    in my personal experience its not so much what you have under the hood, but its how you use. i have seen poeple show up to competitions with huge v8s and v10 that have been all tuned up but cant make even the simplist drifts while guys that have their moms car for the day are able so get themselves sideways quicker than anyone else.

    again its not so much what you have under the hood but how you use it.

    That is very true callmekrikit, a good driver can drift in pretty much anything although in the hands of a skilled drifter a higher powered car can pull longer drifts.

    id say depends on the track mountains youd definitely wana go small and light but if its a track or you just set up some cones and the track is bigger than a mountain road id go for powerful and heavy

    Personal favourite has got to be the S15 for the standard power, handling and look of the car, with a standard one of these you can just take it out and drift like its made for it, it might beat the AE86 but the 86 was the first real drift car, it handles so well and even though it dosnt have as much power i think thats better in a way because you perfect your drifting skills in an underpowered car and your not going to find one that can still compete with the big dogs the way an 86 can.

    So what are the basic needs? If a good drifter can do it in just about anything. Then what is absolutely needed? Is a locked rear differential essential?

    basic needs - a RWD car thats pretty much it. theres alot of arguements about whether or not FWD is drifting but well not get into that.

    Don't suppose it can be done in a FWD in reverse?

    no it can class FWD as drifiting but to me its alot of smoke and under steer so the basic requirements would be a RWD car

    In Australia, drifting is getting very popular. Most start off with a AE86 or S13 nissan silvia. The nissan would be my choice, cheap to buy, cheap to modify & old crappers can still be competitive against newer highly developed cars.

    240sx makes a great drift car also. Rear wheel drive, 2.4 single or double cam.

    At a recent drift day at our local circuit all of the drift cars were Nissans! Mainly 240, 200 and Skylines but I did see a nice 350z and a Stunning Silvia.

    Hi , In New Zealand we run, in the top D1 grade , Nissan Skylines, Silvia, Cefiro and the top guy runs a highly modified Mazda RX8 , with more drivers running V8s now compaired to a few years back. These cars are worth close to 100 Grand ,huge low down power and top end speeds ,all highly modified . The skill is to hit a corner at 200Ks side ways in full control , only a couple of metres behind the car in front , chasing him thru several right and left corners to the end of a set run. If thats not skill i don't know what is . Cheers DAVE
