@ Dude: I am really excited to see the finish product as it will give me some insight and inspiration on future mods if I ever get around to them.
Are you drifting with a rear wheel or AWD? . I started on my S-class VIS Teg with a K24a swap.
Then went up to my U-class Corrado with a R32 GTi swap.
And ironically, I then went to drifting a C-class S14 Silvia on stock tires with a adjustable down-force wing.
As the saying goes: practice makes perfect.
Just try working your way up. The physics are so ultra-realistic that it's damn near impossible to drift a rear wheel properly (maintaining a speed and not bogging)
I use the hand-brake and 3rd to second drop, early into the turn to pop the clutch and get the tires loose.
