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.

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

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?

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.
