Tamiya TT-01E Drifter?

What would it take to turn a TT-01E chassis into a drifter? The D model cost $75 more and I'm wondering if that is really worth it. I don't have a car, but I am interested and would like to know all I can on this particular chassis.

Check the specs, a lot of the D cars have more upgraded parts as well. My TT01ED came with full bearings, headlights/module, the black can hotter motor and adjustable upper suspension arms.

If you don't care about those extras, you just need drift tires (hard plastic) on any touring car and you'll be off drifting.

That's all I needed to know. I don't care for all the extra parts. If I would want to upgrade, I would just get an aluminum upgrade set.

Aluminum parts are actually worse, and most of the aluminum suspension parts don't have adjustable upper arms.

IMO, get the full bearing kit before building it, as well as the aluminum prop (center) shaft. It's a pain to tear it down to replace the bushings with bearings, and the stock plastic prop shaft will wobble and make noise while rubbing on the chassis.
