Best Drifting Vehicles in GT5.

I personally love the Vette'60, Lancer's and most rally cars. What do you guys find is the best drifting car?

I'm a complete newb when it comes to drifting. If I do happen to drift, it is purely by accident. What drivetrain is best for drifting? Or is it a matter of personal preference?

I like to use the S13 Nissan Silvia (New from the Dealership) it is a very easy car to drift, and can make even newbies look like they know what they are doing.

Is that the 1 2nd from left? I'm thinking of getting the 1 next 2 it(to the right) as my 2nd car(roughly $25.6K) in Lightning Yellow. My other car is the Sunburst Yellow Miata(only color available if buying that car).

I have to first say I LOVE DRIFTING in this game, I do it for hours on the practice tracks (Nurburgring GP D mostly) and rewatch the replays over and over so i can find the perfect line. I just found an 88 IROCZ concept in UCD, I maxed it out with mods and put sports hard tires on, this is now my favorite drifter. Handles awesome in a slide and has plenty of power to drift smoothly through turns. Previous to this car was my ZR1 vette and my Ferrari 512BB.

MHM, drifting is a lot of fun in this game.

Sorry, but Lancers? If you mean EVOs, then I have to say, AWD is for pussies on the drift course. Same goes for those frenchies who always use Imprezas and get in the way.

The cars I use mostly are

1990 RX-7(~230hp)

1990 Nissan Skyline GTS25(298hp)

Toms Chaser(400ish hp)

Dunlop ER34(the premium one)

C5 Corvette(~450hp, close to stock)

I just started to finally use my S.Shigeno Sprinter Trueno, and have been developing quite a technique with that.

I have plenty of other cars I like to sometimes take out to the track.

Lamborghini Murcielago. If you stab the brakes, wait for it to slide, then give it a dose of throttle you can hold a beautiful 4 wheel drift through the rest of the turn. You can feel the massive power ripping at the tires at all 4 wheels, but there's still enough traction because of the 4wd to pull the car forward. It's an intense almost violent drift, but I love it.
