The tamiya tl-01 is your best bet for a really cheap electric.

Want cheap drift car. The duratra delphi indy car. Its the only way to go and it will out drift anything else on the market today. Not to mention its half the price comes with a graphite chassis, full ballbearings an esc, radio and a descent mild mod motor for 80 bucks. Oh ya and its got a 1 year gaurentee.

I think those stock tires would be good drifters. Noone likes them because they get sucky traction, which is what you want to drift with.
