If you mean a power steering system that has gone bad then it
would be hard to drift and stay in control. If you mean a car that
has been converted to manual steering, then yes its easy.

I have converted manual steering :) from a 2nd Gen. RX-7 :D

You can drift with power steering but it makes it alot harder. Hence why FC's drift so well...manual steering...same with some of the odler 240's ...I Think ? not sure about 240 but FC has manual steering, makes drift and sharp turns easier. atleast for me,

dont try it. im on the way back to the power steering system. you can do big high speed turns, but when it comes to tossign the car around on a tight course, its IMPOSSIBLE! i know it is, that wheel will take your hands off when it kicks back. do yourself a favor, and put ps back on! please

ive always wondered if youd be able to drift a mk3 without powersteering? any inputs?
I've done it before, but as other have said, its not a good idea. It REAL easy to let go of the wheel and lose control, not a good idea when sideways. If you are adamant about it, find a BIG mall parkinglot, and try it at night. stadiums work too. dont go near the lights, and try not to break a wrist.

Good practice is also a little dirt. :)

You may be able to do it if your superman or something, but NOT recommended with the stock supra steering rack and no power steering.

The wheel snaps back so quickly you can break a finger if you try to drift like that.. just do youself a favor and get powersteering... like 20 bucks for a pump at a junkyard...

or don't drift ... after all it's not a 240sx.
Oh, yeah, I forgot about section 8, rule 15, in Dori Dori's book of laws on drifting: it specifically states that only cars commonly seen in option videos can drift, which means MA70s are not able to drift.

I for one do not drift in my supra. It's sitting in my garage right now waitinf for the turbo engine from my old mkiii, but after that, once its running all nice, I will drift with power steering. I don't need the wrist exercise, thats what masturbating is for.
and boostedsrrt8six, what you said is some funny shit

I know when my PS went out in my MK3 T, it was almost impossible to turn in small speeds... I dont think its possbile with the stock steering without PS.

A "manual steering" mod would do the trick I guess..

The reason you don't see our cars in those videos..... is because our cars are friggin' tanks.

And also a little too long it feels. Like when I first drove my car, I needed to drive home through some snow.... and it feels like the rear end just goes CRAZY once it breaks loose.

It would be awesome to see our cars in some of those videos... but its just because it's too hard.

Oh, and when your PS system has gone bad.... you aren't just turning the wheels manually.... the whole PS system is still all hooked up, and that all is putting extra resistance on the wheel.

Yah right, all those magazines and videos only show the cars they show just cuz, but in real life a mk3 supra is a very very popular drift car in japan its just they hide it from us, its a secret. at all those drifting events that covered in mass by hundreds of people, websites, magazines, videos etc... they avoid taking pictures of certain cars at all costs. rx7, ae86, and silvia owners must have bought them off i guess....:rolleyes:

Just because it's not "popular" in Japan doesn't mean it isn't suitable. Look at it this way...what do you need to drift?

#1 Skills
#2 FR layout
#3 Enough power to modulate with the throttle

With the MA70, it's actually making it easier to drift. It's heavy so changes while at the limit occur slower (refer to Newton's laws of physics). Plenty of torque, no need to explain why that's good. It's rear wheel drive with an LSD. The weight distribution isn't even too bad. I think you don't see too many of them in videos for the fact that it is easy to drive. From what I've heard and experienced, RX7s and AE86s are a challenge to drift. The RX7 because of it's road track engineered suspension and short wheel base. The ae86 is a challenge because it's small, light, and it's not a torque monster with the 4a-ge.....even in modified forms. I claim to know a little about ae86s after owning three of them. :rolleyes:
