View Full Version : Alternative drift cars...

05-02-09, 01:44 PM

we've all seen 180's,200's, Rx7, skylines, supras, soarers, cefiro, chaser, trueno and the like at the drift track, but what are some alternative, slightly left of field drift cars?

so throw us some suggestions, they dont have to be for full blown drift monsters, ones that can be done on a budget are better!!
here are some of mine:

1986 Ford Mustung SVO
(now this is one ugly car it looks like the front half of a mitsubishi scorpian on the back half of an xd falcon!!)
however it did come with a 200hp 2.3L Turbo 4 cylinder, uprated suspension including beefed up anti-sway and stabiliser bars, a Traction-Lok differential (LSD).

1987 Alfa Romeo GTV6
weighing 1300kg and powered by a free revving 160hp 2.5L V6 it doesn't have oodles of power.. what it does have however is a transaxle. this is when the transmission, differential and rear disk brakes are all mounted in one package located at the rear of the car, this offes near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution

and finally

1989 Porsche 944 S2
with a lovely 3.0L 4 Cylinder (That is correct three litres four cylinders!)
superbly set-up rear-drive chassis and a proven track record (944 challenge series). you can pick up LHD Porsche 944 for next to nothing.

any of the rwd volvos would be crazy, spesh if it looks grandpa spec.

for me personally it would be either an really early datsun, one that no1 would pic, or a ke30 or earlier rolla, both the toyota and datsun would be powered with an sr20 though :p

btw u took my idea of a 944, herd lots of stories of circut na versions being tail happy buggers, cant start to imagine how fun a 944 turbo would be with a tight lsd.

seen alfa 75s drift, wierd to see such a large italian car hold it out sidways.

but for something i havnt ever seen would be a holden torana, would be awesome to see something which nowadays is limited to drag strips get sidways with the japs :p

lol the ideas keep coming, how bout a hilux or rodeo???

I would have to say ke70 always had a soft spot for them. But i geuss they are getting ever more popular. If your on major budjet a stocker with chopped springs, welded diff and shit loads of clutch kicking makes a great drift pig stock motor refuses to die.. maybe because its lack of power lol. Though for more power and those with the cash an engine swap is a great investment like a sr20det or ca. For the keep it toyota freaks 4age. Oh and not to mention the cars curb weight is 910 kgs. Power to weight FTW

advisement 1300kg and powered by a uncommitted revving 160hp 2.5L V6 it doesn't know oodles of force.. what it does somebody nonetheless is a transaxle. this is when the gear, reckoning and straighten circle brake are all mounted in one parcel settled at the lift of the car, this offes nearer 50/50 front/rear metric arrangement
