Well, if you're looking for a drifter the Yokomo is built for it. You can turn any car into a drifter though, just switch out the tires with Yokomo ones or make some PVC rims.

yep its true the yokomo drifter is just a normal kit with drift tires

ide try a stock motor or a 19t

as for wheels you could make sum pvc wheels or wrap your tires in electrical tape

Many of us like ABS tires over PVC. They look more realistic, and have a little bit more traction. It will also last much longer than some electrical tape on rubber tires.

I have a couple of drift questions too, sorry to hijack...

Will the car still drift ok with a modded motor? like a Yokomo ST?

Or would a tamiya super stock or RZ, TZ be better?

Thanks

typically stock motors are better for drifting. Mod motors have too
much power to them and are more difficult to control.
Since your not looking for speed in drifting, your more concerned
with nice long drifts. So a mod motor would really be a waste of
money. $25 bucks compared to $50-80 bucks.
