you have no idea what a "badass" drift car base would be, so dont even THINK about getting an rx7, you will have NO idea how to keep it running properly, dont even get me started on them. I love them, and they are not a car to be taken lightly.

drifting is worthless bandwagon. just go get a 240. bandwagon has inflated their price, but hey, then you have a 240!

or a miata. go laugh, but if you actually paid attention to drifting, some of the best use miatas.

mustang. seriously, anything RWD will drift, it all depends on your ability to do it, so just go buy anything RWD.

/me @ not talking .. I used to do it in highschool but that was in trucks in fields and pastures out in the country :icon_bigg I didnt have the disadvantage of growing up in the city... it is alot of fun to slide around in the mud or through a field and play cat and mouse... so i would think it would be fun on pavement in a car also, but i would go with american made cars...

bikes
cars

just my .02

i remember the good old days when shittalkers would disvow bubba drift, because they enjoyed getting choked on the of the 240, and smeering its all over their face. It was the only serious talking I would do to someone in person because I knew bubba would become something special. You dont find those anymore.

Mostly because those spineless then became bubba drift bandwagoneers.


I ran into a group of those drifter f4gs at my local pub a few days ago. I was slighty intoxicated, and was talking numerous loud about them, and nothing happend to me. (or maybe they just didint hear me well enough )
