One word....."Yokomo" . They have been in the drift industry for ages, they have mastered it...if i was wanting to drift thats what i'd go for.

It sounds like the only difference between those two cars is that one is "rtr" which is ready to run, with radio gear and motor, etc.

If you dont have any radio gear or electronics and are a noobie, a rtr kit is probably the way to go.

I do agree though, that if you can afford one, the the Yokomo kits look nicer than the HPI kits, although the HPI sprint drift looks like a fun car too

I have a Yokomo CGM, it is up for grabs because I no longer drift.

it is exactly the same as the yokomo drift spec ket. except that it has all of the upgrades, carbon molded tub chassis, carbon arms towers etc. threaded shocks.

if your interested pm me.

btw the yokomo make a nice drift car, plenty of hop ups available. they also have rtr's

I have heard nothing but good things about the tt01 personally I like the drift of a tc4 and the losi xxx-s. There is a guy on here selling a xxx-s you should look into that. As long as your gear mesh is good and you got some abs or pvc on the wheels that thing is a drifting machine. The xxx-s has all the ability of the other drift cars out there. The car is all wheel drive with a covered drivetrain to keep debris out of it and keep your car working great. I have had mine for some time now been drifting it and cant complain about anything except the hop ups i want they dont have my color. I haven't broke anything on the car and i have hit a few thing on some high speed runs. I do have a mamba max 5700kv system on it and it still drifts great. Just my words to the wise if you will. Something to look into. Another thing buying a kit is easy but getting a car and putting it together piece by piece is the hobby. Any snobby person with money can go buy a car but can they buy your that you put together? Every car i have owned except for the micro t i have bought piece by piece and put together myself.
