Well to let you guys know. There is a kid in Japan that Won Battle of the Drifts in his Z3 . They kept telling him that it really is not the best car to drift in. Two reasons really, wheel base and and the modifications needed to to get the steering angle much more dramatic.

That should pretty much settle the issue.

huh... this one must have slipped by me when my computer was down... a month ago...


Z32s shouldnt have a problem with adding angle... below the tie rod its all S13 stuff.

An S13 Hicas rack and Uras Inners are all that guy probably used.

I kinda want a Z to build into a drift car.

Z31s have a Clutch type R200? HHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRMmmmmmmmm Verrrryy Interesting.

Dont drift in Japan? not sure where you got that from. There are 3 drivers featured in d1 articles for drifting their Z32's. They use TT 2+2 since it has a 10 in. longer wheelbase allowing more control with tie rod spacers for more angle. 3 people including myself drift 2+2's on our local drifting circuit. it can for sure be done, you just have to be very commited to the task at hand and give it your all
