What's a good drift car from the 70's & 80's?
do not include the
japanese cars only
you can drift with leaf springs right?
you can drift with leaf springs....there is no law against it:laughing: :doh:
Id say the Ae86, not too expensive, good on gas I would guess
and can be made really fast.
I think they look great too, especially the hatchback ones
He said not to include the AE86, cant think why though.....I'd probably pick that one, too!
prove that ANY
i myself like the 1st generation celica
the reason why i ask the question bout the leaf springs and drifting is that it looks like the leaf springs look like they dont flex as well as coil overs, they look like they wont make the car slide very well, just grip
thats what i think though
I have to agree, Celica Supra MKI's and MKII's would make good drifting
platforms given your criteria.
What about a Skyline R32 GTS-T platform?? I believe the GTS came in a FR layout as opposed to the FA layout found in the GTR. That would make an awesome drifting machine. :2cents:
Nice, I can't believe I forgot about the Datsun :doh: .
In FWD its called ass-dragging
I guess I worded it wrong, any RWD/AWD vehicle can drift, and any FWD vehicle can ass drag (with some modifications lol)...
My car can't even ass drag. My parking brake is the rear calipers.
Every car I've ever seen has the parking brakes in the rear.
Can't believe you missed out the FC3S
Citroen put the handbrake operation on the front of some of it's cars, for example, the Xantia! Only trouble is that you could apply the handbrake at the top of a hill after just having driven it, and it would be at the bottom of the hill when you return to it, because the operation is on the disc/pad setup and obviously the discs marginally reduce in size as they cool down!
:banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
yeah a turbo FC wouldn't be a bad drifter. i guess you can also say the 300zx then too.
But not all use the calipers. Most have independent drums which serve as the ebrake. So basically, if my brakes go out, the ebrake is useless because it just uses the caliper! It doesn't grip hard at all. Its exactly like pressing the brake just enough for the rear brakes to work.
Now there's a sweet 80's drift/project car waiting to happen ...Clicky
Just throw a 3S-GTE in that bitch and you're good to go:wink2: (or how about an SR20DET?).
