now if u all go to the overview section they'll tell u y FF's cant drift, and these guy r based in japan and have been drifting for a loong time so they know what they're talking about.

that site was made before Initial D came out, the 86 was probably choosen cuz compared to the cars today its underpowerd and initial d is about the underdog winning against all odds, u cant get anymore underdog than a 20 year old car(well 13 years old when initial d was made). and yes, a lot of people do use the 86 to drift.

Karasac, you do know alot. But thier are somethings that i think you are just wrong about. For instense that FF can not drift. I have a little thing that says they can and how they can. Iam going to type it up then copy it into a post so that you can see it and read it for yourself.

yea.. i did... they said physics law won't allow it.. which i dun think so.. (btw, whose physics law is this? I study physics in school too.. it's just a matter of force redistribution, change of force or to be simple, change of energy)


I told u b4 that i am having a hard time learning how to drift FF car after selling my souped up AE71.

But I realize that FF cars hv no prob in doing the Fish-tailling and U-turn drift.. just a matter of time to get used to the braking function of the car.. and the correct timing when to "throw/Lift off" ur car..

I think it's just a matter of terminology.. Some ppl dun like it to be called "drift", they called it "ass dragging"

Maybe they will run an episode of Initial D showing takumi drifting with a FF car.. who know?

That's true, I don't disagree at all that FF cars are good at taking U-turns or non-tightening turns, and by all intents and purposes and the way the car looks, it could be drifting.

I think the difference truly shows in corners that aren't consistently the same arc all the way through, or through multiple strings of corners.

If a corner's tightening, an FF car doesn't allow you to open the throttle more to push the rear of the car closer to the center and tighten the drift. Opening the throttle if anything would cause an FF car to straighten out in the direction it's pointed (unless you go beyond the absolute grip of the tires, where then the tires will just be skidding with no grip whatsoever, so you'll just go straight off a cliff/into a guardrail).

I don't know if I'm making sense, but yeah. I've seen a lot of "fishtailing" FF cars, but never saw one take an open long corner that tightens at the apex.

It caused a boost in popularity because everyone wants to drive around like Takumi. But the drivers in Japan and the few in the United States knew of the 86 well before then because of Keiichi Tsuchiya. It'd be kinda cool to own an 86 since it's a great car, but it's kind of like jumping on the bandwagon at this point.

Hey speaking of the AE86, anyone know where to get one?
Bandwagons, ehh, well I'll say the since everyone thinks it's a bandwagon thing to do newbie drivers like me aren't gonna get one so, me getting one is technicly unbandwagon. No? ok...

it can move, it's agile (sp?), and it's light as hell. And I've heard of some crazy swaps peeps are doing
