Default Help on New Car

I am looking for a electric 1/10 scale rc car.l
i want a car that is highly upgradalble such as performance.
But i also want a drift vehicle.
The subaru by tamiya they made a drift version.
Is that really a drift car tho.

Please tell me one that is highly upgradable and will blow the competition away.

and another one for drift.

iam looking to buy 2 money really isnt that much of an option.

also dont worry about me being a noob i have owned 3 cars all nitro.

i think the formula for tourque is
torque = force x length
while
force = mass x acceleration

so i guess the weight of the shaft will deliver more torque
hehehe but im not sure, i got this theory back in high school

until now.. i can't fell belt drive have a big torque.. even in engine car... i just better looking for the shaft drive car for drifting...
if you want to drift.. just looking for the spc drift tyre.. motor with high torque.. also with shock set up.. for drift i think need harder shock set up than touring race ..
