They aren't the most ideal, but they are good for drifting and have a good amount of option parts.
Basically any 190mm or 200mm body will fit any of the 3 chassis I mentioned. You just have to make sure the wheelbase is correct for whatever chassis you choose.
As for a body, I can personally say go with a 200mm body, and run an ofset wheel, it just looks better than 190mm and a 0mm ofset wheel.
As for a cheaper alternative, the tamiya xv01 tc looks like a good drift chassis, since the motor is front mounted.
