just about to get into driftin again. i had a TT01D a while ago but only drifted a few times as no one else i knew had drifters. three of my mates now have them, so time for a new one
I am looking at getting the HPI Sprint 2 Drift from tower hobbies for $134 without electrics. is this a good start car? i dont want another TT01D cause i found there was lots of play in steering and was a bit cheaply built. the Sprint 2 looks stronger and has a few alloy parts, also i think belt drive will be better....
Any ideas/opinions? is there a better car to get for the same price?
Also, what brand tires/wheels are people using mostly? i will be drifting on mainly tarmac but also some concrete...
thanks for any help.
