Default Good Starting Drifting Car???

what would be a good starting RC drifting car?? my friend who has Yokomo Drift cars (the electric and nitro cars) says i should go with the Nitro Drifting D1 S15 for my first car. is that a good company to go with? and what type of car would be best for a beginer to RC drifting with cars like that? i mean ive attempted to drift my xmod NSX but it doesnt work and im tired of it and im hooked on the nitro drifting cars because they drift a lot easier. so what type would be the best to go with first? Nitro or Electric? thanks

tt-01. electric. strong. go good stock. get a alloy drive shaft, full ball bearing and torquey motor and some drift tires and it will go a treat.

Good point. Being annoying > not posting, I thought since everyone else does it with their lack of grammar and inability to use spell check.

true but reposting happens all the time and some people just got to the foum and just was so eager to jump in with everybody they wanted to start posting, and not read every post about the topic.
No pun intended

wow your such a sterotype yove got a lot of time on your hands to think all that up....pathetic...and skateboarders dont all smoke pot, flunk school, have long hair, or have a lot of pimples on their faces dude get a life and come out of the closet sometime and take a look around and see how the world has changed....and the whole gammar thing hello im 15 i could care ****ing less about how i type on the comp ok? it doesnt matter yet if its for school im just as good at typing as you are on here ok? i just dont care how i type to friends or others and with the battery packs do tell me how they died on my friendin the cold??? i though you said cold was good? well it obviously wasnt there and his packs were full charged it looks like you just got owned yes?? cold is bad heat is good and it shows when you run cars like Xmods and anyother car heated batteries offer more voltage and mah's but for a shorter period of time cold batteries offer nothing for no time actually get some experience with this stuff also before you try and tell someone they are wrong and yea you were using improper grammer in your post also....the "!QUOT!" THERE ISNT SUPPOSED TO BE AN EXCLAMATION MARK IN FRONT OF IT AND ITS MISS SPELT DONT TALK ABOUT PEOPLE NEEDING TO USE BETTER GRAMMER IF YOU CANT EVEN FIND A BIG MISTAKE LIKE THAT

OI BACK OFF CSSDEV!![:@][:@][:@] what do you do for a living. because does not matter what the hell you do because your arrogant.i am acctually quite insulted on how you think skaters are all the same the reason we skate is expression of what we love same with rc.just because you live near a skate park does not mean you know how we think and look.but the main think is..go down to that skate park and say exactly what you just WROTE you would not get out of there alive.oh and the smoking pot think.pot slows down reflexes and reactions now to be a good skater you need good reflexes why would be deminish these reflexes by smoking pot...hmm flunking school last i remember oh yeah i aced every class.wow it must have been my short hair and glasses that made me pass[:-]now if every body would serch this in the search function we could all see that cssdev is immature and has too much time on his hands and thats why he can afford to be rude to the REAL rc driver who all have respect towards each other thats why this forum is here for people with questions to learn and become more involved in the hobby we spend so many hours doing.
oh and by the way cssdev does not even own an rc haahahahahahahahahaha
