For me, I perfer 4WD and FWD because they don't have that much tendency to fishtail. I just let my car slide holding down the accelerator and using understeer to exit at the corners.

I prefer 4WD and RWD, $WD is very easy to hold longer drifts, RWD is more of a challenge.

I prefer 4wd and RWD... I don't much like Fwd - too much understeer...

I just like to slide - I beat a bud of mine, I was drifting and he was doing a grip run - in drifting u can take some corners faster than if u were doing a drift run...

FRs, MRs, RRs. 4WD is a bit of chore for me on asphalt. M4WD is even harder.

If you're only talking about GT4 then.......

a few imprezas

Miatas

NSXs

FDs

MR2 and MR-S

anything that slides easily when turning even at no gas, I love. happy.gif

and since the majority of slide happy cars are MR(please correct me if i'm wrong) then it's probably MR or *insert_correction_from_other_posters*

FR: wub.gif Always prefered the classic FR layout for drifting, well balanced and doesnt require much to make it oversteer.

RR: Tried it, hated it. The rear is way to swingy for me, couldnt hold longer drifts.

MR: Better than RR, not as good as FR. Well balanced but its just too balanced.

4WD: I havent got the hang of 4WD drifting that good yet, its just smokey understeer when I try sad.gif rally is a different story, I think I kick more dust sideways than Nomura on the tarmac tongue.gif

FF: Actually fun to "drift" with, needs a stupid set up though, usually makes the car feel sloppy to drive.

try my Stagea setup for any 4wd with similar power level, and try again. it works better with cars that have rear biased power distribution.

THEY are balanced to you? They're as swingy as an RR for me. >_>

the rear wheels tend to skid very easily.

but that's just probably because of GT4 itself.
