Hey guys, I'm planning to get a high end drift chassis but not sure which one so need help. I was thinking of the Tamiya VDF 2, MST MS-01D GT or Team Magic E4D MF Pro. Which one of those three do you think is best out of the box, easy to maintain and just simply THE BEST? If you had a different chassis in mind please let me know. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

to be honest, I would rather get the yokomo dib, it has some sweet stock angle, and counter steer kits for it and I think there is a one way and solid axle? I have the ta05 VDF and there are to many problems such as not enough steering angle. Im not sure if it has been fixed on the vdf2 but i would just get a DIB. hope that helps.

Yeah I've heard the same about the VDF's where you need to tune to a lot. Never really heard about the yokomo dib though, will be checking that out now..

the only problem with yok stuff is you cant find ANYWHERE in the US that sells it. at least not that I know of.
I dont wanna drop the money on a nice kit and have it shipping from hong kong and getting stuck in customs for whatever reason.

so that pretty much narrows it down to E4D MF pro / VDF2 / TC-FD


opinions on the best out of those three? I know the VDF2 and MF pro are spanking new and only about a month old

That is true, have you thought about going on csjunkies or rcdriftrevolution and see what there opinion is on these two cars? Those are probably the 2 more popular drift forums.

ive tried to register on some of the other drift forums, but my account never gets created.
guess they think im a spammer.

seems the majority of all the serious people about it run yok stuff.
I just dont wanna deal with large amounts of money and waiting weeks for overseas delivery.
a set of wheels or something isnt as big of a deal but

If the performance is enough to justify the cash then I don't really care

I've got a couple grand in a nitro buggy and easily 1500 in my sct

Price isn't as big of a deal, I want in stock parts in the US and something I don't have to spend another 200 in ups to get results

I'm a Tamiya lover so I say VDF 2. That said, I've been into RC long enough to know that really you should go for something that has alot of support. Both for parts and for hop ups. It seems that all of the better high end drift cars come from Japan but parts are a little bit more hard to come by.

Does that mean the VDF2 is better then the E4D MF Pro and the MST FS-01D or the opposite? I'm confused
