Tamiya TA05
Tamiya TT01
HPI Cyclone
HPI E10
HPI Sprint 2
Associated TC4

Just to name a few. Really, any RC car can do the job just as well as any other car.

Hey i dont drift but i can still answer your question, the cars i would recomend would be something decent. Here are a couple of producers i would go for,

Team losi
Corraly
HPI
Colt
HB
Team Asocciated

There are many others but i would go for one of there cars.
You dont need a "drift car" since u can set up a normal one the exact same, mount some drift tires and stuff on and yeh.

you thinking nitro or electric?
Id be going electric. Cheaper, Easier, Use Anywere, less maintaines...

Hope iv helped answer your question.
