if you have a bit of a long search around you will find theb asics that need to be done
locked diffs and a good higher turn motor and abs or drift tyres and that should get you going
of course you will need all the basic stuff like esc, battereis charger transmitter reciever and the item above

even more reason to do a long search um i made apost awile ago about diffs basically there full name is a differential and they distribute power from a single imput and out to the left and right wheels

and they can be open, locked or fitted with a limited slip diff (lsd)
lsd's are fitted in 1:1 cars

basically an open diff allows the power to be completly distributed to one wheel that is connected to the diff
but a locked diffs means both wheels spin at the same rpm and there comes the term "locked"

in normal cornering one wheel needs to spin faster than the other
because when cornering the other wheels has to travel further than the inside wheel when cornering

to allow this to happen the out side wheel needs to do more rpm to keep up with the inside wheel

now with an open diff if one wheel breaks traction the other wheel will loose power and in most normal cases of 1:1 cars stops the car from spinning out but it still can spin out if some one is really pushing the car

with a locked diff that means both wheels are spinning the same rpm there for in theory they cant turn becuase the out side wheel wont be able to go around that greater distance and keep up with the inner wheel


now in drifting this helps because of the tyres we use that offer little to no grip the tyres brake traction becuase the car is trying to turn but the wheels want to go straight

and to drift if you can brake traction easilly it helps alot

i can explain this much more than i have try looking into one of those howdoesitwork websites

cheers
