I believe a lot of members out there would like to know what car would be the most suitable first drift car.....and we do get a lot of curious public who wants to know about it in every event...so...drifters out there..do share your experiences and give your comment on your first drift car....I will also put a poll up and do let me know if I missed out any common drift car...within the budget of (RM10k - RM 70k).....I mean common one lah...i won't put the rare type like nissan laurel c33....hehehe...:wink:

Please try to follow the guideline as below to make it easier to read...thank you very much...:tee: :

Your Comment of your first drift car : I LURVE IT. Chicks LURVE it. Drifters LURVE it. haha
Your Suggestions to newbie. read below


Ke70 if on a budget. but need a few k more o put in AE86 running gear. Engine diff suspension bits.

AE 86 if you want an Icon. Tho drifting a grip crazy car like the AE86 takes more effort. Too much grip too little power. not to mention upping the power of the 4AGE not cheap. TRD suspension stuff oso not cheap. Bushes , dampers, springs from TRD cost me RM6k.

Cefiro if you want big sedan. Turbo RB25 practically drift ready.

Though ultimately the 180SX with SR20DET is the ultimate. Coupe style, easy to mod turbo engine and NISMO parts and jap parts are plenty.


In an ideal world I'd have a AE86 with TODA built 200bhp engine and TRD complete suspension and a clean interior. and an S15 to take chicks out. hahaha

Your Comment of your first drift car :

A world of difference between the R32 and the C33. C33 shares the same platform as the A31 therefore making it one of the most suitable drift car. I am glad to have the C33 as my first drift car. Parts are easy to find (except the rear lights)....hehehe...and to bring the tail out is very easy once you know how to dump the clutch at the right time....and the car is very forgiving as in if you know the car about to spin..you can still slowly control it....the next to improve is the driver....hahaha....not aggresive enough...:frown:

Your Suggestions to newbie :

I fully recommend the newbie for a Cefiro with RB20DET Manual....if you have extra cash..then op for a RB25DET (but engine very susah to find loh)...get a 2-way LSD...good sets of suspension and camber kits...you are ready to roll liao...

A good example of our fellow drifters like Ah Fai who started with a RB20det A31 (1.5 way LSD) has a 1 and a half year experience, Aibon also a RB20DET A31 (1.5 way LSD) with only 6 months experiences and also Space_Cowboy also a RB20DET A31 (2 way LSD) with only 2 months of experiences...look how good they are right now.....keep up the good work guys.... :cool:

My ultimate dream drift car would be a ER34 4 Door....:tongue: .....I love big cars...hehehehe...

Your Comment of your first drift car : Nissan S13 180SX - That car brought back memories....Having a 180SX is something new to me almost 10 years ago as I am more of a track person, driving GC8 rex, Honda Civic EG6, etc...Well...drifting is really fun....kekekeke :p

Your Suggestions to newbie : Anything that you are comfortable with...if I have 40,000 to spend...I will send 20K on the car and 20K on the mods....kekekeke :p

Honestly, my fav drift car would be a 4-door sedan like Toyota Chaser, Toyota Aristo, Toyota Celsior LS430 etc.....Some huge sedans....

If I got an opportunity, I might want to do an old Mercedes Benz W124 E200 Sedan drift car with Cosworth Racing look, use RB25DET engine inside....or BMW E30 Sedan using RB25DET....kekekeke :p

Something different...

Imperial Concepts have a W124 (1986 Model). It is quite good condition as it has been always maintained well.

It is quite low as we have slam down the suspension with Bilstein Suspension and it has WALD V4 Aerokit.

If we swap a RB25DET into this fellow....kekekekeke... can be quite a car to watch and drift...mercedes in standard has very good steering angle and lots of castor in the front...kekeke...So MB has already thought of drifting many years ago ?

Kekekeke :p Well.....let's see ! Perhaps we might do it.....kekekeke :P

Your Comment of your first drift car : Stick to road like Glue
Your Suggestions to newbie :
Your Ultimate next/dream drift car : R33

Frankly speaking. I have not really drifted hard before, mostly just for a turn or two. Knew the techniques but most of the time dream to drift like a pro. Well, sad to say, still waiting for someone to show me the light... I have asked my Sifu to show me the way but... hmm... well...

Anyway, my first FR was a Bimmer. God dam, the car is so good, just won't want to drift. It sticks to the ground like glue with the set of Bilstein and CSC II. But that doesn't stop me from forcing it to go side ways... hahha.. and thanks to my friend too.. Drifted without me knowing on 1st gear. ... hahha..

But now, my mission is to do up my R33. Its drift ready by now but its me that is not ready... hhahah...

Your Comment of your first drift car :
needs fast steering response to drift, also only has a small margin of error. hard to catch up with other cars.... maybe its my tires or maybe my balls not big enough? hahaha

Your Suggestions to newbie :
get a drift car that doesn't double as your daily car. and also not a car that you feel the pain if it gets scratched or dented... after that drift your heart out :D

Your Ultimate next/dream drift car :
180sx because of intermediate wheelbase (not too long not too short), not too heavy, more power, more steering angle, doesn't break as much, relatively cheaper parts.... plus lots of mean looking aero kits!!

donno la guys... for 4 door cars the body strength just doesn't feel right to me. need to do a lot of enhancing. track car cannot say la, but daily drift car... uhm... :P​

Your Comment of your first drift car : Very nimble, easy to tail out when u get the settings right.. Short wheel base so not much room for error.. Enough power generated by the 15+ years old engine... LSD standard but does the job well..

Your Suggestions to newbie : Get a cheap car and do the necessary mod like LSD, engine and suspension setup. Then straightaway go drift.. you are gonna bang the car sooner or later.. might as well leave the bodywork as it is first.. After u done extensive styling, u'll hold back coz afraid bumper break.. big a** intercooler dented or even ur original VR, Work, Gram lights or any expensive rims dented coz hit divider or anything.. Keep it simple at 1st.. once you are capable of handling ur car.. then got some xtra dough.. u can mod it to fit the D1 liveries.. ur call..
Your Ultimate next/dream drift car : hmm... maybe get a cefiro or a silvia.. anything that is proven driftable...

Dunno if Jerry modded his rack and toe links... but my AE86 steering angle quite a lot too.

But since its " A Real Man's Car*" steering a bit haevy and a skinny fella like meself sometimes not quick enough to counter steer, hence the endless spins.

Hehehehe....anyway....drift no need to be expensive or cheap...as long pocket can afford...plus the driver himself must feel good playing with it....

Just look at this pic :



A small little Toyota Starlet can even make it to the top 16 position in D1 race in this year April's Odaiba event....

So no worries...must important word is FUN too serious and work up over drift, the fun factor will ping and damaged.......

If low budget, Toyota Corolla KE70 is best choice for 1st drift car.

SPare parts can get easily and can use performance parts from AE86.

THe only problem is the car is quite aged and may require a body welding and patching.

I'd have to go with S14 as the ultimate drift machine. had a chance to try a slightly tuned S14 yesterday during shah alam drift session.. it was awesome! can't wait to get one of my own.

anyway, for a budget drifter, go with Ke70 or something like it. if got a bit more, then go with A31. I myself started with R32 and changed to A31 later. found out that A31 is damn easy and forgiving chassis... which is very suitable to learn drifting.

In memories of the great drift pioneer, (an Italian, mind you) Tazio Nuvolari. It was the first ever recorded drift in history by Enzo Ferrari who passenger Nuvolari in the races making him the first to master the four wheel drifting skill. Viva Italia!

here is a bit of that history for your info ;) read on...

"Through the years the Scuderia Ferrari would employ such great drivers as Giuseppe Campari, Louis Chiron, Achille Varzi and the greatest of them all Tazio Nuvolari.Except for Nuvolari's great victory in the 1935 German Grand Prix, victories in any of the major races were few and far between. During these years his team faced the German might of Auto Union and Mercedes. On one occasion Ferrari had the opportunity to passenger the great Nuvolari. At the trials on the "Three Provinces" Circuit, when he asked his companion (Ferrari was also driving there with a more powerful car than the Mantuan's) to take him with him. It should be added that Nuvolari did not know that circuit. "At the first bend," Ferrari writes, "I had the clear sensation that Tazio had taken it badly and that we would end up in the ditch; I felt myself stiffen as I waited for the crunch. Instead, we found ourselves on the next straight with the car in a perfect position. I looked at him," Ferrari goes on. "His rugged face was calm, just as it always was, and certainly not the face of someone who had just escaped a hair-raising spin. I had the same sensation at the second bend. By the fourth or fifth bend I began to understand; in the meantime, I had noticed that through the entire bend Tazio did not lift his foot from the accelerator, and that, in fact, it was flat on the floor. As bend followed bend, I discovered his secret. Nuvolari entered the bend somewhat earlier than my driver's instinct would have told me to. But he went into the bend in an unusual way: with one movement he aimed the nose of the car at the inside edge, just where the curve itself started. His foot was flat down, and he had obviously changed down to the right gear before going through this fearsome rigmarole. In this way he put the car into a four-wheel drift, making the most of the thrust of the centrifugal force and keeping it on the road with the traction of the driving wheels. Throughout the bend the car shaved the inside edge, and when the bend turned into the straight the car was in the normal position for accelerating down it, with no need for any corrections." Ferrari honestly admits that he soon became used to this exercise, because he saw Nuvolari do it countless times. "But each time I seemed to be climbing into a roller coaster and finding myself coming through the downhill run with that sort of dazed feeling that we all know."

Your Comment of your first drift car : do not have one but i do power slides with my mum's kelisa on rainy days somewhere in the neighbourhood ;) but would like to experiement on all drivetrains though...

Your Suggestions to newbie : I'm a newbie myself so i would suggest pray for rainy days to practice and find an opening or a safe area to...go crazy... (have tried to drift with company's Suzuki ERV before too, pretty scary but capabled nonetheless heheh)

Your Ultimate next/dream drift car : Haven't got a clue as i haven't tried all of 'em to know their slippery characteristics though. But in terms of doing it sideways and look good at doing it, i would like to go sidewinding bonkers with a rare car...the likes of a old skool vw beetle or a karman ghia ;)

Your Comment of your first drift car : Very well balanced, great low and midrange power, max torque comes in at about 4000rpm (and that's a good thing), changes directions with ease
Your Suggestions to newbie : I don't recommend drifting in the wet as that is very dangerous and you would lose control of the car easily. Find an open spot, put a cone in the middle of it, and practice making circles. Once you get used to it, practice controlling the size of the circle, and after that the figure 8..

Drift NewBie

Hi there all,

I am new to professional drifting. I have a Toyota Celica 1985 RWD which used to be an Automatic(Looks like an AE86 but is much wider). I used to drift with the Auto Gearbox on the sand and i got a hang on how to drift with the help of Tsuchiya (Drift Bible) and really love it.

The problem I am having is I recently changed my Toyota's powerplant to a 1JZ GTE (2.5 litre TT) from a Supra. I managed to get the Supra's subframe and rear differential installed with LSD but i am not sure of the tire size for my car. I have no one to advise me. I already bought 1 set of Enkei RPO1 16" the front is 7 inch wide and the rear is 8 inch wide and i managed to get Yokohama 16" 215/50 series tires for the front and 16" 235/50 series tires for the rear and i am ok with this setup for my normal daily use. the part i am unsure of is when i want to go drifting for example join a SSO or maybe go for a drift practice in Batu Kawan what tires should i use. I tought of getting my self another set of rims which are 7 inches wide for example 16" 205/50 for the front and rear. DOes this work? waht do you guys use when u guys are dirfting. Do i need to get another set of rims similar to my current ones or can i use the rims with 7 inch width for both front and back. Please help. An example of how my car looks is attached

Your Comment of your first drift car : This car is my first MT car, my grandfather's car. I use it to practice driving when I was 10. My Dad using it until now. Well, it is really old and underpower(100bhps) for driffing, so I will only use it after a rainning, for drift.

Your Suggestions to newbie : You got old car with rear wheel driving it, use it. Change to a better rear wheel until you find yourself is telented in this. Suspension and tires pressure determine your drifting as well as horse power.

Your Ultimate next/dream drift car : Still my 125, maybe turbo kit and better suspension will help! hehe.. :regular_smile:

Hie Guys.

Car Make & Model : Nissan Cefiro A31
Car Year : 1992

Your Comment on your first drift car : It's simply marvellous. Was really amazed by how this huge Dinasour can perform in taking turns and corners, manuvering left n right with just a 2000cc turbo charged engine. And with speed too. Furthermore, can drive comfortably to work, meeting up clients, chill outs, 'tecker' gals.. Its the ultimate 'EXECUTIVE' Drift car. Lastly, the parts and modifications are cheap too. Hmm.. wonder who said A31 cannot drift..

Your suggestions to newbie : Get a car ur comfortable with, either budget or driving. Dont be to hard on yourself by showing to others what you cant afford. Go slow, time will come. Take it easy on the car and your wallet.

Your Ultimate next/dream drift car : A four door car with 100% Drift set up, hidden of course. And of course a Nissan.


cheers'

Hi! Guys,

I'm a newbie in dirfting. Need advise from someone setting up an old 1982 Toyota Corona.
Recommendation and critics are welcome.
Can't afford any other cars so have to settle for this!

Thanks in advance.

o'skool...

rear axle can use AE86 or if you're planning to turbocharged it, use A174 lancer LSD.

i believe the best engine for this car is the 20V BT mated with AE86 gearbox.

some people put in 1JZ but that hurts the car balanced and will understeer madly.

if u asked me, i'd suggest CA18det or SR20DET... easy power. hehehe...

but.. like i said, 20V BT... coz i've seen one in your kinda car b4. it's darn powderful!

Thanks a million Topui 11,

I thought the body for the corona is a bit heavy for 20V BT (1.6 if I'm not mistaken).

I also heard that there is one with 1JZ in drift competition before?

Where do you guys hang out? I'm in Subang area.

Thanks again.

there will be an old skool drifters gathering soon. i suggest u come along and hang out. anyway, our usual hang out is at Dharoos, Uptown on Fridays, around 10pm to late. hehehe..

PM me if u wanna come out and TT.

i believe your car is the TT132, rite? i got a friend running 20V ST before on that car, and it's quite ok actually. now he got SR20det in there. there's also another guy from selayang with SR20det in his TT132. a friend on mine from seremban running 1G-GTE in his TT132. There's also one otai from setapak with RB20det in his TT132. hehehe

the one u mentioned should be Ah BOY from USJ, dark brown TT132 with 1JZGTE. damn scary oooo.

consider this, old chassis, powerful engine... can tahan or not? hehehe
