thanks guys. I thought all evos were awd but when you look up "evo drifting" on youtube a lot more evo 9s than any other evo show up

Yea Evo 9's are popular because they are plentiful relatively cheap and have the last of the great 4G63T with the MIVEC system. Many Drift spec evos have their front driveshaft removed to convert them to RWD. If you have ever driven an Evo you will know that in AWD trim it grips like it wants to tear tarmac off the road! Drifting an AWD Evo is dam near impossible lol!
