Default Drifting Questions

I recently picked up an Ofna JL10e roller (non drift version) for drifting.

I have the traxxas TQ 2.4ghz radio and a GensAce 2s 40c 5000mah I'll be using with the car, as well as a boat load of different springs I can fine tune the suspension.

I originally used a Velineon system in it out of my stampede, but the torque steer was atrocious. I sold the system and now have $150ish to dump into a new setup

I found this: http://www.hobbypartz.com/07e-10-5t-...-120a-lcd.html

and i thought it seemed pretty decent. I would like to stay Brushless and sensored. any other systems you rctechies could recommend?

also, I have looked at the Savox 1257tg for a servo to replace my antique Futaba S3003 I used for testing. Is this the 'best' servo for drifting at the $60ish price range?

also, would I be better getting a belt driven car for drifting?

That sensored system should be very good for what your using it for i wouldnt really recommend much else because thats the speed control i use and its very nice for the price. For a servo ive used the savox 1251mg really nice speedy servo, but one time i received a blue bird hobbyking servo and find it to be very good i use it in two of my touring cars
