Default gas or electric

can you drift with a gas rc car or is easier with a electric car because i was watching the singapore race video and they where all eletric

do the gas cars put out to much power to be able to have a controlled drift

the thing is that eletric cars have their theoretical max torque at 0rpm whereas a nitro car has the max torque at around 60% of the RPM range plus it has a clutch system it has to deal with also

The most beautiful Drifting I've seen was a NTC3, the guy was awesome, the car mesmerising - I want one too!

I love Drifting my TC3 & Losi STW but that NTC3 was the dog's
