i dont own a drift car but i do look at this part of the forum all the time cause i love the drift cars. for a kit everyone gets the Tamiya TT-01 or TL-01. you will need a more powerful motor with high torque. and then as for tyres you will need a normal set of wheels but go to a hardware store and get some ABS/PVC pipe like you would use on gutters on your house and cut out circles the same width as your wheel and slide it on. this is only very vague description as i dont actually know EVERYTHING you would need cause i dont own one of these cars but i thought this would help you on your way.
