Hey mate.

The drifter guys are probably the best to ask this, but I'll see if i can help anyway.

Motors and ESCs. You wont need boost or anything for drifting, so I'd look at either the Speed Passion Cirtix Stock Club Race or the Novak Havoc Spec Combo. Something between 17.5 and 10.5 turn motor would be great, i use a havoc spec with a 10.5 in my drifter and its great. Maybe even too much power. These combos are cheap, $99 for the speed passion and $149 for the Novak.

Servo wise, I use a savox in my racer, and the stock kyosho one in my drifter, but I way prefer the Savox. I use a 1257TG which will set you back about $69.

Radio. Alot of people are using cheaper radios from flysky, like the GTb3 and the GT2. These will cost you about $35 and $15 respectively. Or you could go more upmarket and get something like a Spectrum DX3C, about $129. All include both radio and receiver.

Batteries. Definitely Lipo, but check here first:

I use a Turnigy Lipo from www.hobbyking.com its a 2s 30c 5000mAh battery. And a hobby king charger. Battery was $27, charger was $35.

Always try and support your LHS, but for good web prices, checkout www.amainhobbies.com for motors escs and servos and pretty much everything else, www.hobbyking.com have really good prices on batteries and chargers, also do the GT3B and GT2 radio's.

Good luck and have fun

Just to give you an idea, my cousin has a 9.5T EZRun with T-Drifts on bitumen and it brakes loose with very little effort. He only has to squeeze about quarter and about half way on concrete. Also don't fall for them carbon fiber chassis conversion kits or aluminium crap. Because all in all the TT-01 is flimsy of a chassis as one can get so carbon & alu hop ups are pointless. Save your money and stock up on spares. Most important things you'll need for spares department are a load axle sets and few of knuckles, lower arms and upper arms. These are most important when drifting coz you'll definitely smack the wall in four corners very often. And just lock up the diffs with blu tack.

Have fun
