Indeed, I've only driven 2 new edges, that one just felt sluggish, idk if it was the fact it was an auto, or if there was something bad up with it. But the other new edge I drove was fine, that was the first stang id driven that was newer than an 84 lol

---------- Post added at 09:03 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:59 PM ----------

And I don't doubt for a second that the other dudes new edge would eat mine up, there's a very noticeable difference between the sn 6s and NE 6s.

I want to say 120-150xxx somewhere in that region, I didn't really do much with it, just helped him learn how to do a burnout and figured out why his vert top didn't want to work.. it wasn't a bad car, I actually considered buying it off him, it just had its gremlins.

Doesn't take much to make up the weight difference. My vert is lighter than a coupe and you can't see anything I removed. Hoping to be lighter than a base v6 with no noticable things gutted here soon.

I know there's not a huge call for it, but I plan on doing weight reduction on my 95 base, rear seats are definately getting deleted, what are some things you pulled?

Bunch of extra structural stuff, plus the frame and motors for the top, extra reinforcement in a bunch of areas, plus the cloth top.

I was being a smartass, you CAN drift with an auto, but it is tougher, I learned the basics in an automatic firebird (word of advice, don't bother trying to really drift a firebird, take it sideways and flick it around and watch a ttop pop out..)
You have to learn different techniques for any vehicle you want to drift. None of them are balanced exactly the same, not all of them react the same way.

I am by no means an expert, but I learned the limited amount I know by trial and error. There's a video on youtube, I can't remember the guys name, but its the guy that invented drifting, he has a video on different techniques and some insight into the world of drift.

I would do a complete over hall. Take out the engine forge internals, turbo max the boost, 8.8 swap, max out the suspension. What would that do ? Far as a drift car?

You really don't need to go through all that trouble with the power adders.

Is your car a daily driver? Would it be strictly track? And if its strictly track would you only be doing drift or some drag?
All of that comes into play when choosing a direction to go in

Just a car to have fun in and enjoy nothing too fancy but I know you either have one or the other a drift car or a quarter mile car. Quarter miles aren't that fun, everyone can run a straight line. Something street able

Well, high power is not needed in drift, the main things to consider is weight, weight distribution, definately need a limited slip or locker rear end, as long as you can spin both tires.. suspension upgrades, and the right tire/wheel combo for your goals.

I intend to do the same thing to my car but I plan on shaving weight wherever possible, going to be deleteing the rear seats, gutting the trunk, might do some sort of bed coating on the floor boards and do away with the carpet.

I completely agree with the squall! These guys would have been disqualified in a real competition! The goal is a nice obtuse steering angle. Looked like they were just losing a little traction and sqeaking a bit!

My son watches formula d, and sometimes ill watch with him. These guys were quite unimpressive in comparison.

But seriously if you are really wanting to get into drift op, then you need to leave your mustang alone, and go pick up a little beater. Something small, light, and with decent power, but more importantly cheap because it will take a thrashing. It is not a bright idea to use a daily driver that is going to see that kind of punishment.

It was the funniest thing to see soo many smashed up imports hit the salvage yards just after tokyo drift came out.

Got a beat up fox body. You can find one that has a body that is not in so good of shape very cheap. Focus on the motor and chassis. Make her stiff and you will be good to go. And since parts are a dime a dozen, when you smack a barrier with it you can find replacement parts quick and cheap.

Another good option, though forgive me for being biased towards keeping him with a mustang!
