ahhh, NO!!!!

TT01 are a base car....they are ok for drift...but there is no adjustability with them....best tamiya drifta is a hard 1..as lot of the drift bois like the TA03...becuase of the front mount motor...makin the car more balanced....Ta05 are good aswell..

its personal preference...thats wat it cums down 2!!

If I was you, I would go to your local hobby store and see what car they stock parts for and then buy one of those.

I'd then also get into real RC racing but that's just me.

I recommend a TA05. If they don't have that, then any belt-driven chassis will fit the bill.

its really hard 2 say "this is better" because i might like a shaft driven....whilst u might prefer a belt-driven car.....and handling between the TB02 (wat i drive) and the Ta03 (front mounted motor) IS VERY LARGE!!! so it is really hard 2 say...see wat brands and bits ur LHS carries....coz if u buy a car...and the LHS doesnt have em....its gotta be a bi$ch.....my missus bought me a Ta05 off rcmart...i want a belt-driven coz i am tired of the torq steer that i get with my new motor!!

hope you are happy with ur eventual decision!

why tamiya? HPI make the sprint 2 drift and the E10 drift. (sprint is belt, E10 is shaft) the E10 has a front mounted motor but you can switch to the back for touring. of course, i may be slightly biased due to the fact i'm getting an E10 for my B-day... (5 days!)

I wouldn't suggest the ebay route unless you can find a rather large supply of parts for what you're looking at.

Parts will and do break during practice. especially parts that you don't think will break.
