Getsideways - there are atleast 3 or 4 of getting together to drift this Sunday the 8th. Shoot me a PM if your interested in stopping by.

Most of the local shops normally carry the sprint 2. Our local valley group (Speed Junkies AZ chapter) has a big variety of chassis running. Everything from my Frankenstein build, yokomos, d3, and more. I would recommend deciding which style of drifting your after ie: 50/50, Counter steer, or RWD. Then pick a chassis based on that style. Just don't get an e10, Lol. We have 2 of them great for kids but not for anyone that wants to try and dial in their drifter, very limited aftermarket parts selection imho.

If you go the MST route there is an awesome site ( blackstarhobbies.com) they have a lot of the parts and ship fast. They are based in Florida, I live in NM and I get my stuff from them in about 3 days, around 4 as of late due to that snow/ice storm going through the areas in that direction.
