    No LSD
    All you need for this kind of fun (FWD drift)
    1. Hand brake which works
    2. New 4x winter tires
    3. Car (HP doesnt meter as you can't put lot of HP on road "no grip")
    4. Downhill covered with snow
    3. Fined mountain road without 2 much traffic (which should be easy)
    5. Make sure road is closed or use some communication to know when is good to go
    When we not filming we do it at night as whole forest lights when headlights comeing from other way
    6. And last but not least you need a lot of practice on parking lot covered with snow useing cones to create your drift track
    When you will be able 2 do all your cones track without error you are good to go
    Give friend to create your track as you can put cones like you prefer which will not help you learn

    You are absolutely right :Smile:
    If someone are not that brave he can do it on parking lot with no danger , but with mountain road comes excitement(much more fun in nice environment mountain forest than on flat parking lot) & danger (which produce lot more fun as you know you can't do errors) For me personally parking lot is boring training ground which must be done but not so much fun part
    Like you say all need plenty of practice not easy but worth it, if you have some mountains near place where you live :Smile: Best way for fun without grip in winter when summer come we switch on time attacks and some mountain racing

    In the UK we don't have much opportunity at all to do something like that, car parks sure, but all of big hillside routes hardly get any snow. I'd imagine the Scottish Highlands would be the best place.

    Yea without snow you can't do it with FWD
    Only thing which can help is RWD drift car :Smile:
    But that is expensive sport
    Car need at least 300hp per tone to be able to do dry drifts correctly(which cost a lot) and when you got your car still will cost you much ,for one single day of drift you will burn pair of rear tires and you will consume 4x more fuel than on snow drift also not to mention how much more stress to your engine,suspension and body on dry surface drift in other words driveing & maintenance of drift car cost a lot

    Yeah for sure, with Honda you're almost limited to the S2000 or NSX for RWD in stock form (and both are quite reknowned for being very planted for RWD cars), but there's a few other rare JDM RWD Hondas too.

    I'd never before really considered snow as a platform to go drifting in a FWD model, you get some converted RWD turbo Hondas in the drift scene mind.

    I always wondered why honda not bring some RWD in better price range than S2000&NSX with all those 90s models on FWD legend,Civic,CR-X,accord,Integra & Prelude
    They should put RWD on Prelude as was only model with Integra(EU in japan you have 4dr Integra R) as only coupe
    On this way Honda is rare drift machine :Frown:
    Maybe in future i make some conversation on 3gen Prelude to RWD with S2000 engine and rear suspension 2 use same differential as S2000 that will be dream come true :Smile:
    Now you wonder why no S2000
    Swap is kinda more cool and rare with that much more joy to drive it for me

    Yeah I agree, I'd love to see more RWD Honda. There is tons of AWD Honda, and the yanks get a few with decent performance, but here in Europe we don't get much aside from the large SUVs.

    There's been a few Prelude, Integra and Civic RWD conversions over the years - but I can't imagine they'd be particularly balanced or planted considering the chassis.

    Considering the S2000 engine was the basis for the K-Series, I'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard to use a mix of S2000 and K20/K24 parts for a pretty good little drift car :Smile:

    You can get balance with adjust suspension useing weight meter for all 4 wheels to get 50:50 weight distribution

    High performance shocks can be adjusted to make ideal weight distribution useing weight meter on all 4 wheel at same time and adjust it to have same weight on every wheel
