Post HPI Sprint sport 2 Drift? Or what???

I have a question if the HPI sprint sport 2 drift is a good car if you put street tires on it and race it not in a drift race? If not how or what would be a decent car to get with out spending a ton?

It's a decent car, the cyclone s would be better for your intentions.

but less durable. They burn through diff screws and chassis for a living.

TA05? It's a strong belt car with good part support. Other than that, any car would make a good drift car. Just need drift tires and a solid rear axle.
