Cool! any pics?

How is it manoverable? can it "drift" on pavement?

the orange one is called a TMaxx and the black car is a TC3. both came with AWD but i removed the front driveshaft from the truck so i could do better wheelies. it handles like a dream. the TC3 is very difficult to control at higher speed. i have been into these things for about 6 six months now and there'* no way i can perform a controlled drift. it destroys tires like nobody'* business too. and it has NO off road capabilities.
