Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think that rear would necessarily be better I mean it would work once you get it sliding but its an IRS it's made to move and flex.... You would just want a solid rear what's in your car either the 7.5 or the 8.8 will be good but like everyone else has said suspension and gear are going to play a good role in this.

Also as a side note sliding in the rain and sliding on dry pavement is ALOT diffrent the car tends to react two completely different ways
I only say because I have slid both my mustang and my old 240sx I use to have.

IRS is great for road coarse and auto x but not drift

I "have" an IRS it was in there but there is no way I would sell it with this car it's going in the next stang just trying to decide if I want an all track or street/track car

But all I was saying from my original post was that after switching the rears it made a big difference.

Mustangs are great for drift.
I've never done any actual drifting at events, but just messing around/practicing, of the cars I've owned the mustangs were my favorite to slide around in.
(All done on private property)

I've got a question as well for anyone with more experience, is it just me or do the sn95 mustangs seem to be a little better to drift "out of the box" than the new edges?

Burnnnnn haha. But remember drifting is not about power. It's about handling. True, the NE's have more power under the hood, but I've never driven "an RC car" before so I couldn't tell you either. Maybe someone whose driven or owns both will chime in soon. You could even look up the specs online like weight, stock suspension etc.

Alright meow lol

I thinks its the weight distribution and just how the bodys are set up. It seens like the new edges are slightly taller maybe and may have a different weight distribution.. idk, maybe my friends new edge I drove just had something up.

Never been in a sn95 but from pictures, it looks like the NE's have higher suspension

I really can't wait to get my car back to tip top running again I can't wait to attempt some drifts driving me nuts. Waiting on super six Motorsports to send my new ported and polished upper and lower intake. Not these guys I hang around there's this one guy who takes it seriously he has a nissan 240sx sounds great and he has another engine he built for the car ported and polished intakes, painted sparkle purple valve covers the same color as his car, a pretty good size turbo, head work, guy has inspired me he's a Japanese guy and knows his ****. Coolest guy you can know.

Still a nice looking car. You don't see many hardcore drift cars looking that nice after a season or 2. Even the best smack something sooner or later

My thoughts as well. I like the look, just doesn't look like it would be very practical to drive. I had a 95 celica that sat .75 inches off the ground and it was absolute hell to drive around.. ended up ripping half the exhaust off just driving down a main road. Nowadays I like the height of my stang. A bunch of my friends are into the hellalow hellaflush and they call it 4x4 status, I call it dependability

from the drift point of view the rear hipari setup it perfectly fine if he's running cheap tires with weak side walls, but for the front it's killing how smooth it could feel when it kicks

Might have been something up with that guys car.. I thought it seemed real underpowered when I drove it, like the power was there, it just wasn't putting it to the wheels if that makes any sense

Id like to see the car in action, I'm on a phone so the pics are tiny, but it looks like the fronts would rub a nice bit
