[DMCForum] Re: Newdelorean.com? or is it new Delorean.com

As my buddy says, "Sure, we used to drift all the time back in Iowa.
It's called 'driving in the winter'..."

I wouldn't reccomend using a *stock* DeLorean for drifting. It's got a
no rear sway bars, and a good weight ratio for spinning circles around
your competition (literally). But you'd bust the Trailing Arm Bolts in
no time at all.

If you were serious about wanting to drift a DeLorean, you'd need to
either install hyme joints in a boxed-in encasement, or some heavy
duty brackets like Dave Bauerly sells to grip the bolts on both sides,
and spread the load out evenly. As well as some Toby Tabs too. Which
is pretty much what I plan on doing, since I've been thinking about
entering my car into some drifing competitions as well. ;)
