Default Newbie Drifter Needs Help!!

Hey,
I've been into RC cars for about a year. I recently got back from college and just got back into drifting. I've been reading some of the other post and have watched the Singapore drift videos. It's pretty sick stuff and it looks so real. I don't have a huge budget but I want to get into drifting. I bought some 2" ABS Couplings so I could fit my rims and tires in, but it is too big. What will fit just the rims? And do I have enough power? Also I'm looking into buying a "real" wing and muffler as I have made my own and they kind of suck as the pictures show? Any suggestions of wings and mufflers? I've seen the Yokomo ones but no dealer in Hawaii carries them. Anyway here's my HPI Sport 2 with HPI Celica Body. I cut out the foglight area and put mesh wire and I have yokomo disc breaks for looks and my own custom wing (sucks). Thanks for any help
