i was looking at a hobbywing ezrun 9t 35a brushless setup if that is any good?
also wondering if the diffs and and car come with BB's through out since its a TRF?
Forget worrying about bottom end vs top end with brushless. Lower turns means higher power and higher rpm - you can then adjust the gearing to get the "torque" you need.
9t is a little overkill for drifting, I'd be inclined to use something with less power in a classic old chassis like that myself. 13.5t max probably. A 17.5t would still be plenty of fun in fact. Hell, VTA is quick with 25.5! Well, that's my opinion anyway.
And yes, that chassis was fully ball raced. The bearings might be a little worn after all these years if it's had much use (doesn't look like it though!)
It's a pretty old design though, don't expect "too" much from it. And be gentle! It's rare!!
