Drifting Neon

My friend has a 240SX and drifts in it all the time (its rear wheel drive)
I got a 1998 Dodge Neon sport (DOHC engine 150 horse) and I was wondering how I can drift. Is there a technique to it or its just possible only with rearwheel drive cars?

I hope you like replacing tires sooner.

If you do this often, you will face that possiblility.

That is true, but it still takes a toll on the tires (i noticed that last winter when my bike tire was smooth/treadless even from sliding on wet/icy pavement). Just be careful and dont hurt yourself or your car
