DONT BOTHER a lot of people build up there cars and get to scared to drift it as it will owe them quite a bit.

The is200 is underpowerd but it will drift takes a lot more balls as the is200 is heavy and slow, weight shifting really helps

Have you owned drift cars before - can you drift ?

If it was my choice i would weld up the diff get some suspention sorted and find a track nearest to you that has drift days (like Santa Pod) and get used to the cars handling before upgrading the power.

Trust me!
