Just about any touring car chassis can be used for drifting. It's a matter of having hard rubber, or plastic tires and a locked rear diff. I would suggest going with the TC4, it's cheap and durable. Great for getting into that area of the hobby.

Default Drifting

Hello,

Well,just to share my experience and views about drifting. I've started drifting rc in february 2010 n participated in our local competition the same month. From the competition many of the experience drifters use yokomo mr-4tc and tamiya ta-05 but the winner was usually yokomo. That time I was using tamiya TT-01 but it was not as fun and challenging as using yokomo that i bought recently.

But generally it depends on how you want to use it and the purpose of it. For bashing i recommend you using TT-01 but for comp i prefer yokomo.
