Default RTR Drift car? HPI or other?

I've become a chronic buyer of RC cars & vehicles in general... I'd really like to have a drift car in my collection but I don't want to break the bank on it... my 2 outdoor & 2 indoor cars burn up enough budget ... so I'd like to get something that's RTR, capable, looks good, but is not big money. Is that possible or are the RTRs out there garbage? I figure a bigger brand name like HPI would at least have decent build quality. I was looking at these 2... anyone got an opinion on them? They come in at ~$200.00 Worth buying? Good drifters? Or is there an ARTR out there for a close price that I could get for a close price? (Say $300 max)

Same Chassis, different body and wheels. Both drift okay. The included motor is a little underpowered IMO, but its fine for getting started.

Upgrades available. Just comes to personal preference with the look.
