You should read this article:
http://www.club4ag.com/faq%20and%20t...ers%20Life.htm

Then go to a drift day and get advice from the guys there and also practice.

What you dont know is that professional drift cars have over $200,000 in mods put into the cars to be able to do that, not only the mods but you have to DYNO and Retune the computer to ba able to do that. Also most do 500-600 in second and third gear which makes them completly usless on the streets

Unless he meant an amateur weekend drift car, where he'd put money in occassionally whenever he could lol.

BTW What do you mean by they do 500-600 in second and third? lol

Any RWD car can drift. You dont need to spend 200,000 dollars. Especially when you take into consideration how much of that money is for cosmetic crap. Dyno tuning is not hard.

And what the **** are you talking about 500-600 in second and third gear? I hope you dont mean speed, because if so that makes the the biggest dumbass on this board.

A stock RX-7 can drift, engine power is sufficient in a stock Rx-7 so you shouldn't focus too much on the engine. You don't have to dyno your car or retune the ECU to drift. You're better off save the money for tyres and replacement parts as drifting puts a lot of strain.

Well how about a pro drifting a stock car?

Drifting is mainly about car control, pouring money into modifications doesn't make you a drifter. Pro's don't usually start off in 400hp Silvias.

Great, a moron repeating what he hears on TV is gonna teach US about this. Right.

That RX-7 sounded like an F1 car

Well I guess you can spend some on suspension tuning and brakes. That is pretty much all you need to make it a tad bit easier, but try drifting the stock version first before you do anything to the car so you get a feel for it. And I guess you can try this on an empty parking lot:

Brake
Brake
Shift Down
Gas

by the second brake start turning the wheel

youre a moron. have you actually watched amature drifting? some people arent that bad. i mean heck, i can hold one for a decent amount of time. sure, no d1 status, but if youre basing your knowlege off of what you hear from a television episode, dont touch your keyboard
