hi i would think a tamiya TT01D . you can upgrade it as you get better and better.
For what motor , i dont know because i dont know anything about drifting .But most of the RTR ( ready to run ) drift cars dont have a very powerfull motor like a 20t , 23t . so i guess that you dont need a very powerfull motor , because if its to powerfull it will be harder to drift properly and it wont look very nice to watch.
You could also have a look at the HPI E10 drift car it comes with a 20 turn motor.
But i would prefer the TT01D
for motor i would go with 23 turn .
Hope that helped

You can consider getting a Tamiya TA05 if you're thinking of competing.

thanks guys....i have a tamiya TT-01E right now but im planning to use that on tamiya races here next summer. so i gues i'll have to stay with a tamiya chassis then right? i might check out the hpi too though. one more thing i need to ask...im very new to electric cars(just got my TT-01E last week) coz i've since raced nitro cars.....what do those "turn" means when it comes to motors???

thanks

You might also want to look into Yokomo. They make a line of drift cars.
