I've got a 'drifting experience' coming up soon.

 

The company offers a choice of two cars, from the following list. Which two would YOU choose - and why?...

 

 

Nissan S14 V8

 

BMW E46 M3

 

Nissan 350Z

 

Toyota AE86 turbo (an old Corolla, I believe)

No contest here (for me atleast)

 

Nissan S14 V8 :

The S bodies are supposed to be very good chassis's for drifting with. Plus it has a V8.....

 

Toyota AE86 turbo :

I have always had a soft spot for these. Not sure what engine it will have in it though as it says turbo. But the original 4AGE engines are just wonderful. My old MK1 MR2 would rev to high heaven! Plus this is the original drift car (see Initial D movie). So extra cool points here.

 

BMW E46 M3 - does nothing for me

Nissan 350Z - owned (not drifted) one of these so would be good to try the above cars as they are new. However, there could be something said for drifting this car as it may provide skills that can be transfered to the 370 for real road situations and car control.

Same choice.

Boats Skylines might be too big for drifting.

Being 'sensible' I would go for the 350Z as it's the closest to the 370Z and so your new skills might be most transferable.

 

But, I couldn't turn down the V8 S14 :drive1

I will put my 2p in

 

350Z and AE86

 

  350Z as said because - it would be rude not too.  Toyota because in the Drift Championship the two leading cars are Toyota and Nissan.  That is all.  :kicking:
