the car has to be a rear wheel drive and must have good torque at low and high Rpms . well the suspension will require tuning up regularly

Actually, ANY RWD can be drifted. Not for long periods, though. Sliding is easy. Drifting is hard. Maintaining the slides at various angles require powerful engines, poor tyres, and immense control...rather lack of control..

Sliding in a conty is fun. Especially in grass. You can't call it drifting because you can't maintain the slide angles, but still. Even the Fiats, especially the 118 NE's, are fun too...

Its is difficult though but not impossible.....american muscles have a strong hand on acceleration and has bags of grips but drifting not a kids game
