Default Best R/C car to drift with ...

Can anybody tell me what the best on road electric is best for drifting? I'd like the size to be with in the 1/18 to 1/10 range XD also, can you tell me what i need to do with that car after I purchase it to win drift races ... like mods and stuff. I currently have a XMODS r/c car thingie, i don't think you'd call that a "true" rc car, but it's fun to play with. And i like to have a variety of car bodies .. i'm into the whole JDM look kind of thing so what would you guys reccommend me to get?

The right rires are more important I would say.

The HPI stage D tires looks good and more fun than PVC tires cos more grip/speed on the straight.

any 4wd car with abs or pvc tires will drift just fine but a car with ball diffs is like a night and day difference

and i use my tt01 but now i use my 414

Wow, no one has given this guy a good answer

http://yokomousa.com/

Yokomo makes a whole lineup of drifters, mods, bodies, and other visual and performance accessories.

If you don't get a Yokomo, then just buy their bodies b/c they are true drift bodies.


I'm not burning you guys, I just wanted to make sure he is steered in the right direction.

I've heard that the old Pro 2 is the bomb for drifting.
