I think you're making bullcrap assumptions about what i care about. I don't like to hear about people dying, i don't care what age they are or who they are.

I'm in a pissy mood because tonight I realized I'm wasting my time on this site (as great as it is) & I need to get out and do something. I'm so f'ing bored. Today sucked ass. I'm so sick of my jobs, I need a freaking vacation but I have no money to drive to Florida to sit on a beach and stare at topless girls all day. I don't think my car would make it down there anyway. Why can't I have what I want when I want? a 350 with a 6 sp. Sure I'll pay you 250 a month for it. oh but wait "CREDIT" stands in the f'ing way. I make 1800 a month...and they don't trust me with a 10k loan? Stupid world. See? truth hurts.

Stupid freakin customer wanted the phone system to do everything it wasn't capable of. so I spent two full days there not knowing what the hell I was doing in the first place.

fella's! fella's! put down the knives.. for christ's sake..

to put this plainly, if you want to drift, sell your escort.

get a merkur xr4ti (my personal favorite), a 240sx or an AE86 or an old 200sx or god knows what.
you'll have more fun. trust me.

using your handbrake for "drifting" is not going to do anything but put ENORMOUS flat spots on your tires, and 'f' up your wheel bearings.

The most fun you could possibly have is doing reverse donuts, which really isn't all that fun, unless you're in the snow and don't have to worry about breaking anything. If you want a drift car, rethink owning an escort.

A while ago you were looking at a new escort. (Well, not new, used, but you know what I mean.) I don't remember how much the lady wanted for it, but I think it was like 3-5k or somewhere around there. An AE - 86 is a Toyota Corolla Levin or Sprinter Trueno (depending on the headlights. Trueno is flip up headlights and Levin is normal headlights. I'm not sure if they were labelled Levin and Trueno in the U.S. though.) made back in the eighties. So far I haven't found one that's in good enough condition to drive (I would kill to have an AE-86 panda trueno that was actually in good condition... Okay, maybe not kill) If you could find a rear wheel drive AE-85 (which is the same thing except with an 88(?) hp SOHC instead of the 128hp DOHC) you could also drift with that and it would also be very inexpensive... make sure you're getting RWD though... So far I haven't had any luck. ... Anyways, sorry for the rambling, but my whole point here was that if you /did/ happen to find one... It would probably be very inexpensive (depending on whether or not the seller really knew what they had - To many a corolla is just a corolla... In the same way that an escort is just an escort to many people; GT or not.). Less expensive than that escort that you were looking at, I would think. Of course, it wouldn't be an escort, but still.

On the other hand it is not impossible to 'drift' a front wheel drive... It's more powersliding, I guess, when you go around a corner without braking hard enough to break the rear end loose. In my car... I've never driven any other escort to the limits... If you lock them brakes up intending to drift what you'll end up doing is losing all steering and sliding forward into whatever is in front of you... I wouldn't recommend breaking it loose in an FF... It's all about goin' fast and keeping the grip. ;p Blah blah blah more ramblings of someone who clearly has no idea what they're talking about...

UPDATE: Okay so I kinda figured out that a 240SX might actually be easier to find and cheaper to buy (I was thinking and I remember seeing one for a thousand out at a boneyard - It was in okay condition. Didn't drive it though because I can't afford a new car.) than an AE86, but probably harder to convince your parents to buy. The words 'Escort' and 'Corolla' are synonomous with 'Econobox' to most people. Whereas if you say 'Nissan 240 SX' people are going to think 'Sports Car' because that's pretty much what they are... Anyways... More rambling from me. Sorry for taking up all this space.

LoL james and sittinlo would make a great married couple...

Yeah, I agree, get a RWD car. A 1st gen RX-7 turbo, completely gutted out, would make an awesome drift car. You could spin the tires in every gear.

Might wanna wait a couple of years on that one... I know if I had something like that I'd be all over the place. Like, as in, pieces of my body would be all over the place because I crashed it into a wall doing god knows how many mph.
