Default Losi XXX-S?

Hey Guys, I don't know squat about electrics and got a Losi xxx-s in a trade. I'm wanting to upgrade the stock system(motor/esc) to a better system. Can you guys "school" me on what good, but cheap system will work for this ride? Trying to build a drift type car for my son. He wants to "cherry" it out.But it's my wallet....so any advise would surely be appreciated. Thanks!

Total over kill he probably can only use 35-50% of the power for drifting LOL

If he just wants to drift,...
Anything Brushed below 19t with torque will work with Drift tires.
Try www.groovydrift.com for more specific help.

But a decent speed Servo and BL system will make life a bit easier but require a throttle control.
More power makes the car a handfull to control.

Depending on Motor and weight, suspension has to be tweeked a little bit.
Yes to start simple drifts just slapping drift tires on any car will work.
Most people here will tell you to just slap PVC or Plastic Drift tires on it and call it a day.

But to make it look good and maintain drifts throughout all the turns and then trying to do it as a duo drift is alot harder than you think and THATs where different set up is comes in play.

I know few Losi Team Drivers, Ex Associated Drivers and wanna be Pros, and even they said its harder than it seems to make it look good, especially Duo drifts on a close course. And a totally different set up come into play.

...and even in Drifting you have 2 Types, Speed Drifts and Then the Slow Drift.
