hsp flying fish vs. tamiya tt01d

i already have hsp flying fish and still loving it and im pretty confident on my drifting skills. i just want to know if tt01d is better than hsp drifter in any way. oh, and one thing i noticed in my hsp is that it is easier drifting to right than to the left.

Really? ... I have been looking at getting a RTR drift car and the flying fish seems to be a inexpensive way to get started. How long have you owned it? Is it holding up well? Where and what type of surface are you drifting on?

Thanks!

You'll want something with good parts support locally, not something you have to spend hours searching online to find someone that has the part, then waiting for it to arrive.

True, but if you live in an area where there is no hobby shop or not one that carries the brand you like anyway, like me, this is not an issue. I am used to getting all my stuff online. The good thing about the HSP cars is that they are the same brand as Redcat Racing, Exceed RC, and I think Banana Hobby has them as well. You can get parts domestically and overseas and even on ebay.

The Tamiya is the better model, but my local store does not stock parts for it.
