I'm not sure you understand how little amount of power you need to actually
"spin the tyres".
Drifting is done with plastic tyres that offer very little grip. It's like driving on ice. The 13T hobbywing system you have is more then enough power. And by the way, the videos you linked are not using the same motor as you. The system you've picked is what we use here for a control setup for mini racing. The 13T 3000KV motor with the 35a ESC.
I have 2 of these systems, and both are running on 25c batteries. Specifically Gens Ace 25c 4000mah stick packs, which will fit in your TL01 perfectly (they are the same size as NIMH packs). You can grab them from hobbypartz for about $20 each.
You dont need anything special for it. Those batteries above can put out up to 100a if needed. You 35a speedie wont go near that.
Turn up the punch and timing all the way (using the program card), and gear it at something like 5.0 FDR (you may need the fast gear set). Check the motor temps regularly, say at 1 minute, 2 minutes and 4 minutes the first time around. See how hot it gets. A temp gun is ideal, but if you don't have one, you should be able to hold your finger on the motor for a few seconds without burning yourself. The max you want to get to is 70 deg C (160 deg F). And I mean max. For longer life try to keep it more in the 50 deg C (120 deg F) range.
