Default Newbie just bought a TT01, but I don't know anything!

I want to make a drift car. I just won this auction on eBay.
I'm not looking to get super deep into this, just yet, like a lot of you are. But I'm willing to do a little to make this car better. What do you guys think? Did I do good? What should I do first? I don't know what the hell I'm doing.

What's the biggest and bestest website (besides eBay) to buy parts from?

i dont know anything about that car, or drifting so i cant offer you any parts advice.

but if you're new to the hobby sport overall, i would suggest using what you have till you feel that an upgrade is actually needed.

last summer i got into rc trucks and decked out my revo.
ended up using it WAY more when it was stock, because it was
easy to use. looked cool modded out with tons of money spent on parts.
but looked a lot cooler going 40mph and running well.

so maybe do some minor things like new tires to start.
feel it out, and go from there.

happy driving

im not into drifting but it looks like you've got yourself a good car for the $

Its already got drift tyres and they are one of the most important factors. Get yourself to a local drifting club and talk to the regulars is about all I can suggest, and learn to wrench the car.

Study the manual so if anything happens you'll be familiar with it all. happy drifting

Thats a great drifter in stock form. I've got one, and the only thing i would tell you to do is lock the diffs. It make a huge difference in how it drove. Tons more controllable. Take the diff out, take the gear/cover off, and theres a planatary gearset in there. take off the top gear (it will be laying flat) and there will be three more gears vertically on a three shafted holder. (it makes sense when you open the diff) Remove one of the gears, and press it in between the other two. Make sure its fully seated, reassemble the diff, and repeat for the other diff. I know thats explained poorly, but send me a message if you need clarification. Its the easiest way to lock a tt-01 diff, and its reversable as well.
