But TB03D doesn't come with any of the alloy stuff.... I think it only comes with drive spool and one way, if I'm not mistaken.
When I bought mine, I was comparing TB03D with TB03D with upgrades, I ended up buying the latter because it comes with a lot more hop up stuff.
IMHO, I think VDS is a good buy because it is specifically designed for drifting. They actually move the drive train to the front and split the power distribution, making the car more drift friendly.
I'd go for VDS and may be skim on only have 1 body or have a cheaper ESC.
