Does anyone here slide? Or even do touge runs? Anything along those lines.

my ae86 is mainly a touge car/backroads killer, its not enough power to drift with regular tires and open diff, but it does well gripping...i use mine to do some fun runs on local roads with friends, and the 4AC seems best suited for this..just gotta have balls and hold it to the floor. i can outrun most stock and mildly modified s13s Smile

Sweet man. Same here, the group of guys that do the touge runs have a 944, volvo turbo, miatas, 240's, and even a old bug. And we all hang with eachother pretty well, but everyone says that the guy with the bug and I are the craziest since we dont lift very often. Twisted Evil

Im hoping to get a welded diff soon, because sliding open is pretty annoying.

I half-heartedly considered welding my diff for about half a day. I welded the diff in a car I drove in high school for a bit, and it can be hella annoying if you are seeing any daily driving. Not to mention that welding the diff is like a setting a timer, it's only a matter of time before it's buggered and you have to replace it.

Luckily, my friend from high school had a GTS with a failed 20v swap that he handed over to me and it had a factory LSD that is still in good working order. So I'm going to be swapping the rear end over to my SR5 and waiting for the factory LSD to give out so I can upgrade it.

I'm just outside Portland, OR, and the real estate market has been hit incredibly hard here... so there are entire business parks in industrial areas that are vacant, with lots of available blacktop. And the only "scene" I know about in the area is mostly trust-fund kids in late model 350Zs or S2000s...

On the bright side, my best friend just ordered a 13bt engine for his FC so as soon as it arrives and we get it hooked up, we'll probably start hunting down a spot to play around in.

welded diffs only work decent in s chassis lol, welding on a ae86 definitely makes the "timer" more relevant, tiny little rear end cant take it xD

plus even when its welded, all your going to be able to do really is donuts...itll slide sort of, but it just doesn't have the power :/ UNLESS your very skilled.

It's the automotive equivalent of figure skating (ducks and runs for cover)

I agree as well, I mean if you look at how it became popular. The outlandish paint jobs, wheels, drivers, etc... Coupled with the fact that "tire smoke" is judged to determine your score, it really is. And just like ice skating, it's hella fun to do! Even if you didn't want the "cool kids" in high school to know that you did it. Except with drifting you try to make sure everyone knows you can do it, and that they know that it's badass. Kind of like how Honda drivers all talk about racing everyone, we just talk about drifting everywhere.

My dad and his friends used to do it in high school in the 70s and called it "flat tracking," like that form of motorcycle racing is called now.

Cars are just fun in general, be it grip racing, drifting, whatever. I bet anyone that has ever driven a rwd has, at some point, tried to get the rear wheels to slide out... you know... just a little. Wink

There's nothing more awesome, thrilling, and butthole puckering
than a nice controlled slide and ride away like you meant to do that.
The only thing that might top that is jumping your car over something...
which I am not prepared to do to find out!

lol I know what drifting is I was just being stupid. Its easy to drift a 4ac but takes talent to hold a drift with a 4ac. I mean already the 4ag stock is a good starter but a 4ac...that is a mothaf*****G challenge. But we all like to take challenges right?

Yes, it may be like figure skating, but with a pair of balls. Track or street, you have to take a risk when sliding. Especially with a 4ac. Its either floor it into the corner, then throw that wheel and catch it as the back comes out... OR baby it through and grip/understeer through the turn.

No matter what, I love it. Underpowered drifting is such a blast, when you know what youre doing at least a little bit Laughing

That's from Drift Tengoku, Vol 6 I believe. I have it laying around here somewhere.

As far as drifting the 4AC, you're pretty much stuck with snow and rain drifting without major engine modifications.

Grip driving is what's up with this little mill. I need a better seat to hold my little butt in place lol. I barely had more grip in an AWD MazdaSpeed 6. Smile
