    If you have drifted a 240, and still want to drift a corolla, you are part of a small crowd of crazy nut bags and should be committed...

    I could not believe how much easier it is do slide an S-chassis in comparison to a Corolla. But, that taken into consideration I don't ride the bandwagon, my vehicles are different from the average drift car/4x4. It takes more skill, money, and time; but at the end of the day I'm happy as hell in my Corolla. It's more a lifestyle than anything really.

    if you have no where to work, and aren't prepped to work- you should not participate in any form of motorsport.


    the chances of you breaking something SIMPLE like a tie rod or water pump are very large...if you can't manage to fix that- you're going to be spending 100% of your time beside your car, on a flatbed tow truck. paying shops to fix problems like that, gets exponentially expensive.


    regardless of what car you own, you need: a suitable place to work, a full set of tools (wrenches and sockets/ratchets), a jack and jackstands/blocks of some sort, rags, hammers, screw drivers, etc. all very simple, but required.


    without the basics, you're hopeless..

    In Toyota, we rust.

    This!

    you either need a place to do it.. or lots of money to pay some else to do it.

    -username is always-sideways, so he's never been sideways. Buy a CRV and get 90 degree drift.

    240SX it is.... bolt on parts requiring no skill to install, cheap as dog poop, JDM tyte drift can. You were made for each other.

    I'm going to step up and give you the real advice, because you're pretty much getting thugged to the point of oblivion right now, and you might be 15 so I feel kindof bad for you.

    There isn't much reason to buy a AE86 anymore, because cool japanese cars are everywhere and are very cheap.
    I bought a Corolla because I met people who had them, and they were way cooler than people with 240's at the time.
    Some were big into autoX and some were big into drifting and most were actually good at driving. I didn't have a place to work on my stuff, but I did so in my back alley for a long time.

    If you have friends with garages and cool cars, you need to be good to them - They will help your ass out big time.


    I bought an 86 and it broke on the way home 10km down the road. Expect this to happen 5 times a month until you have replaced everything. Then if you drive it all year long, expect the same to happen on long trips at the most inappropriate moments. If you can't adapt and ******-rig something on the fly to get your ass there, you will have to learn or be destroyed.

    Lots of people don't have the guts or stupidity to drive an ae86. They are straight up slow, ugly (or at least are for years until you get it right), and a pain in the ass. They're kindof fun to drive though.

    That's all I have to say about that.

    Please chose something other than an AE86 to destroy.

    Unless you are a little crazy, and a glutton for punishment.
    Oh and you don't feel the need to procreate

    If you're the type of person who's going to have a broken car it doesn't matter is you get an AE86 or S13. They are both going to break all the time and look like crap.

    I've seen busted AEs and I've seen even more busted S13s. The S13 kids out here are just as bad as the 86 guys. 86 will take way more of a beating and keep going though.

    Either car that you get, an SR20 and coilovers is all you need to make it good. It's much easier to do for an s13 though.

    S13=easy make good
    AE86=hard to make good

    But when an 86 is good...omg the fun. omg. S13 will always be boring.
    Anyone that has moved on from the chassis always has mixed feelings. Ya it's a bitch to keep it going, but it's very rewarding.

    But the difference between a broken S-chassis and a broken AE86 is that you are almost guaranteed to have the part you need for an s13 on every end of your city; a Corolla, you're going to be waiting for the mailman.

    86 to 89 is 3 years. They are both getting rare.
    But ya, there are probably more S13s around. Parts are cheaper too, especially aftermarket.
