Default Drift Conversion Starts now!Sideways from now on:Pics updated daily!

Hello Everyone Im back! IVE been gone for a while and now im back and better than ever. I havent been on these forums in a while and figured i would step back in and let everyone know what im into now and where i am in the SC world! I have moved to Okinawa Japan now and i went drifting today with my boy Darrell and i am HOOKED!!!

WIthout a doubt i am a drifter and will be forever, no more straight line racing, from now on im sideways!!

Today i have searched and researched about everything i needed to convert my 1995 Sc300 1JZ-GTE T70DBB Single Auto to a drift car. I am recently researching for the 5 speed swap, as well as Suspension. SO let me know drifters, what do i need????? whats best??? your opinions and experience is also welcomed and encouraged.

here are sosme pics of todays drifts!!!

SKYLINES, S13's, S15's all Silvia's Galor, Chasers, MKIV's, MKIII's, you name it its here!! SLIDING with the best....

ive been opened up to a new world.....ONCE YOU GO DRIFT YOULL NEVER GO DRAG!!!

With drifting its not about power, or looks, or speed, its about sliding together. more people have helped me out in this world than my entire life dragging. Ive only been doing this 3 weeks!! This world is about sliding together, about finding those cars who you can Tandum Drift with and you stick together no matter how fast your car is. Its not about your BLING in your motor, its about the slide, about the drift!

Im Going to start drifting back in the states, BUT first im learning here, then bringing it back to the SC300!! Im learning on my boys Nissan Skyline with RB25.

Wish me luck!!

Parts Needed:

R154 Manual Transmission w/shifter extension assembly: Bought

Master/slave cylinder: Bought

Clutch/Brake Pedal Assembly(driftmotion): Bought
New Differential w/ differential adapter through Driftmotion.com : Bought

Adjustable Coilover set: Bought Tein

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but why is it that drifters always have different rims in the front and back?

my guess is to preserve their "good" tires previously in the rear and throw some crappy tires on that they don't mind wearing out.

Manual transmission, coilovers, LSD, seat... Those are pretty much the most important things.

i've seen some people with some sort of aftermarket e-brake as well, kinda like a really tall handle for drifting or something like that.

Those S15 Silvias are amazing! I wonder why we never got them in them in the U.S.?

yea i think they switch over to hydrolic hand brakes that allow u to just pull up to engage the brakes so u dont have to press the button and pull it up and then put it back down.

DOn't worry about pushing **** loads of power or having the best aero.

Just get coilovers, weld your diff/get a legit diff, 5spd and then go from there.
That's how my S chassis cars were.
