I've tried tbevo, tto1r, tbo2r, tao5.
The best is the tao5 with the tbo2r second.

I used to drift a lot,
My first car was a converted tc3, then a yokomo cgm
but the car that drifted the best for me was a Tamiy TL 01.

my tbo1 drifted pretty good too. so I imagine the tt01 would drift good.
they all drift good if set up right. pick your favorite car and go from there.

Yokomo, HPI and Tamiya all have dedicated drift cars.

Yokomo has many option parts, bodies and hop ups, expensive tho.

good luck!

Any chassis, actually the cheaper the better. Find a used car drain the oil out of the shocks and install some really bad tires(or hpi or yok drift tires).

Its all about driving all the 400$ cars out today are design to hold tight racing lines so there is no point spending top dollar on a car to reverse engineer the thing, get something cheap and overpower the the tires

True. Its all about steering and throttle action and.....pvc tires. But why get the cheapest chassis? Get an intermediate car like a cyclone s, tao5, tc4 so that if you decide to run grip you still have a competent car and not shell out some more cash for a second rc.

For drifting get a shaft car. A used TC3 would be good.

maybe you should try Yokomo Drift series....TT-01D is good enough too.

TA05 for most value chassis, TB-EVO5 for maximum performance, imho for serious drifting.
TT01/D is most popular for beginners, cheapest, perfect for casual drifting.

I've been using a XXX-S. Drifting creates more dust inside the body so its nice to have the sealed drive train.

i sugest a shaft, any shaft that has good parts upport at ur local hobby shop

i use a XXX-S and iin a corner, i cant really turn my rear around on command b/c of teh belt. but i use a stock motor, and a 19T is allmost to much to do infrom of my house.

and the yokomo is over priced, and unless u live in Cali, useless. b/c Groovy drift is full of its self.
