I saw the article in R/C Driver, and while it was a little brief about the preformance, after seeing a car with yokomo's drift tires I have to agree with its findings. You can really drift, but our cars have more power than the tires can handle, so feathering the throttle is a must to keep it under control... but that's the whole point... the car drifts in a controlable fashion.

I'd probably refrain from putting in a hot motor in the car because you'll probably lose control of the car before you get up to full speed, but its still fun. Also, I would think the smoother the driving area the better.

But I didn't drive the car myself, so just some observations.

I have the Yokomo drift tires...

I actually find it smoother drifting with the pvc tire setup. Also, the rings on the Yokomo rims don't last long! ($ -> Yokomo).

The rings are almost gone after 2 packs. PVC's, have drifted with them over 10 packs and they're still like new.
