Default TC4 vs. HPI Sprint 2 and Noob drifting questions

Hello all,

For two years now, I have been racing offroad in a stock 4x4 SCT class with considerable success. I am now interested in drifting and want to get a good chassis that is:

adjustable (not hpi e10)
easy to find parts for (not yokomo)
under $300 (not Tamiya TA05 VDF)

kit or RTR is fine.
shaft driven is preferred.

I was looking at the Associated TC4 and HPI Sprint 2 Drift.
I have heard mostly good things about both though I have heard that the HPI suffers from belt breakage and steering slop. Which should I get? I am currently leaning more towards the TC4. Any other suggestions?

And are there any good Brushless systems out there that you recommend for less than $150?

I'm not looking to compete, but mainly go bashing.

Hi you could get a ta05 v1 or v2 belt driven, in the future you could do some countersteer it, brushless setups you can get hobbywing ezrun(sensorless) aprox 100 or get the xerun(sensor) for about 140 in hobbypartz.com
