HPI Racing R/C Drift Cars
Another popular brand is HPI Racing. To my knowledge they and Yokomo are the only companies that sold a nitro rc drift car.
Their cheapest models are the 1/10 E10 and 1/10 Sprint 2 Drift chassis. The E10 has a Mazda RX-7 or Toyota Trueno AE86 body. The Sprint 2 Drift has a Chevy 2010 Camaro or Nissan 350Z body.
