but they can,

im also wondering if its possible to drift a motorcycle (while burning out the rear tire of course)

any ideas of what can never drift? im stuck for ideas

Pretty sweet vid...With FWD cars, it's called powersliding, but the results are pretty much the same lol...A motorcycle would probably be driftable...You've never done it with a bike? lol...What about an AWD car?...Not sure about those lol...

newer Jeeps can't drift... ABS and their quadratrac transfer case prevent it.

With fwd cars it's called ass-draging.

I don't think tanks can drift. Not sure if a bigrig can technically drift while it's carrying a trailer.
I'd like to see one of those BMW Isettas try to drift. So little power, and not much weight to throw around. Although only one rear tire = less traction.
