Default WHAT CHASSIS FOR DRIFT + RACE

Hey guys iv recently bought an Exceed drift star rc car as a basic car to play with while i build my good one
which i havnt purchased yet...
I would like to Buy a Really Good chassis maybe even buy the chassis only and buy the engine etc...
at a later date... jus curious of what chassis you guys recommend... i want to drift and race the same car
Electric... not overly expensive... and a good drifter and racer at the same time?
any help greatly appreciated cheers

Eh , In my eyes those arn't cheap cars - Try n find yourself a cheap TC3 / TC4 /old losi xxx-s or some other kind of old carpet racer , Cheap - brilliant cars and can do both very well , And ofc im going to have to stick to the norm and recomend the tt01 , just such a great entry level car , HPI e10 could be worth while too.Hope this helps a lil

You can get the HPI E-10 for under $100 as a roller. The HPI Sprint 2 Drift goes for around $140 and is a step up from the E-10. I also started out with the Exceed RC and its a great little car once you get it set up properly. My only issue with it was that it was hard to change to 48pitch Spur gear. Good Luck with your search

In my eye's , no it wont be a good racer as it just doesnt cut the cake - If you want a racer , Ebay is your friend Tc4 on there now for about 30 pounds i think - and great all round cars , there's also Hotbodies cyclone , losi xx-s , Xray's , and a few nice TRF's on there .If you wanted soemtimng a little more pricey but that extra bit of performace there's the Mi3s / Mi3 pro? Xray T2 2009 / Tc5 , All great cars but once again very expensive.
Not so sure your ever going to be able to beat what you can find on Ebay , Worthwhile seeting up an account if you dont have one .
