lololololololol

I'll post a pic and if you can figure out where it's at, then you found yourself a nice low key drift spot.



Oh and here's another one.

Those are two different places. The second one is nice for screwing around/practicing and not having to worry about cops showing up.

Well I'm just getting into drifting so the second location is probably going to be my best bet. I've messed around on gravel but that's not the same.

What kind of car do you have? And are you from Cedar Rapids like your profile says?

It's been done, the kid had it sideways every time I was with him so it's possible.

Default Re: Drift areas

A thunderbird would be a horrible drift car. Just cuz a guy can skid one around a corner or do donuts doesn't mean anything. I've slid corners in a turbo diesel truck, doesn't mean it's a car that you drift with.

You said you have 2g to play with? You're like 1/5th of the way there towards having a "Decent/entry level" drift car. If you're serious about wanting to start drifting a 240sx will be the easiest car, well easiest in a sense due to the amount of support there is for the S chassis, parts are a dime a dozen for them, they have massive forums built off the car (nicoclub, zilvia, 240sxforums, ect...), anything you could ever imagine wanting to know about them is a simple type a question and hit search on google, then be provided with a million pages full of answers. However don't mistake this for cheap, drifting is not cheap and it is not possible to be a serious driver and be cheap at the same time. There are more parts needed then you realize, and it cost a pretty penny for the good parts.

Look around at what entry level drift cars are available, things I would recommend are the 240sx, AE-86 (underpowered), Miata, and possibly an FC RX-7 (I've heard a lot of mixed emotions about these, some owners love em to death, and others have hated them a ridiculous amount). Of that car selection the 240 has the most support and is easier to modify. The Miata also has a lot of support and is easy to modify. The 86 is old, support is there but not like the 240 has, some fabrication might be required. The RX-7 I'm not too familiar with but I have heard complaints about finding suspension components for the cars which is critical for a drift car.

its cool to see people actually helping people on here and not hatin
you might be able to get away with a few drifts at night at Westdale Mall? im not sure how the cops are on the side of town, just something you could chill around and see the cop population over a few days and what not then try it out. good luck on the drifting man, and props for being a CR guy

The mall is like always dead and cops aren't constant but security hates me thanks to doing stupid stuff in my younger days so I'm kicked out of the mall and am not supposed to be on property.

it matters because people usually don't give up drift spots to other people, for fear that they will get the place ruined by the cops.
