Talking DIB vs DPM

So here's the question, DIB or DPM.
I've been playing around with my TT01-D for quite a couple of months now and thought that i might want to play with something more fun. I've done a little research regarding both monsters and know that Dpm is the shaft version of DRB which seems really awesome. But the trend now seems to be DIB. So i was wondering if anyone can give me some advice regarding these two monsters?
I've heard that DPM has quite a torque steering which i dont really understand the term 'Torque'.
I'm still quite new to RC so i would love to gain more knowledge before buying anything so costly.
ANW, i'm pretty interested in CS and steering angles. Hence which one can get me a pretty nice CS and angle?

Pretty much Thanks!

I have no idea what you're talking about. But I don't have a picture of a bunny with a pancake on its head handy.

Huh? What's DIB and DRB stand for? Is this a drifting thing?

torque steer is common with shaft driven cars. torque steer means it'll pull to one side or the other under acceleration and you'll have to correct it via your steering wheel.
drifting doesn't work so well on uneven/dirty debris filled surfaces, so going with a belt driven isn't a downside like it can be with on-road racing, and you won't get the torque steer with belt driven.

Torque steer in shaft driven chassis is overblown IMO. A TC4 just won The Halloween Classic against belt driven Xrays and the like.

Go with the dib. Better balance and much easier to setup for countersteer. Be sure to buy the 1.5 cs rear belt and pulley set as well.
