Default TB-03 vs Exceed Drift Star

Wow. I'm researching these two cars right now myself.

Couple questions about the Exceed Car.
Does it allow for adjustment of the camber and toe-in?

I'm planning to make a rally car out of a tub chassis car - TB-03 or Exceed

Upgrade parts for the TB-03 are off the chart, so that seems like a value that makes the higher price more worth while.

why... there is nothing wrong with the madspeed fit and finish is great and he would probly have to order parts for the tamiya also.My car runs as smooth as my tamiya i had.Plus they have lots of hopups for it aluminum pivot blocks all dif. numbers and other parts, carbonfiber parts, oneway and a solid axle for it. If you want a shaft car u can't beat the price of this car and what it comes with.

Lol, I would get both but... Just look at it the TB-03 is like x2 the Mad Speed's Price. I was a very big fan of Tamiya and all. I liked it. I was gonna use Carbon Fiber Chassis. Would've been cool. But this car comes with the 2.4GHZ Radio and a Brushless Motor and ESC...for a little under 200$ RTR with battery and charger. You can't beat that.

But I still really want that Tamiya because of the materials and the carbon fiber chassis. I won't be able to install most of these stuff which is Why I found some helpful people on here who would buy the kit and all the other stuff I need and build it for me. Hopefully they won't steal the heat-sink and other essential stuff or just install it incorrectly. I Really don't know what to do now. For the TB-03 this is what I'll want:

20 Turn Brushless Motor and ESC
2.4 Ghz Radio with Servos and all.
Carbon Fiber Chassis
Indicator Lights installed.
Wheels with tires for Non-Drift Racing and Drift Racing
Full Ball Bearings
Lipo Battery and Charger
New Painted Nissan GT-R R35 Body
Better Steering (I'm not fond of what RC Techies would call it).
Better Gears

I want good products that wont break easily and are strong but will also last long.
