Default Rc drift car

Hey guys I am new to this rc thing and was wondering if anyone could tell me like what kind of rc car is best for drifting, modifications, and durability. I was looking at either the tamiya or hpi. My budget is $300 for everything. I don't really know the differences between them or anything, but if anyone could tell me exactly what i need I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

Both HPI and Tamiya are great RC manufacturers. You are headed in the right direction with either one. Tamiya usually sells scale/realistic kits. Meaning they are as close to the "real thing" as you can get, including light kits.
HPI makes a huge selection of bodies and they fit pretty much any RC out there. Just pay attention to the size.
I got a HPI e-10 for $160 at formula drift on sale at their tent. and its great starter drift car rite out of the box in my opinion. for the price you cant beat it on tower its $210. ...dont expect it to do anything but slide.........


Regards.

Both HPI and Tamiya are good for drifting but the Japanese regard the Tamiya TA-03F as the world's best RC drifter. Tamiya knows this and will be releasing the TA-03F Pro Drift Spec, You can also buy different bodies that you can put on the chassis & paint it with what graphics you want. They are in your price range.....
