HPI and Hotbodies are actually different brands from the same company...

However drift cars (generally) are not designed for circuit racing so would normally need extra parts to be suitable. The Cyclone is a pure racer and is also a simply better car than the Sprint 2.

Get the cyclone. Drifting is for parking lots. If you plan on getting hopups right away, might as well get the Cyclone black edition.
