No money for car. :p You're 18 and you have a R32? Man, some of my friends (who are freaky car fanatics) would go crazy over that. Are there R34s around going around the Tokyo area?

Cool. ;)
Not too much Skylines here (in Hawaii). I think there is only one Japan imported R34 GT-R from a guy that specializes in imports and car parts/tuning.

Heh, since my car isn't really built for drifting all I can say is i'm jealous 8-p Then again, give me a rolling start wangan-style race any day of the week and it's another story entirely. :cool: Nevertheless I appreciate the difficulty and skill it takes to grip/drift smoothly and the R32 Skyline GTS-T is perfect for that, although I also really like the Evo VII for its short frame and engine displacement as a grip/drift car. If I just wanted to do it for fun though, hard to beat the classic AE86 "hachiroku" Levin/Trueno (besides being cheap, engine swaps and tuning are relatively easy). Silvias are nice too from what I hear.

Long live Keiichi Tsuchiya the Drift King! 8-p
:D

I should check out Initial D sometime. *heh* The only little enjoyment I get from cars are from playing GT3. :p
The car I drive is old (but not hachiroku old XD) and gonna break down if I do stuff to it. :sick:

Hey, older cars are a blast! My first autombile was an '82 VW Rabbit and I tore the heck outta that one running it ragged but it was hands-down one of my favorites :cool: That's the price of having a really nice car is that you can tend to get really anal about it sometimes and hesitate on opening it up and just cutting loose. If I treated my Supra the way I did that Rabbit... *shudders* lol.

*cough* my first post :D

I have a RM S13. I've been learning to drift with it since early this year, I even went all the way to Irwindale for the Driftshowoff to improve. It was cool, I got to meet Drifter X there and I learned first hand just how good Koguchi is.

Some pics of my car:

I don't compete in drift events but I enjoy a little oversteer action. I have an s13 as well, but with the sr20det and lsd. Yo r32dorifutodrift where are you located?

to perform a REAL drift, RWD. to be a wannabe, FWD.

heh, well FWD can do drifts, but you have to use the e-brake to induce a kick in the rear. RWD cars can naturally do this by applying an excess amount of gas, and quickly counter-steering (in a nutshell).

oh, so that's possible

i can remember i almost performed one (but i didn't skid, i was on the limit), steering wherever & by braking toughly. i felt the rear getting real hard on the side. it really surprised me :eek:
it may depend on the car :eek:

hey vinylgraphicjapan. You said you were thinking of getting a GTR as a drift car right? If your going to use your car for drifting i suggest that you get the gts-t model, because it's a RWD...just like Ken Nomura's 4-door skyline..
