Usually, for $169.00, you can only get a drift car platform without radio or electronics. Other than in the case of a close-out sale, you probably can’t even get an 1/10 Drift Car RTR. Even if you could, it’s probably going to be brushed, with an obsolete AM radio.

With HPI, Tamiya and Yokomo dominating the RC Drift Car segment, it seems like the eager budget-conscious drifter has NO CHANCE…. until now!
