About any touring car could be made into a drift car. You just need hard rubber, or plastic tires, and a rear spool diff.

The BEST on road for drifting: hard to say.

It's just hard to choose one BEST chassis for drifting. There are so many variables; driver, set up, surface, tires, etc that make it hard to say.

There are a lot of good chassis' that will perform very well. All you need is something 4WD and plastic tires. It's best to choose a chassis that has the best local part support.

Cyclone S

You wont be braking many parts drifting, so parts availabilty isnt a biggie.
You can get most parts for anything online.

I just bought a Pro-D and it drifts like a crab sideways straight out of the box











It will set you back around $600 AUD minimum once u've installed electronics and motor etc, but its well worth it, this chasis has amazing high speed drift capability and it holds angle like nothing ive seen before

They are exactly the same thing, put them side by side and the only thing different is the HPI branding, parts are exactly the same, and are easy to get.

Have not have one problem with it as yet, its been drifting great.

Yeh they are hard to find at a good price

Here is the Spec R Pro D kit at RC Model:

http://shopping.rcmodel.hk/product_i...ducts_id=14205

... but its more than twice the price than the copy at r2hobbies.

Go with the pro d copy or if you prefer belt drive, there is a Tamiya top of the line copy for sale on that site as well.

Ive run it around 6 times now without an issue, and parts are exactly the same, so well worth it imo
