Default what car can handle brushless

Im looking at my first on road car, mostly for drifting or high speed runs.
After reading some post i found out that shaft driven is better for torq and drifting and belt driven is better for smooth driving.
So my question is, do most models have the capability to handle brushless power. Like the the higher end models like tc5 or some high end tamiya kit.
If you guys be kind to list some cars that can handle brushless that would be great.
Thanks.

Yes.
Most cars can handle brushless stock or a few hop ups to the transmission and they can handle it.

The TC3 and TC4 can handle brushless and both of them are shaft driven. As can the Xray cars but them are belt driven.

cool
Thanks.
Also im running 1/8th electric and dont know the specs for 1/10 electric.
will 36mm diamter motors fit them but with shorter length. Cause i will probably go with a mamba setup and they have 36 mm motors.

Yes, the Mamba Max motors will fit in the TC3's, TC4's and Xray's.

Just as a note here... any car can handle brushless. You need to be a bit more specific. For instance, a 17.5t stock brushless is about the same as a 27t brushed which is what a lot of on road cars come with stock. A 3T brushed motor is much faster than a 7.5t brushless.

The great benefits of brushless are the better efficiency and lower maintenance, any rc car would benefit regardless of how fast you want to go.

If you're talking a 5700kv motor on 3S lipo then that's another matter entirely.
