Id go for a nissan 240 sx or a mazda rx7. Make sure you turn driver aids off or your drifting will suffer.

Most A-Class-and-above all-wheel-drive or rear-wheel-drive cars work fine, although there is the obvious Toyota Corolla GT-Apex and S15 Silvia. I usually use the Lexus LF-A.

Whatever you want your drift car to be. Mine is the Hemi Cuda' and I love it. Drifting is just a matter of tuning and your skills applied to the car your drifting. There is no best drift car, only popular and unpopular cars. Most people use the AE86, S13, S14, S15, 350z, 370z, Skylines, ect.

I use a 2011 Holden #1 Commodore VE. That has way more power (Arguable). You can drift something with close to 1,000 HP, just have to tune very specific to how you drive and obviously get the best breaks and springs and such lol their isn't any bad car to drift. First car I drifted, FWD hatchback lol learned my lesson that those suck epicly but I still drifted it for the longest time. 2nd car, Doge Charger RT 69'. That was great, got me into more power and tourqe. Then I drove and AWD BMW M5, then a skyline, then a supra, then a eclipse (went through a 2fast 2furious stage lol) and then I got my Holden. I can't say my Holden is any better than my first car (Toyota Pruis lmao) because I had them all so specific to how I drove. Drifting is really just driving once you get the tune down. Everybody's different, everyone will feel awkward in someone else's drift car. So find a car, any car you like, and play around with it. It takes a long time to get everything perfect. But after your firs

Recomended for drifting is any car FR. Front engine,rear wheel drive. Any fwd vehicle will not work. Pulling the side brake the entire track is not considered drifting. Awd is recommended for beggenners because of better control. True drifters in real life and on forza use rwd only. A beggenner car wld be s13. The coupe or hatch that is now available. Upgrade all of the engine components. Do not motor swap a r30 anything in a s13. Be wayyyy to much power for you as a amatuer. Next I wld go to car that has great amount of power stock, such as a viper,corvette. Then when you learn how to drift any car, go for a mazda rx7. The fc or fd wld be choice of a pro.

Sounds odd, but my best drift car would be the Mitsubishi Starion you can get near the game's start. Make sure your Mitsubishi affinity level's 100%; things get expensive! First, you'll want to install a different engine; go for the less powerful Eclipse engine, or it becomes too unmanageable. Then just max it out, find what tune works, and enjoy!
N.B. Installing 4WD/Forza adjustable wings, etc. Makes it more manageable, but I generally use RWD for drifts, and 4WD for gymkhana. And if you don't know what that is, Youtube 'ken block' gymkhana mega commercial. Have fun!

Here's a few tips:
1. The car is irrelevant, I got beat by a Ferrari enzo last night round hockenheim.
2. Don't buy tuning set ups as they are what someone else uses to drift with and probably is not suited to your style.
3. Power should be in the 500 to 800 bhp range and torque should be around 600 lb/ft to start with. After you get used to that, play around with more/ less power and torque until you're happy.
4. Never practise in online lobbys. Not worth the hassle. Use leaderboards to compare yourself instead.
5. Everyone has a favourite track where they learned how to drift. Mine was maple valley and I still test new cars out there. Turn one is very good for a shakedown and I generally know by the end of turn three weather I need to make any changes to my set up.
6. Drifting with some music helps. Choose a playlist - doesn't really matter what you listen to. But something fast usually helps me.
7. Have fun while doing it. The amount of people I see actually getting stressed out because their set up isn't quite right or they're not winning so they ram people off the track.
Hope this helps anyone struggling out there on drifting. Anyone has any questions, message or add me on xbl. Spyke10100.

I use E60 M5, R35 rwd, and the Jaguar XKRS. And if your can can use it convert to a twin-screw blower or twin turbos. You don't want a single turbo because of lag. And most inportantly try not to go over 650hp.

I use a dodge rampage, with around 900hp I believe, and no driving aids. RWD too. Doesn't need much tuning, but it's the best drifting car I've used so far. Not necessarily the best choice for beginners though, as it's hard to control.
My advice to beginners would be get a Nissan skyline, add power, make sure it's RWD, and turn off traction control. Maybe kepp stability control to start with though, and have a mostly back brake bias to help you turn start to drift. Although most highly powered RWD cars will drift moderately well without traction control.
Hope this helps

Really, it's not much of a matter of what car you're in. Like people have said, it's what works for you. I use a Datsun 510, a Mazda MX-5 and an M3 E36. They all drift like a charm, and all it takes is some simple tuning. The important thing is that you can find what car works for you, and improve it from there. Yes, torque should be higher than power, that does make it easier, but that isn't necessary. Just find a car you think will work, and work up from stock. That'll be the path to success.

I have over 200 drift cars and all I have to say is:

Use a RWD car
Make it have LOTS of horsepower
Keep torque line when upgrading AS FLAT AS POSSIBLE
Sport tires (thickest possible on front and rear)
Never go above S class

TUNE:

TIRES:F:30PSI
R:28PSI

ALIGNMENT:

CAMBER:F:0.5
R:0.5

TOE:F:2.5
R:-0.5

CASTER:7.0


GEARING: self preference

ANTI ROLL:F:where ever rear is at
R: same distance you moved front

SPRINGS: same concept as anti roll for damping aswell

DIFFERENTIAL: both 80%

This is the tune I run on every car

It works for me

Tweak tire rear pressure for more/less spin if not suited


GT: Flat 0ut

Seleen s331 supercabSmile I get 541hp 950torque and the think weighs almost 2 tons. With the weight you get a nice slide around the bend. Don't buy the nissan s15 :| the things is crap. Sure it's a drift car but it don't really drift. Try rwd muscle cars. They got the muscle and because they're rear wheel they slip real easy. And then again there's the born drift cars like the toyota GT apex but if you want something a little faster you're ganna want the rx-7. S15 is definately not a beginners car. Or try the koenigsegg ccgt it's R2 RWD. You'll get a real kick out of it. Its useless in a race.

I just tuned myself an Acura RSX, power output about 450, 480HP. Swapped to RWD, no areo, I suggest some TSW Trackstar 4's to go on it, sweet little car for slow drifts, good for people starting off maybe?

I will clear this up now: awd drifting is technically drifting, if you consider the science behind it. The problem with it is that awd drifting let's you use all four wheels to hold your drift, meaning there's no real throttle control or as much counter steer. Basically, it's frowned upon because it's so much easier to do than true rwd drifting. It's cheating, plain and simple. As for the best drift car, i'd say whatever works for you. I have an r34, Audi r8, Honda s2000, and a Pontiac trans am as my main drift cars. Anything rwd can at least somewhat drift. Just experiment and see what car and tuning works for you. Smile

I like the Nissan 240z and AE86. AE86 is my favorite. For beginners an FRS with around 350-375 HP is good.

I run an s607 240sx. Just fully upgrade a gtr r34 motor, race brakes, race suspension, race roll bars, race trans, race drive shafts and race diff. Also stock tires, middle front width and widest rears on 19 inch rims. Tune the gears so the top speed is 255.5 mph are mess with the suspension and tires to get it right for you. The car loves third gear around maple full.

I will warn you, this car is NOT good for beginners. If your not careful with the car, it will easily spin

It keeps spinning out because you have stock tires 😂

I use a 2011 Holden #1 Commodore VE. That has way more power (Arguable). You can drift something with close to 1,000 HP, just have to tune very specific to how you drive and obviously get the best breaks and springs and such lol their isn't any bad car to drift. First car I drifted, FWD hatchback lol learned my lesson that those suck epicly but I still drifted it for the longest time. 2nd car, Doge Charger RT 69'. That was great, got me into more power and tourqe. Then I drove and AWD BMW M5, then a skyline, then a supra, then a eclipse (went through a 2fast 2furious stage lol) and then I got my Holden. I can't say my Holden is any better than my first car (Toyota Pruis lmao) because I had them all so specific to how I drove. Drifting is really just driving once you get the tune down. Everybody's different, everyone will feel awkward in someone else's drift car. So find a car, any car you like, and play around with it. It takes a long time to get everything perfect. But after your first drifter, getting that stuff will be cake. I did my golden in like 2 days lol don't expect to be going against Aki Kimora your first day, it doesn't happen. Not for me or you or anyone. Unlike drag and grip, drifting takes so much patience to get right. Because once you get to the point where it works for you, nothing changes. Drag, you just want that little but more. Grip, just a few milliseconds faster. But when you find that perfect balance between tire burning, corner hugging, glowing red breaks and so much smoke you can choke out bob Marley with, and total control, your done. It's not the car, it's YOU!

The Bugatti Veyron is a good drifter... I love it, I'll let you guys decide, here's my set up, mangle with it all you want. Cheers.

All race parts... Stock tranny
Tires: 27.0 psi
Final drive: 3.10
Camber and toe front and rear: +4
Caster: 1.0 or 5.0
Roll bars: 24.5 and 20.0
Springs: 820.5 and 861.0
Ride height: 4.6
Rebound: 5.9 and 6.9
Bump: 4.8 and 5.5
Brakes: 45%
Force: 120%
Differential:
Front: 0/0
Rear: 90/60
Torque: rear 90%

Stay at about 70-90 mph, or second gear, don't even worry about downshifting in to 1st, you can start at 2nd gear and leave a turn with enough speed to go into 3rd. *Yes both cambers are in the positives, same as the toes... (somebody will ask that)*
**( On a separate set up I have the cambers set at the same numbers just rear is negative and toe is left untouched, them both are perfect for me.)

Most rwd cars will do with the tuning you prefer, some are harder to control, my top is Nissan skyline rwd, pontiac trans am, and some sort of bmw, they slide lovely, you need to test some for youself and try a little with the tuning based on what works and wha doesnt. I hope everyone who needs some knowlege, ill tell some little tips I like, not everyone, but it might work for you too:
The nm line has to be higher then the green line, I don't know to prenounce if in english, tirepressure, front 2.3 back 2.6, gears, the roster, the 3th or 4th gear has to be at the speed ij the middle, between wheels, it as to ne raised to max, 7. First camer to -0.8 , stabilators 18 and 24, differential 80 and 40,appliges for my sadly engish, when someone could explain it better in proper enlish, please, I hope this helped anyone, the class should be a or s class, not more than r3 and less than b, good luck to everyone

To be straight to the point I would suggest useing what is comfortable to you and that you can control well. Every one is different when it comes to drifting some use one car some change cars each track. I wouldn't pick something over 600 hp unless you can use it. Or if your like me you need some power like when I drift with my ccx. Just pick something you like and go from there you'll find a good drift car

Using AWD veichles defeats the purpose of drifting Anything FR (front engine.rwd) with an added tune would be the best way to jam

I either use the old Camaro, fully upgraded, stock engine and n/a. No tune needed but I lowered the front tyre pressure to 26 and the rears to 27.5. It holds lines like a dream. The other car I use is the Barracuda. It is fully upgraded with a supercharger. The tuning on this car is a little more complex but with some tinkering you should be able to get it right. I personally would suggest the Camaro for a beginner because it will spin out if you push too hard but it won't slide if you push too little. It teaches you the balance you need when drifting later on.
This is just what I would recommend but everyone has a car that suits them better, that's why I drift muscle cars.
If you want a little crash course in beginners drifting, send me a message on XBL
My GT is DakotaSnipeZZ
