i have a na 88 targa top and im going to drift this damn thang...i was just wondering is it safe to drift an na targa top due to its lack of chasis support because it has no roof support really....will it like bend or twist the chasis if i try to drift it?

It won't bend or twist the chassis permanently, but you may notice some "flex" in the chassis (especially with the roof off) when cornering hard.

:rolleyes: wow. what is the world coming to. If you wanna make you car last, drifting is the last thing u should be doing. Its super hard on your engine, and drive train. Expect to break alot of stuff, trust me. And its DEF not safe to drift with ur taga off, its super easy to flip when drifting, Id sell ur poor supra and get a JDM tyte 240 or something that offers cheaper parts.

A harness bar should also help you out in the flex area
that why its an 8pt +
the + is harness bar, cross bar, door bars, etc
