I started with plastic tub chassis tt01 like maybe most of the guys here even some good drifters at that time used them. Then upgraded to a trf chassis tb evo 5 which is much more responsive ofcours and more setup options. And with everyone moving forward to counter steering I have to switch to yokomos mr4tc-sd tub chassis which has a lot of options for overdrives.

If you would notice all of them are shaft drive kits and they all served me well. Nothing beats shafties when it comes to drirect torque response hehe. But in the end its all up to you, a lot of practice is the main thing here whatever chassis you end up with very happy

If you want to move to cs drifting soon then better get belt driven kit, you can get pulley locally (extreme hobbies) and you'll have more option in terms of pulley combination to get the percentage you want.

You can get cs kit also for shaft kit but i think you have limited option in terms of percentage or better ask the shafty driver here, Jay and Caloyski.

For the plastic or cf, theres a difference in price so if budget is not a problem then get the cf kit.

Plastic has it's advantages, and so does alloy. Plastic costs less, but is more flexible.

Alloy parts don't flex as much. But sometimes alloy suspension can bend, and it's very hard to notice. However, it will effect your driving until you replace it.

Shaft driven chassis tend to be stiffer, while belt driven ones can sometimes flex. But since you're likely to end up doing CS mods, I suggest you get a belt driven kit unless you're getting a Yokomo. In which case CS mods aren't an issue.

If you've got a fixed budget for the chassis, tell us, we can shorten down your list of possible kits. (That rhymes).

CS is now the way to drift.
Overdiving your car, where the rear wheels spin faster than the front's, will require you to counter-steer during a turn.

And yeah, it's a lot easier to modify a belt-driven kit to overdrive in terms of stepping up or down its ratio. There are available OD gears for shafties as well - Tamiya TT -01, TB-03 and the Yokomo one. They're ratios are 'fixed' though. Only a few of us got overdriven shafties.. very happy

So, get your kit already. Let's get sliding!
