Default Best 1/10 cheap drifter?

Hey everyone,
i am looking into getting a drifter as three of my mates just bought some. i have had a Tamiya TT01D before and wasnt super impressed with the car. mainly the slop in steering and upper arms.

What are people using for drift cars? i am looking at the TB03 and the TA05-IFS or TA05ver2. will these be ok to drift or does the motor/bettery layout more suit racing without sliding?

Are the HPI Sprint 2 drift any good?

please let me know what you have if your a drifter so i can buy the right kit.
thanks in advance

All about the set up.

I use a JRX-S Works fine.
HPI Sprint 2 is comon.
check out groovydrift.com

TT-01 TB03 HPI Pro4/Pro3 Cyclones are the usual ones you see on the forum.
Mainlu Tamiya HPI and Yokomo brands.

But like before anything witha good set up drifts well.
Nothing out of the box will drift nicely if you dont set it up.
