I am going to be racing and drifting. I race at local shops sometimes but mostly drift with friends on wood floors. I want to know whats best.

If racing with an MR-02 is way better i would be willing to put in the hours to tune and practice drifting with two wheel drive.

Or do you think i should just buy two cars because the setups would be so different. I would only be able to buy one right now though so thats what i would prefer

any tips are appreciated.

If drifting is gonna be a good portion of your mini-z time i'd get the AWD.

The MR02 definitely is easier to tune and get going good but if you're gonna run stock racing, the AWD with a good set of tires handles very well and will be competitive.

thanks i was leaning towards the mr-10 anyway. i would like to race more often but me and my friends just find it easier to drift around tables and chairs than set up a race track.

The MA-010 can also be a very good racer. It's a drifter for sure though. Get an MA-010 and make sure it's the SP kit. You want the one that has the blue chassis and bearings.

MR01 is not the MA010 to clear up the typos and or confusion above.

thanks for the tip. on another website i saw two chassis an all black one and one with blue parts. they said the blue parts were more durable

yeah the black chassis your referring to is very fragile, the blue/grey chassis so far seems to be very durable

As a general rule of thumb, the solid color chassis across the board are generally stronger than the clear ones. The smoke chassis that comes stock on the MA-010 tends to like to crack up front so take everyone's recommendation and go for the blue/grey chassis.
