anything with 4wd and put ABS or yokomo drift ring you're on the go
or check drccentral.com/forum for sure a lot of people will tell you what chassis to start with.

Bud you might have your car too low.Id suggest raising tehride height.
Also check out oneten.co.za fpr some tips and lots of pics and info.
If you need another chassis then get any shaft type and you dont have to buy new .You could pickup some nice 4wd cars 2nd hand.

I suggest you buy the Tamiya TA05 kit, just put on drift tires and drift!!!

With its great balance and great performance, this is 110% excellent for drifting... Trust me... I know... And give you additional tip on making it to drift with tight corners and with tight hair pins, get the center one way and practice with it and for sure you'll have a fun drifting!!! Yeah... hahaha

BTW, you're kit maybe too low for drifting... for you've said this is your on road kit (grip) so I guess it is lowered for optimum center of gravity... (am I right???)

Anyway, HTH's

Actually HPI has come out with a drift car with drift tires that you can buy seperately. The tires are a harder compound with treads or no treads. HPI calls that class Stage D.

sorry for the confusing post of mine the other day... What I meant was that his ride height is to low that is why his chassis (under) are getting scratched... Don't get me wrong for I drift and I just not drift but I am a drifter... So don't tell me what's wrong and what's right when it comes to drifting... Again, I'm sorry for my confusing post the other day... lol

Don't get me wrong with my post... I don't mean no harm...

PEACE

Just want to add about the ride height... I actually drift my kit with more than 5mm ride height... It's most likely at 7mm ride height...
