Default Had problems with Yokomo MR-4TC SD Should I consider getting a Tamiya TT-01E?

I have a Yokomo MR-4TC SD and Ive had a few problems with it, Like the ESC and stuff Well... I blew it up by accident hahaha we gotta start somewhere... now it has an Mtroniks Viper ECO20 which is working pretty well. It has a 35T motor in it though... crappy standard! So im going to change it to an HPI saturn 27T I think.... But not until Ive sorted out the dogbones and universal shafts which... blew up and snapped the pin -.- so I had to like do a quick fix on those... So what should I do guys... I don't know weather to just fix it or go for say a Tamiya TT-01E Rolling Chassis and transfer the electrics over with a new motor! Ahh. Decisions decisions! Help me out.
Oh. And Im a drifter but I do like to shove on some touring car tyres most of the time and just give it the balls down the street aha So yeah... which would be best for all this conversion and upgrades?

Haha, 35T motor? HOLY SHIT. That thing must really move!
I have 2x TT01's and I think for the price, they cannot be beat. Plus, they're very durable. You should consider a motor upgrade before anything though. God, you're car must be so slow!

TB03D or TB03r
Ezrun 35A/9T motor esc combo.

Good for drifting
good for outside on parking lots(sealed gears)
good for a thrash with grip tyres- make sure you upgrade to the steel diffs

dont waste your money on a TT01 unless its really cheap.
they are strong but pretty crude.

Hello there. Well im using the same chassis with 60A n 9T ezrun motor n it works just fine. About the universal shaft,try to get the 2.0mm pin which is much durable than the 1.5 mm. and yeah mine also used for drifting
