or if you wanted to go drifting you could go all initial d and get an AE86 tureano (i cant remember how it's spelled). but don't do that, little emo 16 year olds do that that think drifting means just jerking the handbrake and hitting the wall

Mini's are good for arse dragging (think that's how the boy racers say it, lol), and Caterham's are good for drifing, if you're skilled enough to control it.
