Yok kits are overated, but for out of the box they are setup very well for drifting.

I have played with drifting nitro, not a rtr nitro drifter but its pretty much the same as the technique in angle and acceleration are the same.

Nitro just presents a problem of too much power to quick, but in time you learn to comensate for this. Its just like drifting full-size, alot of power is good but to much will send your attack angle out of range and make it hard to control and pull in..

as for the set up for yoke tires just

harder rear springs
tighten the rear diff if you feel it is hard to break traction

I was just out running the car today, too much fun, I found no setup change required to slide the car well. The Yoke Tires are a hard rubber compound, with Plastic rings that wrap them to reduce friction. Batteries also last longer as less drag on the wheels.
