Alright. I may be getting the one I state above as its second hand and its a bit cheaper + the person selling is giving me free deans + a lipo battery. 140$ SGD.

Just wondering, is turbo needed for drifting? If so, how do you determine if an ESC has a turbo feature?

HobbyWing Xerun Sensored Combo. V2.1 ESC + 10.5T + LCD Program Card

Does the ESC from this Combo comes with a Turbo Feature?

Turbo will be useless when drifting... You will want to have the smoother throttle you want while drifting. By the way I agree with the others. Just buy some drift tyres, put the spool on the rear and the one-way (or diff) in the front, the softest springs, the thinnest shocks oil you have and let's go!

Hobbywing combo will be the way to follow...

I think a proper 60A ESC with a 13.5T motor will be perfect, don't go for a too powerful motor (like 8.5T) and limit the power on the radio, that's a first common error of many drifters...
