Re: New to drifting

The sprint 2 drift , either brushless or brushed , is an awesome combo to start off comes with everything you need

Really loved that platform! they have been doing them for years , or on a tighter budget the e10 does the job well!

Re: New to drifting

I would go with a Tamiya TT01E Drift Spec kit. Tamiya's are faster, quicker, have better servo's than HPI, and are much easier to customize as there are 100's of aftermarket add-on's available, especially for drifting. I have 2 E10's, a Sprint 2 with brushless conversion and 3 TT01E's, and 3 TT01ED's and the Tamiya's are definitely better straight out of the box than an E10. E10's have annoying front hub/screw setup and the shocks are a pain because the only thing you can use are the HPI upgrades and they are not that great. Aluminum upgrade arms,etc on an E10 don't do much, trust me. Sprint 2 is a good car, but the little triangle hole in the bottom of the chassis lets rocks in when drifting and you will keep having to replace the belt, which in my opinion is a lot of work on that particular car. With a Tamiya Drift kit, you get full bearings, hotter 25T motor with 19T pinion and heat sink, oil filled shocks that aren't bad for stock units and better tires for drifting than the HPI ones. I like HPI, and I have 5 of their products, but after getting into Tamiya and Kyosho, I am done with HPI products just because in comparison they are simply not as well engineered and are slower and don't handle as well. The stock ESC on a Tamiya is better for drifting than the one from the E10. I am using an HPI ESC from a Sprint 2 in a custom built TT01D, and it overheats like crazy, even using an HPI 27T motor. I have to replace this with a Tamiya TEU105 ESC and 25T Sport Tuned motor soon, but I am just seeing what this setup will do first. Just my opinion, but I have built 6 drift cars so far, and I'm getting pretty familiar with them.
