Hi there,
You should do a search on ebay for tamiya, or hpi. Any 4WD touring car will work just fine. Just look into getting a stock class 27Turn motor, and a decent e.s.c. I reccomend the HPI dash, they're affordable, and work perfect for a first drift car.

I don't know too much about what hop-ups may or may not be available. As far as electric motors, e.s.c.'s, and radio gear go you're pretty much limitless. Also any 190mm touring car body will fit with +0mm offset wheels, and any 200mm touring body will fit with +5mm offset wheels ( thats how you can make the deepdish rims and not have the mex look ).

Mind explaining why you think a tc3 is the best? I have had a FT TC3 and a YOK SD SSG and the SSG was a better drifter, due to being lighter and well balanced. Did you skip over the part about him having only $100.00 to work with? The dash is $100.00 and comes rtr right out of the box, just charge the battery and go!

In all honesty its all about preferance. What RCs interest you when it comes to a 4WD chasis? And do you know actually people with Drift RCs. I think the best way is to actually meet with RC Drifters and check out what and what not to buy. They can provide more advice easily, rather than coming here and waiting for a comment. Not to bash any of you guys. But in my opinion thats the best way he can go. Like if I told you that a Tamiya TT-01 or TL-01 was a good set up so what? you need to see what they actually can do. Because everyone has their own style and what they like is something you might now like. you know? But anyway. If you're uber new I would tell you to go and purchase a Yokomo Drift kit. Its the best thing if you have no idea what you really want. Peace

He lives in KY, how many drifters do you think live in KY? LOL, forums is all the kid has! A decent 2 channel radio system would be a the airtronics blazer, decently priced, works excellent. [sm=thumbup.gif]

back to the dash, it is only 2 wd, you'd be much better off drifting something with 4 wd.
