Default Suzuki swift

Hi everyone, this is my first post and i will admit i know nothing about rc cars from the off.
Basically i want a suzuki swift rc car like the tamiya suzuki swift super 1600
but idealy i want it RWD for drifting, so i was wondering what chassis i could buy which would fit the swift shell on it, ideally with a motor/battery/reciever and all that gubbins.
I want it pretty quick and powerfull enough to drift well.

Thanks for reading this people

I have a swift body but it's on my mini and that is fwd so won't suit your drifting, so not sure of other shells that may suit a rwd or 4 wd tourer.

If you want a drift car you'll want AWD. Look at the Tamiya TT01D.

Newly evolved TT-01 type E chassis features brand new A Parts and D Parts. Damper Stay and Gear Case parts are made from fiberglass-reinforced resin for greater strength. These parts are now also separately molded to enable easier maintenance. New front and rear uprights are also made from durable fiberglass-reinforced resin. Improved steering linkage design features TA05 steering posts for sharper steering response. Completely new upper deck enhances chassis rigidity and mimics Tamiya???s high-level racespec machines. Upper deck also features a convenient transponder mount to further encourage fans to go to their local track and experience R/C racing. New-mold SX4 WRC body made from lightweight polycarbonate material. Injection-molded side mirrors and rear wing provide crisp detail. Includes ESC (TEU-101BK), Type 540 motor, and LEDs to install in the metal-plated front and rear light cases.

The new Tamiya Mini M06 is rear wheel drive I think. Check out the Mini threads, or Tamiya.com for more info.
