Hey guys putting up a thread because there is no thread on here that is very informative on drifting our cars, first off our cars are heavy yes, me im in highschool and I like having my back seats and luxury features so I haven't stripped my interior at all, even if you decide to you won't lose much weight to make a difference unless you take out everything and go lightweight seats, im now going to go over what mods you need to do to your car to make it drift safely without breaking shit, first off plenum spacer!! You need more power throughout rpm range it helps, z1 sells them for about $200, next you need a differential brace, you dont want your diff stud breaking and losing your diff on the track or wherever, bellworks diff brace will run you $130 it also gets rid of wheel hop, next up drift spares, you got 2 options expensive route or cheap rout either way is fine, get used g35 wheels//350z wheels that are 17" or get the 2005-2007 g35 forged rays, there stronger and lighter and there 19". Next go to used tire shop grab some much machos for 40 bucks per tire, 235/40/17 works great on oem g35 or 350z wheels, on forged rays go 240/40/19 next up there are sensors you need to unplug to fully disable traction controll take negative terminal off of battery, there is one inside center consol,right under seat warmers there's a abs module unplug it ziptie the cable to the side you can replug it anytime. Make sure battery is off when you do. Grey plastic plug in top right of engine bay kind of hidden down but faily easy to find and unplug thats for your abs, you can take out pin 101, if you want to do burnouts look at another thread too lazy to explain on this one but not necessary, next up is sway bars these are more important than coilovers! Stops body roll, our differentials are vlsd meaning it will give more power to the side with least amount of weight which means if your doing donuts at a car takeover and you don't put down enough throttle car will want to get out of the drift. And hit the crowd, Hard to explain but a sway bar will keep rear tires planted better meaning more tirespin spread more evenly more like a welded diff except it isn't one at all. Next up our vlsd are shitty, yes they sort of work yes they wear out quick if used for drifting, buy a 1.5 way limited slip differential(one that uses clutch plates) like the Tomei lsd or nismo gt lsd, meaning when you step on pedal both tires spin at same speed like welded diff but wont kill your tires if its a daily. If your going all out drift just weld it! Next up z1 adjustable suspension package for around $650 shipped, allows to get car aligned for drifting, and daily driving will feel wayy better. Alignment is very important after getting this! (Tip go to a laser alignment shop and ask who the drift specialist is) let him align it. Next get an angle kit there around 300 shipped very cheap helps you not spin out soo much, you can take your bump stops out, can damage your coilovers though beware. Your ready for drifting safely now, watch your rpms! G's are heavy clutch kicking is a good way to enter a drift(be careful i "shattered" my dual mass flywheel by clutch kicking a lot) your clutch yes will wear out if you clutch kick all the time your best bet is to go to z1 motorsports like i did and grab there mild performance clutch kit, if you drive daily get unsprung clutch disk, mild performance clutch, and lightweight flywheel (14lbs) this will take the abuse, drive great as a daily, and free up a lot of rotational mass meaning better acceleration. Next up is a lightweight driveshaft dont get driveshaft shops driveshaft i heard its loud and clunky get the one from concept z performance the one with foam in it to get rid of the extra noise, this will give you a big noticeable difference in acceleration. The good thing i like about these cars is you don't have to tune these motors and spend a lot of money on Bolt ons and a tune you can grab lightweight pulleys for $300, lightweight driveshaft for $600, lightweight flywheels and clutch package( which you will need ) for $650 and a plenum spacer. You increased acceleration a ton, without making the motor itself more powerful making it have not as long as a life, plenum spacer helps in mpg along with every other mod I just said. Our cars are not cheap to modify but there beasts when done right!
