it all depends on what they run in your local track. But personally ill go for the fxx since RWD is more realistic and way more fun

Isn't RWD harder to learn than AWD?

Actually no, learning curve the same. Cs is the hardest. Honestly I think 4wd 50/50 and rwd are on par. Gyro takes effect for rwd really helping anyone new to rwd. As you get better you just turn down the gyro. But if you come from 4wd then go to rwd. It's just different and opposite and vise versa.

It was harder for me to make donuts on a 4wd then a rwd.

Agreed. To me RWD has a much bigger payoff when it comes to driving, tuning, and the overall experience of RC drift. I'd go with the FXX. There is a wealth of tuning options for that platform and it is a really fun car to drive.

the things is that when you run cs and you want to make the jump to RWD your going to have to "learn'' again how to drift. at least thats what happened to me. The way you run a CS is different than a RWD

Wouldn't have that problem. currently running a Sprint 2 50/50. Pulled the front belt just for the heck of it. Had tons of oversteer but then it's setup for 4WD 50/50 so I really wasn't expecting much but it was interesting.
