Default Traxxas Ken Block 4WD without drifting?

Is it possible to set up a Traxxas Ken Block VXL 4WD not to drift? Change of tires maybe? I am looking for a onroad car but want car with good grip :-)

Yeah sure, change the tyres to high grip slicks like the one used on most touringcars. I used always Sorex tyres.

Even with good tires the Ken Block is still not a great Non-Drifter. It has a very high center of gravity causing it to lean tremendously. With a lot of dollars in hop ups and some inserts in the shocks to limit the travel you could perhaps get it to corner consistantly but by the time you do all that you could probably buy a really good RTR Touring car. I bought the Ken Block for my daughter and if it weren't for the fact that she really likes the way it looks I would be regretting the choice. Luckily I have an old RS4 Pro for her to move up to when she is ready.
