Nope, everyone knows you have to have an LSx swap to drift.

He is correct. That black ones are faster though. The paint job they have is more aerodynamic

This thread is so full of oh my god that I can barely handle it

Quick question, do people ACTUALLY drift with this hellaflush shit? Stretching tires like that and puttin the heat on them just sounds like a bad time.


Just my two cents:

If you're gonna get into a hobby like drifting, be prepared for an expensive, and I mean expensive, startup. Then continuous costs in tires, brakes and maintenance.

I remember working at sears when Tokyo Drift came out, the amount of axles, rear suspension components and wheels/tires I replaced was hilarious. I even saw a kid that had a book titled "The Art of Drifting" in his back seat, with a sheered axle shaft and a split 4 link haha.

DJ, I think I know the second picture, I used to fuck around there in the winter, I miss how big the parking lot used to be, if I'm right of course lol.



...Practice in an empty lot with lots of cones or some shit you can hit without destoying a undeserving car. Your best bet is to practice at a local event, even if you suck.

Default Re: Drift areas

If you guys really want to drift or want the drift community here in Iowa to grow you need to have legitimate events.

Have you guys spoken to the owners of Hawkeye Downs about regularly hosting an event?

Street sliding is not nearly as fun as a drift event. The events I normally go to are 25-50 bucks and you drift for 8-10 hours straight no cops, no tickets, no risk of hitting other cars or pedestrians.

It only takes a couple of people to step up, get together with the owners, organize insurance/on site paramedics and do some marketing to have some pretty cool events I imagine.

Everyone I talk to says I should drift the FRS my parents are getting me. It's my first car and I dont know how to drift. Is it hard to learn? Can one of you teach me when I get my car?

Is there any modz i need? So far I'm going to put rimz, underglow, and a double deck wing on it. People have been saying I also need to cut my springs? I don't know what the means. Also 4" exhaust? but why 4" can I do smaller because I can't find any that big. And they also say I need stretched tires? what is that? I'm new to JDM.
