    Hi guys!
    So it's been just over 3 years in the hobby now and my Volition is packing some serious punch now. I got the truck cos I knew it would take a battering and an on road car couldn't have survived this long. Now that I'm more experience with the hobby, I'm planning on building a on road drift/drag machine. I'm still a student so it'll need to be on a budget but currently I'm looking through chassis choices and these are the two I found...

    I cant really afford something on the Sakuras level, but I'm not sure how good the Reely chassis is going to be for me.
    The key thing I really want the system to do is to be able to hit 60+ mph range with the possibility of hitting the big 100, so it looks like a Castle system is what I'm going with for that.
    Any other parts that you guys could recommend?
    Thanks in advance ! :Grin:

    Are you looking for a dedicated touring car, dedicated drift car or a hybrid? It's important because you can't hit crazy top speeds with a drift setup.

    I suggest to save up and get a chassis with good reviews and parts availability. This will be beneficial in the long run.
