The tt01 used to be a very popular platform for rc drifting. It doesn't take much to make one drift.. if you can, try to get a tt01d. The D comes with bearings, alum center shaft, oiled filled shocks, etc etc.

Boza..I disagree..I have been drifting for over 6 years and have learned that for 5050, you DO want to run softer suspension but 30wt is the max I would go shockoil wise..to keep it easy, run 20/25/30 shock oil ALL 4 shocks. And for springs, you want to run softs in the rear and something SLIGHTLY stiffer in the front. Shock positions will be up to you but I have always had my fronts stand more vertically then the rear. For preload/ ride height, you want to have the rear "squat"/lower then the front. This will allow you to retain any grip you have due to the lack of grip due to the drift tires.. it will also make your car stable and easy to control.
Running stiff in the rear and soft in the front will just make your car twitchy and slow..the goal in tuning a 5050 is to try to retain grip and make it stable so you can maneuver the car anyway at anytime. Once you perfect setup.. you'll see how useful it is during tandems.
For CS, tuning is a completely different story, you guys can refer to www.csjunkies.com
