Defnitely 4wd. I myself have a tl01, and tried both methods. You really cant drift a tl01 with a 2wd setup. When you go to drift, to much power is transferred to the rear wheels, and none to the front so you just end up spinning out real quickly. I suggest using 4wd. Hope this helps.

Ok, I'll say it again 2wd doesn't work well for drifting an R/C car because it is balanced differently than a 1:1 car. All of your weight is in the back, and you have too much power for the given weight to really simulate the way a 1:1 car drifts. 4WD is the way to go for r/c drift (although I'm working on a little project that might make 2wd r/c drift mroe interesting)
