But once again, I'd rather see him stick with a mustang than going import. This is mustang evolution after all! It is sad to lose a mustang fan to the darkside of the imports. A disturbance I feel lol

There's a guy around me with a ae86 hatch, not a bit of rust and it it runs great, last time I talked to him he was trying to sell it.

you should see all the bmw 3 series in the one scrapyard by me.. lol

Ae86, rx7, 240sx, some of the older supras, foxbodys, all of those are good candidates and can be had relatively cheap.

Rx7s are great, just get to know rotary engines if you plan on working on your own car

I honestly know nothing about rotaries, I've never personally worked on one. I believe I read somewhere that they take boost very well, and can handle more boost than a normal style engine, don't know for a fact though.

I am interesting in building it for speed. Intakes are coming in, after that heads and cam. If I like that I plan on complete rebuild forge internals. repaint a arms, k member, and 8.8 rear end and install, suspension mods and chassis strengthening mods, and 99-01 cobra body with fr500 wheels. Then turbo. And see what the car does best.

that's not the best way to handle that at all...all of your setup is dependent on what you want from the car not the other way around

With those kind of upgrades, it would probably be right at home on a drag strip.

Also, having too much power is very possible in drift as well. If its too powerful, you could lose control of the car if you're not experienced enough or know the car well enough.
Just take it slow, learn, listen, and read as much as possible before you try to slide your car around.
I agree with the idea of getting a cheap beater to learn and possibly compete in, you will smack something sooner or later, and your cars in nice shape.

Yeah I know. So that'll bring me to three cars in my future. I want a nissan z 350 for drift just exhaust cool air intake and welded rear end that'll be strictly a drift car and my dd turboed v6 mustang, and I wanna mustang for strip a great street car with 1000 hp bc power gets old after a while and I always want more. I drove some pretty fast cars and power gets old and used to

I'm a car guy, so ill have tons of cars I know. An old guy at work had all kinds of cars amazed me by how many cars he said he drove

Even more a shocker when he showed me pictures of his rides. Monte Carlos, Shelbys, vettes, camaros, chargers, he's also smart with guns the guy is like 61 years old and cool as ****

Ah, I always get on this forum on my phone and it doesn't show the icons for stuff on the app, never really paid attention to it when I'm on the comp. Thanks for clearing it up.

Indeed, I would like to get an old 13b (I think that's what it is) from an rx7 and rebuild it as a learning project.. just for an idea of what entails a rotary engine.

Your all over the place with very ambitious goals. Its wears off as you get older. Not a bad thing, I miss the good old days where the sky was the limit.

These days I just sit around and hope obama doesnt mangle the country too much worse for my children, and hopefully grandkids. My project mustang helps keep my mind off of that, somewhat.

We all have dreams. Sometimes we need those. I know things that'll blow most people's minds. People call me a conspiracy theorist. I don't care I am who I am. And I have dreams.

I tell you what, I'm really aggrivated about this thread I asked for some info, then get my idea out and basically get told I can't be taken seriously? Bc I change my mind on stuff and open up my ideas on what I wanna do, it's not written in stone the great thing about performance is you can change your mind. And if I tend to do it a lot then oh well. Why even waste your time saying I can't take you seriously? When negative comments like that are made its common for someone like myself to ask, who are you to say I'm not a person to be taken seriously? This site has got to crack down on its users and I don't care if any admins or discipline people get offended but y'all really need to work on the forums.

Not so funny story about drifting that happened about an hour ago. A group of five or so kids comes into my store while I'm working. They tell me, hey man, we need your help. We are trying to keep my friend out of deep trouble. If his mom finds out what happened, she will literally kill him. They ask if they mind if they said they his the yellow concrete barrier outside of my store. Intrigued, I made them tell me what happened. They told me they were across town in a parkinglot trying to drift their car on the slushy pavement. The inexperienced driver lost control of the car, and wrapped it around one of those free standing concrete poles. All the airbags went off, whole side of the car is concaved, and there's a good chance of frame damage. They drove it all the way across town and thought the little barrier would be convincing enough to do damage. I agreed not to tell the police anything, seeing as I heard nor saw anything myself, and judging my the driver holding back tears, I figured he had learned his lesson. Wrecked a brand spankin new Mazda 3 hatchback. Moral of the story, don't drift in a parkinglot with concrete pillars, after a fresh snowfall. Here's the barrior they told the cop they hit, resulting in such damage. Lol
