as well run something "scene")

Regular TA-05 v2 is alright, but not ideal due to the center mounted motor.

For a drift car;
- adjustable suspension (camber, caster, toe)
- large steering angle (some cars can be modded, but some cant. VDF1 was poor in this respect, but VDF2 is supposed to have all new steering parts)
- good weight balance (front motor, fromt-mid motor is where it's at)
Raincity Raji Kon - hit me up to drift in the 206/425 -- High CS OTA-R31, RWD "doripake", 50:50 OTA-R31, Slash 4x4, Slash 2wd, Subaru Brat Scaler

WTT: my HPI MRS4, carbon fiber chassis, extra wheels/tires, front one way, skyline body for 1/10 on-road/offroad touring/drift car.

Have drifted with a TA05 belt drive, was nice to drive
not sure why (maybe the cars i learnt on) but i went backwards to a tb03 (shaft drive) and love it!

Currently running eagle racing chasis (front engine) - that has been slightly modified (thanks dremel), currently run it only on carpet and have found it to be very controllable and the most enjoyable to drift

I guess its also what you are used to running and how you learn to drive one of these beasties.

just my 2bobs worth from down here in Australia
