Well...I don't know much about the other ones...But this one goes well at drifting...the only thing you MUST do in any of those cars..replace the stock tires with 2" pvc's . ! If you never touch an Rc before ( like I did ) Don't be afraid of assembling . it's very easy to do and extremely fun too But mines up for sale right now....I want to restart over again with the yokomo S15 ! If you got more questions , feel free to ask !

I went to my local Hobby Shop where I live , But you can get one from Ebay at $199USD . Not assemble without the motor, batteries , controller ,servo etc.. You'll need to get the body painted too .

Like I said , I want to SELL my rc but ... i'm having trouble letting it go ! Too fun to play with

I would probably let it go at around 450 USD.... But you get a FULL equipment with it do !
Here's what you get :
- All the chassis is assembled with motor (27 turn , fast enough for drifting )
-Controller with servo , reveiver and speed control . also included with remote are the 8 AA batteries .
-2 x 1500 batteries which last about 10 minutes each with the charger .
-Shock oil
-Extra parts and stickers
-Stock wheels and original tires . Right now it's on 2"PVC tires...which makes it driftier .
-The body is painted with a metallic blue .
-Other set of wing and lights are included as the instructions of EVERYTHING ....

I guess that's pretty much it...It's ready to work out of the shipping box !

I'll even recharge the batteries before shipping so that you can enjoy the drifting craze !!!!
