Default converting my street force

ok, i used to race electrics, i had a custom turned motor in a...homebuilt fiber chassis, recently i bought a nitro car, i bought the duratrax street force GP2, i want to start drift racing with it, so my plan was to make my own ABS/PVC tires and install them on my stock streetforce wheels, I'm buying a box of replacement clutches, i don't know how well this will work, but i don't have the money to buy a new electric, or repair my old one, i want to keep my nitro car because i use it for dragging as well, will i need to tune the engine differently for drifting than dragging, if so what needs to be changed?

thanks

--EDIT--

also when drifting, does the engine get the same cooling, because the wheels will be spinning with alot less traction and i guess they might be free spinning... thats alot of RPMs, is there a way to give proper cooling the engine besides running without a body?

also, can you do the same kind of drifting as they do in the SG videos with the electrics, with a nitro?

i looked for tuning for drifting but i didnt find anything, i guess its just a standard setup, just the wheels matter? (besides camber and all that)
