Shaft drive, less likely to get ruined with stones. But is noisier, subject to torque steer.

Belt drive, smoother throttle, easier CS path, quieter. Subject to belt damage when running on unprepped surface.

You want a Yokomo BRD, Tamiya VDF, TEH-R31... aka a front motor belt drive. If you just want to run 50:50 and then get bored, by all means, get a TT-01.
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.
