that looks more like a toy if i were you stay away from it.If your looking for a affordable drift car the Tamiya TT01 is a good start.Are you new to drifting?

you could buy one online for about 115 brand new in Australian currency without shipping from tower or other retailers and have it shipped or find one locally

Hey bro.

The TT01 seems to be a favorite starter car for drifters, one of those will set you back around $250-$270 for the car, but you'll still need batteries charger and radio. The RTR kits with a radio will cost you about $350-$400, but i'd advise against that because they come with the stock FM radios.

If you look on sites like www.familyland.com.au there are plenty of hop us available for the TT01. Ive bought stuff from these guys both online and in store and they are pretty good to deal with.

If you dont mind importing from the states check out www.amainhobbies.com and for batteries and chargers look at www.hobbyking.com

The car i use is a Kyosho TF-5, i picked it up for on road racing and for drift, but took me a whole 4 weeks to want to upgrade to a 2.4Ghz system. I use a LRP A3-STX radio which cost about $120.

Another thing ive experianced is that it doesnt take long for upgrades that you "need" to add up very quickly on a lower spec car. Hop up parts for stronger components, and power upgrades for longer run times and more speed are common problem areas. So its worth considering spending more and going for a nice belt driven chassis with brushless motor and lipo to start with rather then later. Just last week i spent about $300 on all the gear needed to go to brushless and lipo, because there are alot of hidden costs. Plus another $100 on tyres and some set up gear. This is for a car that cost me $370 to buy at my LHS plus the other $120 on batteries and charger that are now pretty useless.

What part of AUS are you in mate?

Yeah mate whats the link?

Heres where i got the rough pricing for the TT01 from:

http://www.familyland.com.au/index.p...ort=20a&page=4

Family land is based in syd.

That page is a few diff TT01 kits.

I just checked out www.towerhobbies.com and the pricing is really good. If you buy within aus you'll pay the being an aussie tax, so will be more expensive. Its probably to do with buying power though.

Id definitely grab a 2.4ghz radio though. Tower's combo packs lets you choose one.

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0170p

vs

http://www.familyland.com.au/index.p...oducts_id=9163

closest comparison i could get.

Most NiMH car batteries that you get from hobby stores will be ok, they usually use a Tamiya plug.
