The RTR TC4 is faster out of the box. It comes with a mild mod motor instead of the Mabuchi can motor in the Tamiya kits.

It looks like a fairly good kit with some drift potential. HPI Europe has a Sprint 2 StageD kit.

Which is basically a Sprint 2 with drift tires and a few hop-ups.

I say go with the TC4.

No matter what car you get you can always upgrade the elecronics, put a better motor in, and fine tune the suspension. You don't need anything fancy to drift.

I always order from Tower Hobbies, they have good prices and fairly quick shipping.

Also if you are going to be making a big order, they have discount cupons!
