Very true. I started out drifting in my 86 Mustang gt. I then welded the dif in it and went from there. Then I got my ae86 SR5 and got a spool in it and drifted that and that things has less then 90bhp . So it drifting is all driver. Just drift it stock and see wear you need to make adjustments to make it smoother for your style , what every it might me

I drifted an 85 celica with a good 90 -110 hp to the wheels...
driver > car

good info here. I didn't realize the stock diff could be a weak point.
any suggestions on where to look for suitable replacements?

I'll be building a tube front and rear for my car eventually as well as a full cage. It will mostly be used as a time attack car though, I have something else in mind for a drift car.

How is the stock steering angle on the car? With the car as twitchy as it is a lot of angle would be important to be able to hang with it.

Twitchy?! Are we still talking about an RX8? Unless someone has messed with the suspension, they're pretty docile.

Steering angle is ample, but it's sort of a weird question. Wouldn't you have your answer if you have driven the car?

I haven't lol. I've had people tell me not to use them for drift in the past. I bought a shell a few months ago for a time attack build so I've yet to actually drive on. I've ridden in them plenty of times though.

I'm planning on doing most of the fabrication myself for the initial swap. I really just want to get the car on the road so I can start figuring out exactly what I want to do with it.

I thought you were referring to what subframes I was planning on swapping in lol. I'll be doing an ls swap and eventually a turbo ls.

Suspension is too soft. Coilovers or harder springs

front wheels- whatever you prefer

rear wheels- 16 or even 15 size smaller is better. nothing too wide , 205 should be ok The Renny doesnt have a lot of power to powerslide. you can also experement with putting winter tires at the back or pumping more air in the tires (like up to 4 bar) for less grip, and easier power sliding.

hand brake - the cheap e button thing or you can just duct tape the button when racing.

Also do a cool down lap often the oil and water does get hot.
