Kit is only cheaper if you already have electronics. For the most part when u buy a kit you get a better car, as you get to build it your self and learn how the car goes together so that you can repair it down the road. Most RTR cars that also come in kit form offer more option or hop-ups in there kit form as they usually strip em down for RTR to low costs since they include all running gear...

Your price range is too low. $100 is gonna get u a used low end car.

IF you looking at new Losi has re-released there old touring car the XXX-S as a drift car and it comes RTR with all kinds of good electronics.

u can get a tamiya TT-01D drift kit w/ pretty decent upgrades for about $140 new. that includes drift tires, ball bearings, oil shocks + it comes w/ unpainted body, esc & motor.

u will need a radio, receiver and servo + battery pack[s] and charger. not sure if they have an RTR or not, but u might check around. the TT-01 is a great basher and is easy to get parts & hop-ups for, but it isn't the most sophisticated car. i've got one and love it.

the kit isn't hard to assemble; i built mine in a few hours and had never built a kit before, so if u can keep a nitro running, u can certainly build it ok.

good luck

I will prefer you to get the HPI E10 Drift Machine... It will only cost you I think around 300 USD... Take note, this is an RTR kit, all you need is there, name it, charger, battery, etc... the one thing that is not included in the kit is 8 AA batteries for the controller... Or without the charger, it will cost you around 250 USD maybe... Try searching in the net about it for more information too...
