any nitro car can drift even 2wdrive but i recommend to get a 4 wdrive cause its easier
just put drifting wheels and ll be fine
im drifting with a Kyosho fw-05tPlus but i wouldnt recommend it cause parts r a ***** to get in the USA
http://www.hpiracing.com/kitinfo/10071/ is good but get the 2 speed conversion thingy
Mainhobbies is the cheapest i think http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/20857 (I like the how the smoke comes goes out the bak

There's no need to get the drift kit. Just any on road car can drift with proper tires on proper surface.

I think D-boxes are about $80
And what they do is they sense the car sliding and countersteer for your (so you don't spin out)
I don't know how effective these are though
