just some drift tires unless it came with em.
Other things to make it drift better will be to lock the rear diff, one way, the upgraded dogbones up front, and you can shave down C hubs for more steering angle. Also get softer springs

yup. locking the rear diff, and getting new suspension with soft springs makes all the difference with the Sprint 2. the stock Sprint 2 shocks and springs are no good for drifting. spring are way too hard and shocks aren't smooth enough IMO. A front one-way should help, but some people hate it. more steering angle will help, but an upgraded (faster) servo would be a better investment first.

on 50-50 cars I do not mind a slower servo, but a cs one will definitely need one

Yep, that pretty much sums it up, but you may also want to get some better electronics, I heard that RcMart has tons of combos that might be helpful. Or do you already have a good brushless system? If so, then I just recommend doing a front motor conversion. I hope it helped.

forgot to mention... pick up the castle link programmer, it'll help tremendously.

when your stock shocks start to leak (and they will) pick up some TRF's or Yeah Racing if on a tight budget.
