Default Mini Z.... MA-020S VS MR-03S

I am trying to decide between these two and I am having a difficult time....really like the idea of AWD but I do NOT like the idea of it appearing to be full time. I like the idea of 2WD but REALLY wanna make a drift car.

Here are my questions...

Which would you choose?
Which platform is better suited to racing? Drifting?
Can I use the MR15 bodies on the new AWD?
Are there any upgrades for the 020S...I've looked..don't see much? It doesn't even appear to have an aftermarket section...
Is it possible to make the 020S 2WD?
Is the AWD VE a significant upgrade?

I am trying to educate myself but the mini z in general seems to be incredibly unpopular and I can't find a lot of information on these cars in general.

Best place to get an answer for these questions is mini-zracer.com

If you learn Korean and/or Japanese you'll find that Mini-Z's are still pretty huge in Asia.

Yeah, I joined the forum but my registration wasn't approved? I am going to try again.

Right now from a different forum it would appear you want the MA-020S VE. That is fine..but the chassis alone is about 230, then you need a 60 dollar body..oh and you can only use their super fancy 200 controller. That is a huge investment sight unseen.

Right now I am thinking I need to get over the fact I want a micro. Shame because I REALLY wanted one. I just can't justify that kinda cash though...that's 2nd revo territory.

Two wheels would seem to be a better fit for drifting, but seeing I don't drift the only info I can pass along is to check out stormed hobbies and eBay you'll be able to find aftermarket gear there. I do like the all wheel drive but I don't drift
