Re: Best Drifting Vehicles in GT5.

Oct 9, 2011

I always use the Mazda RX-7 GT-X (FC) '90 Premium, it has good stabbillity and more than enough power. for fun I use Mitsubishi Lancer  EX 1800GSR IC Turbo '83, Chevrolet Silverado SST Concept '02 (hard to drift with xD) and Chevrolet 2010 Tony Stewart #14 Office Depot/Old Spice CHEVROLET IMPALA '10 (if you get this to drift it's actually a funny car to drift with ), the Toyota COROLLA LEVIN GT-APEX (AE86) '83 was the first car i bought in the game (don't remember the prise though) and its very easy to drift with and a brilliant car for beginners (if you find it in UCD).

What's the best for drifting on dirt, as in the new seasonal drift challenge?

EDIT: I tried the RX7 with dirt tires and one of the 4WD off-road cars, but only have bronze so far.  Those last two sharp corners are a real challenge.

I think that the amuse nismo nissian is good and what i use is i keep the tune stock it comes with sport soft keep them just turn everything off but keep traction control at five so then you turn hard and it will slide and its a nice drift however for longer drifts take traction control completly off thats just my opinion

All great looking cars!  From what I can tell, the people getting the highest scores are all using the TVR Tuscan Speed 12 - the car with over 1,000 hp.  I've used it on the last two drift challenges and it works very well.  I am using a fully-modified version and am drifting around the corners in second gear - first doesn't work well for some reason.

I think the best drifting car is the AEM S2000 it's very balanced and handles sooo good in the corners/drifts. its in the new car dealership. if you read the description it says that it was designed for drifting lol. I learned to drift using this car and i suggest you use it!!!

There is no single best vehicle.  Any FR car can be a potentially good drifter in the right hands.  MR is not bad too but takes a bit more breaking to stop it from gripping and quicker countersteer when it does.

I personally like FC3S best, but can handle any road FR or MR car I tried

Maybe it's already said, but with a 50-50% perfect balance, enough kick to push a train with awesome wheels and a dang looking body, one of GT5's best car, I said the Vette from Art Morrison.

Man I love that car and can't race with anything else right now.

Again, let it stock if you want to enjoy, and don't forget to set to off the TCS, enjoy the power

Forgot to say about the sound....... oh yeah!

Yes, there are some amazing videos of people drifting that car (maybe yours?)  It's just embarrasing.
