    why is it that the irish seem to have so many 86's? on the lookout for a 200sx or one of the silvia range. any clue on how much insurance is for one of them? bearing in mind i only got my license this year.

    They are pretty lucky there - they are like hens teeth in Kent. I guess they probably don't rust away as much in Ireland.

    If you got your licence this year I am guessing you are quite young, would an MX5 not be much cheaper on the insurance for you? You must be looking at a couple of thousand to cover an SX! :shock:

    Hi.
    I am not drifting yet,but i am building a drifter step by step.
    Beside mazda i am working with Mitsubishi Starion 2.0T Narrow body.
    Because i am a student i don`t have lots of money so i can build slowly.
    There are much to do,this Starion/Starquest is 1982 year. and not so bad shape, it has less rust then my mazda have.

    Hi I'm, Joe, and I drive a 1966 Beetle with stock suspension, and while easy to drift, it is also VERY easy to tailspin. But once you get the hang of it, it's definitely a fun/cheap car to drift. At the moment, with the stock suspension, I can't ever get much of an angle, but hopefully I'll be lowering it, and upgrading to coilovers.

    It's definitely something nobody ever expects to see drifting.
