Default Advice On Drift RC

I am new to RC drifting but have experience with off-road. I am looking to get a drifting RC but am not sure what cars are good. Preferably brushless (im not sure if brushless matters as much in on-road as it does off-road). But if anyone could point me in the write direction thanks in advance!!!!

wanna go with shaft drive, go with the team associated tc4 rolling chassis from tower hobbies is $149.99 but if you use the coupon you can get it for $124.99 with free shipping and you pay no tax.

QUALITY:
Yokomo DRB
enRoute JXR
Alex Racing CER D08

BUDGET:
Sprint2 Flux
HPI e10 Drift, maybe if you are poor.

Preferentially, do not buy a TC chassis and convert it to a drifter, buy a proper drifter straight up and save yourself some headaches. Countersteer is the way to go now days, and you just cannot get enough steering angle out of a TC chassis. Also, why spend tons of dosh on hop ups when you can buy something that is ready to roll out of the box, that is going to be much much better.
