u guys have never really seen AWD's drifting nor bikes doing it?

geez.... look up some Evo videos (some even in professional events), and they are not in rally competitions.


as for bikes, i have seen quite a few. maybe just one turn at a time, but i have seen it. in fact, here in PR we're gonna have an ice competition with bikes and ATV's (sure it's ice, but we dont have ice to practice every day).


i've seen ATV's drifting...... go karts....


oh, i've never seen a moped drift or powerslide or anything..... there's a challenge.


a lawnmower (the big ones), without changing the engine.

I agree in part,

i dont see any fun in watching a bunch of asian guys in skylines goin around a track sideways,

but when you see it in real life with whatever car it may be, its pretty nuts in its own right, its fun too, if your part of it

You can drift in a go-kart...Just not on the tracks that they give, because they have virtually no suspension, and the slightest bump and they're flying all over the place, I've gotten them to give a little bit, but didn't want to spin out so I just stopped

BTW Would a Vespa count as a MoPed?...Because I've seen those drift too

IMO Drifting is an art...the art of going sideways

they arent. and all skylines aren't AWD, the older ones (pre - R32), and certain trims of the new models (R32 and after) are also RWD.

no silvia came stock AWD, but it may be possible that someone somewhere has converted one to AWD.

I dont think the Fiero could.
Any mid engine for that matter, i think the physics behind the design makes it harder...

You obviously haven't seen the drift bible. Keiichi Tsuchiya shows you exactly how to drift an MR. He drifts a 90's MR2. Sure, it's harder, but it can be done.
