Default Cheap Drift RC Cars

Hi, I'm new to the RC scene, and I'm looking for cheap RC Drift cars..

I am wondering if these are half decent?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rc-Drift-Car...#ht_500wt_1287

^ I can't seem to find the brand.. I wonder if there are spare parts?
ex: Spare wheel, spare battery, spare motor..
1/10Size

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-RC-Remot...ht_5478wt_1270

And this... I can't find the brand either. And I'm wondering if there are any spare parts.

there're not hobby grade cars. so parts r realy hard to get...i'm sure ur not going to brake many parts on a drift car. try Exceed.. brushless drifters for like 180.00. there pretty good.

SUPER GT POWER
KING SPORT RACE
MODERN DRIFT
And the logo is a ripoff of HPI's newer logo...
Don't take this the wrong way, but you'd pay money for this?

i would think a brushed drifter would be fine, you really wouldnt want to go into a turn sidways at 50mph.

i think a drift car is next on my list. OFNA most likely. its a pre-assembled kit.

I agree with Xerxes the red cat racing drifters are awesome for the buck. And the local hobby shop has been swapping out HPI parts on his like the 1 way diffs and other repair parts seems like a direct clone. Especally for a $160 brushed RTR

Any touring car + electrical tape on all four tires = drift car.
