Thumbs up

Go with the shaft drive, just fewer headaches if you wanna take it outdoors.

It is commonly used by users to replace original text with e.g. "delete" or "please delete post", to get the admin to delete a post.

of course i have, im looking at all my options if there is a better drift car out there i want it. i herd some are better than others i herd brushless or harder to drift than brushed i also herd shaft is not as good as belt and vise versa. im a nitro guy, im just getting into drifting so im asking advice from people already in it. im not looking to get the cheapest out there. i think i amm going to go with the hpi mustang version. since the redcat 911 is out of stock. i herd the thunder drift is better than the lightniing but i herd the lightning epx pro brushless is better so i have no freakin clue now. im prolly going with an hpi..
