Keep it simple and look at a brushless system with a 13.5 - 10.5 motor.
Its ideal for starting out and smaller drift tracks. A motor heatsink is also recommended

there is no better or worse.
Depending on your surface you have to select your drift tires.

T-Drifts for grippy smooth asphalt.
Super Drifts for loose no grip Parkin lot
PVC for Indoor High Grip Smooth concrete or carpet.

Stick to solid Tires no rings, comes cheaper last longer. Drift rings break easy. IMO
But some people like them better. Also Drifitng in open parking lot will bore you quick.
Try taking it to the track when no one is racing. Alot more fun and Harder.

It all depends on what you run on.
And Believe it or not these Hard tires do have different Grip Grades to them just like reag tires.

Have fun.
