Good luck trying to drift on public roads.
You're going to kill yourself.

FYI dont ask these kinds of questions in the race car forum, use 2nd gen section. Also search, there has been plenty of threads on this.

Don't weld the diff. If you really want it to be easier, add a clutch-type.

And before all of that, you're going to need skill. You can throw all the parts you want at the car, but if you can't get the back out, it's just wasted money. Especially with the low initial power of an NA FC; it makes it much harder versus just relying on gobs of HP/TQ.

AE86 cars aren't very powerful, it's still skill and practise you need most.

both still need skill. The FC likes to grip, so you need alot of speed, and the steering angle isnt the greatest, so youll need to modify for that. It just takes some time to learn on it. The 86 is the best car to learn in, because it makes you learn the basics.

you should put rims with nice low profile tires on that list. and an lsd. i had an 86 for a while and it was pretty to get it loose, stock....keeping it under control was another story though. good luck
