I got a TT-01 kit for only 79.99 dollars and I love it. The only thing I am going to do to it is bearings, new motor 27t and alloy shaft and Ill be set. Here are some pics

TT-01 are a good drift car and easy to look after.. couple of minor hop-ups.

Like Inc0321 said.. bearings, alu drive shaft and maybe a better motor, although the sports tuned motors go alright and donít need maintenance.

Also look at a damper hop-up i think the stocko ones are a little average.

The Losi Drift-R would'nt be a bad buy.. being a XXX-S the belt is sealed which is good for car park bashing. Also bearings and decent dampers are included. Also u get a basic novak speedy which can handle down to 15t mod when u wana upgrade the motor, a Trinity 19t motor.. which are ok but i dont think they are top notch trinity and a JR radio.
