Building a driftcar. Suspension? wheels?

I finally got my rx7 FC running and i want a good FC on the track aswell on the road.
Im going to use it mutch on the tracks for drifting etc.
Im not interested in fixing up my engine yet(its a stock S4 T2 with 3" exhaust and microtech ECU)

What suspension, sway bars, bushings wheels, tires etc do you guys recommend?
I need to know what other ppl have used so im not going in totally blind :P

first do all the basic maintenance on the car.

then buy a helmet.

then go to a drift event and try drifting with the stock car. try to get tips from the more regular drivers. after you do a few events you should start to get a feel for what you want to start changing out. most people start with suspension, suspension bushings / arms and a more aggressive differential. on the FC you may want to look into the rear steering eliminator.

spare wheels + tires is always a good investment... you should start going through them pretty quick.
