why this people in these videos can do that??? i did it and my car fail , now ithe diferential is damaged,

please check,

can i do that with an stock e46????


thanks.
So your goal is to turn it into a race car?

You heard what you did because most here sort of assumed that you were new here, just got the car, are learning to drive a manual, and don't have another car as a daily driver.

Do you mind if I ask approximately how much $ you have to invest in the car as a dedicated drifter? Assume, no matter what you do, you'll be spending a lot on tires, so you'll want to get sponsors or have a lot of money.

On the street, you'll run into things and thus need money for wheels, suspension parts, etc.

The engine and interior compartment will be fine, though you'd need to reinforce the subframe...you don't 'need' the $5000 bmw repair, but could probably get something decent done for around $1000.

If it's going to be pushed hard, you'll want to research getting harder everything too. I don't know about how much welding a diff costs, but I do know I can get my back out by turning off asc/dsc...especially on wet curvy roads!

I won't drift, though. I have kids and like seeing them...but not hitting them...or yours!

Please have a beer and read the posts again, but this time, pretend someone else started the thread. You'll find it both very funny and informative!

Serious...don't be mad. You kind of seem that way now!

jdc,

So you know where I'm coming from, I'm 55 and still alive, so they tell me.

I'm smarter than most, type really quickly, and love my car. I'm going to try one time to translate what you've heard and help you understand why it would be best for you to get another plan for fun with your car.

First, it's an amazing car, and you don't know that fully yet. Drifting is something I wouldn't do with my car because I don't have the money I know that would cost...especially...especially if I only did a little of it.

Drifting and not wrecking the car is not something you just do because you think the car could be made to do it. If you think like that, and you do because you started this thread, then I can assure you that you yourself are not experienced enough to be able to do that yet. Racing itself takes years to be able to do well and safely. For fun, you can find a local track and begin by taking lessons.

You could drift a smart car, but that's not what it's made for.

But more this...you need to begin reading fanatics much more...not just about what you care about, but about the issues you'll have with the car anyway, and which you need to be prepared for.

In two years you can get your car right, and I'm guessing there's a lot that needs to be done to ensure it's reliable...but maybe I'm wrong.

If you don't have a lot of money, nor have another car, just work on turning your car into the bmw it was out of the factory, master the handling of the car in just normal, fun driving.... I think you'll love the car, but seeing your opening post makes me pretty sure that right now your car isn't all bmw...part of that is the car and I think part of that is you.

If you go into a turn thinking what gear you should be in, or are still fiddling with the washer controls, or listen to the radio instead of the car, I think more time with your car is needed. You're still getting in your car; I'm one with mine...except I still have to turn the steering wheel occasionally!

Trying to help...and so is everyone. My apologies if you're over 40 and filthy rich...if so, happy to help all I can with helping you achieve your dream...otherwise, hold on the dream and work on the car's fundamentals and wash it really well.

If she knew what you just wrote, she'd fail to crank tomorrow unless you wash thoughts like those off. They do know what you think, you know. Fortunately, they can't really read quite yet!

OP, see what I mean. If shake wasn't talking about you, you'd think this a very funny post!

Drift on! Let no one keep you from your dream. Buy your "coilovers, and then lsd. itsworth." Good luck! My daring new friend!

Here's something for your masturbatory pleasure:



Have fun!

So that's a hypothetical at the moment, I suppose.

You're not asking me that, are you. I don't want to ruin this thread...but would be glad to otherwise generally chat about it!

That took me 10 secs. to type...or thereabouts. Now maybe 13...

Someday I hope my thinking catches up with my typing!

Troll?

He's a fellow fanatic with a dream. We're here to help him make it a lucid dream without whatever drug the guys use for doing that.

Where would this place be without trolls? Just what kind of fanatics fantasy do you have?

We can save this kids thousands of dollars. He'll start reading others threads and realize what he has in store, and I know he'll do maintenance before sliding out into tree.

The usual wager on the calendar? I'm going with August 4. (OP, be careful that day...and if you don't mind...do you happen to have heated leather sport seats in beige?
