I would go for a shaft drive as opposed to a belt drive for drifting unless where your drifting is going to always be clean. I run a TT01 as my drift chasis but I have been thinking about getting a TB03 maybe the 05 from Tamiya..
TT-01/Hitec MG/SP LPF V1.1/Trinity 7.5
Losi Type-R/JR Z8800S/SP GT 2.0
Exotek F1R/Savox 1251/Tekin RS
TLR 22 2.0

TA05 or TA05 ver 2. More than you will ever need in a drifter. Get the spool or direct coupling (as Tamiya calls it) for the rear and run a tight front diff and away you go!

Buying a more expensive chassis would be a waste unless you only drift and want all the bling

Oh and if you decide to give racing a go the TA05 is more than up to the task. I have wipped many a high end chassis with my TA05 when I used it for racing before it was a drifter.

Cyclone S is also a good choice!
