These are 2 entirely different things, if you want pure top speed then you want a 4 o 5 turn motor with an esc that can take 6S lipo, if you want to drift, then you do not need speed, but rather you need something that can deliver power much more smoothly, most drift guys i have spoken to use something around 10-13 turn motors and n esc that can take 2 or 3S lipo.

Mostly you need to work out what you want to do with the car, speed runs or drifting, because they are really different in what they need and in how the car is setup.

go to Hobbypartz.com and get one of their super cheap Leopard or Hobbywing systems. Less than $70 for the whole thing and when geared right they are actually pretty decent in making power if a bit lightswitchy and unrefined, but you only get what you pay for. Mine works great in my backyard basher with the $50 radio thrown in for good measure.
