Driving sideways

For drifting you have a rear wheel car, this is because drifting is done by letting you car loose from the rear end. wheel cars have the potential to do just with the pressing of the Thus a cheap car which is to maintain and has kept its reputaion over the years is AE-86. It is parts are easy to modify and easy to on. The only essential for drifting are the limited slip and suspension. Other modifications can be depending on the amount of money you are to spend and if you are then weight and increasing the power output of the would be a good it is advised to spend on modifications these later after you get the all the later modifications and see what is for your car to get into a drift. First of all at the (limited slip diff or LSD When going in a straight both the wheels of the car rotate at the speed. But when on a curve on the outside needs to rotate than the inner wheel it will just be slipping the surface and not gripping. The LSD in a car sends the power proportionally to the wheels more going to the wheel needs to rotate a greater The drawback of having a Slip fitted is that when one has no grip and spins all of the power to this wheel. It is something notice if you have one wheel in or mud and the other on a grippy surface you effectively stuck. On a fast you can get a sharper turning circle and put more power if you moderate the of power going to each An LSD is exactly that and is usually as a ratio. For drifting you need a diff which encourages the to slide over

the road helping to prolong the of the drift. On a track or road the LSD make a big difference to lap times and speeds especially in low grip like wet roads or when you are hammering the engine.

The second mechanical thing that to be modified is the suspension. For begginner in drifting you don’t need negative just lower it and stiffen to get rid of roll. As a rule, the more you roll on, the sharper the turn in be. When you are starting out, the roll can actually give you a margin of error as well as your overall control of the Anti roll bar sway bar strut braces, poly firmer springs are worth but again not an essential. As you get better you be able to set up the suspension to suit personal driving style and so if you go for an uprated suspension kit make it is adjustable or you will need to go out and buy set of springs and dampers later on.


The Toyota Corolla has become a legend among This car is used by the drift It is not just that this car has in animes and etc that has lead it to such status but it is the car itself, the car is a good weight distribution and is a good car for starters. For drifting the band is just right, balanced. An AE-86 drifter that for the Toyota AE 86 (Hachi Roku – Japanese for six.) he recommended a limited diff 2 way with a 4.778 drive ratio.

He also added an APEXi II fuel controller too. Get power from the car an engine was done and his selection of engine for competition use:- An AE92 big engine (red top) cams 304/288 duration lift.Other parts that are to be changed are:

Mated adjustable cam pulleys, NGK R plugs, OER throttle body kit with or KN Filters.

Exhaust – Trust DD

Tein coilovers at the front but on the use something like the TRD’s SS 8 way adjustable shock.

Stick on 9x14in rims with Yoko A539 (Check the size I’m not too sure of that for rims but for drifting you certainly a tight fit to the rim!)

You will also need a supply of tyres as you will rubber on each drift. It is to keep a pair of tires use on the road and a pair just for The pair for drifting can be purchased a second hand shop to costs.  Other than this you need to be patient and practice as as you can. Good luck
