  • E39 M5 had an lsd, and it could be swapped into the E39 540i. The 740i also had an LSD that fit the E39 540i. You could swap E39 540i rear end into a 525/528/530 for an LSD also.

    Caleb CrossmanCaleb Crossman26 giorni fa
  • as the owner of an e39 m5, they are impeccable drift cars but will break every 40-70K miles. they were the last of the naturally aspirated v8 luxury drivers cars and in order to keep them competitive, they cut weight by making everything out of plastic and its all pretty brittle at this point, but love the shit out of the car

  • I’ve done some genuinely irresponsible things in S10s, I agree wholeheartedly with their usability as driftmobiles. I don’t know the first thing about actual drifting (like official events), but I’ve done and seen done a HELL of a lot of it in empty parking lots and around bends on country roads in those little funboxes.

  • The Chevrolet S-10 also happens to have an even cheaper relative in the GMC S-15, a.k.a., the Jimmy. Moreover, this was also the same sort of chassis that the legendary GMC Syclone and GMC Typhoon were built upon as well. I also have a few more underrated drift cars as well for people that are on here. 1. The Fifth Generation (from 1984 to 1988) Chevrolet Nova/First Generation Holden Nova (from 1988 to 1994) - now I know what you are thinking, "Is this a joke? This car is just a crappy econo box that took a big dump on a legendary American muscle car name! How dare you say that this car is a good one"! Well, at first, I thought this way about this car as well, but then I found out not only about its practically identical Australian cousin, which is the Holden Nova, which was also made around the same time, and I also found out that it is related to the Geo/Chevrolet Prism, the Suzuki Swift, the Toyota Tazz (Tazz, as in the former professional wrestler turned commentator, might want to watch out from lawsuits from Toyota), and the Toyota Corolla. Do you know what legendary cars are also built upon the same frame as the Fifth Generation Chevrolet Nova, First Generation Holden Nova, Fifth and Sixth Generations (a.k.a., E80 and E90) of the Toyota Corolla, Toyota (Japan) Tazz, Suzuki Swift, and the Geo/Chevrolet Prism? The answers are the Toyota Corolla Levin, the Toyota Sprinter, and the Toyota Sprinter AE86 Trueno, you know, tuner/drifter legends that literally are in the Initial D franchise, as well as also helped the underground racing scene of the 1980s to the modern era. Seriously, the Toyota Tazz, Toyota Corolla, Fifth Generation Chevrolet Nova, First Generation Holden Nova, and the Geo/Chevrolet Prism are rocking MASSIVE tuner/drifter/racer/rally potential here, AND for a fraction of the price as their more famous variants. (Yes, I like the old-school Chevrolet Nova as well, but the last Chevrolet Nova is a nice car with a lot of up side if it is handled right.) 2. The Eighth Generation Mercury Cougar - despite looking like a Third Generation (3G) Mitsubishi Eclipse, as well as often being mistaken for one, and having both shared, as well as independent, platforms, from Ford vehicles (namely the Ford Mustang and the Ford Thunderbird), this vehicle has a lot of up sides for being a completely underrated, as well as under the radar, drifter/tuner king, even more so than the Seventh Generation Mercury Cougar/Tenth Generation Ford Thunderbird. Also, this vehicle is called the Ford Cougar everywhere else in the world and the platform that this vehicle is on is also shared by the Ford (USA) Contour, Mercury Mystique, and the Ford (UK) Mondeo, so take that however you will. 3. The entire Ford Fox Body platform - seriously, go check out their lesser known variants! The Second and Third Generations of the Mercury Capri, the Fourth Generation (USA/Canada) of the Ford (USA/Canada) LTD, the Second Generation Ford (USA/Canada) Granada, the Mercury Zephyr, the Second Generation of the Ford Durango, the Ford (Mexico) Fairmont, the Ford (Mexico) Zephyr, the Mercury Zephyr Villager station wagon/estate car/shooting brake, the Ford Fairmont Futura, the Ford (Mexico) Fairmont Squire, the Seventh Generation Lincoln Continental, the Ford (USA/Canada) Granada L, the Ford (USA/Canada) Granada GL station wagon/estate car/shooting brake, the Fifth Generation Mercury Cougar, the Lincoln Mark VII, and the Lincoln Continental Mark VII are all worth mentioning here as well, plus they also share many parts throughout the entire Fox Body platform, including even parts from the Third and Fourth Generations of the Ford Mustang, as well as the Eighth through Tenth Generations of the Ford Thunderbird, and the Fifth through Seventh Generations of the Mercury Cougar/Mercury Cougar XR7. 4. The Vauxhall Nova/Opel Corsa Series A/B/C/D/E/F - seriously, these cars have massive up sides to tuning, drifting, and track capabilities. 5. Ford (UK) Escort - sure, it is a rally champ, but it is also a surprisingly good tuner/drifter/track car as well. 6. Ford (North America) Escort/Mercury Topaz - these cars might not be well respected, but that does not make them bad platforms to turn into drifter/tuner/track/rally beasts. 7. First Generation Opel GT/Buick GT by Opel - these cars are decent little roadsters, but they can also become muscle car beasts, as well as track/tuner/drifter/rally beasts as well. 8. First Generation Ford Capri/Mercury Capri - whatever applies to the Buick/Opel GT also applies to this vehicle. 9. Saab 9-6 - this vehicle is easily an underrated track/tuner/drifter gem with tons of up sides. 10. Volvo 240/Volvo 200 series - this series of vehicles also are underrated tuner/drifter/track gems with tons of up sides. Finally, if you want to look at examples of people tuning up these cars, just look up the names of them on ITworlds, as well as elsewhere, online, and see if they do not do that sort of thing to them all the time.
