My friends are the Hyperdrift guys found on You Tube and their own site. Both Yokomo & Tamiya make good cars for drifting. The Yokomo has more drift oriented hopups but some can be modded to fit some Tamiyas. In particular, the Yokomo FCD rear diffs can be made to fit the TB03, EVO IV, and EVO 5 for countersteer drifting which is popular, now. My TB03R is in the TB03 thread and has been modded to fit the Yokomo FCD (no pics of the mod, though.). The only other concerns I would have is parts availability in your area. Over in Hawaii, Tamiya is a little easier and cheaper to get so that's what the majority of the drifters run. However, most of the cars that are setup for countersteer in the Hyper vids are HPI Sprint 2 with modded rear ends. I think there is a TRF 416, TA04, & Cyclone that are setup for countersteer, too. Belt drives are easier to mod for countersteer due to just finding the right pulleys and belts.
