.....

you can drift with leaf springs....there is no law against it

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!

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.

I guess I worded it wrong, any RWD/AWD vehicle can drift, and any FWD vehicle can ass drag (with some modifications lol)...

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!
