Drift is for people that suck at grip racing.

yeah, i second that. GP drift has its own thrill, but EP drift is much more fun.

.

The Fusion is made to do one thing baically. Go fast in a straight line.
They gear the cars so they can claim to have the fastest RTR on the market, so if you buy the Fusion and then try and make a drifter out of it, you are defeating the purpose that the car was designed for.
If you want a street basher that will go fast in a straight line in a huge parking lot, then the Fusion will do that. If you want to drift you car, then get a car designed for that. Two different types of cars. Cars designed for extremley high speeds typically are not good at for much more than that.
If you want to drift, then purchase an electric car that will do want you want it to do, drift, at much slower speeds

my opinion, this is going to cause you more trouble than what its worth. You also want to buy something that your LHS carries.

If drifting/parking lot bashing is in your area of interest then the HPI drift cars are the ones to purchase. If you plan to be at a track or any local races that car you mentioned will not do ****.
