Default Tamiya TA05 Drift?

Hi there, I currently have a Tamiya TA05 that I would like to set up purely for drifting. I have pretty much no idea what so ever about the upgrades/hop ups I could be getting for this, so any help is appreciated.

Thanks Guys

Here is a nice start...

http://www.drccentral.com/old/rc-drift-setup.html

for a TA05, the main thing u need would be the tires... try HPI T drift tires, they are the best for the job. The rest is not all that important if you use a slippery ABS tire like the T drift. A sport tune black can motor would help, but the stock TA05 should be pretty good for drifting as it is~

i also have a TA-05 that I have been drifting with professional drifters .
Lock the rear diff and get ball diff in fronts more controlable . Soft suspension both in front and rear . Use the Hpi T drift .
