Selecting the best Drift car for 2015

Since the Fast and Furious movie about drifting in Tokyo, it has become a well-known term for anyone that likes this kind of racing. As well as those who just like fast cars and risky street racing. Drift racing actually was born on the mountain roads in Japan, followed by the first round of D1GP in 2000. From there, thanks to internet videos, it became well known in other parts of the world, especially in America.
Drifting for beginners usually is with a stock car that is not fit for real racing drift. But it gets those amateurs stuck with the itch of drift and begin working on their cars and their technique. New drifters can attend events that teach them how to safely control their cars while put their limit in drift. For some it is a serious racing aspect, for others it is just an adrenaline rush to fly around a track sideways, seeing smoke billowing from the tires.
So what do you need to begin drifting?
Basically, not a lot. A real wheel or 4 wheel drive car that can be made real wheel only. A shift differential that is either limited or locked or can be welded into a locked diff. Having a manual gearbox and forgiving clutch, a good e-brake and bc racing coilovers suspension will make it easier to learn and drift well. For competition, you would want and need good tires with race track grip. But for learning it is best to have work, used tires that are cheap and easy to replace as you learn.
The type of car is not as important as the fact that it is rear wheel drive. Having a limited or a welded differential makes it much easier to drift. That aside, there are certain cars that are better value wise. They also have easy to find parts for upgrades and there are widely available spare parts.
These are the best starter drift cars:
• Nissan 200SX & Syline GTS• BMW 3 series• Toyota Supra• Ford Sierra
