Buy a TA-05, swap the wheels and tyres out for drift items, car is well balanced, drift mine and it is better drifting than my TB02. And they are well cheap.

if you can bolt drift tyres to it and you can adjust things like camber and gear ratios then any car will drift with a bit of work. i would recomend going for the car that you can get hold of spares the easiest, those metal poles come out of no where when youve got a good slide going

Why is a TC3 not up to it?
That would be exactly my suggestion! Great car, good spares availability together with great strenght, what more do you want??

its the stage 3 upgrade it gos for 150 (US) reg. but u cant ajust camber and all that jazz when u buy the RTD's, i personaly think they are a rip and i drift a xxx-s (dont buy one, no one makes hop-ups anymore)

if ur gona compete in events like the Groovy drift point series just buy a yokomo and get the up grades and some metal links,

just my 2 cents

check the Offical Drift Thread for some more advice

If you don't care about the appearance of the car too much, believe it or not, but a Tamiya TL01LA works really well with minimal adjustment. 95% of our drifters use this. Others and I have tried some other pro level cars and it takes a lot to even get the cars to drift as nice and easy as the TL01 out of the box. Suggestions for the TL01 are front one way, rear ball diff, and oil shocks w/ Tamiya yellow springs in front & Tamiya Red springs in the rear (the springs are from the touring car rally spring set which has 3 pairs of springs in it).
