Just a few questions for you guys.

Post  AEZ31 on Fri Jan 16, 2009 10:44 am

I joined this site to meet some koo individuals and learn to drift in the same process...but I have to admit...im a lil affraid of what will go on my car first. Drifting runs your car pretty hard right? Well what (besides transmission) can i expect to break or potentially be a problem to look out for?

First of all you'll need tires.

I'm not familiar with Z31's but I recommend you check out your suspension and make sure they are strong enough to withstand abuse. and beef up parts as needed.

yeah where do u guys get your tires from?? As for as suspension goes im not sure as well. My suspension is adjustable from the inside but not sure on how much abuse they can take. my best bet is to go with something aftermarket.

What Tire sizes are you looking for?

Since you're just starting out its not really necessary to upgrade suspension but better to replace shit before they break ya know what I mean?

Only thing that happened to my 240 was popping tires. You'd think drifting would do a lot of wear and tear on the car but as long as you don't redline it it's fine. But, just go to your local mexican tire shop and get the used ones for 15$ a piece you just burn them off anyways

^^Don't repair it. You had a short screw in between the thread that didn't even penetrate the tire. Your good homie, Jose said so ha ha!

The link makes some good overall suggestions about how to build a reliable car, AEZ31 was asking about reliability when he's asked what he can expect to break.

I'm pretty sure it means the tread falls off the tire.
