How much do you like to work on your RC's? I love my Monster Energy Fiesta,Some say its not a hardcore drifter out of the box but I think it does well.You can always buy some drift tires and you really want it to slide uncontrollably. I've seen some really cool stuff from Tamiya,I know they like attension and must be worked on,Set-up is a must also.I'm not sure how I feel about the whole belt drive stuff either. So basically if ya just wanna charge batteries and drive get the Fiesta,If ya like to tinker and do the set-up get a Tamiya. Do your research,and ask yourself,"What do I want from my "drift"RC?".
