You cant drift a FWD !!!!


Yes you can. It just aint too good.


it's not drift, you just drive around with the E-brake on !!! :) lol The definition of drift is to be sliding before the apex of the corner and to maintain the slide beyond the exit of the corner (which you can't do in a FWD) and also you can't change your trajectory mid slide too much in a FWD either so no battles too !




LOL did you read the second and the last paragraph ? 1 " In Japan, there are front-wheel drive cars competing in the D1 Street Legal series and Keisuke Hatakeyama has competed in the Falken sponsored Honda Civic EF hatch in Formula Drift. They don’t win, but they are out there competing and having fun." They don't win !!!!! 2 " No one is going to mistake you for Drift King and you’re not going to be able to hold a long continuous sideways drift like a rear-wheel drive car, but you can have some fun." .....some fun !!!!!


Precisely. Read my earlier post again. I said they can but they aint too good. I had the opportunity to watch Tsuchiya himself test out a endurance Integra back home and he did a couple of drift runs when he was almost done. He was definitely breaking traction before the apex and going beyond. And since the drift king himself calls FWD sliding as drifting, I guess it settles it for the rest of us.


(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQMQkMvRG3I) is still crap ! I wouldn't call it drift !


but I do get your point !


what kind of car do you drive? i have drifted with FWD it has to be be slick out like after rain or in the snow...other than that it is pretty hard


Please stop watching movies like Fast and furious,e.t.c..they are just movies..reality is different.buy a RWD car and enjoy.Buy any car like Toyota Trueno AE86,Nissan Silvia s13,s14 or s15.e.t.c

yes you can, my first car was an 86 escort. i had to do a sliding 360 to avoid an oncoming car making a left in the winter. that how i do turns on wet or covered pavement. by the way i drive with 2 feet.
