What i can say is that all of a sudden, tom, dick and harry wanna buy drift car.

As for me, a person driving such a car has no problem sorting out what car to buy for drifting...

Hi!, I would get an A31, since it's a saloon; can use it as my daily drive too. That's my next project car, but I hear that later models are prone to roof rust. Is this true?

Car Year : 1980

Your Comment on your first drift car : It's simply marvellous. Easy to maintain and cheap as well. But still got alot of things need to done up before starting to drift.Heheheh...coz i"m a newbie so everything learns from scrap.

Your suggestions to newbie : Get a budget car for learning then only carry on to next the next step.

Your Ultimate next/dream drift car : A Hachi...Hachi...Hachi...ROKUUUU.

Good day.

Firstly, please consider how old is the car. And yes, this depends on how the owner take care of the car. Ppl cant just simply say A31 always get rust here n there. Mine DONT'. The weather plays a lot in this situation. A31 are manufactured from end 1989' until early 1995, what do you expect from this. The technologies and sealent used at that time isnt as good as nowadays.

There are a few ways of solving this problem. Quite a work, but it definately works.

for me i would get a AE86 cos its lighter than A31 cheaper to maintain, easy to drift,if u mod the car good looking u might get to get a chick,lol
then if u can keep for another 10 years it might become a classic car and u can sell it at higher price$$$$:shades_smile:

Hie.

Sorry yea, but no offends. You seriously dunno what price these car's worth rite. Fyi, u have to mod a lot to have the horsepower for drifting dude. U have to drop in a lot of stuff ie Agung's head for this car to compete with turbine powered car. Its also not that easy to drift compare to others. Yes, one i agree is that this Toyota is one of the best built FR for drifting.

An AE cost more to to mod compared to the A31, in term of halfcuts, suspension abd others as well. You know how much the LSD cost. 4 time more compared to A31's. Body, u have lightened a lot k..

If you were at the D1GP, you'll know what i meant. Try asking around. Just cant simply compare a 2 door sport car vs a 4 door executive car..

well.. it's not fair to compare A31 with AE86. Trueno/levin 86 will always be the dream car for most of the drifters. why? because it's quick... it's nimble and it's blardy built for drifting! hehe

agreed with space_koboi about the parts thing. AE86 parts aren't cheap... haflcuts cost at least RM4k. suspensions are scarce unless u buy new. LSD cost a bomb... even the rear WHITELINE tail lights cost more than A31 red/clear tail light!

then again... it's a legendary car.... not just some car. u want it... u gotta be prepare to pay for it.

There is actually 1 continental car can do drifting as well. the Alfa Romeo 75, which is the one i'm driving now..

Model : Alfa Romeo 75.
Engine: 2.0 Twinspark (148HP & 19kg/m)
Weight distribution : 50/50 (becoz the gearbox located at rear side)
suspension setting : Front:Double wishbone, Rear:Dedion-setup
Transmission : 5 speed with LSD
Brake : Original 2 pot Brembo with ventilated disc

with the original LSD, it can drift like crazy if u know the tricks..

this is how it's look like.. but it's not mine... mine is not that well touch up...:cry_smile: :cry_smile: :cry_smile:

there's one prob.. this car comes with rubber couplings.. if u clutch kick it.. it'll break.. if u change to steel couplings.. the gearbox will break..

got the info from somebody who drives this car and attempted to drift it..

ya, this car come with rubber coupling so it CANNOT do 1st and 2nd gear drifting, especially pickup wheel spin, 3rd to 4th gear drifting is fine..

by the way, who's ur fren who driving this car also??

1st drift car...1st car that i own is the ae86 2nd is the s13 3rd is the 32 gtr...i would say the 86 is the best for beginners...as its easy to handle...johnny blaze can vouch for that as he had 1 before...s13 is ok but u have that understeer problem..the 32 is obviously better than the s13...

edit:after driving the 32 for awhile now...let me tell u...its heavy,power steering dont do much as im using 18 inch with 265/35/18 tyres.did try 2 wheel drive(just took the 4wd fuse out) to much power...its good in rain... over all ae86 is the best..now thinking to sell the skyline n get a series 8 rx-7

It's a tie between the S13 180SX/Silvia and the AE86es, although I would prefer the 180SX/Silvia more because it got some power to get the car off. You need to be quite good to utilize AE86's underpowerness by knowing when to use the gas pedal and when not to.

Rarity has its pitfalls...you must remember; when it comes to drifting, its not a matter of if ,it is a matter of when, in regards to accidents! So make sure your car isn't so rare that you cant find parts to replace when u do get into an accident!:regular_smile:

It's easy to get a cheap V8, just import in a cheap holden V8 from Australia. You can buy one for less than RM1000. Not sure on how much to ship it to Malaysia, but you are probably looking at spending around RM3000 to get a cheapish V8 from Australia.

rm1000 or rm3000???
r u sure bout tis???
coz i got survey b4 n i get da lowest is USD $2000-$4000 depend on condition n some of them include shipment as well....n another things is if u need to replace parts, u`ll have to order from other country n wait 4 shipment..tat already cost u time n $$$$ except u`ll really got $$$ in ur wallet lolz...but tat is not worthty 4 u do it....sometimes we must be wise n aware lol if not da mech will saying tis n other stuff to get our $$$ too....do choose a good alternative while consume less $$$....

Well I know you can pick up cheap 2nd hand V8's in Australia fairly cheaply. As for shipping, I'm not sure, so you're looking at anywhere from RM1000 to RM3000 to get a motor. Regarding parts, they are again cheap and plentiful from Australia. Only thing you really have to put up with is that dreaded shipping cost. Bur if you are looking at spending up to RM75k, it is very viable.
