Re: Best Drifting Vehicles in GT5.

I find the Calsonic Skyline GT-R Race Car ('93) easy to get used to and drift. I found a great setup up that allows me to do backwards entries without loosing rpm or spinning out

heh....I use my modified GT-350 and set the gear ratio with a top speed of 147 mph-ish...or go manual trans and get in to 5th gear ASAP.

you have the feather the throttle a ton though or the tires go red and take forever to cool off.

I am not a drifter by any definition of the term, but that car seems to have a decent amount of "torque to wheelbase" ratio that is favorable to my driving style.

I havn't really done much drifting til recently in GT5, but I found that the new '10 Camaro SS is actually VERY good bone stock.  It got me golds on both trials this time around...first time for that for me.

I need to find myself a Lotus Esprit V8 SE for drift duty though...that was my favorite car to slide around El Capitan in GT4.

I use my 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT 8... i like it, but the FT-86 is good too, as well as a mildly tuned (2010) Camaro SS...

Try out the 2000 Camaro, I find it drifts a little less jittery than the 2010.

2008 BMW M5 with stock gearing is the best i think and it has the power to race against the german cars

There is no real "best" drifting car. Maybe for drift trials, where it is judged on things such as tire spin, the Cerbera Speed 12 would be the definite choice for it's power that allows to spin tires easily racking up points. My personal favorite drift car is the Mazda RX-7 TC. It looks good, and since it's a Touring Car, I can change the front and back downforce for when I need to make tighter turns and such. Another great car for drifting is the recently released Toyota 86 '12. It only has around 350-400 horsepower, but it's really fun to toy around with once you get the right suspension settings and gear ratios.
