Fair enough. The funny thing, though, is people buy purpose-made drift tires for that kind of driving, but I can drift in circles and figure-8's with HPI Pro-compound tires -- and then take off like a shot in a straight line after exiting the drift, because the tires actually have traction.
Of course, in order to drift with grippy tires you have to go a lot faster, which I guess leaves less time for admiring your own driving.
Anyway, from what I can tell, drift cars work better when they have a more forward weight bias than a typical touring car has, and they can also benefit from mounting the battery on a platform above the center driveshaft so the car can still lean in corners despite having slippery tires that offer no traction.
