I am a newb too....but from what I have read, you want to keep as much weight towards the front as possible. It appears that the pack and other heavy items are towards the rear. I am sure other more experienced people will chime in.

Good luck...I am looking to pull the trigger on a newb drifter too.

URC

It will drift fine with the stick motor.

The MSC that comes with it will eventually need to be changes to a ESC unit ill get you a link

Just put some ABS on thr tires and slide it

Get 50mm internal ABS it shoud fit the rims with a little heat
