Hey Rob, welcome to RCDrift.org & RC Drifting, yeah I have a HPI sprint 2 it was my first drift chassis they look pretty cool in Anodised orange mines from back in the purple days
its a good chassis to learn with pretty much trouble free only problem I had with mine was the rear belt wearing through but you get that eventually especially if drifting outside but thats the only problem I had with it in the 5 years Ive owned it, pretty minor really.
The chassis can be set up for CS pretty easily as well.
That link you put up , thats a good deal for a Brand new RTR kit , all you'll need to do is lock the diff otherwise its got all the looks, power & handling ability to get you started in RC drifting, it comes with touring car rims and tires (the silver rims) & Drift rims & tires (3mm front & 6mm rear TE37 And replica Falken Azenis Tdrift tires sweet!!) all you will need to get you going is some Batteries & a charger. Maybe look at saving 2 to 300 dollars if you want some lipos & a charger it can be done cheaper you just have to shop around.
