    If it says RTR all you should need are batteries. I was gonna suggest one of the Tamiya cars. The Subaru Drift Spec. They run $130 for the kit. The kit includes an ESC and motor. You can then find a decent Futaba 2CH for about $80. This will include a steering servo and reciever. After that you will need a bettery and charger. Good sport packs can be had for about $20 if you shop around. Chargers will run from $20 to $300. The charger is one place not to skimp on as it will get a lot of use and can help you batteries last longer over time. Her are some links that may or may not help.

    This is the charger I use for my car packs...

    I hope this helps. I am new to drifting but I do know cars pretty well. These are just starting points and the world is your oyster to shuck and slurp down with Tobasco.
