Drifting is a form of racing that involves cornering efficiently and effectively at the same time. To participate in such competitions you need a specific car. What car can you start your drift adventure with?

Here are the five most important rules that your first drift car should meet!

  1. It should be rear-wheel drive – drifters’ cars are rear-wheel drive because it’s easier to get them into a skid. That’s why there are so many BMWs on drift circuits. This is why there are so many BMWs on the drifting circuits.
  2. Highpower – to get the car out of a controlled skid you need high power and torque. The best drift cars have even several hundred horsepower, but for the beginning you should look for something from 150 hp upwards.
  3. Drift car must not weigh much – if you want to seriously practice drifting, get rid of upholstery and unnecessary accessories such as radio. Every kilo counts. Some drifters do not even have lights in their cars.
  4. The car should not be expensive – this is important, because while learning to drift you will probably go off track many times, hitting barriers. You should not invest in a very expensive car, which you will quickly destroy.
  5. Strong gearbox – finally remember about gear ratio and clutch. Gear shifting is one of the most important points in drifting. Additionally, focus on properly reinforced brakes – especially the handbrake.

Have fun!
