Default Convert XXX-T to a drift car

Hey all,
One my sons is asking about drift cars. We have been bashing and running at a local clay SCT track.

We have several Losi XXX-Ts and would like to convert one to on road with GTR body...
I once found a li k to a man that made road course shock towers and he suggested shocks as well, but i no longer can find that link...
Thank you for reading

Drifting will require more tire setup than anything. The on-road drift setups use a ABS plastic "tire" to loose drip on a hard surface, concrete or now even felt indoors. They can dance around a track. Using rubber causes a highspeed spinout more than anything. 4wd keeps things stable.
